Intermittent itching can occur in very dry and sensitive skin. So it's natural to want to scratch it. But this brings only temporary relief, and prolongs skin barrier deficiencies. The impaired skin barrier then lets irritants and allergens penetrate more easily. These cause renewed itching, and an even stronger urge to scratch... and so begins a vicious circle.
Hydration restores the hydrolipidic film and restructures the skin barrier. Remember to deeply moisturize your skin at least once a day, even if at times you have the impression your skin is less in need of hydration. In this case, light but nonetheless ultra-moisturizing formulas like LIPIKAR Gel-Fluide are ideal.
Remember to eliminate allergens as much as possible (dust, mites). Choose suitable hypoallergenic products (cleansing and skin care). Eat a healthy diet (rich in vitamins A, C and E and in essential fatty acids). Do not overheat your home in the winter, and air rooms regularly. Prefer lukewarm showers to baths, and always opt for hypoallergenic products.
