dry skin


Dry skin and its many causes To prevent excessive moisture loss through our skin we have a natural barrier composed of a thin lipid film on the skin which reduces the harmful effects of water and the even more important structural lipids, rich in linoleic acid situated between the corneocytes. The structural lipids connect the cells in a way that is flexible and stable at the same time – as stable as a brick wall in fact. Intact protective skin barrier protects moisture content

More moisture loss

Loss of lipids results in a break­down in skin barrier function. The skin loses a large amount of water and dries out

So bacteria and harmful substances have no ­opportunity to penetrate the intact skin. However, if the structural lipids are removed, by too ­frequent washing and showering, for example, or if they are not produced in sufficient quantities as occurs in ageing skin or with atopic dermatitis, the corneocytes become detached from one another and gaps develop in the skin’s protective barrier. Regardless of whether there is an internal or ­external cause the result is always the same – dry, flaky and chapped skin which is more prone to inflammation, itching and eczema. It is essential, therefore, to protect the skin from a break-down in barrier function and to ­counteract lipid and moisture losses. For dry or sensitive skin in particular, two skin care components are ­acknowledged to be vital for this: the special l­ipids and essential linoleic acid. The latter must be ­supplied regularly, just like a vitamin, for the skin to stay healthy.


Moisturising dry skin correctly The mistaken belief that applying cream regularly reduces the skin’s natural lipid production has long been disproved medically. It is not uncommon, however, for too small a quantity of cream to be used, with the result that there is no ­critical ­improvement in the skin’s condition and no significant ­reduction in the risk of a new attack of atopic dermatitis. Depending on the condition of the skin, applying cream just once a day is simply not enough. It should be applied at least twice a day. This is particularly applicable to areas of skin severely affected by dryness. The lipid content of the various Linola specialities, therefore, is graduated according to the dryness of the skin. A really reliable sign of whether you have applied the correct amount of cream is itching. Skin itches more if the amount of cream used or the frequency with which it was applied was too low.

You can see from the table how much lotion is optimally recommended by doctors and hospitals. The amount of cream that fits on the fingertip of the index finger of an adult is used as a simple measure. This is enough to treat an area of skin approximately twice the size of an adult’s palm. It is also important to apply the lotion not just once per day, but at least twice, as the skin can only ­absorb a limited amount of oil at a time.
