What is Eucerin Intensive?

Eucerin Intensive is a moisturiser which contains the active ingredient Urea. It is intended for people with dry skin conditions such as:

  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Ichthyosis
  • Keratoderma
  • Keratosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Xeroderma

How does dry skin develop?

Dry skin develops when the natural oils (lipids) within the outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum) are diminished. The oils act as an impermeable protective layer which prevents the water from escaping the skin, keeping the skin hydrated.

While dry skin can develop as we get older, it can also be caused by washing for too long or too often, using soaps which contain irritants like perfumes, or as a side effect of other medicines.

The condition can appear anywhere on the body including:

  • Behind the knees
  • Buttocks
  • Face (especially the cheeks)
  • Feet
  • Hands
  • Inside the elbows

How can I tell if I have dry skin?

Aesthetically, dry skin can cause the affected areas of skin to appear red, inflamed, pale, flaky and scaly. These patches of skin may be itchy and sensitive to the touch. In some cases, the skin may break open which not only causes pain and further irritation, but opens the skin to infections too.

This is common in the case of cracked heels. Cracked heels happen when the skin around the heel dries out. As the skin stretches and moves when you walk, the brittle skin breaks and cracks. This can make daily activities such as walking, running or simply standing painful.

How effective is eucerin?

In studies, Eucerin Intensive was shown to be effective at rehydrating eczema prone skin to normal levels when used twice daily for 7 days. Subjects reported a noticeable improvement in their eczema after 4 weeks of continuous use.

How does Eucerin Intensive work?

Eucerin Intensive contains a substance called urea. When applied to the skin, urea disperses into the skin where it softens and loosens the hard skin.

The active ingredient (urea) is combined with a moisturiser which provides a protective layer of oil on the skins surface.

When used regularly, Eucerin Intensive can keep the skin hydrated for longer and replenish the natural protective barrier which keeps moisture from escaping.

How do I use Eucerin Intensive?

Eucerin Intensive is a topical lotion which is applied directly to affected areas of skin.

Wash and dry the area of skin you will be applying the lotion to.

Apply a small amount of the lotion to your skin and gently massage the lotion until it is completely absorbed by your skin.

How often should I apply Eucerin Intensive?

Eucerin Intensive should be applied twice daily to affected areas for the best results.

Do not apply the lotion to broken or inflamed skin.
