Aveeno oil is effective for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and senile pruritus (itchy skin). If you are unsure whether Aveeno is suitable for your skin condition, you can speak to one of our online doctors.
The outermost layer of skin (also known as the stratum corneum) has a layer of natural fats and oils (lipids) which prevent moisture from escaping, and keeps the skin hydrated. Too much washing can wash this protective layer away, allowing the skin to dry out easily.
