Moisturising is key for dry skin conditions

Evaporation of water on the skin leads to dry skin conditions like eczema. Skin hydration is a key component of their overall management. Lotions which have a high water and low oil content can worsen dry skin via evaporation and trigger a flare up of the disease. However, thick creams like Whelehans Moisturising Cream which have a low water content, or ointments (eg petroleum jelly, emulsifying ointment), which have zero water content, will better protect against dry skin.
