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.

Pharmacist Eamonn Brady from Whelehans Pharmacy explains that good food sources of niacin include brown rice, wholemeal bread, and bran.
