Dry, eczema-prone skin

The difference between dry and eczema-prone skin. Two concerns, one advice.

Dry skin

Dry skin

Dry skin is often caused by overly aggressive care products that disrupt the outer layer of the skin, causing the skin to lose too much moisture. This leads to redness and flaking. Heredity, medication, stress and environmental factors also play a role.


  • Your skin feels dry and rough.
  • You suffer from a tight feeling after washing.
  • Your skin shows flakes, fine lines and sometimes even cracks.
  • You have a dull complexion.


Eczema-prone skin is a chronic condition in which an overactive immune system causes inflammation and damage to the skin barrier. This results in extremely dry, itchy and irritated areas. Eczema is influenced by genetic factors and environmental factors such as allergens and stress.

Characteristics :

  • Your skin itches intensely
  • You have red, often inflamed spots
  • The skin is flaky and dry
  • Blisters and moist spots may develop

Our advice

Mild, gentle care

Wash your skin with a mild soap, without sulfates, that does not dry out or damage the skin barrier. Self's body wash is pH neutral, gentle on the skin and contains no synthetic substances.

Use the body scrub as a sea salt in your bath water (2 to 3 spoons) and then apply the intensely nourishing body butter to your skin. The combination of these three products will intensely nourish and restore the skin barrier.

The power of our body care

  • The high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins protect the skin against dryness and other extreme conditions and have a restorative effect.
  • Complex fatty acids such as allantoin and cinnamon acid strengthen the barrier function of the skin, just like Vitamin E.
  • The sterols present retain moisture in the skin.
  • Ferulic acid increases the effectiveness of other vitamins, reduces large pores and stimulates collagen production.
  • Salicylic acid reduces flakes, redness and softens the stratum corneum.
  • Lauric and Capric Acid form the natural protective layer of the skin. They have an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Vitamin B ensures the production of the essential building blocks of the skin.

How do you care for dry skin?



Use mild products
Your skin needs help to repair the damaged skin barrier. Go for mild care that does not further damage the skin layer. Use care products and creams that are nourishing and rich, penetrate deep into the skin and repair it from within. Natural products are recommended.

Eat a balanced diet
An unbalanced diet can promote dry skin. Due to a shortage of proteins and certain fats on your plate, these nutrients may also be insufficient in your skin cells. Eat healthy and balanced. Your skin will thank you.


Aggressive products
Stay away from products with harsh ingredients or high alcohol. They damage the barrier function of the skin. The older we get, the more difficult it is for your body to recover. The result is known: moisture escapes from the skin and bacteria find their way in. Natural products also often contain alcohol. Always check the ingredients list.

Avoid hot baths and showers. These will unnecessarily dry out the skin. A water temperature of 32 degrees is ideal.
