Dry skin is a very normal skin condition especially to older individuals. How do you identify the symptoms of dry skin?
Itchiness is the key symptom of having dry skin. Besides, if you feel that the skin of your face became tight after cleansing, it means you’re having dry skin. Cracks and fissures may occur when skin dryness is severe.
On the other hand, Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a chronic skin condition that causes itchy inflammation and most often affects infants and young children. It is not easy to treat eczema as there are many factors that can aggravate it. Among the factors are dry skin, stress, sweat, pollution, temperature and food such as milk, fish, soy, egg and wheat.
In order to improve both dry skin and eczema, a good skincare regime is very important. Products that are unsuitable will worsen skin condition and cause further inflammation to the already sensitive skin.

Our second speaker of the day, Ms. Florence Chan, Senior Product Manager of OTC Dermatology Unit at Stiefel explains why Physiogel is the best solution for dry skin and eczema patients.

I know what you’re probably wondering right now about Physiogel.
What is so special about Physiogel? There are many moisturisers available in pharmacies, over-the-counter, etc. that promises hydration. Why Physiogel?
Firstly, Physiogel is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores), soap-free and doesn’t contain any colourant, perfume and preservatives, making it gentle enough for inflamed sensitive skin.
I know, still not impressive enough right? The most special part is this: Physiogel’s innovative Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) technology contains ceramide and other physiological lipids that mimic the lipids found within our skin to repair dehydrated skin naturally unlike other moisturisers that use oil-water emulsifiers. Plus, it rehydrates the skin by locking in moisture for up to three days.
We were shown some testimonial videos on how Physiogel has helped a few patients that has severe dry skin condition until it affected their daily lifestyle. They’re skin condition improved dramatically after few weeks usage of Physiogel.
Price wise could be a bit pricey but from the feedbacks I received from my family members, Physiogel product really works!
