FAQ

Dry skin: why are hands, knees, elbows and heels affected?
Dry hands: too frequent washing of the hands tends to dry the skin. If hands are not rinsed and dried thoroughly, they develop dryness, desquamation (also known as skin peeling) and redness. This inflammation of the skin is called dermatitis, or “contact dermatitis”, and can lead to a certain contact eczemas (eczemas caused by repeated expose of the skin to allergens or irritants). The skin requires adequate care to avoid its drying up.

Elbows, forearms, and knees: these are also areas of the body suffering from extra dry skin. These zones are subject to rubbing (skin rubbing against clothes due to repeated movements throughout the day), resulting in a thickening of the skin. Desquamating cells (cells that are supposed to shed) accumulate, giving the skin a “greyish” and dry appearance.

Feet: feet are also subject to rubbing of the skin, as well as repeated shocks. The use of “flip-flops” have lead to the thickening of the skin on the heels. Cracks also appear on this extra-dry skin.
