How to care atopic skin in winter

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, relapsing and highly itching skin disorder.

Atopic subjects have a reduced content of ceramides and other lipids in the stratum corneum, which leads to a reduced capability of the latter to retain and bind water. As a consequence, skin hydration decreases while trans-epidermal water loss increases because water evaporates more quickly from the damaged stratum corneum.

Furthermore, impaired stratum corneum can induce the release of cytokines and pro-inflammatory factors causing inflammation, redness and the appearance of eczemas or dermatitis.


Why does atopic dermatitis worsen in winter?

It is not yet entirely clear which environmental factors exacerbate or alleviate atopic dermatitis. However, it has been observed that temperature fluctuations during seasonal changes lead to a worsening of symptoms, while cold and windy conditions can cause dehydration of facial and hand skin more easily.

It's not only atmospheric agents, though; the indoor environment at home or workplace also impacts the course of atopic dermatitis during winter months as indoor heating tends to create a dry environment that is not suitable for atopic-prone skin.
