Searching for dry skin solutions? You’re not alone. Over 75% of Americans* are living with uncomfortable symptoms like excessive dryness, sensitivity, and itching. We sat down with board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lian Mack, MD to learn about common dry skin conditions and why she recommends a range of Eucerin® products to treat them. Read on to see the science behind Dr. Mack’s solutions and find out which Eucerin product is right for you.

I see patients struggling with issues like dry, dull, and itchy skin almost every day. Whether they’re tending to sensitive skin or managing chronic skin conditions, one thing I stress, time and again, is the importance of moisturizing—but people skip it because they don’t like the feeling of lotion on their skin, or they don’t have time (or patience!) to constantly reapply. Many wait until their dry skin gets worse to seek advice or treatment.
Eucerin products provide an elegant solution. These gentle formulas help to repair the skin’s moisture barrier without creating an unwanted film. While my patients’ skin needs vary just as much as their personalities, Eucerin is always my first recommendation for those seeking not just fast soothing relief, but a long-term solution they can count on when their skin needs it most.
Recommended for: Dry, tight, and flaky skin I recommend Eucerin Advanced Repair products for my patients who suffer from dry, itchy, flaky skin. This formula contains ceramides and Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) that help to immediately relieve dry skin and provide long lasting hydration. It prevents dryness from reoccurring and increases the skin’s moisture. Apply Eucerin Advanced Repair after your daily shower or bath to help to lock in moisture with a bit of indulgence.
Recommended for: Dry, dull, ashy, and flaky skin A lot of my patients with dry, dull skin tell me, ‘I want my skin to be smooth and hydrated; I want my glow back!’ I tell them to try Eucerin Intensive Repair Lotion, which intensely moisturizes and immediately restores the skin’s radiance. This rich lotion contains buffered Alpha Hydroxy and NMFs. It gently exfoliates and improves the moisture reservoir in the deeper layers of the skin’s surface, revealing healthy-looking and supple skin. The water-in-oil formula leaves skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.
Recommended for: Rough and bumpy skin on arms and legs Rough and bumpy skin is one of the most frustrating dry skin conditions and can really affect your confidence. The Eucerin Roughness Relief formulas are ideal for those who have these problematic areas of dry skin. Eucerin Roughness Relief is enriched with Urea, which softens and smooths rough patches. Ceramides and NMFs also hydrate the skin and help prevent moisture loss over time.
Recommended for: Eczema-prone skin Those who suffer from eczema know how difficult it is to find an effective solution. I recommend the Eucerin Eczema Relief Body Cream as an everyday treatment for patients looking to help calm their eczema flare-ups now and reduce them over time. It contains ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, a skin protectant, ceramides, and licorice root extract, and is designed to relieve dryness and itchiness, help soothe irritation, and strengthen the skin’s barrier.

Recommended for: Dry, itchy skin on arms and legs I absolutely love the Skin Calming cream and recommend it as an everyday moisturizer for my patients with dry and sensitive skin. This formula is enriched with natural colloidal oatmeal and soothing moisturizers that help to calm and prevent dry, itchy skin. Eucerin Skin Calming Cream also helps to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier over time.
Moisturizing daily will help prevent dry, flaky, and rough skin. In addition to moisturizing with Eucerin, I recommend that patients stay adequately hydrated and use a humidifier during the colder months. The skin is the largest organ of the body, yet many people neglect it. Take care of your skin—it will thank you!
