The skin oiling is not the appropriate way to care for all skin types, but for people with dry skin, and especially for atopic skin, this kind of treatment is useful. However, it is worth to know how and with what properly oil the skin.


Emollients are preparations which serve to oil and moisturize the skin. We meet them in the form of ointments, creams, salves, lotions, etc. They effectively support treatment and skin care. Emollients act in a way that they form on the skin surface an oil layer, which blocks evaporation from its surface. In addition, they works as a kind of grease, and thanks to them the skin seems to be smooth and slippery. After absorbing into the skin, emollients keep water by blocking the channels through which it is normally drained to the outside. At the same time, the moisture absorption from the environment, making the surface of the skin constantly moisturized. Emollients are available in pharmacies without a prescription.
