Often, we take the simple joys of life, including our health and that of our skin, for granted, only realising and appreciating the sense of confidence, comfort, and overall well-being it gives us once it changes. Healthy skin feels smooth, supple, and free from discomfort, contributing to mental and emotional well-being, fostering a sense of self-assurance and allowing individuals to engage with the world more confidently. However, when suffering from Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and stubborn dryness, our experiences are significantly different, impacting the quality of our daily lives.

Our skin, the body’s largest living organ, holds many mysteries. How well do we truly understand it? What factors contribute to its health, and how can we navigate the world of products available to find the most trustworthy ones? Let’s embark on a journey to uncover the secrets of our skin, explore the influences that shape its well-being, and discover the essentials for maintaining its quality, all to help us get back to feeling great in our skin.

Getting to Know the Skin: Decoding the Triggers

Let’s start with the basics—our skin is a complex system influenced by both genes and the environment. Have you ever heard of biomarkers? These little influencers guide how our skin behaves, and it turns out they’re the culprits behind our skin struggles.

Biomarkers serve as intricate messengers linking the molecular intricacies within our skin layers to the visible manifestations of conditions like Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and dryness. These invisible influencers play a pivotal role in orchestrating our skin’s responses and reactions. Understanding these triggers is the first step to addressing skin issues effectively,” says Isabella Loneragan, Award-winning and internationally-trained skin and dermal therapist with almost two-decades of experience in dermatology.

Understanding the skin’s intricate layers—Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis—requires understanding the intricate link between biomarkers and conditions like Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and dryness. ‘The relationship between each layer is just as important as the symptoms that are presenting’ continues Loneragan.

Now, let’s delve into each skin layer, its unique challenges and the effectiveness of Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion tailored for specific conditions.


  • Epidermis: Eczema disrupts the epidermis, causing inflammation, redness, and itching.
  • Dermis: Scratching may lead to dermal penetration, fostering inflammation and potential infections.
  • Hypodermis: Severe cases might impact the hypodermis, affecting overall well-being.

Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion: Scientifically formulated, it soothes inflammation, restoring the epidermal barrier. High-quality data supports its efficacy in penetrating dermal layers, promoting recovery and preventing further discomfort.

Contact Dermatitis:

  • Epidermis: Irritants dim the epidermal glow, causing redness and irritation.
  • Dermis: Prolonged exposure results in dermal inflammation, heightening skin sensitivity.
  • Hypodermis: Extended exposure may impact the hypodermis, affecting overall skin health.

Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion: Supported by robust data, it acts as a hydration expert, fortifying the skin’s defence. High-quality research showcases its soothing capabilities, penetrating deep to alleviate irritation and create a protective shield.


  • Epidermis: Psoriasis accelerates skin cell turnover, leading to plaque formation.
  • Dermis: Immune responses cause dermal inflammation due to rapid cell production.
  • Hypodermis: Severe cases can impact the hypodermis, causing discomfort and affecting overall skin health.

Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion: High-quality studies validate its effectiveness in calming psoriatic skin. It softens scales and supports balanced skin cycles, penetrating deeply to soothe inflammation and promote healthier skin turnover.

Dry to Severe Dry Skin:

  • Epidermis: Dehydration manifests as dryness, flakiness, and compromised barriers.
  • Dermis: Loss of elasticity affects the dermis, hampering moisture retention and suppleness.
  • Hypodermis: Severe dryness can impact the hypodermis, causing discomfort and reducing skin resilience.

Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion: Striking a harmonious balance, it infuses hydration, restores lustre, and enhances elasticity. Scientific evidence underscores its core action, penetrating each layer comprehensively to prevent discomfort and foster optimal skin health.

Establishing a sustainable and effective long-term skincare routine is crucial for parents and children with skin conditions. ‘Skin care education effectively starts from birth and is ongoing throughout life, especially in countries with a constant high UV rating’ says Loneragan.

Dermavive’s Moisturising Lotion, a pH-balanced, scientifically formulated solution designed to enhance natural healing processes and prevent inflammation, aligns with the latest trends in dermatological research. It provides evidence-backed solutions tailored to each of the mentioned conditions. The formulation of the lotion is in harmony with long-term management goals, making it a trustworthy companion for families’ skincare journey.

Factors Impacting Skin Health

Now we understand more about our skin and how external factors impact its quality lets take a deeper look into additional factors impacting our skins heath.

Loneragan confirms Lifestyle choices, environmental factors and stress all play an instrumental role in the health of skin. The impacts of these elements are substantial and even though the skin is the bodys largest organ, its often overlooked or not given the same attention as other parts of the body, until its too late’ 

Lifestyle: The impact of lifestyle, including dietary choices and stress levels, on the severity of skin conditions is complex and interconnected. Diet plays a crucial role, as certain foods can either trigger or worsen skin conditions such as Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and dry skin. Opting for an anti-inflammatory diet, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, may contribute to mitigating skin inflammation.

Environmental: Our skin faces constant environmental challenges—pollution, changing weather, and varying climates—that significantly influence the severity and management of skin conditions. These external factors, with potential irritants and pollutants, can aggravate conditions like Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and dry skin. The impact is not uniform, as different climates and pollution levels pose distinct challenges. To protect the skin effectively, individuals must adapt their skincare routines and take specific precautions tailored to their unique environmental conditions. This proactive approach ensures a more resilient and healthier skin barrier in the face of ever-changing external influences.

Stress, a well-established trigger for various skin issues, can intensify the severity of conditions. The body’s stress response releases hormones like cortisol, which, when elevated chronically, can worsen inflammation and aggravate skin problems. Therefore, adopting a balanced and nourishing diet while actively managing stress can significantly influence the skin’s overall well-being. Skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis aren’t just physical—they take a toll on your mental well-being, too. Common misconceptions surrounding these conditions can add to the mental burden, emphasising the need for a holistic approach that addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of skin health.

Seeking professional advice for skin conditions is crucial, and dermatologists play a pivotal role by providing specialised guidance and treatment recommendations. They tailor skincare routines, suggesting medical treatments that complement skincare products for a comprehensive approach to managing conditions like Eczema, Contact Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and dry skin. Dermatologists become essential partners for parents and children in this journey, offering insights and expertise.
