Foam of mousse?

Anything that foams will dry out your skin. This applies to both foam and foam. But if you dry the skin, you remove its own protective film. Then you end up in a vicious cycle: you dry out your skin, the skin produces more sebum, which makes it clogged and ugly. This is why you continue to cleanse the skin with foam, your skin is attacked and begins to produce even more sebum. The circle is round. Even if you have oily skin, my advice is not to dry out your skin and therefore not to use foam for cleaning.

What is skin aging?

Skin aging is a normal phenomenon and is unavoidable in all people. Skin aging actually starts from the twentieth year, but only really becomes visible between the 35th and 40th year. The speed and extent to which the skin ages is partly determined by hereditary and partly by external factors. The lifestyle of the person also plays an important role in skin aging. In general, women are more and more concerned about the signs of skin aging than men.

Allergy contact

With contact eczema, contact with certain substances leads to a rash (eczema). There are two types of contact dermatitis:

Allergic contact dermatitis

Irritant contact eczema

Sometimes these two types of contact dermatitis can occur at the same time.

Allergic contact dermatitis

In allergic contact eczema, the cause of eczema is an “allergic reaction” to a certain substance. You will only receive it if you have become allergic to a certain substance after previous skin contact. This substance is known as an “allergen”. Once you are allergic, a little allergen is enough to cause skin pain. A contact allergy often lasts for life.

Irritant contact eczema

Irritant contact eczema develops eczema from irritation, for example from contact with water, soap, detergent and the like, from rubbing or from being cold. Therefore, anyone can develop irritating contact dermatitis. However, irritation occurs earlier in one than the other. With a lot of contact with water, eczema develops faster and more heavily. It is therefore not an allergic reaction. Find out more about contact allergies or read the allergy brochures.

Hand eczema

The term eczema is used for skin lesions that are associated with itching, redness, small bumps (papules), blisters, peeling, and sometimes fluid discharge. These phenomena are the result of an inflammatory reaction of the skin. The inflammation of eczema is not caused by bacteria or fungus, so it is not contagious. Some forms of eczema can be very difficult to treat and last a long time. Various factors play a role in most forms of hand eczema. These factors can act on the skin both externally and internally.

Nummular eczema

Eczema is a collective term for skin conditions that are characterized by red, scaly patches. Eczema is based on a superficial inflammatory reaction of the skin, for which several causes are possible. Nummelekzema is characterized by round, itchy patches on the skin that usually appear symmetrically on the arms and legs. It occurs mainly in adults and is not contagious.

Seborrheic eczema

Seborrheic eczema is a skin condition – with redness and flaking – that occurs primarily on the face and hairy head. Seborrheic dermatitis occurs in about 5% of the population, slightly more common in men than women. The condition usually develops at the beginning of puberty and is not contagious. It rarely occurs in children, except in small children (“mountain”). This condition is not related to internal diseases. The course of seborrheic eczema is variable, with periods of rest alternating with times when the skin disease is more active. Eczema can be treated well, but may return after treatment is stopped.

Constitutional eczema

Atopic eczema, also called atopic eczema, is a form of eczema that occurs mainly in childhood. Eczema usually starts before the age of two and is mainly characterized by severe itching. Constitutional eczema is often associated with a predisposition to develop allergies. This predisposition is hereditary and is called atopy. If eczema develops in infancy, there is a good chance it will go away on its own later in life. However, eczema can persist chronically or come back later.


Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition of the face that mainly affects middle-aged women. The four main signs are redness, small enlarged blood vessels (rosacea), bumps (papules), and pimples (pustules). Eye abnormalities are common in rosacea and can range from mild to severe. The disease can be treated well (better said: it can be suppressed), but it is rarely finally curable.
