what does it mean…and what’s the best natural treatment?.
Dry Skin is a type of eczema, that’s most common in older people. Typically, the skin becomes itchy, red or scaly – particularly in exposed areas like the hands, arms, legs and face.
Without treatment, severe dry skin can lead to fish-like scaling or chronic eczema. Extreme cases can result in bleeding fissures or bacterial infections.
…so what causes dry skin?
As the skin ages, it produces less natural oil and retains less moisture – so it’s less equipped to cope with external pressures, like sun, humidity and certain kinds of soap.
…can dry skin be cured?
If you’re prone to dry skin, it can keep coming back – especially in autumn and winter, thanks to the drying effects of indoor heat. But you can keep it at bay with some simple lifestyle changes, and by choosing a dry skin treatment that compliments your type of skin.
However, there are risks along the way…
Because dry skin is a type of inflammatory condition, GPs and Dermatologists will usually prescribe a steroid cream or lotion. In the short term, steroids can reduce inflammation, but they often have side effects. With sustained use, they can thin out the skin and reduce its defences against infection.
…Syrinx Za can help

Our customers tell us these are the most effective treatments for dry skin. But it’s different for everyone. For example:
- The skin creams work well on oily skin or delicate parts of the body – including the face, ears, neck, chest and groin.
- The balms offer protection from the elements, and work well on dry or cracked skin – especially on the hands, feet, ankles, legs and arms.
So you may want to experiment. All our products are clinically proven to be non-irritant, so you can mix and match without risk. It won’t be long before you find the right balance for your type of skin.
I am writing to confirm that I have been using the new soap product which is being marketed by Mr Bevan. I have found it excellent and in particular my son who has chronic eczema has been using it and has had very good results. As a general practitioner I feel sure that the wider use of products such as this could well form part of the management of dry skin conditions. I have no hesitation recommending it to others.
