Skin care in winter – particularly in Vienna – is very important as low temperature and heated rooms increase the risk of dry skin. Many expats from numerous countries suffer from eczema, severe attack of atopic dermatitis or other skin diseases after experiencing winter in Vienna, as the climate is different compared to their homelands. Especially hands, feet and the shins are affected and require attention. Therefore, skin care products used in warmer seasons might not be suitable in winter. Rich ointments containing sufficient amount of oil (“water in oil” emulsions) are required for sensitive skin.
