This skin condition can generally be treated with low fat skin care products with liposomes that are rich in linoleic acids. As liposomes increase the permeability of the skin it should be taken care that the cosmetic products are free of preservatives and perfumes in order to avoid sensitizations. Ethoxilates (emulsifiers) are widely used in cosmetics and can cause bad skin or acne („Mallorca Acne") after sun exposure. It is therefore also recommended to stay away from emulsifiers.
