Do you suffer from Dry Skin?
Dry skin occurs when skin doesn't retain sufficient moisture. This can happen as a result of frequent bathing, use of harsh soaps, aging, or certain medical conditions. Dry skin makes the skin look and feel rough, itchy, flaky or scaly. The location where these dry patches form vary from person to person. It's a common condition that affects people of all ages.
Here are some of our tips to help with Dry skin:
▫️Use lukewarm rather than hot water
▫️Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5-10 minutes
▫️Wash with a gentle, soap free, alcohol free and fragrance-free cleanser/emollient
▫️Pat the skin dry with the towel rather than rubbing it to prevent irritation
▫️Slather on a generous amount of moisturizer immediately after your shower/bath when the skin is damp - Ointments, creams, and lotions work by trapping existing moisture in your skin and ointments are better for those with extremely dry skin
