Top 5 things to know about BODY dryness

  1. Many forms of body dry skin are allergy or irritation.  Chronic diseases like Psoriasis or Atopic Dermatitis will require on-going prescription medications
  2. Avoid liquid soaps – most containalcohol and are drying.  Bar soaps that are pH adjusted and/or super fatted, like our Lipikar Surgrass Cleansing Bar & Lipikar Syndet Cleansing Cream, are the best options.
  3. Short showers are the best as they minimize the stripping of the skin
  4. Seal skin after bathing with lipid-rich creams or anti-inflammatory creams like Avene Trixera Emollient Cream.
  5. Avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets altogether!  Even “FREE” branded items are full of formaldehyde
