Hair, Skin, Nails : Health Tip: Get Relief From Dry Skin

Posted February 24, 2016

(HealthDay News) -- Dry, itchy skin can be annoying and even painful. Fortunately, it's mostly preventable.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:
  • Take lukewarm baths and showers, and don't stay too long. Carefully pat skin dry, and apply moisturizer as soon as you get out.
  • Opt for a thick moisturizing cream or ointment instead of lotion.
  • Choose fragrance-free products, which tend to be less drying and irritating.
  • Run a humidifier to keep the air moist.
  • Skip wool and rough fabrics. Instead, opt for 100 percent cotton and other "breathable" fabrics.
  • Wash hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer. Use a thick hand cream after each washing.
