Do you have flaky, dry, rough skin that doesn’t go away?
Extra-dry skin is lacking the moisture-rich water, lipids and oils that are needed to keep it healthy. It can feel very tight and rough and sometimes appears scaly and flaky. It often causes persistent itchiness. You can experience it all over your body or in isolated patches, such as on the hands, back of the knees, scalp or face.8,9
Extra-dry skin may be affected by factors like:
- Hormonal changes (menopause)
- Medical conditions like atopic dermatitis, hypothyroidism, diabetes or malnutrition (vitamin A deficiency)
- Medications for high blood pressure (diuretics), high cholesterol and acne (retinoids)10-12
Dry skin can be very sensitive and easily aggravated by cold, dry weather, certain soaps, detergents and fragrances. Even though scratching may help you feel temporary relief, it can start a cycle of itching and scratching that can cause the skin to become more inflamed and even infected.12
How to treat dry skin
Caring for extra-dry skin requires perseverance. It’s best to choose a richer cream, balm or lotion. Also, your cleanser should leave your skin feeling soft and clean, not dry or tight. AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash has a fragrance-free formula that gently cleanses and moisturizes to help soothe itchy, dry skin. Soothing oatmeal and emollients help replenish skin’s moisture barrier for softer, smoother, healthier-looking skin.
After cleansing, apply a moisturizer for dry skin. Try AVEENO® Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion formulated with Triple Oat Complex and shea butter. It absorbs quickly into your skin and has been clinically shown to relieve and soothe extra-dry skin and keep it moisturized for a full 24 hours.
For an intense dry skin treatment that replenishes moisture, try AVEENO® Intense Relief Moisture Repair Cream and Intense Relief Hand Cream with Triple Oat Complex, ceramide and rich emollients. This moisture cream helps to keep skin hydrated and works to repair extra-dry skin.
