Question: Dry Skin

Good morning My skin is very dry, I bath in baby oil and other bath oils. put on a lot of cream, but my skin stays dry. As winter is approaching this will just worsen. My face is usually quite hydrated, I don't have a problem with that, but my lips are just as dry as the rest of my body, I constantly have to put on some sort of lip ice otherwise it chaps and I'm left fidgeting. Please let me know if there are any products you can recommend to me for this. Thank you! Anni*

Answer

Hi there Anni. You are using a lot of mineral oils to try and combat the dryness you are experiencing. The problem is that these are merely a very temporary fix. You need to try and use something that is going to penetrate and work a bit deeper than what a baby oil or petrolatum based product (like lip ice) will do. I very highly recommend Neostrata’s “Problem Dry Skin Cream” for your body. There are a few options for your lips, Nimue and Skin Medica make fantastic lip products. These products are available at any of our Skin Renewal Branches. You are also welcome to contact any one of our branches to help you with more options or if you would lke us to take a look at your skin.
