If your skin is noticeably dry, scaly or flaky, a good daily moisturizer like Curél Dry Skin Therapy Itch Defense Lotion can help restore moisture and soothe your dry, itchy skin fast. With an advanced ceramide complex, vitamin E, and oatmeal extract, this ultra-moisturizing lotion helps repair your skin’s protective barrier and provides long-lasting relief. Now most people are familiar with vitamin E and oatmeal extract but what is an advanced ceramide complex? First, let start with what are ceramides? “Ceramides are naturally present in healthy skin and are the vital building blocks to keeping skin’s moisture barrier functioning properly. When ceramides are lost, your skin becomes dry and damaged,” says Lisa Adams a skincare expert on the Curél brand. Having this knowledge about our skin and the role ceramides play in our skincare we were able to make a complex that heals dry skin at the root cause.
After a shower, try a soothing lotion like Curél Hydra Therapy Itch Defense Moisturizer , which is gentle, fragrance-free, and made with calming, hydrating ingredients like jojoba and olive oils. And avoid long, hot showers and baths.
Also, as frustrating as dry, itchy skin can be, try not to scratch. Not only can scratching actually intensify the itch, but it can also lead to injury, infection, and scarring. Instead, try cold compresses, a soothing lukewarm oatmeal bath, and a good moisturizing cream to calm dry, itchy skin
