Dry skin in Kenya is a problem that not only occurs during the cold months, but also during sunny ones as well. The increased humidity indoors in during the cold season and outdoors in the hot ones add to the problem that affects many sufferers around the world.
Symptoms of dry skin include redness and a tight feeling when you attempt to bend your fingers or even in the slightest movement of your hand. In the case of extreme dry skin in Kenya, cracking and bleeding may occur. This is the most unpleasant part of dry skin as it can be very embarrassing and, as expected, very painful. While it often seems that there is no way to end this discomfort, there are several tips to help individuals who suffer from dry skin.
Dry Skin Tip # 1
Use a soap that has moisturizing lotion like Oilatum soap. This will be gentler on your skin and will add moisture back where it has been otherwise removed. If possible, avoid harsh soaps like medicated antibacterial soaps that dry out the skin or strip it of it’s natural moisture in pretense of beauty.
Dry Skin Tip # 2
While it is important to maintain proper hygiene, overly washing your hands or showering multiple times each day may promote dry skin in Kenya. After washing, it is equally important to dry your skin thoroughly to prevent it from chapping. Use warm water as water that is too cold also accelerates this problem.
Dry Skin Tip # 3
One of the most effective severe dry skin treatment products in Kenya is EPIMAX Plus Dry Skin Cream. This thick white cream provides instant relief for dry skin and can be applied to not only the hands, but the entire body as well. It also contains Urea, an important ingredient when it comes to managing cracking skin.
Dry Skin Tip # 4
If your skin is too scaly, use a quality exfoliation product to remove dry and/or dead skin cells. This can also be done at most salons if you can’t do it yourself. By removing the old cells, you will expose the healthy cells and may be better able to fight against nature’s harmful effects. The danger with this is that, you must apply the most effective, least harsh product as the skin beneath is very tender. Harsh products might cause more harm than good. One of those is EPIMAX Plain or Oilatum cream.
Dry Skin Tip # 5
If the problem of dry skin in Kenya worsens or persists, consult a dermatologist. In some instances, over-the-counter products may not be able to treat severe cases of dry skin. A dermatologist has the ability to recommend stronger treatment products, which may be needed in some instances.
