Tips for Healthy,
Dry skin is caused by a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin. Moisturizing cleansers, like Albolene, form a layer on top of the skin that helps keep water in. Petrolatum and mineral oil are effective moisturizing ingredients found in Albolene’s 2-in-1 formula. Here are some tips to help keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated:
Occlusive moisturizers such as Albolene contain petrolatum and paraffin that seal the skin’s moisture in to keep skin supple and soft. Typical cleansers strip the skin of its moisture, causing dryness and flakiness, but Albolene provides both cleansing and moisturizing in one time-saving step.
Long, hot showers may feel great, but they can strip skin of its moisture and wash away protective oils. Limiting showers to no more than ten minutes and keeping the water a bit cooler can help limit moisture loss. Lock in moisture by applying a cream like Albolene within three minutes of exiting the bathtub or shower.
Central heating systems (as well as space heaters) blast hot, dry air throughout your home and office. Humidifiers get more moisture in the air, which helps prevent your skin from drying out. Place several small humidifiers throughout your home; they help disperse the moisture more evenly.
