Calming, Soothing Formulas
Many people develop dry skin, particularly during the winter months when there is less moisture present in the air. When skin becomes dry, a number of symptoms can develop, including flaking, itching and rough, scaly patches. Many therapeutic body lotions contain ingredients that address signs of dryness to give you relief. Ingredients that calm inflammation and soften the skin help you feel more comfortable while the hydrating ingredients that the lotions contain work to restore your skin's moisture levels.
Comparing Therapeutic Formulas
Therapeutic body lotions that soothe dry skin symptoms are offered in a variety of forms. If you prefer a lightweight product, you can choose a conventional lotion, which becomes fully absorbed by the skin to leave behind a smooth, non-greasy finish. Creams
contain more oil than lotions, so they supply the skin with more moisture to help it recover from dryness faster.
Ointments are even thicker than creams and do not become completely absorbed by the skin. These products leave behind a barrier that protects irritated skin from evaporation to decrease the chances of dry skin symptoms worsening.
Solutions for Specific Concerns
Some therapeutic body lotions are formulated with ingredients that are beneficial for specific skin care concerns. You can purchase formulas made especially for the hands and feet, for helping cracked skin heal and for alleviating symptoms of conditions like psoriasis
. Along with products that are made for adults, you'll find lotions that are extra gentle to suit the needs of kids and babies. Reading the product descriptions for the formulas in this product selection will help you find the lotion that is best suited to your skin's needs.
