While it’s very common for people to focus on their health of their facial skin, it’s important not to ignore dry or irritated skin below the neck. Whether it’s just seasonal from staying out in the sun too large or the harsh winds of winter, or a year-round problem caused from allergies, dry skin on arms, legs, or chest is very a common problem that doesn’t have to go untreated. While you might see countless commercials and ads for skin care products focused around treating acne or dry facial skin, you don’t have to think there isn’t a potent treatment for dry skin elsewhere.
Just like with facial skin care products, you need to look for a body lotion that is made of pharmaceutical aloe instead of just water or low grade aloe. Pharmaceutical grade aloe is formulated to moisturize your skin without the risk of further drying it out like products that are primarily made of water or benzyl peroxide. In addition, you can find body lotions that are designed to help fight dry hands as well. These hand & body lotions should also be aloe based to ensure you are getting the best possible treatment no matter where your dry skin is.
