Protects and soothes your damaged skin
When skin is broken or irritated, or extremely dry or cracked, aiding skin regeneration becomes paramount. In these situations, providing the correct conditions for healing is vital. Skin needs a healthy amount of hydration to heal, yet excess moisture can slow healing and prevent regeneration.
Skin regeneration occurs best under a semi-permeable, protective barrier which maintains a natural rate of evaporation. Eucerin Aquaphor products are clinically proven to support the regeneration of damaged skin.
Get sufficient sleep to allow the skin to regenerate.
Moisturise your skin regularly in order to prevent dryness and to maintain the skin renewal process.
Avoid extensive sun exposure, as even sun protection products with high Sun Protection Factors (SPFs) do not offer 100% protection.
Avoid the intense midday sun, which is usually from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, although this depends on your location.
If the wound is infected you should consult your doctor who may prescribe an antibiotic cream.
