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.
Moisturise after bathing or showering.
Skin care products could be kept in the fridge as cooled creams offer additional itch relief.
The need to itch can be reduced if children itch something else, like a doll.
Avoid harsh cleansers. They can strip skin of its natural protective lipids, causing it to become more sensitive.
Avoid using strong soaps and detergents.
Avoid scratching the wound.
Moisturise your skin regularly in order to prevent dryness and to maintain the skin renewal process.
Help to care for your skin by patting, rather than rubbing, it dry.
Avoid over-exposure to sunlight, especially during summer.
Limit the time spent in the bath or shower.
