We all know what it's like to have Stressed Out Skin.
The annoyance of excess dryness, that causes itchy-ness, which makes you scratch, which then causes cracking, redness, inflammation and irritation, leaving YOU and your SKIN stressed out and annoyed! EEeeek!
Maybe you or your loved ones get dermatitis or eczema. Perhaps your a Gardener, Chef, Mechanic, Painter, Nurse or Hairdresser and your hands get a beating. I hear ya honey!
The last thing that you want to do is smother your skin in Petroleum products, which is what the base of a lot of those Paw Paw ointments out there is. As I've always said "petroleum is for engines, NOT human bodies"! Neither do you want to just go for a Steroid cream, yes they work but are a quick, temporary fix that cannot be used repeatedly without big negatives like thinning of the skin which then just compounds the problem! You want to fix the issue not just "put a band aid over it" or even worse still, make the problem worse in the long term.
Well the way I see it, the best way to deal with your Stressed Out Skin is to address the primary cause of the itchy-ness and that is the DRYNESS issue. Dry skin is seriously lacking natural oils that nourish, act as an emollient, lubricant and keep the skin soft, supple and healthy. This layer or "Acid Mantle" of natural oils that our skin secretes also has a major role in acting as a barrier to bacteria and organisms that may otherwise penetrate into our skin. So as you see, it's pretty damn important.
