What is the solution for dry legs?

1) Take an oatmeal bath a couple of times a week to soften the skin.
Put 2 cups of colloidal oatmeal in a tub full of hot water before submerging, soak for 20-30 minutes.

2) Bathe or shower only when necessary, because bathing removes the natural fat from the skin.
Use warm water, since very hot water can accelerate the drying process. Wash the body with a moisturizing soap that does not contain alcohol or perfumes.
Carry out a short wash and rinse thoroughly.
Dry the legs carefully with an absorbent cloth or a soft towel so as not to irritate the skin.

3) Apply a moisturizer for the legs after the bath and several times during the day to restore the moisture of the skin.
Use a dense lotion based on oil.

4) Humidify the air in the house with the help of a humidifier. At night, put the humidifier in the bedroom to prevent air from getting too dry and drying the skin.

5) Avoid the use of wool clothing and other materials that may rub or irritate the skin of the legs.
It is advisable to choose softer materials that allow the skin to breathe, such as cotton.

Warnings for dry skin on the legs

A doctor should be consulted if the legs become red or swollen.
It is recommended to consult a dermatologist if the natural remedies do not bring any results after a week. A professional can rule out the existence of possible diseases.
