Helpful creams for dry skin

There are numerous ointments on the market to deal with several skin problems. The choice of lotion is dependent upon the active component of the cream and the exact character and kind of the skin issue. One of the creams which is commonly used for a range of disorders is creams with urea included. This is mainly used to manage skin disorders which might be dry and/or rough for example eczema, psoriasis, corns or callus and some nail disorders like thickened nails. Urea based ointments could also be used to help eliminate the dead cells in some wounds as a way to aid wound healing. The urea in these kinds of lotions is referred to as a keratolytic. Because of this it works by helping the moisture in the skin by softening and dissolving the horny compounds (the keratin) that holds the outer layer of skin cells together. By conditioning and dissolving these, it can help the dead skin cells disappear. It also helps your skin maintain more moisture in, consequently conditioning it.

There are many commercially made brand names, like the widely used Walker’s Urea 25 cream that can be used for this. It is crucial that all these urea ointments are used as advised by the manufacturer. All recommendations on the product insert or container should be adhered to and if you are uncertain, then consult your health professional. Quite a few brands need to be shaken well before they are used. The Walkers 25 urea cream should be put on the impacted areas of your skin generally 1 to 3 times a day in the beginning or as instructed by your health professional. The cream ought to be rubbed in well until it is absorbed. Right after applying the cream, wash your hands (unless you will be treating the hands!). It should only be put on the skin only and staying away from sensitive areas just like your eyes, lips or within your mouth. Should you be unclear about the use of urea cream, then be sure to speak with your pharmacist.
