Dry, Cracked Skin

Dry skin results from the loss of the natural protective moisture barrier in the skin. The loss of this barrier allows the naturally-occurring moisture in the skin to escape. As skin becomes dry, it may crack or fissure. To effectively hydrate the skin, the natural protective moisture barrier should be restored by a lotion or crème that penetrates deep into the skin, rather than sitting on top of the skin surface. Lanolin, an animal-based oil, most effectively penetrates deep into the skin to hydrate and form a protective barrier. For dry, cracked feet, apply Extreme Dry Skin Therapy and cover with socks overnight. After several nights, skin will feel soft and cracks will begin to heal.
