Medical Mondays - The Skincare Dilemma

We get it.  We know that there is a dilemma between wanting beneficial results of using skin care products, while ensuring that the products won’t be too harsh on your skin.

Wearing sunscreen helps to prevent summer sun spots and freckles, but it is not the only type of precaution we should be taking with our skin.  Implementing preventative measures for your skin all year long will help to maintain the integrity of your skin and reduce the risk factors of skin breakdown.

A simple therapy foot moisturizer, for example, hydrates rough, dry cracked heels and soothes calluses.   Boosting foot hygiene with moisturizers and cleansers can help skin feel supple and boost. If you are pressed for time, you can even soften hard skin quickly by soaking your feet in warm water. 

Many people who have incontinence will experience incontinence-associated-dermatitis (IAD).  Exposure to the bacteria in urine or stool can result in painful symptoms.  A proper skin cream will help to relieve pain, burning, itching, redness and inflammation. 


A Product like Remedy Phytoplex Nourishing Cream helps to restore skin’s natural moisture balance as it is absorbs readily into the skin without a greasy residue.  It is formulated without mineral oil or other petrochemicals but rather enhanced with Phytoplex, providing additional botanicals and essential fatty acids.  Ideal on the hands, face and body.
