What is Aveeno Creamy Oil?
Aveeno Creamy Oil is a hydrating formula with all of the moisturising properties of an oil, with the convenience of a cream. It hydrates dry skin without being greasy, helping to soothe and moisturise patches of dehydrated skin. It’s perfect for using after a bath or shower, with a dermatologically tested formula that’s kind to sensitive skin.
Why do I have dry skin?
There are many reasons why you may have dry skin. Some people find that their skin becomes dry when they spend time in hot, cold, or dry weather conditions, or find that they experience dry skin in certain seasons. Others find that soaps, detergents, and other products can make their skin feel dehydrated with frequent use. Some people suffer with dry skin conditions, which make the skin feel dry, itchy, and irritated. If you’re suffering with dry skin and need a way to ease irritation, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice.
How does Aveeno Creamy Oil hydrate dry skin?
Aveeno Creamy Oil contains colloidal oatmeal, a finely milled oatmeal which can help to hydrate dry skin. It does this by forming a protective barrier over the surface of the skin, keeping moisture in and irritants out. It can also help to soothe and cleanse your skin, removing dirt and dead skin cells.
