What is Aveeno Skin Relief Nourishing Lotion With Shea Butter?
This Aveeno Lotion is a treatment for dry, irritated skin that is sensitive and needs a treatment that can restore moisture and reduce any redness or irritation as well as any dryness. This lotion contains shea butter, a fat that is extracted from the nut of the shea tree, a tree that is native to Africa, that works as an emollient to restore moisture back to the skin.
What causes dry skin?
Dry skin is a result of a number of factors that have resulted in the skin barrier becoming damaged. This allows for moisture in the skin to leave, causing dry skin that has become sensitive and irritated. There are a number of factors that can cause dry skin, which can be external or internal factors. External factors that can cause dry skin can include:
- Weather conditions
- Seasonal – winter and summer especially
- UV sunlight
- Frequently washing
- Using strong soaps
- Certain types of medication
The internal factors cannot be controlled in some cases, and include:
- Hormonal changes such as menopause
- Genetics – some people naturally have drier skin than others
Using the right treatment can reduce the effects of any cause and some can be reduced by a change in what is used to clean or eat.
