Epaderm Ointment 500g is an effective treatment for the dry skin conditions like - eczema, psoriasis. The 3 in 1 ointment developed by the dermatologist can be used as an emollient, bath additive, as well as a skin cleanser. Similar to E45 cream.
Dry skin occurs when there is an extreme loss of moisture from skin surface due to evaporation or various other factors. In the course of time, this leads to a condition where the skin loses its natural flexibility and develops itchy and dry scales.
Before applying Epaderm you should always wash. A good skin care routine would have you wash the targeted areas twice. Once in the morning, and once in the evening (before bed). Apply after you’ve rinsed, before your skin completely dries.
Spread the ointment around. Using the first two fingers of each hand, spread upwards and outwards. Use a swirling motion to blend the moisturiser into your skin.
Dry skin is often rough and scaly, feels uncomfortable and tends to be itchy. Many people have naturally dry skin, and this can be made worse by cold weather, central heating and air conditioning.
Regular use of an emollient will relieve the symptoms of dry skin and help provide a protective barrier. Developed by dermatologists, Epaderm Cream and Epaderm Ointment can help with the management of dry skin and dry skin conditions.
