What is Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Lotion?
Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Lotion is a treatment that is intended to be used by those who are looking for relief for dry skin. This lotion contains petrolatum jelly, which has for over 100 years, been sold worldwide as Vaseline. This allows for fast absorption into the skin, which helps improve the hydrating effect of the skin, and also locks in moisture. This lotion will provide up to 3 weeks of protection when using it.
What is dry skin?
Dry Skin is a condition that can affect anyone. Dry skin happens when the skin barrier is damaged and moisture escapes the skin. This then causes the skin to become dry which can increase the risk of irritation and infection. Causes of dry skin include skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as environmental conditions like hot or cold weather. A family history of dry skin also makes it more likely, as does hormonal changes as well as ageing. Not all causes can be controlled.
