There are several topical skin creams out in the market. These skin creams are for topical application which means that they are applied to a localized area of the outer body or to the skin surface of a body part.
Topical creams usually contain medicaments or other specific ingredients for a prophylactic, therapeutic, or cosmetic purpose. There are some that need prescription and there are those that you can get over the counter.
Majority of the skin creams found in the market are used to address dry skin, skin irritations, and minor skin conditions. You want to look for a product line which features as many natural ingredients as possible that will be effective in treating dry skin. Some products may even be unconventional.
One of the best ingredients for getting rid of dry skin is olive oil. When processed correctly, it is very similar to human sebum. It is also high in antioxidants, is anti-bacterial, and antifungal.
Another good ingredient is jojoba. It can be used for people with combination skin, because while it is moisturizing, it does not increase sebum production. Jojoba is drawn from the seed of the jojoba plant, and was used by the Native Americans for healing purposes.
Grape-seed oil is also a preferred ingredient in any creams for getting rid of dry skin because it forms an invisible, non-waxy layer on the skin in order to lock moisture in. It is also sought after due to its regenerative and restructuring abilities.
An unconventional skin cream treatment for dry skin that is gaining popularity through word-of-mouth is Dr. Naylor’s Udder Balm. Although primarily a veterinary product used to treat dry skin on a cow’s udder, many folks using it on their cows noticed a surprising improvement on their own skin as well.
According to regular users, it not only improved their skin’s condition significantly but is also effective in treating skin rashes, sores, minor cuts and scrapes, and alleviating minor burns, in some reports as good as other synthetic topical skin creams.
