What is the best moisturizer for dry skin? And with winter approaching, which dry skin treatment solves the problems of constant hand washing and Mother Nature?
Online PR News – 26-November-2013 – Beverly Hills, California – It’s a problem for any medical profession or nurse: dry, rough and uncomfortable hands due to continual hand washing, antibacterial soaps and the harsh realities of daily living, robbing moisture from skin. Latex gloves, while offering protection from body fluids and disease, can also contribute to skin problems - including contact dermatitis and serious allergic reactions - especially with prolonged use, without proper protection from latex. And now, with winter approaching, proper dry skin treatment is even more important.
Though less than one percent of the general population is allergic to latex, the percentage among healthcare workers is much higher - between 17 and 25 percent, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Experts believe that constant latex exposure from gloves and other sources puts healthcare professionals such as nurses, dentists and lab personnel at increased risk of latex sensitivity. A major factor is that petroleum based lotions weaken the ability to protect those wearing latex gloves and increase the possibility for allergic reactions.
"Latex gloves are hard on the hands even for those not overly sensitive to the material," says Jasmin Elliott, a licensed RN, who has worked in hospital and outpatient clinic environments in Southern California. "But wearing them is inevitable as a medical professional. Nearly constant hand washing takes its toll on your hands too, when washing before and after each patient interaction with several patients each hour."
So what is the best moisturizer for dry skin? And with winter approaching, which dry skin treatment solves the problems of constant hand washing and Mother Nature?
A new type of "shielding" lotion is helping to provide a solution, acting as a barrier to unwanted skin irritants and conserving the body’s own moisture. Unlike traditional moisturizers that add artificial moisture to the skin’s surface where it can wash away or rub off, shielding lotions instead bond with the outer layer of skin. This keeps moisture-robbing irritants out while helping to retain the skin’s natural moisture. The result: better hydrated skin. One application typically lasts for four hours or more and comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells.
Shielding lotions such as Gloves In A Bottle are available in the US and Canada at over 9,500 pharmacies and over 3,000 specialty shops. For more info call 800-600-1881, or visit www.glovesinabottle.com/reorder
