Direction of Use - For Dry Skin and Atopic Dermatitis
The idea of using moisturisers make the skin “lazy” and thus prompts it to produce even less oil was convincingly refuted long ago
Nevertheless, the amount of lotion used is always not sufficient which does not improve the skin condition gradually.
Based on the table, it shows the optimal amount of lotion recommended by doctors and hospitals. The amount of cream that fits on the fingertip of the index finger of an adult is used as a simple measure. This is enough to treat an area of skin approximately twice the size of an adult’s palm.
It is also important to apply the lotion not just once a day, but at least twice, as the skin can only absorb a limited amount of oil at a time.
Itching can be a very reliable gauge on whether your skin is moisturized properly or not. It occurs particularly when inadequate amount of lotion is applied less frequently.
