Sun or drug side effects – both dry out skin
But my unscientific, unproven except by old wives remedy for dealing with this might help.
The usual happens after after a long winter of drugs, drugs and more drugs (wish doctors weren’t s
ready to prescribe) added to a few days of hot weather, have made me itch all over
So my favourite cure is to run a very warm bath (as hot as I can bear it – I know, I know I shouldn’t do it i- but I did). Just once desperate measures were needed.
Then it was a deep cleanse for my face, tone, and then slap on a lovely thcik layer of Renewal Shea Skin Cream, made by Ruby Red on my face, and sinkinto the bath.
Whilst the steam from the water helped the Skin Cream soak in, I could think that this was doing me a lot of good. I was using their No. 3 cream, made with extracts of Lemon and Honey, which are both good for the skin.
