Whether you are suffering from minor dry skin or skin that is so cracked it is painful to undergo any movement that causes your skin to tighten, there are ways to heal your cracked skin.
In addition to hurting, cracked skin can make certain activities impossible to do and can even increase your chances of being exposed to dirt or germs in certain circumstances. During the winter or summer when the weather is harshest, the longer cracked skin goes untreated, the longer it will eventually take to heal.
No matter the severity of your cracked skin, you can help it heal by using high quality skin moisturizers that are designed to soothe inflammation. If you need a good everyday lotion, use an aloe-based hand & body lotion. If your face is dry, try using a night moisturizer that can help your skin heal while you sleep.
