Which is the most effective emollient?

Ointments are very moisturizing and are the best emollients for very dry or thick skin. They can stain your clothes and are messy, so many people prefer to use them only at night while they sleep. Most ointments don’t have any preservatives, so your skin is less likely to have a bad reaction to it.

Is emollient good for face?

Emollients can be applied as often as you like to keep the skin well moisturised and in good condition. Ideally, this should be done at least 3 or 4 times a day. It’s especially important to regularly apply an emollient to your hands and face, as they’re exposed to the elements more than any other part of your body.

Can you put Theraplex on your face?

Is Theraplex good for eczema?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Eczema! Our dermatologist recommended Theraplex, and we’ve been using it for a few months now. It is more of a vaseline-like product and not so much a lotion. It doesn’t burn or sting like other products.

What happens when you stop using moisturiser?

Moisturising prevents the skin’s natural exfoliation by smoothing the skin cells and stopping them from sloughing off. So by stopping moisturising, this actually stimulates cell turnover and encourages natural desquamation (that’s the shedding of the outer layers of the skin).

How long does emollient take to work?

Emollients should be applied to the skin in a downward direction of hair growth and left in a thin layer to soak in – this may take 10 minutes.
