NEVER USE SOAP


Soap is detergent. Detergents strip away grease! That is why we use detergent on our dishes. Your skin needs its 'grease'. If you scrub away your natural oil with soap, there is nothing to protect the water in your skin and it dries out, gets dry, scaly, and itchy. As we mature, our skin loses its capacity to moisturize and keep our skin supple, so steps should be taken to conserve the protective layer of our skin for maintenance.
Saturate affected area with warm(NOT HOT) water for 10 minutes. A soak in the tub is more effective than a shower, but any water exposure is necessary for 10 minutes. Barely pat dry, leave skin damp. Within 2 minutes of stepping out of shower, apply Cerave lotion or cream liberally from face to toes, THEN apply your vaseline/crisco.
Not everything that is greasy is effective to MOISTURIZE the skin. The skin needs its moisturization (water plus Cerave) then the protectant(vaseline/crisco) to seal it all in.
You will notice a difference in 1-2 weeks!!!!!
