For use as a leave-on application, apply it to the affected areas, gently smooth into the skin, and if necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously.

Usage and Instructions
For best results, you should use this product on a regular basis and whenever you shower.
You can use the emollient to wash with instead of ordinary soap or shower gel. It will not foam or lather like ordinary cosmetic products. After washing or showering, pat the skin dry with a soft towel (avoid rubbing as this can make dry skin conditions worse).
Or you can apply it to affected areas after your shower and gently smooth into the skin. If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously. Reapply as often as required.
If you are applying another treatment to the same areas of skin, try to avoid mixing the two products by applying the treatments alternately, leaving sufficient time to allow the previous application to soak in.
How do you use Dermol shower emollient?
