How do I use Doublebase Diomed Dry Skin Emollient?
Doublebase Diomed Dry Skin Emollient is for application to the skin only. For maximum benefit, apply the emollient to the affected areas of the skin on a regular basis and as often as required. Use a few gentle strokes to smooth the gel across the skin in the same direction as hair growth. If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously. This product can also be used before and after washing, showering, or having a bath to help condition the skin and stop it from drying further. If you are applying another treatment to the same areas of skin as Doublebase Diomed Dry Skin Emollient, try to avoid mixing the two products. This can be achieved by applying the treatments alternately, leaving sufficient time to allow the previous application to soak in.
