I have very dry, itchy skin, especially on my legs (after I shave, it’s the worst!) What are some natural ways I can soothe the itchiness?
Dr. Linda Miles L. Ac., D.O.M. responds:
When skin is noticeably dry and itchy, especially after you shower and shave, this generally means that your skin is not as hydrated as it should be. Showering also removes many of our natural oils that are the skin’s natural protection from the elements. To help relieve this uncomfortable dry, itchy feeling, it is important to sufficiently hydrate the surface of the skin every day.
