Diabetes and Dry Skin

Diabetes and Dry Skin, diabetes itching, diabetic skin conditions, dry skin treatment for diabetics, Do you live with diabetes and dry skin? I was watching television and saw a commercial talking about a hydrating lotion specifically for diabetics. It’s just full of chemicals and that can’t be good for your already compromised system.

The, it dawned on me that I handcraft the awesome Nakedly Natural Deep Hydration Body Butter that is perfect for addressing the dry skin issues associated with diabetes.

I have close family and dear friends who live with diabetes. I can’t help with the diabetes, but, through the power of aromatherapy, I can certainly help with your dry skin issues. Healthy skin is beautiful skin and it’s not as difficult as you think. #wannalookgoodnaked

The Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those with diabetes live a full life. They also want to ensure that the information you get about diabetes is correct.

According to them, it’s very important to take good care of your skin:

People with diabetes are prone to dry skin, particularly when blood glucose levels run high. This causes the body to lose fluids and skin to become dry.  Dry skin can crack and itch, which can lead to infections.  You may also get dry skin with diabetes if you have neuropathy. The nerves in the legs and feet may not get the message to sweat, which is necessary to keep skin soft and moist.  Keeping your skin moisturized when you have diabetes is one of the easiest ways to prevent skin problems.

Dry Skin Treatment for Diabetics

When I began making body butters, my underlying reason was to avoid the toxic chemicals that damage your body. I didn’t understand until later about diabetes and dry skin and how dangerous these issues are if you don’t pay attention to them.

The Nakedly Natural Deep Hydration Body Butter that I handcraft has taken on a whole new meaning! It not only cuts down on toxic chemicals but it helps you to keep your skin moisturized without it being another full time job.

If you’re living with diabetes and dry skin, you already have your hands full monitoring your blood glucose levels so let’s not add anything else to your schedule. If you have diabetic skin conditions, this deep hydration body butter is excellent for your daily care.

What the Nakedly Natural Deep Hydration Body Butter does is hydrate your dry, itchy skin. There are no parabens, no sodium laurel sulfates – nothing but the organic butters and oils.

Because they come from the goodness of nature, these ingredients are proven to hydrate your skin far more effectively than the commercial creams. I researched each ingredient carefully and chose each one for its’ ability to provide deep hydration to parched, itchy skin. You’ll love the scent of the one drop of Peppermint (Mentha x peperita) essential oil as it provides a refreshing, clean scent.

Your body wash or soap may also be stripping your skin of its’ natural oils. Try using all-natural shower gels, body washes or soaps. My handcrafted Unscented Soap is chemical-free and doesn’t strip your skin.

If the heels on your feet or your hands are dry and cracked, you could be inviting bacteria to take root. The Nakedly Natural Deep Hydration Body Butter is perfect for daily use, but if you need something to help with deep cracks, then use PsoMaxx Psoriasis and Eczema Salve.

PsoMaxx does the same thing for your diabetic skin issues as it does for psoriasis and eczema – it provides a moisture barrier as well as nourish your super dry and cracked skin.

Diabetes and Exercise

One more thing – I’m a big believer in taking five minutes every single day to move my body. Most of the time, five minutes turns into fifteen minutes and I’m amazed at how much better I feel. Why not try it – even if you simply walk around the outside of your house – or better yet, around the block?

You’re helping your body in so many ways. Even if you find it hard to move, you can sit in a chair and stretch – stretching is good for your whole body – but check with your medical professional before you begin.

Scented Balance is my way of giving back for all the goodness in my life. I want to help you enjoy your life to the fullest and experience your best version of YOU.

Please let me know what questions you have; I would love to talk with you about your needs and concerns. You can email me directly at balance (a) scentedbalance (dot) com or fill out the contact form and let’s talk today.

As always, I am very grateful you chose to stop by.
