Skin Care for People with Diabetes

Keep skin clean. Wash with a soap-free, gentle cleanser. Bathe in warm water. Hot baths and showers dry the skin by stripping away your natural oils. After bathing, gently pat dry your skin with a soft towel. Be sure to dry well between your toes. Immediately after drying, apply P.O.L. Cream to retain your body’s own natural moisture and deliver powerful healing anti-oxidants deep into the layers of your skin. Pay attention to problem areas like the hands, elbows, and feet. Never apply creams or lotions between your toes unless instructed by a physician.
