Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I have rough or leathery skin. Can you provide assistance or advice for this condition?

I would recommend the following approaches for coping with rough or leathery skin:


1.Moisturize your skin: Regularly apply a moisturizer suitable for your skin type to keep it hydrated and prevent dryness.


2.Use sunscreen: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by applying sunscreen with an appropriate SPF (sun protection factor). Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that shields against both UVA and UVB rays, and remember to reapply it every few hours, especially when spending time outdoors.


3.Stay hydrated: Drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day to maintain skin hydration from within. Hydrated skin tends to be more supple and less prone to dryness and roughness.


Remember, these suggestions provide general guidance.
