For the past 6 months I have extremely itchy skin, it initially started on my lower legs and ankles and is now all over, even on my face and scalp. It wakes me up at night, its like my skin is crawling and now if i even touch my face or neck i break out in a rash. The only thing i can connect it to is getting too much sun on holiday last summer which drove my skin crazy when i got home. Im also worried that it could be connected to my liver or too much red wine. I take piriton when its very bad, otherwise it would keep me awake at night. I do have dry skin, I had bad acne as a teenager and took Roacutane for about 6 months which really dried out my skin, I am 35 now so its 20 years since I took that.This just seems to be getting worse and even the heaviest body creams don't help.

  • Pure chimp super face cream is good for a sensitive skin. I have applied it and it helped me much.

  • I like pure chimp products as they are helpful for solving a lot of skin problems.
    They are natural and handmade in UK.

  • This is how I have put a stop to my annoyingly dry & irritated skin
     
    Daily a multivitamin once a day (make sure it contains B vitamins)
    Drink plenty of water. I tend to look at the colour of my wee to see if i'm hydrated or not.
    Use purechimp super body cream
    Increased omega 3 in my diet. You could always use a supplement.
    Purchased a humidifier for my bedroom.
