Managing incontinence during the summer can seem like a difficult challenge. With warmer weather and possible holidays and long journeys, it is unfair to let your incontinence hold you back. Paying attention to personal skincare in summer can allow you to feel much freer and more refreshed.
What are the benefits of personal skin care routines?
Consistent personal skincare is essential for maintaining skin integrity for incontinent individuals, particularly elderly people. For many seniors, skin heals slowly and is fragile to pressure and rubbing. The skin may also be sensitive to ongoing exposure to moisture, which can initiate skin degradation causing irritation, itching or infection. Many studies in recent publication have shown the skin benefits of no-rinse cleansers and wash creams in comparison to traditional soap-and-water cleansing products. Choosing products that are specially designed to look after delicate and fragile skin can make the difference between smooth, clean skin and rough, damaged skin. The National Incontinence website supports the fact that incontinence is more about simply buying the correct incontinence products. The organisation guides, “change incontinence products as soon as soiling occurs to avoid excessive skin wetness. Maintain the skin at its natural pH range by using formulated skin products designed for incontinence care.” They recommend, “Use a barrier ointment, or diaper rash cream, to minimise direct contact with urine and faeces”.
