Testimonial Tuesday - Diabetic Collection Spotlight

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset   Did you know dry, parched skin is one of the first signs of diabetes? High glucose levels cause the body to lose fluids which can lead to skin that is cracked and extra dry, particularly on the hands and feet. That’s exactly what happened to Yuliya Loginov’s son, Sacha. When he was seven years old, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It was a shock for the entire family who always made every effort to eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. “Sacha’s skin was always itchy, explains Yuliya. “His scalp and legs in particular. And since he sometimes had to take 12-15 glucose tests a day, his fingers had callouses and were always cracked. The use of alcohol swabs before every single reading didn’t help.” Sacha tried several products, but all to no avail. He couldn’t seem to shake the itchy, flaky skin. When he tried Skinfix’s Diabetic Skincare regimen, he couldn’t believe the difference. “All of a sudden, his skin didn’t itch as much. He didn’t have the rash that normally appeared after bathing." Skinfix Diabetic Collection is made without fragrance, parabens or phthalates and works to gently moisturize the skin without stripping. Since Sacha also used a daily pump to provide regular doses of insulin throughout the day, he needed to use a special adhesive to keep it in place. This made his skin extremely dry, red and itchy. Skinfix Moisturizing Body Wash and Daily Relief Lotion gently soothes and softens skin and our Healing Foot & Leg Balm and Hand Relief Cream are clinically proven to moisturize and treat dry, cracked, irritated skin. The entire line is fragrance and urea free and is dermatologist recommended for people living with diabetes.
