Is your skin prone to itchiness or inflammation?

If you're constantly scratching throughout the day, you'll know how painful and annoying it can be. And the more you scratch it, the worse it gets! 

You might even have to make tweaks in your daily life to protect your skin. For instance, you're probably always wearing long sleeves or avoiding the hot sun, because the scorching heat can further irritate your skin. Or, you may have to avoid certain foods because they cause you to itch even more. 

That's why it's so important to determine the cause of your itchiness and inflammation, and make sure to seek out proper treatment

Additionally, it's also important to use the right skincare products. Depending on your skin type and whether or not you have any skin conditions, you've got to look for products that work for you. Not only will this help to avoid further irritating your skin, it can also help to protect and soothe it. 

If you're looking for a cleanser to help break your itch-scratch cycle, check out Pinetarsol โ€“ a gentle soap-free cleanser that helps relieve itchiness

Pinetarsol comes either in gel form or as a cleansing solution, both of which help to relieve your skin irritation.

Both the gel and bath oil can reduce inflammation, so your skin won't be as red and swollen. According to Pinetarsol, the Pinetarsol solution (MAL19912380XRZ) is effective in soothing and relieving numerous skin conditions such as chickenpox, insect bites, and allergic reactions.

Ultimately, by helping to relieve your symptoms in addition to soothing your skin, you're likely to scratch less, allowing your skin to heal over time.

In fact, Pinetarsol highlights that their cleansers and gel use the right formulation to not just soothe your skin, but protect it as well

The soap-free cleanser and gel are formulated with natural pine tar, which is an ingredient known to provide relief to itchiness. Pinetarsol helps your skin retains its natural oils as well as moisture, which can keep your skin hydrated.

If you didn't know, both moisture and natural oils are essential to your skin, as they prevent it from getting flaky, cracked, or rough.

On a different note, Pinetarsol claims that it's safe for everyday use as the formulation is steroid-free and pH-balanced. 

Additionally, Pinetarsol has various products catered to specific needs as well, most of which can be used as soap alternatives
