Basic Instructions for SmartLotion®

Stuart Millar Updated by Stuart Millar

Always consult your dermatologist for diagnosis, supervision and treatment.

If your dermatologist has prescribed you a treatment for your dermatitis, do not stop treatment and replace it with SmartLotion®.

SmartLotion® works well when combined with prescription solutions, and doesn't have any negative drug interactions.

Always apply SmartLotion® as a thin, disappearing layer. You will find that a small amount can cover a large area.

For open wounds: apply SmartLotion® around the wound, but not in. You can safely apply moisturizer to the wound.

Generally speaking, facial skin is thinner and needs less applications for both recovery and prevention than the rest of your body. Limit facial applications of SmartLotion® to no more than 2x per day for 2 weeks and body applications of SmartLotion® to no more than 4x per day for 4 weeks.

After up to 2 weeks of 2x per day applications on the face and other sensitive skin areas, SmartLotion® is safe to apply indefinitely as a preventative when applied 1x per day, although often less is required.

After up to 4 weeks of 4x per day applications on the body and other "less sensitive" skin areas, SmartLotion® is safe to apply indefinitely as a preventative 2x per day, although often less is required.

For many forms of dermatitis, notably atopic dermatitis, Dr. Harlan says that his patients must moisturize at a minimum of 2x per day - whether a rash is present or not.
