mydryskin support programme
mydryskin provides 12 weeks of dedicated information, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks. Every week there is a PDF for you to download or print containing practical information about how to manage dry skin, written by talkhealth and medical experts.
Many adults will experience dry skin at some point in their life. Dry skin can occur for various reasons and can be extremely uncomfortable and even unbearable at times.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Symptoms & treatments
- What to ask your GP or consultant
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Common triggers & irritants
- Itch-scratch cycle
- Emotional impact and much more!
I thought it was handy to know what triggers dry skin more than anything. To help combat your own issues within your skin. My main issue is my diet which I know is my own control but things like makeup and daily activities don't help so this guide helps me motivate myself into doing more to achieve the results I want without expecting a doctor to help.

The programme has been a great help with a source of information from people who understand my issues and can give helpful advice from experience.
Michael (Jan 20)
Very knowledgeable gave great advice and guidance all the way through.
Kirsty (Jan 20)
Helpful tips and new things to try, also finding out more about skin conditions and causes I found quite interesting. And I'm amazed to how many people suffer from dry skin conditions. It good to know what to say to a doctor because I struggle explaining myself so my doctor has a better understanding of my condition.

A support programme that is so helpful and makes you feel so informed and not necessarily needing to see a GP as often as needed.
Deborah (Jan 20)
It's a great programme, a lot useful information on how to take care of dry skin and how to prevent it. I found a lot of answers for the questions I would ask my doctor. Also it's nice to know that you are not the only one suffering with this problem and there are a lot of organisations where you can seek advice and support. Thank you mydryskin support programme for all of this.

I think it was very informative with lots of interesting facts.

I found the programme very relevant to me as I am going through the menopause and had been suffering with very dry skin. It’s made me more aware of doing something about it instead of just leaving it.
Jayne (Dec 19)
It was good to have the information at hand to help manage dry skin and its better to find the stuff that works and how to keep the skin from drying out.

I found the mydryskin programme very usefull. I found out triggers I was unaware of and that there are organisations out there to help too. It helps mentally as well as physically knowing you're not alone and knowing that there are people to help is amazing. Fully recommend.
Marie (Dec 19)
When I started this programme I thought this will never work, over the weeks and the sessions I have now became aware of the triggers that can set my dry skin off. How best to apply lotion to make it work how it’s supposed to and notice a big difference on the condition of my dry itchy skin.
Allison (Dec 19)
Absolutely brilliant! Is full of really useful information, tips, advice and more! Has saved me trips to the doctors and helped me learn about my skin condition and how to deal with it more. Better then just using everything and anything on my skin.
Danika (Dec 19)
