October 2010 newsletter kit: Skinnies clothing for sensitive skin

Love your skin: A range of specialist clothing for children and adults is available for those who have diabetes and problem skin. Skinnies were designed to alleviate the extreme discomfort of eczema. The garments are seam free to avoid movement restriction, bulk and friction and come in different colours to avoid the ‘medical bandage look’ and encourage use. If you don’t have eczema but do have diabetes, then their range of therapeutic socks – also seam-free – use a yarn designed to absorb some moisture while helping retention of emollients and creams to effectively hydrate the skin. These properties mean that there is minimal contact with your skin while keeping the foot safe and clean. Skinnies socks are not ‘too tight’ so they don’t restrict blood flow, but still stay in place. Their seamless technology improves comfort and removes risk of blisters and calluses, at £19.99 per pair of socks. www.skinniesuk.com
