As the body ages, the skin, unfortunately, become thinner, drier and more brittle. This results in skin that is easily damaged when bumped against something. In particular, the lower legs are more prone to bumps and scrapes and that is why these ivory skin protectors have been designed for lower leg coverage. Note that they are soft and comfortable to wear and don’t compress the leg at all. They have been manufactured from a blend of cotton, rayon, nylon and Spandex and are also free of Latex.
In-built into these skin protectors for legs are anti-microbial properties. This keeps them fresh and smelling good by preventing a build up of harmful bacteria. They also reduce the chances of fungal infections and mould growth. This can sometimes occur with certain skin conditions or leg wounds. Skin protectors fight off bacteria and other unwanted growths and help existing wounds to heal faster.
Along with protecting against skin trauma by offering a protective barrier, lower leg skin protectors also cover up things like scars and hide wound sites.
Another important point to note is that looking after your ivory leg skin protectors is very easy. They are machine washable and you can also put them in the dryer on a low heat setting. Otherwise, simply hang them on the clothesline to dry naturally.
How To Apply Leg Skin Protectors
Putting on skin protectors is really as easy as wearing long socks. For best results and to maintain the integrity of the skin protectors, first roll them from the top down to the toe opening. Insert your foot and then roll the protector up your leg to the knee joint. Do the same with the other leg.
The Benefits Of Wearing White Skin Protectors
White skin protectors simply look like socks, so not very noticeable as a medical aid. As the lower legs in seniors can be prone to bumps and sustaining injuries to fragile skin, the lower leg protectors offer a barrier of protection to preserve the skin. They also cover things like scars and wounds and assist in the more rapid healing of wounds.
