The expert panel below includes (from left to right): Anshu Bhimbat, the Pharmacist at Lloyds Pharmacy, Deborah Evans, Managing Director at Pharmacy Complete and Maria Di Chio, Beauty therapist at John Bell & Croyden.

The panel discusses the most burning concerns at this time of year and the best product solutions.


Concern: Dry and flaky skin

Anshu Bhimbat: Before taking action, ensure the dry and flaky scalp isn’t due to any allergies to current hair products.

Once this is ruled out, there are several steps to improve the condition, including introducing a specialist shampoo into a routine.

Suggest a specialist shampoo which will provide effective relief and gentle cleansing while protecting hair.

Suggest: E45 Dermatological Dry Scalp Shampoo, which is formulated to relieve and cleanse dry, itchy and flaky scalps.

Deborah Evans: Causes might include seborrhoeic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, poor nutrition or dehydration (due to central heating in winter).
