If you’re the proud ‘mother’ or ‘father’ of a dog with a beautiful set of squishy wrinkles, here are some simple TLC tips to ensure they remain free from skin problems.
Your fur baby’s wrinkles need to be regularly cleaned because they are a super-efficient collector of everything from dirt to food and moisture. If let unattended, what’s hidden beneath those fabulous folds can lead to uncomfortable chafing, skin irritation, and a rather unpleasant pong!
Wrinkles should be washed at least 3 times per week, and ideally every day using a damp facecloth, or un-perfumed face wipes, followed by a soft dry cloth.
Try completing this task with another member of the household – one to hold back the folds and one to clean and wipe dry – makes it a far easier task.
The Wonders of Wrinkle Balm
Wrinkle balms are not just ideal for treating minor irritations, they can also help to prevent them. Here are some common issues that wrinkle balms can help with:
Yeast and bacteria build-up
Redness and inflammation
Itchy and flaky skin
