Skin problem

There exists a great variety of different skin problems, associated with dry skin. The conditions listed below are common; they are not heavily affecting health, but may become reasons for the rise of complexes, self-rating and quality of life.

In this section:


Acne (zits) is a common inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles of the skin that is characterized by the eruption of blackheads, whiteheads, congested pores, pustules, nodules and cysts (that may lead to scarring). The blemishes occur in the places where sebaceous glands are highly concentrated: typically on the face, neck, back, chest, and arms.

There are several types of acne:
  • acne vulgaris - is the most common type of acne, related to genetic predisposition, hormone shifts at puberty, causing sebaceous glands overproduce sebum. The condition is often aggravated by usage of oil-based cosmetics and hair products;
  • tropical acne – is the type of acne affecting light-skinned people when they are exposed to unaccustomed heat and humidity;
  • chloracne – is the type of acne, that results from exposure to chlorinated hydrocarbons.


Rosacea is a chronic dermatitis of the face, affecting its middle third, especially forehead, the chin and the lower half of the nose. Rosacea is characterized by persistent redness, the tiny blood vessels in the affected areas dilate, appearing like tiny red lines. Pimples resembling acne may occur in the affected parts of the skin, that’s why rosacea is sometimes mistaken for acne and is also called acne rosacea.


Milium (also called whitehead) is a small cystlike spot that is filled with keratin; its color is white or yellowish. Milia occur just below the surface of the skin around the eyes, on the cheeks and eyelids; it is caused by retention of the secretion of a sebaceous gland that is not fully developed. Milia may also develop in some blistering skin disorders and following dermabrasion due to disruption of the sweat duct.


In dermatology the term calluse means an area of the skin's outer layer that is especially dry, thickened or toughened as a response to continual irritation, pressure or friction. Surface of calluses is often covered with the hard dry skin. Calluses do not involve deeper layers of the skin and are not painful. As the repeated coercion is required – typical places where calluses occur are hands and feet, but they may also occur on any part of the body where moderate, constant pressure occurs. When the source of pressure is removed, calluses usually disappear by themselves.


Corns (that sometimes are also called clavi, scientifically - helomas) are cone-shaped calluses with the hard shiny surface surrounded by reddened painful area and with their points protruding into the deeper layer of skin. Hard corns (heloma durum) occur on dry, flat surfaces of thin or glabrous skin, most frequently on the top of toes or fingers. Soft corns are usually found between two toes, their surface remains moist (while the center of the corn is not soft), and skin surrounding them stays normal.


Some diseases named hyperkeratoses produces calluses in the areas where no rubbing or pressure occur:
  • keratosis palmaris - produces corns in the creases of the fingers;
  • keratosis plantaris – produces corns on the non-weight-bearing parts of soles;
  • actinic keratosis – may produce calluses due to excessive exposure to sun, aging or hormonal shifts.


Warts is a common skin problem. Warts - are small hard cauliflower-like growths on the skin that are caused by infection with certain viruses, mainly by the human papilloma virus (HPV).

Warts may appear anywhere on the skin, but most often they occur on the hands or feet. Planar warts (those occuring on the soles of the feet) are the most painful and most difficult to treat as they occur on the pressure-bearing areas where they may become depressed beneath the surface of the skin. Some warts disappear by themselves after a few months while the others last for years and can recur. Some types of warts, can be contagious from region to region, but are not transferrable between different species.

as a treatment for dry skin related conditions*:

"My son had skin problem - warts and tried the tester bottle of your lotion. Some of the warts went away in one or two days. I purchased a bottle of Gloves In A Bottle and within 2 weeks they all disappeared."
Deborah Akin
P. passed Gloves In A Bottle to one of her customers looking after a bedridden person and the Gloves In A Bottle helped to handle the bed sores. She was very happy with it (and re-ordered).
"My husband... lost 150 lbs, and has kept it off by walking and walking and walking. As a result, his size 14C feet have suffered blisters and mean calluses. This has resulted in countless topical steroid and antibiotic prescriptions, temporary healing and then a repeat.

Your product solved the problem. It is quite amazing. He is walking the same amount without band-aids. He goes to a podiatrist every six weeks - no problems! I also solved a tremendous rash on my leg (dry skin) that was constantly itching. Topical steroids and creams exacerbated it. With Gloves In A Bottle it healed in less than two weeks and the discoloration that was ugly and splotchy disappeared!"
"I am a Pharmacist at a drugstore in Kentucky. I have used Gloves In A Bottle on my children’s rashes in the buttocks and groin areas. These rashes are common in the summer humidity, and the child complains of a "raw" feeling down there. These rashes respond very well to your product, and I have ordered more Gloves In A Bottle and will recommend it to parents who ask for a treatment for this type of rash.
"My profession as a skin care technician is a wonderfully rewarding job except that my hands are always in water. This coupled with the natural aging process has made my skin very dry. I am well aware and even sell many types of lotions and creams, yet as soon as my hands go into water even the most expensive creams are washed away.

Gloves in a Bottle doesn't wash away and seems to provide a protective layer over the skin to lock the natural moisture in. I've not seen any other type of ointment/lotion that provides added moisture and protection at the same time."

"I obtained your product last evening and I found it to be sensational. The question I have is that I am a burn victim of approximately 4 years ago, with burns over 40% of the upper body. Have you had any responses from other burned victims or perhaps studied the effects of your product on grafted skin? It was extremely welcome on my hands.

If you need a test case I would be more then happy to volunteer. Where can one purchase your product in quantities as I must apply at least 2 times per day as drying skin is a byproduct of grafts? Thank you in advance."
