Tips For Skin Wellness 
Continence Care Management: What a Health Care Professional Needs to Know 
From The National Association For Continence
Skin Wellness Tips 
Gently wash the perineal area at least once a day and 
immediately after an incontinent episode 
1. Always wash from front to back 
2. Use of “no rinse” wash is preferred over regular 
bar soap 
3. Products should be dye-free and fragrance-free 
4. Apply the product to a wash cloth and gently 
wipe skin to remove soil 
5. Skin should be patted dry thoroughly 
6. Don’t rub skin vigorously
Skin Wellness 
• Use moisture barrier creams 
or “skin protectants” 
– Protect skin from infection and 
other skin irritation issues 
after cleansing the skin 
• Use a barrier film 
– Sprayed on the skin to form a 
transparent film 
– Acts as a moisture barrier 
(reduce chaffing) 
– Remember to use an alcohol-free 
product
Skin Wellness 
• Pay attention to allergies, such as latex 
– Important when choosing a product to ensure there 
will be no irritation associated with an allergy 
• Remember: the less contact skin has with urine 
or stool, the lower the risk of skin irritation 
• Us an absorbent product that rapidly wicks away 
moisture/urine from the skin and retains fluids in 
between incontinent episodes
