How to Fix a Dry Penis: 5 Things that Work

Dry skin is the worst, but dry penile skin takes the cake. The skin of the penis is thin and delicate, so it dries and cracks faster than other parts of your body. If youfind yourself with this common issue, there are some surefire ways to fix dry penile tissue and prevent it from recurring in the future. Here are five easy ways to keep penile skin soft and strong.

Tip #1: Switch it Up in the Shower

There are days you want a hot shower, and other days where a cold one is more refreshing. However, warm water is best, because extreme temperatures can irritate the skin and strip away the body’s natural oils. The penile skin is also very sensitive, similar to that around your eyes, so extreme temperatures can feel extra uncomfortable once the water hits your johnson.

Another shower switcheroo: change your fragranced body wash or soap to a mild, all-natural cleanser or a baby wash. Sensitive formula cleansers like Man1 Body Wash are the best products to choose, because they are made for  delicate skin and don’t include parabens and sulfates, which can dry out dermal tissue and cause cracking and redness.

Tip #2: Keep it Loose

Dry skin happens for many reasons, but many men don’t realize their choice of bottoms – pants, underwear, and shorts – may be causing irritation below the belt. When your bottoms are too tight, the fabric rubs up against the penis, causing chaffing and cracking, which can make you more vulnerable to bacterial and fungal infections down there.

If your skivvies or knickers are too tight, trade them in for something that gives your penis a little room to stretch out. And don’t forget to get it in a soft, airy material like cotton or bamboo for extra protection against drying and chafing.

Tip #3: Lube it up

Sex and masturbation are both good for you in a variety of ways. However, when you don’t have sufficient lubrication, dry rubbing takes a serious toll on the goods. While the friction may feel great in the moment, or you may feel awkward about using lube during partner sex, having a lubricant handy is a must. Not only can dry sex or masturbation cause skin drying and cracking, but it can also rob you of penile sensitivity over time.

Pick a lubricant that is water-based and free of irritants. Some people use coconut oil in a pinch (or on purpose) due to its natural qualities, low cost, and pleasant feel.

Tip #4: Take a Break

While sex and masturbation are wonderful ways to stay healthy and happy, too much of anything can be problematic. Overusing your penis, even with lube, can cause friction burn, leading to dryness and cracking, not to mention a red-hot heat rash.

Give your penis enough time to recover between sessions, and be sure to wash well afterward every time you put him to work. Not only will a break now and then prevent dryness; it will also preserve sensitivity.

Tip #5: Soften Things Up

In addition to updating your shower routine, you should moisturize your penis every day to preserve sensitivity, keep the skin silky soft, and protect it against bacteria and infection. Apply a specially formulated penis health crème such as Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin, to hydrate and protect your manhood.. This crème also has other essential vitamins and nutrients that strengthen the skin and boost blood flow, making your penis stronger and flexible for fun times to come.
