I suggest Ahava products made from minerals from the Dead Sea.

go natural with preservative free LIQUID LANOLIN. It will raise your vit. D level also. IMHO. been using it for years. but then I like Coconut oil, almond oil and grape-seed oil.

Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream.

I get it in the baby aisle at Target. I first got it for my son and then realized it was much better than regular lotions. It's just like regular lotion, but thicker and lasts for a long time. It's also fragrance-free, so you won't smell perfume-y.

I have the same problem with you.
This might surprise you but i use Aveeno.
I swear by that brand.
I get to the point that instead of using my regular facial Lab Series skin care, i just slather Aveeno on my face. It is the one with the green cap. (Note there is this Aveeno with blue cap I think, it makes your skin icky and oily - so I just use this green cap one)
It works like charm in the winter and it is much cheaper than Lab Series.

One thing that also helped my dry skin is to take apple cider vinegar, put a small capful in a cup of water, and then rinse my face with it after my shower. My dry and tight skin is gone. I now keep a small bottle of ACV in my shower and a cup lol. Don't rinse it off either, it's such a dilute amount you don't smell it when it dries. I haven't needed to put lotion on since.

I do love the Palmer's lotion too though

Theraplex cream probably is stronger than anything people will cite. Personally I'd check internal hydration, medication side effects, and indoor humidity before going to that extreme.

My son is a swimmer and his skin dries out in the winter terribly. At night, he uses Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream for Very Dry skin. It is very emollient and contains a lot of skin soothing ingredients as well. He still has breakouts on his forehead, so he has to limit what he puts there. Of course, he would never let anyone know what he's using!

He can't use anything that heavy during the daytime in the winter so I think he uses some Clinique for Men that is pretty lightweight and just around those areas that get super dried out and chapped.

I inherited my MIL's bottle of Gold Bond moisturizer after she died. It's not something I would have ever bought for myself. Within a week of daily use, my always-dry feet were softer than they'd been since childhood. I was sold! I think it's a great body moisturizer for dry skin.

I agree with above poster. Hubby loves his Gold Bond moisturizer for feet. It isn't at all greasy. I used to use Lubriderm but they must have changed the formular as a few years ago it started to make me have blotches. " My "very favorite is vanilla lavender scented "Origins" in a jar. It is quite pricey so I don't use it daily.

Lots of interesting suggestions here.

Nivea is amazing. They have great moisturizing products for men and women. It works on every portion of my body besides the hands.

Coconut oil is another great natural alternative. Being from south India, we use it very regularly for hair and body beautification. However, it cant withstand below freezing temperatures very well and up here, its always below freezing in the winter.
