What brand of lotion works well for you? It's driving me crazy. The central heat is making it worse and I haven't found a good lotion that really works. I am open for brand names here!! My skin is so dry! Yikes!

Cortaid is a brand which is actually hydrocortisone, but they also make a lotion. I use this when my hands get really, really dry in the winter.

I am looking for an all over body lotion. It seems to get really bad when it gets so windy too like right now! That old humidity goes way down and of course we have well water which is hard on your skin to begin with so for the time being, until we can afford a water softner/conditioner, I am looking for a good lotion!!

I think the Cortaid can be used as a body lotion as well. However, I also like Vaseline's Intensive Rescue lotion. (Fragrance Free.)

I like Eucerin Moisturizing Cream. You have to really rub it in, but it isn't greasy like some creams that are petroleum-based.

Coming from Fl, I am used to tons of humidity...Here in GA, my skin, hair, eyes go crazy in the winter...We put in humidifiers in the bedroom and family room and it's amazing how much it helps. I also exfoliate every day in winter and then apply Trader Joes lavender oil. The problem with most lotions especially really heavy ones, is they contain petroleum which basically stays on the top layer of your skin.

Also drink lots of water and add some fish oil to your diet.

Lotions are full of chemicals and only fix temporarily.

I use coconut oil. It melts at 70degrees so it goes on like paste or lotion and "melts" into your skin.

My doctor recommended it for my daughter's extremely dry skin and it worked! She now has the softest skin ever! No more flakes, no more itch.

My whole family uses it now.

You can use any vegetable or fruit oil. Olive oil is good too. Rub in when your skin is still wet right out of the shower

Any Health food Store. Try to get the unrefined type like this:
Coconut Oil (Extra Virgin)

You can also take this internally.
