Chapstick and Vaseline work best, at least cost.

(Most pricey lotions are just Vaseline plus stuff to pretty it up.)

I was wondering the same thing, my skin gets dry in the winter anyhow and have been looking at some things to help, seems like a cream to put on before bed and after waking helps my face tons, now body lotion I haven't found a kind I like real well yet. I would stay away with anything that has alcohol in it makeup, lotions, exc, they really dry the skin out. I am gonna venture to a store this weekend that is supposed to be all natural that a friend of mine loves, so we will see. Good luck.

Having grown up on the moist East Coast, and having had oily skin most of my life, I never experienced dry skin until I lived in Montana for a couple of years.

In the winter, the combination of the dry cold outside and the heat inside made the skin on my face dry and itchy. At the same time, my skin is sensitive. I tried several products and the two what worked the best for me were: Eucerin Anti-Wrinkle skin cream for sensitive skin (didn't care about the anti-wrinkle thing, but it is wonderful stuff) for my face, and Gold Bond lotions for hands and body.

I'm back on the East Coast, but still swear by and recommend these products.

Thanks Montanamom. The aisles are full of so many different products, it becomes overwhelming.

I always carry a chapstick or carmex, store brands are just as good.
On the lotion front, avoid ones with alcohol or fragrance. The tend to increase dryness in the skin. Keri is a brand I like, although I go with Suave as long as it is one with vitamin E. Consistent use is very important!
