  • Your very best option for dry skin IMO is 100% pure shea butter. I know where to find it in the DFW area for a good price but you ca usually go to health stores and get it as well. I know nursing home patients with chronic dry skin who have used Crisco and it worked better than anything a nurse had ever given them too. But most people aren't willing to do anything like that.. :)

  • What I use that actually works is Vaseline Cocoa butter. Here is a link so you know what it looks like

  • I know this is a late response but I hope you still see it. Ocassionally I get dry and itchy because I spend a lot of time in the bathtub (it is the most comfortable place for me right not) but I also hate lotion and to spend the time applying it to my skin. What works for me is to take a bath and put a good amout of baby oil in it and soak for a little while. Dont use soap though cause then it wont work. It cures me. Good luck.
