  • I was!! My hair got all dried out and yucky to! I had to use baby oil after every bath/shower and use the curel brand lotion. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water to!

  • Vitamin world has some awesome vitamin e cream. Its 4bucks though for a tiny container they don't sell the big ones anymore for some reason. But it works for any skin problems!!

  • My skin is very dry! I always use BioOil all over my body when I get out of the tub at night, in the mornings I use Neutrogena lotion or Aveeno Soothing Moisture Cream (the Aveeno is actually my son's AveenoBaby, but it claims to clear up even eczema - and ti works!) before I get dressed.
