How to help winter dry skin?

My skin starts drying out in the winter (and this year in the fall). I use Johnson & Johnson lotion (purple bottle) for everyday use, but I need something better in the colder months. I would like something that still has a nice fragrance. Any suggestions?

  • Nope sorry. I have the same issue. I try to use body wash with moister/lotion in it. I just keep putting on lotion daily. I use Oil of Olay on my face.

  • Keep your house hydrated. Get a vaporizer or humidifier.
    I still say you can't go wrong with a light application of plain ol' vaseline

  • Hi, I have a couple of suggestions, well, one is a statement, but Johnson and Johnson has Q15 in it, yuk. I have some all natural lotion that works really well.

  • Okay, what is Q15 and why is it yuk? Where do you get your lotion? Is there a special brand?

  • we use shea butter, just one ingredient and it is all natural! we also run humidifiers in the winter. stay hydrated! avoid long hot showers (even though they feel so good in the winter!)
    also, do you take fish oil, udo's oil or hemp oil? that is good for your skin too.
    one more thing that might help is a skin brush, you can get a long handled skin brush and brush your skin before your shower.
