  • olive oil

  • The biggest thing isn't what kind of lotion so much as it is to follow lotion application with a body oil. It will seal the lotion in and allow extra moisture and protection for the skin.

  • Stay away from Vaseline and other petrochemicals; they are toxic and should not be used. (Most OTC products contain harmful chemicals that will only make matters worse for you).

    Try the utter cream, 100% shea butter, or organic, extra-virgin, hexane-free coconut oil.

  • I have really dry skin and have found that Aveeno makes a new cream in a jar that has shea butter and coco butter in it. It is called Positively Nourishing or something like that. It moisturizes for 24 hours and smells nice too. I also like Gold Bond Ultimate Lotions, the ones in the white bottles. Those are great too.
