Best moisturizer for extremely dry skin?

I have really dry skin even now that it's summer time. If any one else has dry skin issues I would really appreciate knowing what out there has worked for you. Thanks.

  • I like using Eucerin myself and my daughter has ecezma and that works great for her. Olive oil is good and so is Almond oil...

  • Try olive oil, after your shower/bath. But dont go out in sun too soon afterwards otherwise you'll fry! Its been used as a moisturiser forever :). Or if your looking for conventional, try a 10% glycerine cream from your Pharmacy, that's also works wonders.

  • My son has dry flaky skin. On his face it looks like he has some disease if we don't put lotion on it. Anyway, the pediatrician says try lotion with tea tree oil. We haven't bought it yet. I'm concerned about the distinctive smell & DS being ok with it on his face. I'm getting Nature's Gate Skin Therapy Tea Tree. The company also makes one without the tea tree oil.

  • Get something with urea in it as soon as possible. For me in the UK that would be Eucerin. It's a miracle! x

  • I am loving Jergen's overnight repair. My hands & legs get crazy dry (they look white, if I scratch they flake, etc) - I put it on at night and in the morning they're super-soft and look healthy.
