: thank youuu
Well I work for a dermatologist and he suggests the moisturizer: AmLactin lotion. It is over the counter. I use it and it is the best you can get over the counter other than Lac-Hydrin lotion which is the perscription form, but he feels they are the same. It kinda has an amonia smell, but you can mix some good smelling lotion in with it.
Also here are some good dry skin tips: You should always moisturize after bathing, it absorbs the best at this time...you should only use soap in your groin, buttocks, and armpit areas. Soap is very bad for people with dry skin. It will make your skin even dryer, unless you physically have dirt on your body, your arms and legs dont need it. Also the things you wash yur clothes with make a diffence. You should use Tide Free, Cheer Free, or All Free, all the others leave a residue on you clothes that irritate dry skin. You shouldn't use bleach or liquid fabric softener either. I know it sounds drastic, but try it for a month and see the difference! I know this was long but I hope it helps.
