Aquaphor

I put it everywhere, it works wonders. Chapstick, lotion, everywhere.

I use the Laneige hydrating line. There’s a trial kit for about $35 on sephora. It’s amazing –  made me look 5 years younger after my first use!

This brand adds perfume, so if your skin is sensitive, Avene is also pretty awesome. This I found at my local drugstore.

Use a humidifier – it will also really help.

My skin usually gets really dry and flaky during the winter – it’s worse this year because I’m pregnant! I started using coconut oil and Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for dry, sensitive skin. My skin has never been more hydrated! Aquaphor has work in the past for me, as well.

I use to have super dry skin! I started cleansing my face with raw honey, which gently exfoliated my face and when you wash it off, it was left feeling baby smooth! I also use First Aid Beauty as my moisturizer which has been incredible and a true life saver for my dry skin! Serious, the FAB moisturizer is amazing!

Oh and for my body, I use coconut oil!

SweetBeets:  Yikes, it looks like it’s only available on the Canadian Sephora site. Here’s a link to their US site http://www.laneige.com/us/en/main.html. I deal with -20 C / -4 F weather in the winter here and this has been miraculous! Hope you can find a solution!

Oh, also, I’ve started drinking 3 litres of water a day, and my skin is waaaaay less angry.

SweetBeets:  I agree that using a humidifier will help. I’ve recently started using creams from Avene and they are perfect for sensitive skin, the cream I bought is rich but absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave me with an oily face.

I have been having this problem too. I started use Vanicream moisturizer on my face and it has helped SO much. My mom has eczema on her face and swears by this cream.
