I have naturally dry skin. I lived in Florida all of my life and still had to moisturize with an intense lotion like Lubriderm everyday. I recently moved to DC and now have the pleasure
of experiencing the cold winter. It makes my skin so tight, dry and itchy.

I use baby oil all over before getting out of the shower and gold bond cream after toweling off (its very heavy....and works wonderfully during the spring & summer) but this still doesn't seem to help much.

Anybody know a better lotion that I can use???

I love body shop's body butters. The shea butter one is supposed to to be the most moisturizing. I prefer the strawberry, mango and satsuma ones though because they smell better.

Definately try body butter. Also switch to a more moisturizing shower gel. I really like the Olay with body butter ribbons.

shea butter for drier areas, TBS body butters are great. try to get a creamy shower product instead of a gel texture. you can also try oils like coconut or macadamia, they both smell good and are absorbed quickly by the skin (without leaving it greasy).

For a creamy soap, LUSH's body butters are great. It's the most moisturizing soap I've used.

You've got really good sugestions and I will just add my favorite body butter for the winter months/dry skin time - Korres Quince Body Butter , it's beautifully fragrant and has the rare quince scent ( you don't find it everywhere
) and works amazingly on dry skin !

I live in CO-is so dry in here.

I use alba botanica very emolient body lotion for dry skin with AHA-is pretty good for moisture but i am not crazy about the smell.

I also like palmer's cocoa butter lotion.

I live in Wisconsin so i know something about winter skin haha i use Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion it has colloidal oatmeal it absorbes quickly and is fragrance free my hands and knuckles use to be so dry itchy and red but i use that for my hands and it got rid of the drypatches and my hands are softer than ever mine only took a couple days to get better but i used the lotion like 20 times a day...oh and its cheap and you can even get the wal-mart band which it what i ended up switching to because its the same thing just cheaper

I think Shea Body Butter of THe Body Shop is a good choice.It's made special for dry skin.But remember to apply much more on the elbow, knee and heel.

Now I'm using Shea Body butter of The [email protected] Shop and it's great too.But as my region is not very cold so I only use body butter in winter.In summer I choose body lotion.

Clinique's Deep Comfort Body Butter is PERFECT for the winter. It's pretty thick and really luxurious feeling. It is 100% fragrance free to which is a big plus if you like to wear fragrance. Here is the link:

Clinique | Sun + Body | Body | Deep Comfort Body Butter

"More than a simple cream that soothes and penetrates adding moisture. You'll feel a whole new kind of softness to dryness-prone spots-like elbows, knees and heels. Butter-rich. So silky, skin drinks it up instantly, stays soothed and comforted all day."

I haven't found anything I like more than this. HTH!
