My skin dries out, some areas get scaly and itchy during the cold, dry winter weather when the humidity is low, especially my hands and arms. During warmer, more humid weather it isn't a problem. Other body areas are affected also, to a lesser degree. My stomach and legs, shoulders itch as well.
I have been using Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Healing Lotion. It helps some, but I need to use it at least 2x a day be of much effect. It isn't greasy and absorbs well. I apply it to the affected areas after my evening shower. I use olive oil and goat's milk soaps. Stopped using traditional soap several years ago, love these. I enjoy the different aromas, and they lather well and rinse clear leaving no residue behind. Our city water is very hard, off the scale on a hardness test kit strip.
I have heard of Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy lotion, but have yet to try it. Anyone used it? I am interested in reviews between these two products, what has been the best for you and why. Guess it drives you a bit nuts when you have trouble getting rid of dry skin itch
