I use Aveeno lotion everyday, drink a lot of water, avoid hot or long showers..
It sucks I have it to but mines is basically under control now
How about using plain glycerin from the drugstore before you dry off when you come out of the shower. A drop or two of glycerin with a drop or two of water works nicely.
Also, you may have the heat on high and no humidity. I would suggest lowering the heat a little and getting a humidifier or filling a large bowl with water and putting it near a heat source.
Also, are you getting enough rest? I find that my skin is sensitive when I have not had enough rest.
Also, take warm showers instead of hot in the winter so your skin doesn't dry out as much.
Those are just a few ideas that may help you.
hey, I also have skin problems, excually skin problem is the only problems I have related to my body. My heels are insanely dry (can't sleep with silk sheats -.-) and my hands are always dry. I get stretch marks because I have so dry and thin skin, and I get exem. But my skin is driest during the winter (and i live in Island, great! ) And i can't go to tanning beds anymore because I get really tanned and then my skin gets dryer and the tan gets uneven on my hands and my cheeks.
What works best for me is a cream my doctor gave me and there are steroids in it, so try something that has steroids. (but i was given the cream for the exem, but it is supposed to work on dry skin.)
also if you eat one spoon of natural olive oil a day, or take a bath with olive oil.
baby oil is also good for me :)
And shea butter is great, i bought a cream i Greece wich has shea butter, olive oil, a, e vitamins and herbs or something and it hydrates so well i used to get pimpels when i used to much of it, but just one hehe :)
(sorry about my english) hope I helped you a little bit :)
When I was pregnant I had aligator skin, something that helps is change your detergent to ALL FREE and the softner sheets too, I didnt realize that was most of my dry skin problem was because i was allergic to detergent, Huge difference, having my baby seemed to make it 80% better, even the next day in the hospital i noticed a huge difference the pain from the dry skin and scaley look was gone, babies just take a lot out of your skin. Good Luck and Congratulations
