I was finding none of the body creams were working well for winter weather. I went shopping and found this cream
and gave it a try. Love it! It's not greasy either.
Nivea Body Lotion Repair & Care - Very Dry Skin with Dexpanthenol.
I have dry skin and always have. And in winter, once our furnace goes on . . .it's like every morsel of moisture is depleted out of my body. And besides not being attractive, I get itchy when that happens. We run a humidifier in our house. That helps some. And you can even just boil a pot of water to get some moisture in the air if you don't have a humidifier.
I also found thick moisturizers that are like a balm can really help. I like the Aveeno brand products. I have a couple that come in a tub. One is like a cream and the other is super thick. The super thick one is said to be for eczema but I use it anyway. If I itch from dry skin, that almost always helps. I try to put a good layer on when I get out of the shower. These products aren't really cheap but under 20 dollars and at regular drug stores.
I've also used Amlactin which used to be by prescription. I like that for year round use. It has no scent and I actually DO like a scent. But it works pretty well.
