My skin has been feeling really dry so I went out to get something more intensive.
What lotions or balms or whatever do you use in the winter?
Nivea Extended Moisture. Found at Wlagreens, select Walmart, Target, CVS, etc. It may be somewhat pricey but for me it works. What I like about it is that it adds actual humectants to the skin and within 24 hours the cracks and fissures that I struggled with is about 75% gone or healing. To make it work faster, get one of their body washes that contains HydraIQ. Another option but pricey as hell is the Nivea Creme that is made in Germany. I'm sorry but the one made in Mexico is too damn oily and doesn't sink in. I will admit that the German one is thick as hell and a bit of a pain to apply. But a little goes a long way and I still have a tin I bought like 4 years ago and just now I am running low (I only use it in the winter months). But if you want, you can try that one (the Mexican one). You can find it at any Wally World, Target, Wags, CVS, etc. The German made creme can be bought at smallflower.com. I've warned you it is pricey.
Another option would be Palmers Cocoa Butter in a jar. A mix of vaseline and cocoa butter and who knows what else. For me, it works on a limited basis. I always have to switch it up because sometimes it will leave me ashy and greasy. I know an oxymoron. Good luck Jonesy.
