  • Try applying a good body butter or moisturizer to your skin after you’ve showered while your skin is still warm and moist. Also increase the amount of water you drink as this too will affect your skin.

  • I’ve a very dry skin too. I use a goat milk lotion with shea butter and rose hip. On my face I use a combi of shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. On my hands I use paw paw or Neutrogena Norwegian formula. Also I need to stay as much as possible away of soaps.

  • I always moisturise after a shower and that helps dry skin become soft and lovely,Nivea dry skin body lotion is brilliant and affordable!

  • I have dry sensitive skin and I find relief in a lot of ways . This happens more in the cold harsh winter season as the wind and cold makes it worse. I use dry skin lotion that contains soothing ingredients such as shea butter, lanolin , oils etc. it will say for very dry skin on the bottle or tube. Also strong fragrance on cosmetics irritates me so not suited to those and I even use unscented facial wipes to remove makeup. In summer try to stay out of the sun and everyday drink heaps of water ( normally 8 glasses for adults ) as that will help hydrate skin as well .

  • exfoliate it so the skin can soak in moisturiser and get a good moisturising cream and apply daily

  • good creams that are like aveeno are great. drink plenty of water as well. aveeno comes in different strengths of moisturising.

  • Also, make sure you drink plenty of water – the best thing for your skin.

  • Lucky you chatee4 – getting to review a product – good to read another review on Dermaveen. I use Vitamin E cream as a basic moisturiser. Always works well. Dermaveen is a good moisturiser too. I have some basic moisturisers that I use on my skin. The cheap and cheerful ones match the expensive ones and can even better some of them!

  • I was recently invited to trial the Dermaveen Daily Nourish Moisturiser. I too have dry skin due to the heat where I live and horrible water quality, my hands and legs always look like snake skin. I was surprised that the Dermaveen actually works! It’s absorbed quickly, smells great and within a week I’ve already noticed my skin us softer and not as dry.
