Extremely dry skin

United States

I have a dry skin type. You can really see it on my legs. I really need a *good* lotion for my legs. I use lotion on them, but I am talking about a lotion that actually will bring my skin back to life. What kind of lotion do you use or what do you recommend that I buy? Does it cost alot?

I love Avon's Skin So Soft. The Body Oil works well for me, it is a spray. Although it is normally $8.50 , but you can get it, a body wash, and moisturizer for $12.99. If you need anything just let me know. www.youravon.com/susanaldridge

Almond oil or grape seed oil works awesome as a skin conditioner. Almond oil is harder to find in my area, but grape seed oil is available at the local grocery store. They're both pretty light & won't leave you feeling sticky or gooey.

The skin becomes dry because the food nutrient couldn't reach such area. Try this home-made lotion: 1/2 carrot, grated 1 avocado, smashed 2 tbs. almond oil Combined them together to a good blend. Apply it on your legs and other dry skin in your body. The excess of this lotion can be placed in your ref for a day or two. This is the formula of Symone Raven from India.

Before you apply the lotion to your legs, steam first the skin of your legs, like, cover it with hot towel for seconds in order to open your pores. Then apply the lotion to your skin. You can do it am, pm and evening, as you wish. If your blood pressure is stable, you can eat fresh avocado because it has natural oil and nutrients.

yeah, go for something made with actual natural oils. don't get expensive stuff with tons of chemicals in it. aloe might be really good too. natural, light, and soothing. maybe something with rose water would be really good too.

I used to have a very dry skin also. I found out that applying lotion everyday will help your skin. It moisturizes and keeps your skin smooth and fair. Since then, i make it a daily habit after taking a bath to apply lotion on my skin.

I find that baby oil applied right out of the shower/bath works great! I get the kind that has aloe in it

I like the Curel for extremly dry skin, I also like Nivea. You can also get some creamy vasoline, that rubs in better. There are so many good lotions out there, Avon has some good ones too. I have dry skin in the winter too. You can get some good moisturising shower gel also, that should help. Good luck.

My doctor swears by Aveeno because back in the day that was an actual prescription lotion doctors gave for dry skin. But also I've heard over and over that lotion with shea butter is the best kind possible. I have to say, it is the best kind I've ever used, any kind with shea butter.

Try Aquaphor or Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, either is awesome. Somewhat greasy, takes a few to soak in. Best used at night, will soak in...really heals the skin. Costs 4 to 5 bucks a tube, but a few dabs will do..let me know..I've used both, and love both. I need to buy either, I am a fish out of water :)

Even though it's the Hand Cream, it will restore your legs to the "bathing beauty". From the cold, our skin becomes chapped. This cream helps the chapped skin...
