So, I have a skin condition, I forgot what it is called, but I have a lot of dry skin. :/ Mostly on my chest, face and my joints. What is a good way to reduce dry skin? I am using Aveeno but it doesn't seem to last.

Any moisturizing cream will do. You just have to make it a habit from time to time to apply on it, especially on extreme weather. And you should increase your water intake. It helps prevent dryness.

not just any cream will do. You have to really experiment here. Not all products work with all types of skin. You have to find what your skin accepts. If your skin doesn't accept it then there is no point in continuing with it.

I forget the exact brand name but I hear this kind of lotion that has a label that looks like cow print is pretty good. I think it's called Udderly Smooth. You could also use Hydrocortisone cream on the spots that break out. I was told a few years ago I had pitosyriasis (not sure if that is how it is spelled) and so once in awhile my skin breaks out in the little spots that looks like slightly red broken skin, I was told to use Hydrocortisone cream when that happens. I suppose I would suggest using Udderly Smooth and then if you break out in spots to use Hydrocortisone cream until they are gone, then go back to Udderly Smooth.

You should try eucerin cream. Its greesy but it will do the trick. If you dont want to do that try hydrolatum. Its good and thick!

My suggestion is to use aloe vera. Not purchase from a jar or in a cream...I'm talking the actual plant. It's the most natural way that I'm aware of to get rid of dry skin. You can get a plant virtually anywhere and all you have to do is break off a piece of one of the "leaves", open it up a bit so the liquid is easily accessible and rub it on the dry spots. It's sooooooo soothing and refreshing. It's best to do it 3 or 4 times a day. Give it a shot! You might be pleasantly surprised!
