I like vitamin E lotion for dry skin. Vitamin E has healing properties and helps skin cells renew themselves.
I also like vaseline dry skin lotion. If I can't find one with vaseline, I look for lotions that have glycerin or petroleum jelly in it because both of these create a barrier on skin and lock in moisture. My skin stays hydrated longer with these ingredients.
I heard good things about aloe vera lotions as well but I haven't tried them. It might be good for dry skin though because aloe vera is good for sunburns.
Has anyone tried aloe vera lotion for dry skin?
