Hi There's 3 tings you can try to get over this, first there is using some good old olive oil, olive oil is really good for your skin, it may have a bit of a pong you may not like, then that like all good medicines.

Next there is aloe vera, again very good for most skin problems.

And last try some baby oil, if you think about it its very good for baby's skin, so think how good it for ours.

Your probably find answers for these, just google each for dry skin.

Do hope this helps.

Good Luck
