This winter has been particularly bad for dry skin. I use Avenno lotion on my hand, feet and anywhere else that needs moisture. You do have to do it every day. I work with a lot of paper so I apply it to my hands a few times a day. When I use face scrub I also rub it on the backs of my hands and elbows. It seems to help.

I find vaseline brand works pretty well but you need to make sure you put it on right after you shower and reapply often. Also, once I became conscious of how often I rested on my elbows (at my desk at work, at my desk at school, while on the computer at home) I was able to stop doing it whenever I noticed I was doing it. That might help you, too :)

I really like a product called Lemon Butter. It's a cuticle cream from a store called Lush, but it works great on all parts of the body. It's a vegetarian product from a socially responsible company so it is a little pricey (around $25, but it lasts several months), but you only need a little bit each time. It works all day, and smells just like a fresh squeezed lemon.

When I get a really rough patch of dry skin anywhere and lotion won't do the trick then I use Clinque Moisture Surge for a couple of days and that seems to make it go away. That's for the face but it works great if a part of my skin is really dry.
