Guess I would have to go to Amazon. I have looked at the pharmacies here because we used to always have that kind. Never have been able to find it. I thought they stopped making it until you mentioned it.

Darlene, it's sold nearly any place that has first aid supplies - Walgreens, Walmart, etc. - even on Amazon.

Sandy, do they have First Aid Cream where you are? I can't find it anywhere around here.

There is something called Workmans Hands (or Workmens Hands) that is really good for dry skin. A friend of mine was a mailman and used that for his feet that got really bad all the time. It comes in a green plastic container.

Cricket, my fingers did that at one time many years ago. My brother-in-law, an army medic, suggested I use Johnson & Johnson First Aid Cream instead of regular hand cream. It worked for me.

I often have dry skin. There's a reason behind it, but I'm not sure what it is yet, lol. I DO have a thyroid problem. And I swim in a pool with chlorine. The top of my feet are the worst right now. I have scratch marks on them.

I am currently trying Jergens Ultra Healing (repairs and heals extra dry skin with Vitamins C, E, and B5.

I've been using it since Friday and it's working well.

We have low humidity and I have a humidifier in our home. I don't shower daily and use moisturizer daily - my skin is dry but I'm 81 and I think it is as it should be.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Carol, we have lots of high humidity here also. I'd hate to see how dry my skin got if we didn't.

My skin seldom gets very dry living in Oregon because of the humidity. When I first moved to Colorado, at the ripe old age of 21, someone (don't remember who) told me that because of the dry climate I should moisturize my face and hands every day. They said that it was not important to use anything expensive or special, just any good old moisturizer. I took that advice to heart and followed it quite faithfully, though I did go to anti-wrinkle and anti-aging creams as I got older, and I never did develop dry skin. Now that we live in Oregon there is a lot of humidity here, but I still follow my old routine.

Carol

I always have dry skin. Not as bad as when I was in my late teens. I have been using mild, liquid soaps since then and that helps. I have to use lotions most of the time. One problem I have is it is always cold in my house, so I take long hot baths to warm up.

I've always had somewhat dry skin but since my thyroid decided to not work as well, it's really dry. The dermatologist told me to stick to Olay or Dove products & to use them often. I also use coconut oil after my shower & that seems to help some.

This post I pretty long. I was just wondering how many of you share my problem with “winter skin”? My skin is always dry, but winter can be brutal with the flaking & itching.



As winter kicks into high gear, National Winter Skin Relief Day on January 8 reminds us of all the ways we can keep our skin from withering under the harshest of elements.

The dropping temperatures outside and rising thermostats inside sap the amount of moisture in the air. Our skin is first to notice.

Joshua Zeichner MD, Director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research at The Mount Sinai Hospital, makes a few recommendations to help us keep our skin hydrated through the winter. When the chill sets in, avoid the temptation to take those long, hot showers. The heat strips skin of its natural oils (called ceramides) and causes inflammation. Causing the skin cells to swell, when they dry they become loose like poorly grouted tiles and crack.

Instead, take shorter, lukewarm showers and use gentle cleansers. Harsh soaps with surfactants and claims of pH balance can be harsh on the skin. And don’t scrub! Be tender and let the water and lather do the work.
If you have dry, cracked skin, look for a cream or ointment with light petrolatum, hyaluronic acid and ceramides – the natural fats that make up the grout between the skin cell tiles. ~ Joshua Zeichner MD

After bathing, pat the skin dry with a soft towel. Rubbing causes more irritation and inflammation. With the door closed to keep the humidity in, add a moisturizer.

When dressing, wear layers. The closest layer should be made of natural fibers. Soft fabrics like flannel and cotton cause little to no irritation compared to synthetic materials. Layers also are more effective against cold weather.

Winter skin relief comes many forms. Our skin needs hydration at night, too. Adding humidity to the air with a cool mist humidifier will not only hydrate your skin but will also provide a more restful sleep.
