Yes! Like most, my skin becomes very dry and itchy during the winter. I use Cocoa Butter (palmers as it is thicker than any other I've found). Plus, about once a week, I rub baby oil all over after my bath. During the summer, I like to use scented lotions (like Bath and Body works) only because we have super sticky summers and they keep me smelling clean and fresh (IMO). After a day in the sun, I apply cocoa butter to help replenish moisture loss.

On my face in winter I use Olay Total Effects, but in the summer I use Purpose. On my body in winter I use Aveeno Oatmeal and in the summer I use Lubriderm with SPF 15. On occasion when I get patches of dry skin, I use Aquaphor

Yes, I do. Even at my age, 40-something ;), I still tend to have adult acne once in awhile. And, with the current environmental conditions, my skin has gotten desensitized over the years. But, I still believe in taking care of the skin as you get older. So, in the summer, I use Aveeno ultra-calming daily moisturizer with SPF 30. In the winter, I use Neutrogena combination skin daily moisturizer then I apply the Aveeno oil-free tinted moisturizer with SPF 30, so I just brush on sheer powder foundation lightly for a natural coverage. At night, I wear Roc's Age defying night cream to replenish the natural emollients the skin loses in the day.

I'm so ashy all the times of the year. So I use vaseline first and let it soak in.Then I use Nivea lotion. Because using lotion alone, I'll be ashy within a hour.I've tried several of lotions such as Jergen's, & Vaseline.Really,I'm still on my search for the best lotion for me.So if anyone has tried something that is great...PLEASE, let me know!!!However, I try to use a moisturizing soap and a oil based exfoliator during the week to control the dryness.

Mary Kay's Extra Emollient Night Cream is fantastic for my feet all year around. I works wonders for extremely dry skin (face too). My family is also a fan of Melaleuca's Renew Body Lotion...ash be gone!

In the summer, i hardly ever use lotion because lotion causes my skin to feel sweaty.especially my hands. so when i do need to use some, the only product i use is the Vaseline aloe fresh moisturizing body gel. it moistens my skin so well without the greasy feel. they sell it at walmart. not sure how much it cost tho but its great stuff. in the winter, i like to use SKINMILK body wash and lotion. the lotion costs about 5 dollars. also sold at walmart or drugstores♥

In the winter, I use Jergens Extra Dry Skin lotion (orange on the bottle). It's always been perfect for my skin. In the summer I can use just about anything but normally just keep using the Jergens. I've been using it since I was about 14 (and I'm 30 now), so it's like an old friend.

in winter my skin gets terribly ashy, I get out of shower and putbaby oil all over my body once i'm dry and once the baby oil soaks in then i put on a thin lotion like Lubriderm. In summertime I skip the baby oil and just use a really good thick lotion called Hempz. You can get it at Walmart for $5. Its made from virgin hemp seed and it isn't greasy. It's thick so it moisturiezes longer, its all natural, and it smells good.
