Very dry skin

Hello, I have very dry, itchy skin and use epaderm to wash with as well as cetraben to moisturise but just wondered whether anyone could recommend anything else. I've tried e45 & aveeno but no luck.

HI there

Have you ever tried using a hydration serum rather than a moisturizer? Your skin could be dehydrated. Often people think hydration and moisturization is the same thing.

Dehydrated skin lacks water and therefore needs to be hydrated. Dry skin lacks oil and needs to be moisturized. It is important to distinguish between these two skin conditions because they can often be treated incorrectly.

Why don't you try some natural remedy so that you won't deal with any side effects? You can use aloe vera gel as a moisturizer. Use this before going to bed and apply on dry areas and cover it with soak or glove. Leave this for the whole night to get better results.
