I get severe dry, scaly skin when the winter first hits (and you are blasting heat in homes and offices), which is a huge change from my oily skin of summer! Even my ear lobes are dry! (imagine that!)
Pick up a tube of Aquaphor - it is the BEST at protecting skin and holding in moisture! It is also great for sensitive and atopic (read: Eczema) skin!
It has made a huge difference with my hands, nose, chapped lips, and even my pesky dry ear lobes! Safe for children too!!!
