I have eczema, and my fave is sensitive but SUPER dry right now. I use a cream Aveeno cleanser to wash, and then Shiseido moisturizing lotion and usually a bit of Aquaphor to moisturize even more. However, my skin is ALWAYS dry and just doesn’t go away. Help?

Perhaps try Cetaphil moisturizing cream ? (The link goes to drugstore.com, and the 140+ reviews are generally favorable, citing it as a remedy against dryness, sensitivity, and eczema.) I use it for winter dryness and it works like a charm. It also helped to significantly reduce & clear up my sister’s acne.

I put Rosebud Salve on super dry areas at night. I would say it is similar to Aquaphor, but less greasy.

For REALLY, really dry areas even putting on a thin layer of vaseline helps, I’ve found.

I also have eczema, but not much on my face unless I’m having an allergic reaction. I used to have dry face skin and I would not wash my face before I go to bed (if I didn’t wear makeup or it felt clean enough). That was so my skin could rejuvenate it’s natural oils. I guess it wouldn’t work well if you have acne, but I didn’t and it was fine.

I don’t have eczema, but I do have very sensitive skin and tend to get dry patches in winter. The thing that always helps me is Juice Beauty’s Redness Reducing Serum. It’s 100% organic, which is excellent for sensitive skin. I can’t get through winter wthout it.

I use Cetaphil! I have really dry skin as well, and have tried alot of creams, and found this one works best for me! Before, my face will be moisturized for lk 30 mins, and then my make up will start looking bad, but now my face looks good the whole day!

maybe you need your vitamins. remember to load up on you vitamins especially A,E and C! try using mild facial oil-based moisturizers instead of the water based or cream like too if you still really have dry skin. try shiseido’s =)

what kind of shiseido moisturizer? you want a cream that’s super rich.
a friend of mine has eczema and he saw a dermatologist and got some lotions – its worked really well. His face doesn’t peel anymore and if he feels dry during the day he just puts on a little bit of eucerin/aquaphor or whatever he happens to have around. He said that nothing worked before, so it might be worth it to see a derm.

Jojoba and grapeseed oils are great moisturizers for dry skin. Jojoba is the closest oil to your skin’s natural oil composition, is non-comedogenic, and has a high concentration of natural vitamin E which helps skin heal.

Make sure your Shiseido moisturizer is free of alcohols and fragrances. I used to love their products, but realized the high concentration of cetyl alcohol and fragrances were freaking out my sensitive skin.

Aveeno is advertised as a brand for sensitive skin, but Eucerin and Cetaphil are commonly recommended by derms. Eucerin in particular specializes in care for rosacea and eczema, so you might check out some of their skincare options.

Good luck and keep us updated!

I have really bad eczema too. I slather my face in aveeno in the morning and right before I go to bed. If it’s super dry a good idea is to leave some aveeno out with no top on until it gets a bit harder and richer and use that!
