I have been suffering from dry skin for a very long time. But somehow quite under control when I use lotion and the right kind of cleanser. But it got worse after I had my daughter. And the worst is when I am here in Hungary, especially, in the cold months. I was advised not to bathe frequently, even if I do bathe, not too long and not with very warm water. They make my skin worse. But, to tell frankly, I can't go without bathing and I can't bathe without warm water here. :(
I have tried using many kind of lotions but nothing seemed to work. If it is not rich enough, my skin gets dry fast after it got moisturized. If I use the very rich kind of lotion, I get break outs since I think they clog the pores. Later I tried olive oil and I think it works great. But just a bit on the too oily side. The fact that I have sensitive skin makes it harder for me to overcome the dryness problem. Though not so serious like eczema, but dry nevertheless.
I read online about natural products to try out. So recently I just ordered from UK's ebay, a cream made from Goat milk from Nature's recipe. Good for dry skin, and eczema. You can check Naturesrecipe.co.uk to read about their products. I have tried Goat Milk soap back in Malaysia and it worked great. Based on this past experience on Goat milk product I ordered this one. I'm waiting for it to arrive and I will tell how it works when I have the chance to try it.
