    Ooo @twhig this is a good question! I feel like it’s trial and error honestly.

    Personally, I enjoy using Avocado oil! Being from California, I can’t help my love for avocados haha. But what I do is I make sure to wet my skin with water first, gently absorb some of that water with a gentle cloth, then apply the avocado oil right on. If my skin is really extra dry, sometimes I layer on a lotion like cetaphil on top. I used to do this all the time when I lived on the East Coast during the harsh winters! Worked like a charm 🙂

    I hope this helps you! Another natural moisturizer I’ve been wanting to try is Tallow. Yup, straight up tallow! Oh and I forgot to mention that when my “better” eczema is really dry- and by better I mean the part of my skin that doesn’t need to breathe too much- I use straight up raw organic shea butter.

    Please do let us know what you have chosen! Would love to hear what is working(or not working!) for you 🙂

    Mary Alice from FB says: Lush Dream Cream, although some may have allergy issues. But for me the ingredients are OK.

    Handa from FB says: Physiogel A.I. Lipid Balm & Cetaphil Restoraderma are helpful.

    Thanks for weighing in!

    Hi twhig, this is a great question! We have an article that talks about natural ingredients found in moisturizers and the benefits of these ingredients: https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/moisturizer-ingredients/. Also, one of our writers, Terry, has some specific natural product suggestions in this video: https://atopicdermatitis.net/video/choosing-skincare-products/.

    I hope this is helpful and that others with specific suggestions will comment with what works for them.

    Let us know how it goes if you try anything new!
