    My favorite moisturizer is Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. It is super thick and helps heal some of my driest skin while I sleep. I use it mostly on my hands at night, but it’s great for most any other part of the body too (though I think it’s a bit thick for the face!).

    Thanks for sharing, Stefanie! I’m glad Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream has helped your dry skin. Overnight while you sleep, too! Sounds soothing. -Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

    Dry skin caused by atopic dermatitis can be challenging to manage. The winter season or places with dry climates may further exacerbate your atopic dermatitis causing additional dryness. Some agitating aspects of dry skin can include itchiness (ugh!) and flaking.

    Below is a list of tips for dry skin with relevant links:
    1. Moisturizing with creams or ointments (https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/moisturizing-eczema-prone-skin/)
    2. Using a humidifier (https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/which-humidifier-is-right-for-you/)
    3. Layering in the winter (instead of turning up the thermostat) – https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/keep-skin-moist-dry-weather/
    4. Shower in lukewarm water, or consider a soak! (https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/eczema-bath-treatments/)
