I have really dry/itchy skin. Is there anything out there.?

I am wanting to know if there is a vitamin or something that promotes healthier skin, because currently my skin is dry/cracking/itchy and there seems to be nothing I can do to help it.

    Good old fashion petroleum jelly or cocoa butter does the trick, along with lots of drinking water.

    I'd say Carley's Clear & Smooth Natural Soap Bar & moisturiser!!! It's the BEST!! Everybody LOVE it!!! cuz it's ADDICTIVE & really makes you feels CLEAN!! It seems to cure many skin problem indluding eczema, acne, dermatitis, dry skin & many more!

    Carley's Clear & Smooth Moisturiser

    Carley's Clear & Smooth Natural Soap Bar (5)

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NATURAL-SOAP-The-best-in-the-w...

    But the bar is SOO big!!! It's 6 ounces per bar!! How big is that?? I suggest you to try their moisturiser (if it's for the body, try their body lotion at their eBay Store) because you'll get FREE 1 bar soap!!! You WILL love their products as much as I do!!

    And don't forget, oatmeal bath!!

    Here's how:

    You'll need a blender, food processor or coffee grinder and 1 cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of milk (or more according to your liking), 2 tablespoon of honey & olive oil each. You can use instant oatmeal (unflavored), quick oats or slow cooking oats- all work equally as well. For babies, you'll only need about 1/3 cup per bath.

    Blend or process the oats on the highest setting until you have a very fine, consistent powder. To test the colloid property of the oats, stir 1 tablespoon oats into a glass of warm water. If the oats readily absorb the water and give it a milky look and a silky feel, you've blended long enough.

    Giving the bath:

    Sprinkle the oats into a tub of running water and stir the water with your hand several times to ensure even distribution. Add milk, honey & olive oil.

    Feel along the bottom of the tub for clumps and break up any you find.

    Get into the tub carefully as the oats & oils will make the tub even more slippery than usual. Allow yourself to soak in the tub for 15-20 minutes and pat dry with a soft towel rather than rubbing. Slather moisturiser.

    You can use this bath once or twice a day.

    If it's your face, do an oatmeal facial. Mix oatmeal with milk to a paste. Add a teaspoon (or more to get the right consistency) of honey. Apply it to your face & wait for about 20-30 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Follow with a splash of cold water. Pat dry! Apply moisturiser.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Vaseline is always great. There are also many other products for various parts of the body such as hands and feet. I am not sure if its the product itself that is so important, but rather the manner and frequency of application. For example, if you have dry skin on your hands, you can get gloves to wear to bed each night. You lather on moisturizer and then put the gloves on and wear them as you sleep. They have the same system for socks/feet.

    I would go to a good drug store and as the pharmacist for some good products. Then use them as often as you can unless there are side effects.

    Check out Kiehl's (Creme de Corps). I bought some for my girlfriend this Christmas with the same problem and she was very happy within 2 days. It is unscented and meant to be applied at night (a bit heavy) according to the Kiehl's saleslady, so I don't think it matters if it is for a male or female. Sak's carries them along with Kiehl's stores - pricey though. Maybe ebay for a good deal?

    Try one of the hydrating products--stay away from the heavy oils. I use a product called Biotherm, but its expensive. There are a number of hydrating lotions on the market that are cheaper. It may also be that you need to drink more water or it could be an actual skin condition that requires professional help.

    You may want to see a dermatologist if the condition continues.

    Vitamin E is really good for skin that is dry, and Aloe as well, and if its a rash cortizone sould clear it right up.

    There is a salve (that I believe comes from Korea) that is supposed to work wonders. It's called "Cream of Sum Yungai", ask about it the next time you visit an Asian store.
