The men in my life have dry, irritated skin that’s pretty manageable in the summer, but when the dry winter is here, they suffer with very dry, itchy skin. My husband complained for years about how itchy his skin was in the winter and I bought him literally all the dry skin creams out there. Year after year, none of them worked.

Then comes my son in his first winter and just like his Dad, has the driest skin during the winter months. We went to the pediatrician and he suggested we get the Aveeno Baby Soothing Hydration Creamy Wash and it helped a lot but didn’t totally fix the issue. This year, encouraged by some success from that wash, I bought them this lotion. Man, has it helped tremendously – it is night and day.

Check out this impressive ingredient list:
1. Glycerin & Panthenol (B5) are the humectants in the list that help moisturize the skin by attracting and holding onto water.
2. Petrolatum is a fantastic option for very dry skin because it prevents any moisture loss brought forward by the humectants above.
3. Oat Flour and Oat Extract strengthen the skin’s barrier and help soothe any effects of eczema and rosacea.

Don’t just listen to me and my family’s experience. Both Amazon and Aveeno’s website have astoundingly great reviews for this product.

In my opinion, the best thing about the Aveeno Restorative Skin Therapy Oat Repairing Cream is that it was tested on the sensitive and distressed skin of adults who were undergoing systemic oncology treatment. As a result of different cancer treatments, these patients can experience dry, red, itchy and peeling skin. In Aveeno’s tests, “87% agree that this restorative body cream provides long-lasting comfort and leaves dry skin looking visibly healthier.”

Do you or a loved one experience irritated dry skin? Try this cream out and let me know how it goes!
