Best product for super dry skin and peeling lips

I am just a mess of dryness and have tried multiple products without success.

 

So... What's YOUR absolute favorite product to for the "cure" ? Smiley Happy

Baby Lips is the only thing that has worked for me.

Yup, Aquaphor gets my vote also.  It's super gentle and super emollient.  Seals your lips with a protective barrier against environmental damage like pollutants, dry air, etc.  I have multiple little pots of this in my purse, bag, nightstand, bathroom, etc.  You'll notice that doctors recommend Aquaphor for babies with skin/diaper rashes too because it doesn't have any weird ingredients to cause irritation.

The Jack Black lip balms cured my peeling- its really the first thing that has worked for me and I've tried everything from aquaphor to Clinique with no success. 

Re: Best product for super dry skin and peeling lips

I have been uncomfortably dry my entire life. I have never found anything that moisturizes like Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream (you can buy it at Whole Foods for aprox $40).  I keep trying other lotions for the anti aging benefits but always go back to Dr Hauschka when my face becomes uncomfortable because it will be soothed other night.  If you'd like something at Sephora, the most moisturizing one I've tried is Algenist overnight cream.  I'm so dry I can wear that during the day but Dr H is more moisturizing and calming for half the price.  I also suspect I'm breaking out from Algenist.  

 
I've also had the same problems with my lips.  Nuxe lip balm is so thick it will stay on all night and has done wonders for me. 
 
This may not help you, but just incase…  out of desperation, a couple years ago I stopped using cleansers w sulfates and parabens and also switched to more natural laundry detergents.   My skin is considerably more comfortable (less itchy etc).  I don't know which is the thing that helped the most but I figured those are all positive changes so I didn't bother to find out.  
 
Good luck!

Re: Best product for super dry skin and peeling lips

Aside from all the other harmful side effects of parabens and sulfates, I've also heard many people have better success when they switch to all natural products. Another thing to consider is that water itself as an ingredient can contribute to drying out skin. I find products that use an aloe base to be much more effective in combatting dry skin than those that contain a high concentration of water and also waxes and fillers. 

I used to struggle with dry skin, but finally found my cure on the recommendation from a friend of mine.  I use the Airelle hydrating cleanser, and then apply the Airelle Intense Repair Componce after I dry my face. They also have a really nice and gentle exfoliator that I use as a mask about once or twice a week that leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft, smooth and hydrated. The stuff is not cheap, but I love it and to me it's worth it. I hope you find your cure too!

Re: Best product for super dry skin and peeling lips

Great advice ladies! So many new things to try. I am upping my water intake and trying natural coconut oil. I also had ordered Clinique and am also trying that. I see a little improvement so far on my skin but not much on my lips. I'll definitely be purchasing some of these recommendations. Thanks!

Re: Best product for super dry skin and peeling lips

Pond's Cold Cream (the green one). OMG this stuff is so amazing! It helps with dryness if you leave it on for ten minutes and then wash off. I highly HIGHLY recommend it!
