    Vitamin E cream is great... as is Vitamin E oil.

    I am sure there are a million ideas from Google but here are a few of my tips:

    Stay hydrated.
    Try using Organic, Unrefined Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. (Mountainroseherbs.com)
    Try essential oils in a carrier oil (olive,coconut, etc)

    I have the same problem every winter, and drinking more water really helps, I also use heavier face cream during the winter, I make it myself, 1 oz of cocoa butter, 1 oz coconut oil melted and blended with 1 of of grape seed oil, I also add a few drops of lavender essential oil,  works wonderful for me. Good luck!

    This pumpkin mask has worked for me

    2 teaspoons of canned pumpkin
    ½ teaspoon honey
    ¼ teaspoon milk

    Combine all of the ingredients and apply a thin layer on your face or where ever you have dry skin.  Let it sit for about 20 minutes.   Rinse with lukewarm water and then apply a layer of your favorite lotion.

    Baby oil on your skin when you get out of the shower, before you dry off... Let it soak in for a mintue then pat yourself dry... Just don't put it on your face, it'll clog your pores....   Aveeno Oatmeal lotion works great as well

    Hydration through fluid intake and alternating coconut oil and vitamin e (open a liquid gel vitamin capsule to squeeze out the vitamin e), and eating avocados.

    Increase your water level. Drink up! Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of pure water a day to keep your skin and body properly hydrated. Drink more if you’re super active.

    Add oil to your bath. Add a tablespoon or so of almond, jojoba, olive, or hazelnut oil to your bath water after you’ve soaked for about 5 minutes. By soaking first, your skin gets plumped up by the water, then by adding the oil, it will seal in the absorbed moisture.

    You need to moisturize daily with a quality lotion or skin cream .
    Always use sunscreen when go outside
    Don't use scrubbing the skin while bathing
    and apply moisturizer after bathing.
    You will seethe difference on your skin.

    Yeah , Thats true in winter my skin also dries a lot & it becomes very rough. And this happens specially in winter. So better solution for this is to apply proper moisturizer to skin.

    You can also have massage with sesame oil. This will keep your skin a bit oily during winter.
