I get it every winter, all round my mouth and on my chin, it looks right mess and is getting on my nerves now.

The cream i used last year doesn't seem to be doing anything this year, anyone know of any other good ones.

Aveeno (I would recommend from anything from dry skin to leprosy)

Elizabeth Ardens 8 hour cream - I bought some after reading about it on MN and it really is fantastic.

Omega 3 fish oil capsules. I started taking 2 a day about a month ago and my dry skin has really improved, feels much softer and smoother.

Happymum - I'm allergic to vaseline!

There are some face masks that you can leave on overnight and the moisturiser sinks into your skin all ready for the morning..I have a gel based one so it doesnt make the pillows sticky.

Happymum - I was surprised as I didn't think there was much in it really! I kept persevering, thinking it must be something else, but I ended up looking like a leper with a big swollen weeping face, very attractive. DH kindly and sensitively said to me "you're very brave going out like that ".
