I use Vaseline Intensive Rescue Clinical Therapy Skin Protectant Body Lotion. That is the actually name. And it works. Use it on my feet and elbows and my back gets real dry. I am smooth and moisturized. But when I ran high I had real itchy dry skin, getting under control really does help.

I noticed today that my face is very dried out and I have patches of flaky skin here and there, one of them being my right eye lid, I always had oily skin on my face but lately my face, hands, and feet are very dry.

I don't remember who, but someone one time told me high sugar causes dry skin. I don't know if this is the case or not, or it has to do with water intake.

My hands get REALLY dry, and the skin cracks at the joints of my fingers.

I know Eucerin makes a REALLY great foot creme, comes recommended by my podiatrist, and my Dad is currently using a body lotion from them. He broke his ankle in October and had scaling skin on his leg from the cast. He started using Eucerin's cream on his leg, and his skin improved right away! He's 75 years old, just to let you know he's no spring chicken!

The Eucerin foot cream is fantastic stuff too!!

most of my cracked skin is on my feet. for your backside i think u would do the same. just keep your skin well lotioned. make sure u rub lotion in well. hope this works.
