In brief: Try these

Generally you can try treating dry skin on your own with an over-the-counter product.
Usually ointments are better than creams which are better than lotions for dry skin. Ointments can be a bit sticky though so many choose creams. Look for a non-perfumed product that limits additives. Apply right after you shower while skin is still damp, and a few other times a day too.
