In brief: Winter dry skin
Any form of moisturizer is going the help, the thicker the better. If you have significant cracks in your skin, the addition of a prescription strength cortisone (like traimcinolone acetonide 0.
1% cream or ointment) will help a lot as well. Otherwise avoid getting your skin wet or soaked.
