I use a prescription emollient called Dermol 500 lotion. You can use it instead of shower gel or just rub it into dry skin. It is for infected eczema, but my 'eczema' (which is probably actually psoriasis) was getting infected so often, my GP now prescribes Dermol to me routinely, as a preventative. You can buy it over the counter, but it costs an absolute fortune.
I use it as my main moisturiser as it helps my acne. I'm allergic to lots of other skin creams, even E45 and other creams for skin problems, but weirdly I'm not allergic to this.
