Cerave Healing Ointment was recommended by a YouTube blogger who also happens to be a dermatologist. Her channel is Dr Dray (A Day in the Life of a Dermatologist) and believe it or not, she vlogs every day!
I use this ointment primarily on my dry hands and it gives more relief than any department or drug store product I have ever used. It is also great for dry feet, used with socks at bedtime.
This ointment comes in a few sizes, from small lip balm size to a large jar. The smaller size is great to slip into your handbag.
