I’ve tried so many lotions, creams, ointments, masks, etc., throughout the years, so I like to think I’m pretty well-versed in what works for me and what doesn’t. And for the times when I don’t turn to my prescription steroid creams and ointments for my eczema, I have a few over-the-counter favorites. But for more information about using ointments to heal dry skin, I turned to dermatologist Heather Rogers, MD, founder and CEO of Doctor Rogers Restore and co-founder of Modern Dermatology in Seattle, for some tips.

“When skin is dry, the barrier is not intact, making the skin less able to keep chemicals out and hydration/water in,” Rogers explains. “For your skin to heal, the water level must be maintained. This is why greasy ointments are so helpful. They provide a protective layer over the healing skin to keep the water in your skin from evaporating.”
