Does Anyone Else Feel Like Keeping Your Skin Ultra Moisturized Causes Tge Itchy Bubbles?

Does Anyone Else Feel Like Keeping Your Skin Ultra Moisturized Causes Tge Itchy Bubbles?

It's like a catch-22...moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Then the itchy bubbles appear. Use medication, dry, scaly skin that cracks. So, back to moisturizing, and the cycle starts again. Anyone having better luck? If you are, how?

I have the same problem with all moisturizing creams. What helps for me is to use oils instead like olive oil, jojaba oil, and/or CBD oil. Lately, I have been mixing jojaba oil with about an equal amount of colloidal oatmeal and putting it in a small container in the refrigerator. It hardens in the refrigerator. I break off a piece when my skin is itchy and rub it on my skin which relieves the itching because it is grainy and cool on my skin. Afterwards my skin feels softer and not as scaly. I alternate that with adding CBD oil to help with the dryness. When I cook with olive oil, I rub a little on my skin while I have it out. I rarely get the itchy bubbles anymore which I used to pop with a straight pin to keep from scratching all my skin off.

try rubbing in the cream slower, with kindness and love. My skin gets dry after 5 minutes of moisturising,
