I have heard about calendula, borage., kukui nut & apricot oils. Suggestions?

Ive tried coconut oil, grapeseed, & vaseline (yuck!

Worse place is my shins followed by thighs, butt / hip, head, upper back/ neck, behind my ears & above my eyebrows!
Have you tried witch hazel? It's relatively inexpensive, easy to find and does not burn. I had some awful dry hot spots appear on my hands right around Christmas and tried pure shea butter (I use as my "lotion") as well as the ones you tried with no luck. Then I heard witch hazel helps with dry skin, something about restoring the oils so it's best to apply after a shower. Seriously, within three days, the redness is gone and the flakes are less. Oh, and as a bonus, it works as a toner and puffy eye reducer. I am a convert!
