I actually slather on the same barrier cream that usually goes on my daughter when she wears a nappy, and it really helps. I think it came from Boots, although I don't know its specifics. Have you tried plain aqueous cream?
Have a real bad problem with my hands drying up, cracking and thus bleeding every bloody winter but nothing seems to help it.
I also wear moisturiser cream on my face most days because I get really dry skin. It's seriously bad at times; it goes really flakey and looks awful. I actually find vaseline is one of the best things to counter it, but that has the opposite effect and makes my skin really greasy so I have to use it very frugally.
