I would actually go for more of a lotion than a straight oil. In my experience, even the richest oils/butters only hold in what moisture is already in your body. The lotion ADDS moisture and holds that in. My body in general has been super dry, so I made a lotion the other day that has cocoa butter and emu oil. Sounds gross, I know, but emu oil is amazing and the lotion has helped a lot. I'd say you find a nice thick lotion to use and slather it on at least a couple times a day and drink a lot of water (which you should be doing anyway!).
