I have always had dry skin and put lotion on every morning, but after I developed t1d the lotions I was using didn’t cut it anymore. So far the only thing that has lasted all day and stood up to the heat and humidity has been the Goldbond. It really does put a barrier on the skin. I don’t know if it would be helpful to you, but it is something that it won’t hurt you to try. If high blood sugars have left your skin upset it could help. I swear by the Goldbond, but the cold is really doing me in this year. However, I have never fared well in the cold; thankfully we haven’t gotten snow. I hope that helps!
