Was asking vaginal, but now that you mention it skin dryness tips'd be nice too.

vaginal - ky jelly. I haven't had this probably but I did buy some prior to my delivery for this<br><br>
skin- i asked because my skin has been ridiculously dry since I delivered. I already have boderline ezcema so matters are worse now. I'm using alpha-hydroxy Eucerin then I layer on Vaseline. I'm one of those people that soak up baby oil with no problem.

'Oh My' is the kind of lube we use. It's pretty natural, smells/tastes mild ( a little sweet) and has hemp oil in it to act sort of antibacterial. Say, if you get yeasties from the glycerin in most lube it's supposed to help with that. I just think the ingredients are great and it's pretty useful. It's hard to find and expensive, though.

I use pure extra virgin (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">) organic coconut oil the really good stuff. I use it on my skin too. It's fantastic stuff.

I use this stuff for everything. My favorite use is hair gel. I never thought of it for this, though.

My skin is soaking up everything within in an hour. Aloe vera, olive oil, baby oil. It was bad before pregnancy but it's worst now.

Organic grapeseed oil. Works wonders<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:, but not if you're using condoms for BC reasons.<br><br>
On my skin, Burt's Bees Honey and Milk lotion.

Huh -- I'd been thinking that my skin seemed ridiculously dry. Anyone knows if all the dryness will pass, or if it's likely here to stay?<br><br>
