This Is The Moisturizer Hospitals Hand Out Instead Of Aquaphor

April 11, 2016 by Jeanine Edwards

After spending a week in the Dominican Republic, my skin was in pretty bad shape. Dry didn’t even begin to explain how bad it looked and felt. I tried every lotion and body oil I had in my bathroom, but nothing–literally, nothing–seemed to hydrate my skin for longer than a few minutes.

After complaining to a friend who works in a hospital, she let me in on a little secret: Hydrophor. This is the good stuff! It’s actually what hospitals hand out to patients suffering with severe dry skin caused by various illnesses or medical treatments. It’s also just what my seriously parched skin needed after a few too many days in the sun.

Now be forewarned, this stuff is thick. It’s a very similar consistency to Vaseline, but if you’re looking for loads of moisture, this is what you should be using. And you’ll be happy to know it dries pretty quickly and doesn’t leave any sticky or greasy residue.

If you have dry skin anywhere, you need this stuff in your medicine cabinet!
