Dermatologist Recommended Moisturizing Lotions

Dermatologists specialize in caring for the skin, so it makes sense to consider the products they recommend for skin care. Moisturizing lotions may contain humectants to help draw moisture to the skin and emollients for soothing. There are a variety of moisturizing lotions available designed for use on the body, face, hands and feet.

The University of Kansas Medical Center Department of Dermatology recommends Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for face and body moisturizing for people with sensitive skin. Dermatologist Arielle Kauvar, M.D., recommends Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream to prevent chapping to individuals who must frequently wash their hands. Cetaphil products are often recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians.


Dermatologist Jessica J. Krant, M.D., recommends Lubriderm moisturizers, as do a number of other dermatologists. Lubriderm, a line of moisturizing products for skin that ranges from normal to extremely dry, was developed by dermatologists working for Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products Company.
