I noticed the same thing. I do have dry skin normally in the winter so I have been making certain that I keep up with Water. Maybe someone will share a brand of lotion that makes a difference with dryness.

I drink 3-4 bottles of Water and protein2o daily, ( that's 60oz minimum daily-80oz daily) - my dr and my NUT both said I'm hitting my goals. I do moisturize after my showers, too. It's really bizarre. Maybe it's the weather or something, but the dryness is very unusual for me. I kind of wonder if it's like skin starting to sag.

Hi, I had my sleeve 20 days ago and have excessive skin dryness. All over my body, including legs, arms, hands, chest, face. Lotion and aquaphor do not help. Just seems to get worse. Does anyone else have this after a sleeve?

Oh yes I have experienced very dry skin after vsg surgery. I am 3 weeks post op. I have to apply lotion more often than before.

Thank you!!! I'm on day 25 post sleeve and this dryness is driving me crazy. I feel I am the only one struggling with this. Have you found any lotion that works?

You're so welcome! 👍🏾😊..I use Creamy Cocoa Butter by Assured. The most interesting thing is it's from Dollar Tree and it works so great for my skin.

My skin has been really dry too. I'm not reaching my Water goals so that probably has something to do with it. Its so hard to drink all the water because it takes so long to eat and then Im so full. I sip throughout the day but find myself drink only 30-40 oz of water a day. Maybe I''l just try to drink 8 oz of water at once on a schedule instead of sipping throughout the day.

Anyway, I'm going to try this lotion too. Thanks!

I am applying lotion all the time. It is awful. The worst is my back where i can't reach to put lotion. It itches something terrible.

I totally agree with you about the water! It is so difficult to get in 64oz plus all your Protein and food. Sometimes I drink water in the middle of the night when I wake up to go to the bathroom. I drink about 40 to 50oz per day I believe. Our stomachs are so small now that it is nearly impossible.

It also takes me about 1 to 2 hours to eat a meal but I wouldn't trade this new way of living in for nothing lol. It's definitely a change. And you are so welcome about the lotion. I hope it works for you 😊

Me too! My hands are the worst. I apply lotion at least 2 times through out the day.
