Face drying out

Face drying out
Hi everyone-

My face is starting to get really dried out due to my CPAP therapy. Any recommendations on some moisturizing cream? I'm currently using some Cetaphil face cream.

Thanks!

RE: Face drying out
Sorbolene cream works well on my hands and face.

Recently I have gone back to using a disposable razor for shaving, for decades I have been using electric razors.

Initially using soap or shaving cream was drying my skin, so given that the sorbolene had been working as a moisturiser for me for many years I decided to try it as a shave cream.

Now I shave after my shower instead of prior, and I rub any left over sorbolene cream in to my skin on my face rather than washing it off.
I also no longer use any kind of aftershave, the alcohol content (or whatever other base liquid they have) tends to dry my skin as well.

My CPAP nose mask has not caused my skin to dry out as yet though, but I only started on it back in April/May.
