Sorry to hear of the chemo - a better cream to help restore dry skin will be one with ceramides/lipids - these replenish the missing parts of the skin that causes the dryness, more effective than plain moisturizing which protects the skin barrier from excessive loss of moisture.

Wishing you a good hols!
