Thank you. I am sorry to hear about your dry skin problem. Yes dry skin is more common after menopause. It is important to moisturise on a regular basis (e.g. with oilatum cream, epaderm cream, doublebase, cetrabene, aveno cream, aproderm cream) and also avoid soaps, shower gels, bubble baths and instaed wash with moisturises e.g. cetrabene cream or oilatum wash.

I hope this is helpful.
