Aveeno Baby Dermexa Goodnight Emollient Balm ($10), as it turns out, isn't just for babies. The balm contains ceramides and Aveeno's triple oat complex (which is made up of avenanthramides, oat oil and, colloidal oatmeal).

"This combination of ingredients has been proven to strengthen the skin's natural skin barrier function, lower excessive water loss from the skin, and thus successfully improve dry and irritated skin," said Stefanie Williams, dermatologist and medical director of Eudelo Dermatology, and spokesperson for Aveeno.

As the balm is slightly thicker in consistency to a regular cream, Dr. Williams recommends you use it before you hop into bed since it will last all through the night without repeat application. If you have a baby or child suffering from eczema, she says that it also provides a layer of protection lasting through bedtime, reducing irritation and assisting in restful sleep.
