Tips for Evaluating Moisturizers for Dry Skin
If you will be looking into using moisturizers for dry skin, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Read the product labels for any skin care product you might want to apply to your skin. Familiarize yourself with the various types of ingredients used in these products.
Avoid products containing known toxins, irritants, or allergens. Look for products containing a blend of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and rich plant oils.
The proper blends of vitamins and natural substances such as Shea butter and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can help repair damage done to the skin cells by free radicals and smooth out wrinkles within weeks.
Moisturizers for dry skin can vary in effectiveness. Try a small sample of the product to see if your skin reacts favorably to it, or if have an allergic reaction.
We encourage you to request free samples of any products you are considering and doing a test by applying a small amount behind your ear. Wait an hour or two to see if there is any reaction.
Visit your dermatologist before you make any changes to your skin care regimen.
Your dermatologist should be able to tell you what types of moisturizers for dry skin to avoid or that may be compatible with your skin type or condition.
She or he can also discuss with you any vitamin deficiencies you may have (e.g., vitamin B), that may have an impact on the health of your skin, and suggest vitamin supplementation.
