Curing the Dry Skin Blues
Switch to Heavier Creams
Changing from lighter gels and lotions to heavier creams and ointments will provide the necessary moisture to effectively hydrate your skin. “Look for products with lactic acid, shea butter and lanolin,” says Chapas. “These tend to seal water in the skin and prevent the skin from drying.” She suggests CeraVe cream ($15, drugstores.com) or DML Forte cream ($13, dermstore.com) for normal and dry skin.
