The 4-1-1 on Moisturizers

Winter is nearly over, which means the change in seasons can leave the skin feeling dry and cracked. Adding a daily moisturizer to your skin care routine is the perfect way to combat this. Moisturizers will leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Their effects are proven to fight off skin problems like blemishes and wrinkles. There are a lot of different moisturizers out on the market. A safe rule of thumb is to look for moisturizers with glycerin, ceramides and lactic acid. You should also use different creams for different parts of the body – such as eye creams, face creams, and neck creams. All of these moisturizers are necessary because your skin has different needs for different areas.
