Glow: Lotion

Treat Your Skin

The very definition of a dry skin type is that it produces very little oil, so using moisturizer to help balance your skin's natural dryness is essential. You should use a moisturizer that is intended for a dry skin type, usually a thicker cream instead of a lotion. Moisturizers or serums that contain hyaluronic acid, a humectant ingredient that helps skin retain moisturizer, can also be helpful. On dry skin types moisturizer should be applied all over the face, including the neck and décolletage.
