What’s the right way to use moisturizer?

For those of us who suffer from dry skin, there’s always that feeling of playing catch-up. How can you stay ahead of hand washing, chores that abuse the skin, dry air, and instead prevent that fragile, dry, cracked skin?

Proper use of moisturizers is a key component of successful dry skin care.

Find a moisturizer that is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. A thicker moisturizing cream will be more effective than a watery lotion at sealing in moisture.

Moisturize immediately after washing your hands or chores involving water. Otherwise, the evaporation of that water on your skin can lad to more dryness.

If you’re at home or sleeping, you can wear a glove over your moisturized hands as well.
