Prevention Magazine’s Go-To List of Skin Moisturizers

In January’s issue of Prevention they have a great skin care feature. Their editors have sorted through creams, lotions and serums to come up with a list of great options for whatever your skin care needs are.

Read on to see the list!

Intensive Care for Dry Skin
• If your skin is tight, rough, and flaky
• Stick with balms or creams; most lotions aren’t hydrating for dry skin.
(Note: They listed a few serums, so I’m including them here, but you should know that typically a serum is not very hydrating. I haven’t tried either of these options to know if they are or are not hydrating.)
