You May Need More Than A Moisturizer
A cold, windy environment and dry air contribute to transepidermal water loss (TEWL), resulting in dull, dry, dehydrated and aged-looking skin.
Moisturizers are formulated with two types of hydrating ingredients: humectants, which attract water molecules to the skin, and emollients, which seal that moisture in by forming a protective barrier. Emollients are the key to shielding your skin from TEWL and may include shea butter, squalene and coconut, jojoba, olive, almond and soybean oils.

Severe dry skin needs more than a moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is a quenching drink of water to the skin and the top hydrating ingredient currently available. Boost your hydration with Rest-N-Restore gel, apply your moisturizer and finish with a light application of Post-Peel Balm (you can get this from your aesthetician).
Dry Skin Moisture Picks:
Oily skin does not need moisture, but they do need hydration; which is why "moisturizers" for oily skin are formulated primarily with humectants and antimicrobial ingredients to help keep the pores supple and reduce breakouts.
All skin benefits from a daily dose of Opti-Renew Complex. Vitamins A, Ester C and E nourish the skin with antioxidants to help boost regeneration and collagen synthesis, while helping to keep the skin hydrated and diminishing sun damage.
