    Olive oil is also great when it comes to moisturizing the dermis.

    In the world of credit crunch beauty, a natural
    dry skin treatment is exactly what you need.

    Dry skin results from lack sebum or oil production.

    Great infographic, Dr. Phillips. It’s good to know that you don’t have to pay a fortune for a good, rich moisturizer.

    But anyway one has to buy some sort of moisturizer in particularly dry seasons. But which one? I’ve dug up a list of a few moisturizer ingredients that may be helpful for dry skin:

    Ceramides
    Dimethicone
    Glycerin
    Lanolin
    Mineral oil
    Petroleum jelly

    All of these basically help skin hold on to water absorbed, and the cream/lotion that has the largest combination of them is obviously the best. But what I didn’t find out that if any of these have side effects or if they are compatible with each other. Maybe you’ll be able to help there, doctor?

    Hope this helps when people choose what moisturizer to buy!
