Gentle Moisturizers and Serums to use on the Face and Neck
A good facial moisturizer should sink into the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and dewy. In other words, it should not be heavy or tacky. Very heavy creams and pure butters, tend to sit on the surface of the skin, forming an occlusive protective layer, but preventing the skin from breathing and pulling the skin down with gravity. Such items are better used for hands, legs and feet, which are subjected to greater environmental stresses, and where thicker and tighter skin can tolerate the added weight.
If you are plagued with dry skin, look first to your diet: are you getting enough vitamin D and Omega 3 fatty acids? Are you drinking enough water (at least 1/2 ounce per pound of body weight, but preferably twice that!)
