All Moisturizers Help With Dry Skin

Here's some good news this winter: despite the long lists of obscure ingredients, all moisturizers help with dry skin because they supply a little bit of water to the skin and contain a greasy substance that holds it in. Almost every moisturizer on the market, pricey or not, will help with dry skin, and in most cases, the choice comes down to whether you like the feel and smell. Good to know when you're standing there looking at the shelf full of lotions at the drugstore, right?

Yes, but some are certainly more effective than others! As a long-time sufferer of dry skin and mild eczema, I think I've tried just about everything out there and I know which ones give me long-term relief and which are more of a short fix.

leahlarocco, I agree. I like Aveeno since it real does last all day.

Yes, but in the long run, ingredients such as mineral oil have a negative effect on the skin and actually end up drying it out more. It's good to do some research on ingredients. Safflower oil is also really effective at adding moisture.
