There are seven fundamental types of catastrophes. Beauty is not one of them.
Dry skin often gets a bad rap. There are some positives to having dry skin. Pores are less visible and you rarely ever suffer from chronic blemishes. The downside? If you slack on moisturizing, lines and wrinkles surface quickly and overall your skin will appear flat, dull and aged.

Nighttime Tip: Here’s when you’ll want to kick it up with a super-rich cream loaded with antioxidants. You’d be surprised what a difference maintaining hydrated skin makes in your appearance. Hydrated skin looks plump, vibrant and fresh, not to mention, younger! If your home is really dry, use a humidifier during colder months. Also, always apply a rich eye cream since the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else on your face or body. Be sure to include a lip balm at night, as well.
