9 Mistakes That Are Drying Out Your Skin
Is a dehydrated complexion one of your cold-weather bugaboos? Your skincare routine might actually be making the problem worse.
You believe any moisturizer labeled "Natural" or "Organic" must be good for your skin.
The reality: People can develop allergies to essential oils like chamomile, lavender, and tea tree, says Graber. If that's the case, these ingredients can worsen redness, flakiness, and dryness. If you love oils, look for a product containing jojoba or olive oil—both hydrate while rarely causing irritation.
