Occlusives for Dry Skin
Ever used a moisturizer that left your skin feeling dry and taut after application? Chances are you're not using the correct moisturizer for your skin type. Most moisturizing ingredients can be classified into three groups: humectants, emollients, and occlusives. Occlusive ingredients work by providing a seal over the skin's surface to prevent hydration loss. They also help keep harmful particles from entering your skin. So, if you have dry skin, consider using a moisturizer with occlusives. It can help you lock in hydration and keep your skin from drying out.
