I would suggest going to a department store and getting some one-on-one advice if you are really having a problem with dry skin. I personally have used Estee Lauder products for 25 yrs. I am 56 yrs. old and everyone tells me I have beautiful skin, but I have worked hard to keep it that way. It's important to keep your face moisturized day and night! If you are wanting to go a less expensive route, check out Aveeno or Oil of Olay. They have regimens for young, middle-age, and mature skin. Whatever you do--remove all makeup every night and moisturize!!
