There are so many products for skin care and it can be difficult to find the right one for you. Dr. Deborah Longwill, Dermatologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says if you have very dry skin, then you should use a cream; if you have more oily skin but you still want to hydrate, you should use lotions; and if you have a breakdown of the skin, you should use an ointment.

She also recommends using moisturizers with peptide or vitamin C added if you want to have something that can help repair some damage or environmental influences.
