Top 10 Tips for Moisturizing Dry Skin

Taking Care of the Eyes, Neck and Décolleté

Although many women use a daily moisturizer on their face, arms and hands, they often neglect the regions that need it most, namely, the skin around the eyes, neck and décolleté (cleavage and bust). The skin in these areas is thinner and more sensitive than most other parts of the body, and because these are little to no sebaceous glands in these areas, they tend to dry out easily and need to be moisturized just as much as -- if not more than -- the rest of your person. In fact, besides preventing dry skin, applying a daily skin moisturizing product to the area around the eyes, neck and décolleté will help prevent wrinkles, discolored skin and other signs of aging [source: HealthWatch].
