What Ingredients Should I Avoid If Have Dry Skin?

If you have dry skin you need to avoid any ingredients that absorb oil or moisture and that could potentially dry out your skin further. Alcohol is one of the most astringent ingredients used in skin care and is something to definitely avoid if you have dry skin.

Other ingredients to avoid include Salicylic Acid, AHAs, Willow Bark Extract and natural clays like Kaolin, as these limit sebum production and are therefore more appropriate for oilier skin types.
