I have very dry skin specially on my forehead, elbows and hands. When it comes to moisturizers, I have tried them all. The Vivoderm moisturizer is by far the best moisturizer ever! I put it on my face and other dry areas twice a day. That takes care of my problem with dry skin 99% of the time. Once in a while when the whether in New York gets super cold, I might use it once more during the day.
