You’re Moisturizing Your Face All Wrong — Here’s Why

You know the feeling: dull, tight skin. It usually shows up the morning after a late night, but it can really strike at any time. And, while we tend to call it "dry skin," that's really not what it is. It's dehydrated, and it can attack any skin type (dry, normal, even oily) due to a few common mistakes.
To figure out what exactly is going wrong (and how to make it right), we talked to Manhattan Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery’s Dr. Monica Schadlow and aesthetician Andrea DeSimone. Their expert intel revealed the habits that can deplete skin’s moisture, the foods that can help restore it, and the secret weapons that can work wonders (like Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask — a multitasker's dream).
