To take care of dry skin, there are good skin care products that can relieve dryness. NOW Foods Apricot Kernel Oil is one of them.

Dry skin happens when there is not enough moisture to keep the skin moisturized. Lack of moisture gives skin a rough texture. It tends to look dull as well. Dry skin is more prone to fine lines too. Moisture and hydration can affect skin volume and elasticity. This is why dry skin can develop fine lines and wrinkles easier than other skin types.

It reaches the deeper layers of skin to provide moisture. This is how the oil aids in fading the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
