Slathering your face in lotion, especially in the winter is good for your skin, right? Not necessarily. Jailman says doing so can cause you to break out, or can even give you milia, tiny white spots that are formed when dead skin is trapped in the skin.
To keep your complexion clear, choose a lightweight moisturizer like Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, $14.97, walmart.com. If you're prone to acne, pick a serum over a lotion to keep your pores clean.
