No: Depending on what you are using it may actually make things worse. Most people overmoisturize their skin with expensive creams. The things that work are retinols, antioxidants, sun protection and melanocyte supression complemented by hydroxy acid washes and light peels.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
