MOISTURIZER [moisCHəˌrīzər]

What it is: A preparation (such as a lotion or cream) applied to the skin to prevent or relieve dryness.
How to use it: Used in nail services to help treat dry skin and prevent it from drying out again. Moisturizers do this by holding water in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin. (Lanolin, the conditioning secretion from sheep’s skin found in their wool, is an ingredient used in many skin and hair care products used for its moisturizing ability.)
