Someone told me that mineral oil is bad for your skin and that although it provides a temporary softness, overall it actually dries your skin out. But most lotions and moisturizing creams, as well as tons of other products, contain mineral oil. Is this true? If so, what is a better alternative to all of the many products that contain mineral oil?
I put this in IMHO because I thought this may be a matter of opinion. But if anyone has any solid facts, they would be much appreciated as well.
