The importance of keeping your skin moisturised
Moisturizing is a vitally important part of any skincare routine, as it helps to keep skin nourished and ensures a healthy complexion. Whether you religiously moisturize your face every day, or need motivation to do so, understanding just why it’s so important can be really helpful, which is why we want to answer some of the most frequently asked moisturizing questions.
Read on for all of the moisturizing tips and facts that you could possibly need to make this an integral part of your beauty routine.
Why is moisturizing important?
Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? It’s for this reason that taking good care of it, as we would with our kidneys, liver, and other vital organs, is very important. This is where moisturizing comes in, as this simple act can help to maintain a great complexion, and ensure that your skin boasts a smooth and healthy texture too.
When should I moisturize?
Ideally, you should moisturize your face twice a day - once in the morning when you wake up, and once at night before you go to bed. You should only ever moisturize your face when it’s been fully cleansed, as this means that it is clear of impurities. One of our top tips is to moisturize after a shower, as hot water strips moisture and oil from your skin and can leave it feeling dry and tight. Hot water may feel very relaxing on your skin during your shower, but you will need to follow it up with moisturizer to bring your skin’s gorgeous glow and vital hydration back.
Will moisturizing make me look younger?
The million dollar question, can you find eternal youth through moisturizing? Those who moisturize regularly will find that their sensitive face, neck, chest and ear areas are boosted and repaired thanks to the use of moisturizer, giving their skin a fresh, youthful look. It is especially important that you moisturize throughout the year, as changes in weather conditions are often really drying on the skin which can give it the appearance of being dull, and even cracked. Add in the fact that skin cells from these delicate areas shed more rapidly than anywhere else on your body, and you can begin to understand why keeping them moisturized is so vital in maintaining a young complexion.
Can moisturizing combat skin imperfections?
If you suffer from skin imperfections, such as acne or dry areas, you’ll be delighted to hear that moisturizing can reduce these due to the fact that dry skin and extreme oiliness are some of the main causes. In addition to this, the healthy shine that moisturizing gives to your face can help to even out your skin, creating the illusion of a smoother complexion. Should you be trying to combat a specific skin imperfection, ensure that you look for the right kind of moisturizer, especially when it comes to oil content and natural ingredients.
