Skincare Basics: The Importance of Moisturizer
You hear it a lot: moisturizing is important for your skin – yet many people skip the hydration step and go on with their day, throwing on the makeup and hoping for the best. Moisturizing is one of the most important things you can do for your skin, and here are a few facts from the pros that will help you see why you should add it back to your routine.
It treats dry skin. The most obvious benefit is helping dry, flaky skin feel smooth and soft. This is healthy for your skin and helps makeup look even.
It helps all skin types. Even people with oily skin need moisture. You may think that your skin has enough moisture with all the excess oil, but your skin needs hydration. In fact, your face may be producing excess oil because it’s not hydrated and is trying to compensate. Also, many people with oily skin wash frequently or use products that over-strip, hoping to eliminate oil. However, this leads to drying, which can also cause your skin to overproduce oil. Keeping your skin hydrated is the best solution. Just use a moisturizer specially formulated for oily skin.
It’s a protective layer. Every day, your face is exposed to sun, wind, and other environmental factors. Moisturizer acts as a barrier, protecting your skin cells from damage caused by the elements.
It helps hide imperfections. Well-moisturized skin is glowing and healthy looking, and this effect can even out your skin and make blemishes and other imperfections less noticeable.
It helps keep skin problems under control. Moisturized skin is also balanced skin. When skin is too oily or too dry, problems like acne can surface. Keep your skin hydrated and balanced to keep it healthy.
It helps fight aging. Compared with dry skin, healthy, moisturized skin can reduce the number of wrinkles that develop. Plump, moisturized skin fills in the gaps that might otherwise be wrinkling. Remember to choose a moisturizer that also contains sunscreen to prevent premature aging caused by sun damage.
It protects against heat. Whenever your skin is exposed to heat, whether from the sun, a hot shower, or other sources, that heat can pull out moisture in your skin. That’s why it’s important to moisturize after showering or sun exposure, to keep your skin hydrated.
