We all know that we should be moisturizing, but how many of us do it religiously every day, twice a day? And why do we NEED to do it all the time? Keeping your skin soft and supple with a good quality moisturizer is essential to look younger and maintain your complexion.
Dry skin is wrinkly skin. Let’s face it, when your face is not moisturized the appearance of wrinkles is much more obvious. With a good quality moisturizer, you can keep many signs of aging at bay, including wrinkles. When your skin is freshly cleansed, toned, and moisturized, it has a much more even tone than if it has not been cared for. Many moisturizers also have a slight tone to them that helps to even out blemishes and wrinkles and smooth your appearance.
If you live in a cold dry climate you will know exactly what I am talking about. A hot shower is great for many reasons, but it does strip the moisture out of your skin. After you have toweled off, replacing the moisture in your face is essential. A good quality face cream will keep your skin supple and smooth, without being greasy.
Your face, neck, and ear area replace its skin cells more often than other areas of your body. In order to keep them looking young and to make the best of this process, you need to moisturize at least twice a day. Once in the morning after cleansing, and once at night also after cleansing. When you are getting ready for the day, it is best to cleanse, tone, and use a good day cream. Day creams will sometimes have a toner to them, and more often than not will have an SPF factor. Night creams should be used before bed. These are heavier than a day cream in order to rejuvenate your skin while you sleep.
Moisturised skin is healthier than dry skin. It’s also much more comfortable. There is nothing worse than having tight dry skin, especially on your face. As mentioned, dry skin will also show wrinkles and other signs of aging much more than moisturized skin. As we age our skin produces less and less collagen and other important things. Face creams contain these and help to boost your body’s natural stores, resulting in younger, healthier skin.
Red-faced is not something that we really ever want to be. Whether it’s caught out, or simply having a red shiny complexion. There are many, many things that can cause a red face though, not counting embarrassment. The most common ones are of course sun damage or acne, but what about some less common reasons? […]
