Skin Care Essential: Is it important to moisturize daily?

BlogBeauty Student Advice, Beauty Tips, How To's | August 5, 2011

So many people do not realize the importance of moisturizing your skin daily.  Your skin, especially your face, goes through a lot of abuse through out the day. Plus, as we start to age, our skin tends to become drier. Moisturizing your face should be an essential part of your daily routine.

So what does a moisturizer do for your skin?

  • Repair– they are so many factors that will take the moisture out of your skin. Pollution, poor diets, cold weather, dry furnaces and stressful lifestyles can all dehydrate the skin, that is why we need to give our skin some added help. While these elements are draining moisture away, the only method to hydrate and provide a bit of nourishment back in is by applying a moisturizer every day.
  • Protect- Moisturizers also help to protect your skin from sun damage. Moisturizers with SPF/sunscreen are available which can help protect your skin from the harsh damaging UV rays. This is something you should use all year long not just during the summer season; during the winters month’s the sun’s rays can be just as damaging.
  • Circulate– applying moisturizer stimulates the skin improving the circulation of blood to the body helping to boost collagen levels. The depletion of collagen increases the amount of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin on the body.
  • Primer- using a good moisturizer before apply your makeup will serve as a good primer.  This will help give your makeup a good base to stick to.

moisturize your skin

There are a lot of moisturizers out there and it may be overwhelming, but just as important it is to moisturize your skin daily it is also important that you choose the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.  So before choosing your moisturizer figure out what type of skin you have – normal, oily, dry, combination, or sensitive.

    Indeed moisturizers are good for skin. But nothing much can be done with these skin creams when your skin age with your age. I have came across many people that want a cosmetic surgery for skin enhancement. For me, a surgery is too much. I would prefer non surgical treatments such as facial fillers or aesthetic lasers to hide fine lines and wrinkles caused from aging. I do not dare to risk my body under knife.

    I also think moisturizing your face should be an essential part of your daily routine. Specially when you are going or coming from outdoors. Moisturizing your face will give you a fresh feel.
