How Proper Moisturizing Protects Your Skin

How Proper Moisturizing Protects Your Skin

Has the weather made your skin dry? Are you fighting the signs of aging? Do you want healthy looking skin? Hydrate your face and reap the rewards. Here’s how proper moisturizing protects your skin:

The Benefits of Moisturizer

  • Offers protection from the sun (don’t forget your SPF)
  • Reduces dry, flaking skin and redness
  • Soothes skin irritations and acne
  • Fights pollutants that break down skin’s appearance
  • Prevents fine lines and wrinkles
  • Provides elasticity to skin and a supple look
  • Deters skin discoloration and dullness

Skin Protection Basics

Moisturizing techniques are different for various skin types, but several rules apply to all faces:

Nightime Routine

Before bed, remove all makeup and wash your face thoroughly. This will help to eliminate particles of pollution, bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin. If you don’t remove them, they can cause premature aging of your face.

Gently dry your face. Apply topical medications, anti-aging serums, and eye creams. The skin on your eyelids and under your eyes is thinner than on other parts of your body. This makes it less able to retain moisture. Which is why, eye cream is essential for ageless looking skin.

Products with Hyaluronic Acid in them will help lock in the moisture. Utilize a thick and creamy lotion as your final layer to lock in moisture. Allow nighttime creams and moisturizers time to soak in before going to bed.

Morning Routine

Wash your face in the morning to refresh for the day. Use a lotion with SP. This is the most important part of your morning routine. SPF30 or higher is recommended. This will help fight skin cancer and the signs of aging.

Choose a moisturizer that is vitamin rich to help your skin deal with environmental stressors. Your daytime moisturizer should be lightweight so that it soaks in quickly for on-the-go application.

Moisturizing for Your Skin Type

Use your skin type as a guide to maximize your moisturizing results.

Youthful Skin

Always protect your skin from the sun with SPF. Follow the skin protection basics from above. Choose a daily lotion that is geared towards your type of skin: oily, dry, combination, or sensitive. Provide your eyes with some extra moisturizer to delay the signs of aging.

Dry Skin

Use a cleanser that has a creamy, lotion, or a milk texture. Then, use a lotion that is good for dry skin. Read labels and look for hydrating compounds such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or moisturizing oil. You do not want a product that contains sulfates as this will make dry skin even drier.

Oily Skin

Wash your face in the morning and before going to bed; don’t over wash! Washing your face more than three times a day has been shown to make skin irritations including acne worse.

Use a cleanser with pore-cleaning properties such as charcoal, clay, or exfoliating alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Use a skin lotion that is formulated for oily skin. The right moisturizer will not increase the oiliness of your skin, it will hydrate and help your skin produce less oil.

Aging Skin

Do not scrub your face. Apply lotion in the morning, night, and after taking a shower. Using lotion after taking a shower is important because it locks in moisture. Utilize innovative skincare solutions that address key skincare concerns, including signs of aging, discoloration, elasticity, and firmness.

Show your eyes some extra love and give them the moisture they’ve been craving with a rejuvenating cream that contains Hyaluronic Acid and caffeine.

We recommend NEOCUTIS, one of the world’s most trusted skincare brands. Their products are based on cutting-edge scientific research and are individualized according to specific needs.

This brand is the gold standard for lotions that minimize signs of aging, discoloration, oxidative stress, redness, and dryness.

Hydration for Your Skin 

Staying well hydrated keeps you healthy. Simply drinking enough fluids helps to control weight, balance your moods, improve sleep, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, keep joints and muscles lubricated reducing inflammation, and slows the aging process.
One of the most noticeable benefits of drinking enough liquids is the impact it has on your skin. It flushes the toxins away, helps maintain elasticity, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and improves oily skin and acne. Drinking water is a great way to hydrate your skin from the inside out!
