Moisturize Daily: Tip of the Day 4-6-22
Keeping your skin moisturized will keep you looking more youthful longer, and help prevent several other skin concerns, according to skin experts. Even Cleopatra was said to bathe in milk for its moisturizing qualities.
Moisturizing your face helps to protect the skin’s barrier from irritation. Dehydrated skin is thinner and more sensitive, making it susceptible to damage and broken capillaries, so make sure you drink plenty of water, and moisturize daily.
Experts say widespread itching is often a sign of dry and dehydrated skin. Moisturizing your body may help to stop annoying itchiness. Fine lines are less obvious when skin is properly hydrated. Ingredients to look for in moisturizer include water, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and aloe vera.
Moisturizers are most effective when applied to slightly damp skin. Dermatologists say it’s good to put moisturizer on after you cleanse your face (and apply toner & serum if desired). Moisturizer can be applied twice a day, morning and night. Experts recommend using a moisturizer on hands and feet after every washing, before bed, and whenever you feel dry.
