We all know that moisturizing is part of beauty routine but many people are guilty of skipping this step. Most people would think that moisturizers will only add extra moisture and can be omitted if you have an oily skin or if the weather is not too hot. Little did they know that moisturizers are pack with many benefits and not solely to eliminate dry skin. Below are some of the benefits you can get if by religiously moisturizing your face.
Reduces The Appearance Of Wrinkles
By eliminating moisturizer in your beauty regimen, it leaves the skin dry and dull. The skin develops a low-grade inflammation when left too dry which further leads to the breakdown of collagen and accelerated aging. Using a moisturizer on a daily basis will lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines brought about by skin aging.
Address Some Skin Problems
We have this belief that pimples and acne are caused by too much moisture. But did you know that moisturizer is your best friend when you have skin imperfections like acne? It’s not advisable to skip moisturizing if you have zits as it will just make the skin condition worse. What’s smart to do is to look for oil free, fragrance-free and noncomedogenic moisturizer which is perfect for oily skin and won’t aggravate your acne.
Acts As A Good Makeup Base
When the skin is too dry, makeup won’t stick to it even if you use top of the line cosmetic products. Applying a thin layer of moisturizer will help set your makeup to achieve a flawless and even looking skin.
Keeps The Skin Hydrated
During the cold season, dry air causes dehydration of the skin and strips off lipids. Lipids act as a protective covering and without it, it gives the irritants easy access to the skin which makes it appear red and flaky.
