Every day our bodies are under attack. Whether it’s the food we eat, where we live, or the activities that engage in every day, our bodies must overcome this to remain healthy. When it comes to our body’s largest organ, our skin, if neglected will prematurely age.
To protect your skin there are many products on the market that promise many types of results. The confusion of what products are best actually restricts many people from developing a proper skincare routine including do you use a daily skin moisturizer.
As in any routine, you must start with the basics. The basics are the building blocks for the entire routine. When it comes to a skincare routine a staple is a proper skin moisturizer. With the thousands of different moisturizers on the market, choosing one can be a challenge, but when you know what the moisturizer’s purpose is, why it is so important and what works best with your skin type, the choice becomes much easier.
First, let’s look at what a moisturizer does for your skin:
Repair – As our outer shell, our skin is confronted with many items that will take the moisture out of our skin. Pollution, diet, climate control and even the amount of stress that you have in your life all are factors in dehydrating your skin. Our skin needs help and this is the first task a moisturizer will function as, replenishing lost nutrients.
Protection – Again as our outer shells our skin comes in contact with everything, the sun being one of the most damaging things our skin comes in contact with every day. For that moisturizer also provide protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The SPF protection offered by a moisturizer is not something that should just be used in the summer, but every day regardless of the season.
Circulation – This is something that not everyone is aware of. Applying a daily moisturizer actually helps to stimulate the skin, improving blood circulation and thus improving collagen levels. Depletion of collagen is what actually causes wrinkles and sagging skin. Keeping the collagen levels at their optimum levels thus stops the wrinkles before they start.
Primer – Having well-moisturized skin allows you to use less make-up. Properly moisturized skin allows make-up to stick better thus using less.
Having the right moisturizer is a critical part of any skincare routine. Starting with your skin type match a moisturizer that works with your skin type. For those that have oily skin, applying a moisturizer is still recommended.
A product that continues to receive much attention and great customer reviews is the Skindulgence Moisturizer. Effective on all skin types, this is the same moisturizer found in the Skindulgence Firming Facial System. The small and compact bottle allows it to be easily transported. Start hydrating your skin to repair, protect and keep it looking it’s very best.
