Why You Should Moisturize Daily

Moisturizing is such a major part of your skin care routine, if you’re not already moisturizing daily, you’re going to find out why you should moisturize daily.  This time of year we all tend to experience a lot more dryness when it comes to our skin, hair and even nails.  But when we let that moisturizing step be skipped over we can experience some skin problems down the line.  If you are moisturizing on a daily basis, you may be wondering why you’re actually supposed to – but kudos to moisturizing anyways!  Without any more chatter, we’re just going to get right into why you should moisturize daily to give you all the details.

Helps With Your Makeup Application
If you’ve ever tried to apply makeup to dry skin you get what we’re saying here.  We all want to be able to apply our makeup in a way where it just seems to glide on over our skin, but if our skin is dry and lacking moisture it’s not able to do that.  This is why so many makeup artists actually apply moisturizer to their clients’ skin before applying makeup – it really helps to create a barrier in a sense where your makeup just goes on so much smoother and easier.

Helps With Wrinkles
Have you ever noticed the people that tend to look older and have more wrinkles also tend to look like their skin is lacking moisture?  Well, that’s because often times it is!  When we moisturize daily it actually helps to prevent wrinkles and give your skin that nice plump appearance because it’s well moisturized and hydrated.  If you go without moisturizing on a daily basis, it’s actually been found that you can develop more wrinkles and even make the wrinkles you have be more pronounced.  Yikes, right?

Get That Glow
Moisturizing your skin isn’t just about the wrinkles though, it’s also incredibly helpful, even crucial, to really give your skin that added glow.  When you skip moisturizing on a daily basis, you’ll likely notice your skin begins to look more dull and even flaky.  This is because adding moisture to the skin gives your skin the nourishment and hydration it needs to glow and avoid that dry flakiness that can arise without it.

Aids With Acne
Many people are afraid to apply moisturizer when they’re prone to acne or suffering from acne breakouts, but in fact moisturizing has been found to help soothe acne.  This is because if your skin becomes too dry without the moisturizer you can cause even more irritation to the skin, making the acne even worse.  Of course, if you are prone to acne or dealing with acne problems as it is you’re going to want to be sure that you’re sticking to a moisturizer that’s good for sensitive skins and non-comedogenic.

And of course, if you’re not applying moisturizer to your face daily you will begin to notice that your skin becomes super dry and even may become itchy.  Not too fun, right?
