Why should I use moisturizer (a.k.a. lotion for my face)?
1. Moisturizing Reduces Skin Problems
Using the right moisturizer for your skin can help maintain its balance. When skin is too dry or too oily, your skin will over- or under-compensate. Improperly moisturized skin causes common skin problems like acne starts to pop up.
2. Moisturizing Reduces the Appearance of Other Blemishes
Freshly moisturized skin looks healthy without any dullness or dry patches. This evens out any existing blemishes.
3. Moisturizing Helps Your Skin Look (and Stay) Young
The most sensitive areas of your skin - the face, ears, neck and chest, replace themselves more often than any other area on your skin. This daily turnover of skin cells makes these areas more vulnerable to dryness and the elements. In fact, they are the highest-risk areas for skin cancer. Moisturizers also help sensitive skin repair itself and stay healthy.
4. Moisturizing Fights Wrinkles
People with moisturized skin get wrinkles at a fraction of the rate than those with dry skin. A dry piece of paper can be easily crumpled while a wet piece of paper just stays flat. Same concept.
5. It's the Perfect End to a Hot Shower
Hot showers feel great, but it strips the moisture right out of your skin. Don't forget to put on some moisturizer to not only make your skin feel great but also protect it from the elements.
