The Power of Moisturizer
You can literally take years off your face with a mild cleanser and a good moisturizer. When your skin is dry, it accentuates wrinkles and fine lines. You can plump up your skin with moisturizer, taking the emphasis off those lines and making them look reduced.
And don’t wait to start moisturizing into you’re in your thirties or forties; you should really begin in your twenties. It will give your skin the protection it needs. It will also keep the skin of your face from prematurely aging. Don’t forget the skin of your neck and chest when you’re moisturizing. The skin there is just as delicate as the skin on your face, and they are exposed to the elements just as much. You want to protect them, as well.
What’s a good moisturizer? You want to gently add moisture to your face. The type of moisturizer you choose should be based on the type of skin you have. If you need moisturizer for dry skin, you might want to look for a product that helps the skin produce more moisture, or seals in the moisture you already have. If you need moisturizer for oily skin, you want a light moisturizer. Don’t be tempted to skip it – oil is not moisture.
Is your skin sensitive or prone to breakouts? You can find a non comedogenic moisturizer that won’t clog your pores, and won’t make your face greasy or irritated.
You also want to think about a daily moisturizer that contains a sunscreen, to cut down on the UV damage your skin receives. This is important, no matter what type of skin you have.
Start moisturizing your skin now. Don’t wait. It should be an important part of your beauty routine. No matter what your skin care regimen contains, make sure a good moisturizer is part of it.
