Benefits of Skin Moisturizers

Skin Moisturizing

If you want plump and healthy looking skin which gives a smooth appearance, you should make it a habit to use a moisturizer regularly. Moisturizers help by trapping the skins natural moisture from evaporating by forming a protective layer between the skin and the air. When this natural moisture gets temporarily trapped near the skin, it gives a smooth and healthy appearance. It also gives relief from dry and irritated skin. However, if you have acne prone skin, moisturizers can cause the pores to get clogged, aggravating your acne. Therefore, if you have oily skin, avoid using too much moisturizer.

There are a number of moisturizers which you can use at different times during the day, or according to your skin type. For example, herbal moisturizers are very light which you can use during the day, so use a light moisturizer before applying make-up to hold it better. Also, if you have oily skin, then you should use a delicate moisturizer which would not make your skin oilier. If you have very dry skin, you would want to use a heavier moisturizer, especially at night to keep your skin moist. Moisturizers also protect the skin from the sun, help improve blood circulation, nourish the skin, reduce the pore size of the skin to prevent dirt and debris from settling down on it and keep the skin hydrated. Moisturizers also protect the skin from free radicals and other environmental factors like wind, air and sunlight. If you want, you can even mix or blend your moisturizer with your favourite moisture cream before applying.

So start moisturizing your skin as a daily ritual and you will keep your skin healthy, plump and hydrated for several years to come. The best time to use moisturizer is right after you cleanse your skin as it will trap and replenish all the moisture and good oils of the skin which are lost during cleansing. You can also use a moisturizer right after you take a bath when the skin is wet.
