Our bodies are about 60% water, so it should come as no surprise that moisture is an important part of staying healthy. That hydration includes things like moisturizing your skin. Skip the moisturizer and you’ll quickly start to experience skin that feels dry, itchy, flaky, and even cracks and becomes infected. Good moisturization is vital for healthy skin…so why do so many people go without it? Maybe they think they don’t need it now so it doesn’t matter or they just don’t want to take the time to take this extra step in their daily routines. Whatever the reasons, it’s a big mistake and one that will come back to haunt them as they get older. We give facials to people in San Francisco every day who wish they’d started moisturizing at a younger age.
Why Is Moisturizing Skin Important?
It helps skin repair itself.
Skin works best when it’s well hydrated. When you keep your skin moisturized, it can perform at peak efficiency to do things like heal and combat issues like eczema and acne. A good moisturizer will keep skin hydrated so it can devote energy to staying healthy and strong.
Your skin will look and feel better.
Moisturized skin not only looks better, it feels better, too. If your skin ever feels dry, tight, or itchy, that’s a sure sign it needs a healthy dose of moisturizer. You’ll be amazed at how much better your skin feels! A moisturizer also subtly evens out your skin tone and can diminish the appearance of blemishes, so it looks better than before, too.
Moisturizer holds water in the skin.
Moisturizer creates a moisture barrier on your skin that prevents hydration from evaporating from the surface of your skin. Holding that moisture in your skin can help prevent issues and keep it looking younger. A loss of moisture is one of the prime reasons skin start to wrinkle as we get older.
It can prevent skin issues.
Giving your skin the moisture that it needs can help it from becoming affected by various skin problems like eczema, acne, discoloration, rough patches and more. It’s like feeding your skin the nutrients that it needs in order to stay healthy.
Moisturizing protects skin from the elements.
A good layer of moisturizer will also contain sun block, giving you additional protection from harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancer and create wrinkles. It’s a good way to protect your skin from the effects of the cold and wind, as well.
