Why having nourished and moisturized skin is important

How we treat our skin and our body is clearly evident in relation to our appearance.  Feed your skin with hypo-allergenic essential oils, vitamins and hydrating proteins that will help maintain healthy levels of moisture, control excess oil and conceal imperfections while maintaining the skin’s natural radiance and results will show.

Well hydrated and nourished skin reflects a radiant, youthful glow and moisture content in the skin helps to fight the aging process, reducing the fine lines and wrinkles that often come with mature and damaged skin.  Applying moisturizer every day, both in the morning and at night, is a critical step in aiding our skin to look its very best for years to come.  The skin will naturally rejuvenate itself throughout the night, thus applying moisturizer before bedtime is crucial to feed our skin with important anti-aging and emollient ingredients.  Applying moisturizer in the morning before your makeup will provide protection to your skin from damaging free-radicals and moisture loss which will leave your skin looking dull, sallow and dry.

What about those of us with problem skin, should we apply moisturizer too?  “It’s a common myth that people with acne should not use moisturizers, when in fact the opposite is true. If they do not use a daily moisturizer, the skin can become red and peel easily due to the drying effect of acne medications. Adding moisture back into the skin can counter the effects of these medications. People with acne should use a light, oil-free moisturizer that is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog the pores.”   –WebMd; Diane S. Berson, MD
