Besides sunscreen, the most used skin care product that everyone has in their routine is a moisturizer.
A daily moisturizer is an essential that everyone must have in the skincare routine. It only takes a minute to apply and gives you healthy skin without compromising your needs! But do we really know what a moisturizer really does for your skin?
The pores on your face secrete sebum, a natural oily substance to protect the skin’s natural barrier. However, with the changing temperatures, sweat, and even pollutants in the air, our skin’s need for hydration is higher than what can be naturally produced during your period. This is where moisturizers come into play.
Here are 4 reasons why you must use a moisturizer:
A moisturizer cools you down
Just like taking a cold shower at the end of a hot day, moisturizing your skin, especially the face, provides it with a cooling and hydrating effect that lowers any possible irritation and cuts down the bacteria on its surface. In a country like India where it is hot most of the year, it’s always great to have calm, cool, healthy skin whenever possible.
It reduces the chances of skin problems
When the skin doesn’t naturally create enough moisture on its surface, it can become dry while excess sebum production makes it oily. Using a moisturizer on your face daily can help balance out the skin’s need for hydration to keep it protected from irritation.
It can help fight signs of aging
Moisturizers are packed with ingredients that are meant to hydrate the skin and make it look plump and healthy. It is because of the inclusion of these hydrating ingredients that could help delay the signs of fine lines and wrinkles, while constantly keeping the skin barrier moisturized.
The right moisturizer helps reduce blemishes
Certain moisturizers are formulated keeping in mind the skin concerns that you would want to treat. Often people with oily skin avoid moisturizers thinking that they do not need it, but there are certain formulas that have ingredients that actually help fight oiliness that causes acne. Ingredients such as niacinamide and salicylic help treat the skin while hydrating it at the same time.
With the right formulation, a moisturizer can make it look radiant and healthy, giving your skin the TLC it deserves. Co-created with dermatologists and cosmoceutical experts, our Oil-free Gel Moisturizer works best on any skin type that’s prone to acne.
