Moisturizing the skin is a very important step in a beauty routine, regardless of your skin type. Indeed, we must not forget that our skin is mostly composed of water and that this water evaporates every day. This phenomenon can lead to problems with the skin's hydrolipidic film if the skin is not sufficiently hydrated. This can lead to dehydration, sensitivity to external aggressions, discomfort and dull skin. To reverse this, all you need to do is provide the skin with good hydration through nourishing and moisturizing treatments. Moisturizing the skin is also particularly important if you have dry skin. This type of skin struggles to stay hydrated and comfortable and needs to be deeply moisturized every day. Find out why it's important to take care of your skin and how to do it!
Why is it important to take care of your skin?
The main reason why it is important to take care of your skin is that the skin is our protective organ. It protects us from external aggressions (wind, cold, sun, pollution), but also from heat and cold by regulating our body temperature. This protective barrier therefore deserves all our attention and all the care necessary to stay healthy and perform its role correctly! We may also want to take care of our skin simply to have a healthy and beautiful skin. After all, the skin of the face, but also that of the body during the beautiful days, is exposed to the eyes of all. It is therefore normal to want to have a pretty skin! Finally, we can want to take care of our skin, because it is a way to take care of ourselves.
How to take care of your skin?
Here is the beauty routine to adopt to have a soft, moisturized and healthy skin all year long! First of all, we advise you to clean your skin every day. For the face, choose a gentle cleanser and makeup remover, and for the body, choose a cleanser without irritating foaming agents. Cleansing your skin every day allows you to remove dead skin cells, excess oil, foundation, pollution and dirt accumulated during the day. Once your skin is clean, move on to moisturizing! Oil, moisturizing cream, vegetable butter... The idea is to bring both oil and water to the skin, so to nourish and moisturize it, to keep its hydrolipidic film intact. Once or twice a week, you can exfoliate your entire body. It allows you to clean your skin deeply, to say bye bye to dead skin and to facilitate the penetration of your moisturizer.
What products should I use to moisturize my skin?
Before choosing the product that will moisturize your skin, you must know your skin type, because we do not take care of an oily skin like a dry skin! Indeed, these two types of skin do not have the same needs. Dry skin needs a product that is both moisturizing and nourishing because it lacks water, but also fat. A moisturizing cream composed of a watery phase and an oily phase is therefore ideal. For body hydration, you can opt for a soothing and nourishing balm. Mixed and oily skin, prone to excess sebum, will prefer a light moisturizer that will not clog pores, such as a fluid or gel. Don't forget to moisturize your body and hands with a moisturizing oil or milk. Normal skin, on the other hand, is easier to satisfy in terms of hydration. A day cream for normal skin is more than enough. As for the body, an oil, a milk... treat yourself!
Now you know why it is important to take care of your skin by moisturizing it every day!
