Moisturizing is extremely important for your skin for several reasons. By keeping your skin moisturized and hydrated, you can help your skin stay healthy, avoid issues down the road, and even decrease the aging process altogether!
- The Responsibilities of Daytime Moisturizers
Of course, you’ll save a penny when buying just one moisturizer, but there’s a reason daytime moisturizers are for the day and the nighttime moisturizers are for after hours. Daytime moisturizers are typically formulated with ingredients like Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Peptides that work during all hours, but daytime moisturizers also contain a specific amount of SPF to shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. Don’t leave the house without bracing your skin with a daytime moisturizer for skincare protection you can count on!
- Why Nighttime Moisturizers Are For PM Hours
Just like with daytime moisturizers, nighttime moisturizers are also forged with hydrating ingredients your skin will love, like retinol! Retinol is derived from the pharmaceutical-grade retina that typically requires a prescription from your Dermatologist. This is practically pure vitamin A for your skin! So why not use retinol around the clock? When retinol is exposed to the sun the ingredient itself will break down more easily so your skin won’t be absorbing all the vitamin A you think you’re getting. Stick to using your nighttime moisturizers and creams at night, or use an SPF after your retinol moisturizer.
- Prevention Is The Real Secret To Anti-Aging
The real question is what skincare trick have you not heard that will solve all your anti-aging issues? Moisturizing your skin is the answer. By keeping your skin hydrated, you increase the elasticity of your cells and by doing so increase skin regeneration that keeps you looking younger longer. Use creams and moisturizers in the morning and again before going to bed. Throughout the day try sprucing-up with a spritz of a hydrating mist with vitamin C or marine infusions!
- Don’t Forget Your Eye Cream
We’ve been talking about the skin overall, but let’s not forget the most important area - your eyes! As you interact and talk with people throughout your day you’ll be making a lot of eye contact so it’s important to keep the area around your eyes looking bright and fresh! Eye creams, gels, and moisturizers are developed with sensitivity in mind, but with a mission to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. By treating your eyes with products on daily use, it’s proven to result in tighter and brighter looking skin!
