Protect your skin by moisturizing it

Water is the main constituent of our body, but also of our skin. (Our skin is 70% water). It has a protective film on its surface called the hydrolipidic film. It is this film that protects our skin from external aggressions (UV rays, pollution, cold, etc.) and from dehydration, by maintaining water reserves in the superficial layers of our epidermis. When this protective barrier is altered, our skin becomes more vulnerable to external aggressions and becomes dehydrated.
It then becomes dry, rough and loses its radiance.

Moisturizing your skin in depth with creams or lotions for example, helps to restore this protective barrier, but also leaves a layer on its surface similar to a hydrolipidic film and thus prevents water from evaporating. The presence of water will then help to replenish the cells of your skin, giving it a supple and plumped up appearance.

In addition, the skin on the face, neck, ears and chest is very fragile. By continuously exposing it to external aggressions, you damage it more quickly and increase the risk of developing skin diseases. This is why it is very important to protect these parts of your body. In addition, moisturizing your skin helps relieve tightness, itching and the effects of acne.

Preserve the youthfulness of your skin by moisturizing it

A study in the British Journal of Dermatology showed that people who did not moisturize their skin daily developed wrinkles earlier than those who did. Moisturizing your skin helps protect it from the agents responsible for skin aging, keeps it supple and plump, and renews it.

Moisturizing your skin will therefore help slow down skin aging and keep it looking younger for longer.

In addition, dry, rough and dehydrated skin accentuates wrinkles, crevices and imperfections, which is not very aesthetic when you apply make-up on top of it. To improve the appearance of your skin, moisturize it with cream before applying makeup.

The cells that make up skin turn white when they are not sufficiently moisturized, giving you a dull, greyish complexion. To keep your skin looking radiant and fresh, be sure to moisturize your skin morning and evening!

How to moisturize your skin properly?

Creams, lotions, oils and food supplements, many solutions exist to help you moisturize your skin daily. Adapt your care to your needs. If you have a very dry skin, use creams that are rather oily. If you have a rather oily skin, use lotions that are lighter.

 

To preserve your skin and keep it hydrated, avoid aggressing it by washing too often and using abrasive products. Limit scrubs and foaming products that dry your skin, and prefer oils to shower gels.

After your shower, when your skin is still wet, apply a moisturizing balm or milk. This will help the treatment penetrate your skin. Finally, don’t forget to drink enough water!

It is also possible to act from the inside thanks to food supplements. To protect your skin from external aggressions, it is advisable to provide your body with a sufficient amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E and antioxidants. Hyaluronic acid also helps to promote the hydration of your body’s cells and to give your skin a luscious appearance.
