Moisturize For Soft Skin

moisturizerMoisturizing should be an essential part of everyone's beauty regime. Follow these steps to have soft hydrated skin:


Know your skin type. Choose a moisturizer that will work best for your skin type. For example, if you have acne use an oil-free moisturizer, or if you need extra sun protection choose a moisturizer that contains an SPF. It's important to keep your skin hydrated but do not ignore the specific needs of your skin in the process.

Day and night. Moisturize at least twice a day. It's best to apply after you shower and before you put on your make up, and after you cleanse your face in the evening before sleeping.

Not just for your face. When applying moisturizer, move from you face down to your neck and chest as well. These are often neglected areas that will show aging, so it's important to keep that skin hydrated too. While you're at it, apply moisturizer to your hands, elbows and knees. Most of us need a little extra moisture in these areas and getting in the habit of taking care of them now will keep your skin looking and feeling softer and younger longer.


Goldilocks amounts. You don't want to apply too much moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling greasy or too little, leaving your skin thirsty. A good rule of thumb is to apply a dime size amount of moisturizer to your face. Be mindful when you apply the moisturizer so you can customize the amount that's "just right" for you!

Soak it in. Allow your skin time to soak in the moisturizer before applying makeup to avoid smearing or uneven application of color.
