Why You Need A|N Daily Hydration
So you wash your face every day… AWESOME! But are you moisturizing every day? If your answer is no, then we need to have a talk. Moisturizing your skin is one of the most important steps in your skincare, and here is why!
Benefits of moisturizing your face:
Hydrated skin = less wrinkles!
That’s right! Leaving moisturizer out of your skincare regimen could cause wrinkles. This is because skin that is not properly hydrated will then become dry, and dryness can cause the breakdown of collagen. So this also means that any wrinkles you already may have will appear worse than they really are, if your skin isn’t as hydrated as it should be! Moisturizer plumps the skin, and fills in fine lines.
Lack of moisture can also aggravate acne and breakouts.
There are two things the skin may do if it is not properly hydrated. One, is that the skin will become dry, which then leaves the skin more prone to acne due to dry skin clogging the pores. Also, moisturizer can smooth out blemishes whereas dry skin will highlight each little imperfection much easier. Secondly, without moisturizer, the skin may over-produce oil to make up for the lack of moisture in the skin, which then triggers acne as well. Producing too much oil is a main cause of clogged pores and congestion in the skin.
Moisturizer adds a layer of protection to your delicate facial skin.
Not only will high-quality moisturizers (like Daily Hydration) contain ingredients that soothe and protect the skin, but properly hydrating the skin also protects the skin from becoming irritated and red, or dry and flaky, especially when using active skincare ingredients such as retinol and salicylic acid.
Make-up won’t look as smooth and flawless.
Hydrated, plump skin will allow makeup to go on more smoothly, and will keep it from creasing and showing fine lines in the skin. Makeup tends to seep into dry areas of the skin and even settles in fine lines, so moisturizing properly will help keep that from happening.
You risk having dry skin, which is never fun!
Nobody wants to have itchy, irritated skin! So lather on your moisturizer and let your skin feel hydrated and healthy!
So now that you are lathering on moisturizer while reading this…. Let’s talk about my favorite moisturizer, and how to apply it! The Daily Hydration Moisturizer from AN Skin & Beauty is the softest, lightest, and most hydrating moisturizer I have ever come across. And trust me, it will quickly become your new favorite moisturizer, also! Why I love it: It is lightweight, oil-free, and comprised of a fragrance-free formula, which effectively replenishes and hydrates the skin. Daily Hydration Moisturizer contains 3 ceramides which hydrate, replenish and restore the skin by mimicking the skin's own natural moisturization.
It also contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which visibly improves the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and dullness within the skin. It is packed with antioxidants and skin-soothing ingredients (like Acai, Green Tea, and Aloe) that protect the skin's natural barrier, too! And did I mention, it is great for ALL skin types, including sensitive?!
A little goes a long way, as all you need is one pump to cover your entire face! I personally suggest that you moisturize morning AND night, and that this is one of the last steps in your routine. So let’s say you just washed your face in the AM, and you have a brightening serum you typically apply after. Well, after your serum, you will then apply moisturizer, then your daily facial sunscreen, and either go on with your day or start putting on your make-up!
At night, you will follow a similar routine, except you will cleanse, use any serums or treatment pads, and then finish with one pump of moisturizer! You’ll notice that your skin feels silky smooth, looks plump and hydrated, and feels like butter (but doesn’t look greasy like butter!).
Moisturizer is a MUST for everyone who wants to have healthy, radiant skin. This moisturizer is probably the one product that has changed my skin the most since I had been developing signs of premature aging, I had imbalanced oil on my face (super oily t-zone, ugh!), breakouts galore, and my skin just looked dull! I can’t wait to hear how much you love adding in this moisturizer to your routine!
