Many people nowadays are not familiar with skin and how it works when it comes to treating it properly. So, we’re here to make it very easy for you. WARNING: This blog will say ‘moisture’ a lot.
A lot of you may think that moisturizing is really only just for your face because you’ve probably read that somewhere along the way. As this may be true, you might be forgetting that the rest of your body needs some lovin’ as well. No matter what type of skin you have, you absolutely need to nourish it with creams, lotions and oils. Just like you need water to survive, your skin needs a moisturizer in order to keep its elasticity(that means less wrinkles in the long run) and to keep it nourished(so you can look younger for longer).
Which moisturizer should I use?
Even though we all have skin, it is not made equal. Meaning that some people may have:
- Normal Skin - Not too dry and not too oily. Use water-based products.
- Dry Skin - Flaky skin means you need to use moisturizer as much as possible with oily based products. We recommend our Rich Radiance shimmering body oil.
- Oily Skin - You probably have acne if this is the case. Event though you have oily skin, you still need to apply a light weight moisturizer.
- Sensitive Skin - You will definitely need to use a product that has something soothing like aloe vera or oatmeal.
How often do you need to moisturize?
Every.Single.Day. Yes, it’s that extremely important. We recommend using a moisturizer after every shower because that’s when your skin has opened its pores and can easily absorb anything you apply to it. If you want to take it a bit further… actually a lot further, you can even apply moisturizer to your hands after every wash. Dun, dun, dun.
We do recommend though using a lot of organic products that are natural like: coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, chamomile etc. This is something that we have found to be the most effective on our skin and you can be assured that it doesn’t have any chemicals that you can’t pronounce. Make sure to test them out on your skin first though before going all out.
