Does everyone need a moisturizer? The story behind my skincare routine.

in Crystal Glow

For months, I was suffering from dryness and skin irritation. My food habit, lack of skincare, and working outdoors for a long time without any skin protection triggered cystic blemishes and then the dryness affected my nose and throughout my eyebrows. It all happened one after another so fast; at first, I was a bit lost. I needed to figure out how to treat it. I went through some medication, went to an esthetician who used the salicylic acid peel.


 It was tingly and uncomfortable. Soon after I turned to moisturizing creams for my face and after applying moisture regularly, I started to get better results. I continued the practice and I started to get a significant recovery on my skin and now my friends keep saying my skin is gorgeous. In this blog post, I will write about moisturizing creams, so you can avoid unnecessary skin-related problems and get better skincare. 


If you are taking care of your skin and maintaining your beauty, then you must be including a moisturizer in your skin-care routine. I know spending hours on how we look is not everyone's cup of tea. So, like myself, if you are too lazy not to work on your skin's health, even then you should at least make moisturizer be a part of your daily skincare routine because Keeping your skin hydrated day and night is essential to keep it healthy, glowing and fresh-looking.


No matter what skin type you have, your skin needs regular protection from dust, bacteria, weather changes and needs some care to keep it looking soft and smooth. A moisturizing lotion, soap, or cream should be on top of your list to acquire that protection. There are so many good reasons why that's good to use a facial moisturizer.


Applying for a moisturizing layer helps you get clear, smooth, and wrinkle-free skin. It delays the skin aging process that means your skin will always look younger. Many moisturizers contain specific ingredients that delay aging signs and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Moisturizers not only improve the overall appearance and make the surface look pretty, but medically, they also seal and protect layers beneath it and can treat dry skin conditions such as eczema. Moisturizing can help to give your sensitive skin the support it needs to repair itself and stay healthy.



There are some essential tips that you need to keep in mind when using a moisturizer:


· Cleanse and purify your skin before using a moisturizer: 

Dust, dirt, chemicals or make-up, can plug your skin pores. Dust, dirt, chemicals or make-up, can all block your skin pores. Cleansing your face deeply with water, using a good cleanser and honey allows full absorption for any moisturizer to penetrate your skin’s surface.

· Deal with your skin softly while applying any moisturizer:

Rubbing your skin roughly or using scrubs more than once a week can cause skin irritation and stimulate oil production. Rub your skin gently and apply moisturizer in circle motions. 


· Use it right after the shower:

Hot water showers can dry out your skin, so it’s advised to put a moisturizer on after taking your bath to balance the oil production on your skin. 


· Use it twice a day:

Using a moisturizer twice a day, morning and night can make a huge difference in the long-term health of your skin and can prevent various types of skin disease which do neither look good nor friendly to your skin. 


· Know your skin type:

Every girl should use a moisturizer daily, but it’s important to select one that offers you the best benefits for your skin’s needs. To know the best moisturizers for your skin, you can ask your dermatologist to recommend the best moisturizers for your face. Anything that spends much time on your face better be the right product for your skin type, right?


· Moisturizer with SunScreen:

Wear a moisturizer that has sunscreen in it during the day. But do avoid using a moisturizer that has sunscreen during the night. In the evening, have your skin on the rest and repair mode. Therefore, this is the ideal time to load up with reparative nighttime ingredients (like retinol, peptides, and antioxidants) to get the best beauty sleep possible.
