Know your skin type before using a moisturizer so that you can get the best result.Skin without moisture is like leather without polish. Even people who have normal or oily skin need moisture to retain the health of the skin. The skin goes through a lot of trauma all through the day due to sun damage and the surrounding pollution. This causes aging changes to the face.
Moisturizer helps in the following way:
Protecting the skin from the harmful effects of the UV rays of the sun. Moisturizers with sunscreen are specially beneficial. This should be all the year round as the sun’s rays are equally harmful in winter
To repair the damage caused by loss of moisture. Bad eating habits, cold wintery breeze, pollution and stress can all sap the moisture out of our skin. This can be replaced only by an external application and a healthy diet.
