Well if we’re being honest, lotion is important for everyone. But moms and dads tend to take care of everyone around them before themselves. Daily moisturizing is vital for healthy skin, and something that is often forgotten as part of self-care. Our skin is the body’s largest organ and needs regular care to stay young, blemish-free and functioning properly in keeping toxins and irritants out of the body.
What Moisturizer to Use
Using lotion and moisturizers regularly should be part of any good skincare regimen, but of course, some are better than others. Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is a lightweight, hydrating lotion formulated for delicate, sensitive skin. It is rich in vitamin E, Chamomile, Arnica, Aloe Vera and other natural botanicals that help restore and retain your skin’s natural moisture. You want a lotion that doesn’t clog your pores because clogged pores can create acne.
When to Moisture
The most important times to moisturize are after you shower, exfoliate or shave. Moisturizing after you shower is extremely important because hot water strips much of the oils out of your skin, leaving it high and dry! I know it’s hard to skip out on the hot water, so just make sure to moisturize afterwards.
How to Stay Young in Your Appearance
The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are the most sensitive to environmental changes and are the most receptive to skin cancer. These areas of skin shed cells more rapidly than other parts of the body and therefore need more moisture to repair itself, which allows for newer skin cells to rise to the surface. Moisturizing everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness and oiliness. Moisturized skin is key to making the skin look plump and rejuvenated which gives off that fresh, youthful skin.
- Pat dry. Do not rub your skin.
- Drink a lot of water.
- Wear your sunscreen.
So moms and dads, take the time to take care of yourself in the morning. Do it for at least 7 days straight and you will see a difference and then you will want to continue to take care of your skin! It’s worth it.
