Nourishing your body
The benefits of moisturizing your body everyday are abundant, but it all boils down to maintaining well-hydrated skin which will result in you looking and feeling great. Moisturizing your skin daily will help retain your skin’s elasticity, helping it stay plump and firm, leading to more youthful and radiant looking skin that defies the normal onset of wrinkles.
Caring for skin during the colder months takes just a little extra time and effort because the conditions are rather extreme for our tender protective barrier. Skin gets exposed to the elements: cold air, whipping wind, sun reflecting off snow. Low humidity is common in colder climates stealing moisture from skin every second of every day. And indoors it's blasted with dry heat.
Ideal time to use a moisturizer
Try to moisturize your skin at least, two times a day. The more you moisturize the healthier skin you get. It’s ideal to use a moisturizer after shower, onto your damp skin because hot water strips away all the moisture and essential oils from your skin turning it dry.
A moisturizer helps balance the required moisture level into your skin and keeps it hydrated as it can absorb all the goodness and retain more moisture providing necessary hydration to your skin.
How to apply
Moisturize your skin while it is damp, neither dry nor wet. Moisturizing wet skin is pointless as the cream will just slide off. Pat moisturizer on to your skin gently or massage it in subtle circular motions, this increases blood flow which in turn adds a glow making your skin look young. Moisturize as often as possible, don’t wait for your skin to dry or crack up to begin moisturizing.
Use a moisturizer every time you cleanse your face or wash your hands to prevent dryness and lock in moisture. It’s crucial to moisturize after you exfoliate or shave to avoid skin irritation and bumps.
Applying moisturizer boosts hydration in your skin, prevents flaking and dullness, and creates a protective layer of moisture that lasts all day and keeps your skin healthy and hydrated.
Benefits of Moisturizing your Body

Skin is prone to environmental changes that can cause damage, wrinkles and other problems. Moisture is essential to repair all the damage, help cell regeneration and nourish the growth of younger skin cells.

Including moisturizer in your daily routine helps nourish and hydrate the skin. Hydrated skin is healthier and can help reduce acne or inflammation caused by extreme dryness or oiliness.

Using moisturizers helps to boost collagen production and increases the elasticity of your skin which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Helps conceal blemishes
A moisturizer can provide nourishment to your skin and in the long run help reduce their appearance of blemishes.

Moisturizing helps lock in in the skin’s moisture by creating a barrier that prevents loss of moisture. It also supplies the skin with essential micro nutrients that help maintain a healthy skin.
