Moisturizing helps maintain your skin’s barrier function.
Skin tends to dry out easier as we age. So as age increases we need to focus even more on effective moisturizing. Here are 4 points to consider to keep your skin fresh and moisturized.
- Avoid washing the face roughly with hot water. This will rob your face of natural oils, and damage the outermost layer of skin.
- After cleansing, the skin can dry or crack more easily. Using a cotton pad to evenly apply toner or moisturizer helps restore your skin.
- Don’t let that moisture evaporate away after application. After restoring the moisture to your face, apply a cream type lotion to lock moisture and nutrients in.
- Pay attention to environmental conditions. For example, strong wind in winter or high temperatures in summer can rob your skin of moisture. Adjusting room humidification and applying sunscreen are a few ways to manage skin care.
