Why Your Skin Needs Moisturizer!

Splash Away The Wrinkles Today!





Everyone says it's something you need to do, but what they don't always tell you is why.

Well, truth be told, moisturizing is possibly the most important AND necessary thing you can do for your skin, and there are tons of reasons why.

And with fall here - and winter just around the corner - there's never been a better time to start hydrating your skin and using ALL-NATURAL MOISTURIZER.

In this blog we talk about what moisturizer is, how to most effectively use it, and why your skin desperately needs it today!





Your body needs water to survive. So, it only makes sense that your skin (which is your body's largest organ), requires hydration too.

This fact has inspired many over-the-counter moisturizers to make claims of benefits meant to mask up all the dangers of their chemicals and artificial ingredients, but ALL-NATURAL MOISTURIZERS work best by doing one simply thing extremely well - hydrating your skin with healthy, all-natural ingredients.

And moisturizers are for everyone, whether you live in the cold, the heat, or if you have dry or oily skin. Moisturizing your skin is essential for ALL skin types, REGARDLESS of where you live. (1)


FUN FACT: After moisturizing, put on gloves, especially when going outside or when doing house chores. This will protect your delicate skin from the cold and harsh chemicals! (2)


ALL-NATURAL MOISTURIZERS work by stimulating blood circulation and new skin cell regeneration. (3)

This has a direct effect on the appearance of your skin because healthy cellular turnover slows down the aging process and prevents wrinkles from forming. (4)

Moisturizing also evens out your skin, which is incredibly important for people with blemished skin, as moisturizers give your skin a natural sheen and glow that provides natural toning properties and radiance. (5)

And if you're concerned about putting something "greasy" on your face, don't be. The best ALL-NATURAL MOISTURIZERS are noncomedogenic, meaning they don't clog pores or cause acne. (6)





It's always a good time to moisturize, but the best time to moisturize is after a bath, shave, or exfoliation. (3)

This means moisturizing is best done multiple times a day. In fact, most dermatologists recommend keeping your face moisturized throughout the entire day and night, including while you sleep. (7)

This is essential because even small breaks in moisturizing lead to a loss of protection of your skin and flareups of acne and dermatitis. (8)


FUN FACT: Longer showers mean a loss of moisture from your skin, so shower shorter, then moisturize for healthier, younger-looking skin! (9)


Knowing you should moisturize sometimes just isn't enough. It's also important to know when in your regimen you should moisturize.

For the most effective results, apply your moisturizer within three minutes of washing your face or stepping out of the shower.

This seals the moisture and water into your skin, locking in your body's hydration for a longer period of time. (10)



And as far as when to moisturize in your routine, always moisturize after washing and applying toner, but before applying your oils. (11)

Moisturizing not only holds your moisture in, but it also increases the effectiveness of the rest of your skincare routine. (11) (12)





Okay. So you know you need to moisturize. Now onto the next question. Where?

Well, if you're just a face-moisturizer, it's time to think bigger. In fact, it's essential that you moisturize your entire body. (13)

This is because you have oil glands throughout your entire body, and since your skin is a unified organ, you'll see the best (AND MOST DE-AGIFYING) results by moisturizing your whole, entire body. (13) (14)


FUN FACT: Alcohol strips your natural moisture away and irritates your skin! Go ALL-NATURAL and feel the hydration today!


Although you need to moisturize your entire body, there are a few areas that need some extra attention.

Skin on the chest, neck, ears, and face are the most vulnerable parts of your body to the environment and the ones at most risk of skin cancer. (3)

Two other parts of your body to pay special attention to are your hands and feet. Hands and feet have extremely high cellular turnover and are also prone to develop callouses, making them must-haves for constant hydration. (16)





So I know many of you are thinking, "Great, it's time to get out there and moisturize." But some of you may be wondering, "What happens if I don't?"

Not moisturizing can leave you with worse than just dry skin. This is because you're not giving your body the water it needs.

Depriving your skin of moisture leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and the appearance of acne and consistent breakouts. (17)


FUN FACT: Don't forget your lips. Dry, cracked lips are common during fall and winter. Apply ALL-NATURAL LIP BALM to reduce your chances of drying out this season! (18)


Research has shown that after just two days of not moisturizing, your face will begin to look flaky. And after three days, your skin will feel uncomfortable, and simply touching it will bring on irritation. (19)

And your body will look far worse. Some dermatologists consider a dry body like a raisin, with no hope of ever becoming a grape again. (20)

Sound ominous? Yeah. But it's true. If you want to maintain your skin's elasticity and youthful appearance, you have to moisturize, and you have to moisturize often. (19) (20)




Chemicals, alcohol, and artificial ingredients dry out and irritate your skin and can cause dangerous cases of dermatitis or worse!
