Keeping Your Skin Moisturised
There are things that you should avoid doing and keep doing in order to keep your skin moisturised. Some may sound surprising but if you want to say no to dry skin then follow these simple tips. Here are the Dos and Don’ts in keeping your skin moisturised.
- DON’T bathe that often. The tub may be very inviting after a very long day at work and the warm water is just too irresistible but don’t do it everyday. Also when you do run a warm bath don’t fall asleep in the tub. Many of us are guilty of dozing off in the tub.You should know that water especially hot water and soap will rob your skin of its essential oils. Therefore if you stay too long in the tub your skin will feel dry. Stick to 15 minutes or less than that bathing time to avoid drying up your skin. Also do it only thrice or four times in a week.
- DO apply moisturiser. When it comes to moisturisers Argan oil should be your top choice. Argan oil not only moisturises the skin but also helps in slowing down the process of skin aging. How does it do such wonder?Well the answer can be found on its components. Because of its essential unsaturated fatty acids the skin is kept healthy and premature skin aging is also prevented. The fatty acids of the oil also keeps the skin smooth by preventing fine lines from developing. The oil keeps the moisture in the skin because of its Sterols and this component also is responsible for improving the metabolic processes of the skin.It is also rich in Vitamin E which stops the aging of skin cells and provides nourishment to the skin cells. Its Prostaglandins also helps in allowing the skin to develop. It also has Ferulic acid which does not only protect the skin from aging but also from the harmful effects of UV rays. Your skin is also protected from free radicals because of its Carotenoids ingredient. If you want moisturised and healthy skin then this oil is truly an excellent choice for a moisturiser.
- DO learn when it is best to apply moisturiser to the skin. After patting dry (you should still be damp when you pat dry) your skin from showering or bathing is the best time to lather your skin with tender loving care via your moisturiser. You should also make time for moisturising before you go to bed.
These easy to follow tips are just some of the ways to keep your skin moisturised.
