Make Moisturizing a Necessary Part of Your Daily Routine
Moisturize at least twice daily, morning and evening. This should be something you do every day – just like brushing your teeth or washing your face. Your hands face, feet and body all need proper moisturizing to feel and look their best – and to resist damage from both the outside and inside. If you need to moisturize even more often throughout the day to keep your skin looking and feeling good, by all means do so. Moisturized skin is healthy skin. Let your skin be the best it can be.
Getting the most from your moisturizer…
- After a warm – not hot – bath or shower, towel gently until skin is just damp. Then apply moisturizer to seal in moisture.
- Give special attention to problem spots- heels, shins, elbows, hands, knees and any place that’s dry or itchy or often exposed to the environment.
- If skin is severely dry or cracked, cover it after moisturizing with gloves, socks or clothing to help the layer of lotion stay on longer and make it more effective.
Be sure to use a good quality moisturizer – one that brings water into your skin and doesn’t just sit on top.
