Why Moisture Is So Important for Skin Health
How your skin looks, feels and ages have a lot to do with moisture as it is important for vital functions like maintaining elasticity, preventing bacteria growth, and more.
1. Prevents Dry Skin
Having dry skin that frequently peels or flakes is usually a sign of a skin type that is more prone to losing moisture. We all have a natural skin lipid barrier that helps to keep & retain moisture. This skin type can be triggered usually by a variety of conditions from dry weather conditions, a reaction to harsh chemicals, genetics, or general dehydration.
Using skincare products that help to moisturize your skin can help to replenish the lipid barriers of your skin can help to reduce or even prevent dry skin. We recommend staying away from products with harsh ingredients that can trigger dryness & irritation.
2. Eliminate Acne & Oily Skin
Oily skin is commonly linked to acne although dry skin types are prone as well. The sebaceous glands in our skin are responsible for creating oils that keep the skin healthy & hydrated. These glands can go into overdrive when triggered by the following:
- Pore-clogging or Harsh Ingredients
It’s a common misconception that moisture isn’t a problem with oily skin types. Cleansers that are used for cleansing the excess sebum can dry the skin out without sufficient moisture. Ensuring your skin stays hydrated can ensure your skin can stay healthy while preventing bacteria and fungi from penetrating the skin barrier as well.
3. Slows Aging
As you age, your skin’s healing and regenerative functions start to slow which leads to signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Moisture in your skin can help it repair itself at a healthy rate which can prevent your skin from aging.
Without a properly functioning repair system, your skin will not be able to produce sufficient elastin, collagen & fatty acids for keeping your skin young and plump. Exposing your skin to natural ingredients that keep your skin moisturized and hydrated can help your skin to stay younger.
