Is it really that important to moisturize daily?

The short answer: ABSOLUTELY!  Aside from daily cleansing, daily moisturization is perhaps the most important step we can take to beautifying and nourishing our skin. 

 

Why is daily moisturizing so important? 

 

Reparation.  Your skin is under a constant assault from environmental elements that dry it out.  Whether it’s sun exposure, a dry environment, or dehydration, the result is the same - dry, dehydrated skin.  A daily moisturizer helps reverse this process by infusing the skin with the hydration it needs to be healthy.  Remember, not all moisturizers are created equal.  Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a superior moisturizer that uses hyaluronic acid to bind moisture to skin cells, lock moisture into the skin, and draw moisture from the environment for lasting hydration. 

 

Anti-Aging.  As you age, your skin loses its ability to retain moisture.  At the same time, skin cells become less productive, leading to tired, sagging skin and wrinkles.  By giving the skin moisture on a daily basis, you can help to reverse this process.  With proper moisture, the skin is less susceptible to signs of aging and skin cells are better able to do their job of making collagen and regenerating themselves.  One great way to give your skin the moisture it needs is with a night treatment like Cosmedica Multi-Active Night Creme.  This ultra-hydrating treatment cream showers the skin with moisture while you sleep so you wake up feeling refreshed and looking gorgeous.

 

Protection.  Moisture is an important part of your skin’s natural defense system.  Dry skin is more susceptible to damage and aging, so if you want to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, its important that the skin be well-hydrated.  A good moisturizer also is likely to have antioxidants, which remove free radicals from the surface of the skin and prevent environmental factors from harming the skin.  Cosmedica Vitamin C Serum is a great example!

 

Circulation.  A daily moisturizer stimulates circulation in the epidermis.  With increased circulation comes increased skin cell activity, meaning more skin-firming collagen and elastin.  So proper hydration leads to less fine lines and wrinkles while promoting tighter, younger-looking skin.

 

Cosmedica Skincare uses the power of hyaluronic acid in its products to effectively moisturize the deepest layers of the skin and lock that moisture in for lasting benefits.  Try the amazing Hyaluronic Acid Serum today, and see what everyone is talking about.
