All the Reasons you need to Moisturize

Moisturizing the skin is so important that it should be added to your daily skincare routines. Amongst everything you need to do every morning, moisturizing your skin can feel like another chore. However, you must replenish your skin with moisture that may have been lost after cleansing.

From hydrating the skin to keeping it clean, smooth and wrinkle-free in a long run, here are a few benefits of moisturizing your skin:

It maintains skin balance

Several skin issues can pop up due to dryness of the skin. And when the skin is too oily, chances of skin breakouts tend to increase. Using the right moisturizer for your skin can help maintain its balance. To make the harmattan season more bearable, the ORÍKÌ Whipped Shea Butter Soufflé can serve as a perfect moisturizer to keep your skin and hair looking fresh all day long.

It helps in makeup application

A flaky, patchy and dry skin surface will make for a creasy canvas when applying concealer, foundation and powder which can make fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes more noticeable. When your skin is hydrated, it is smooth and supple. Moisturized skin will improve your makeup application and give it a smooth, seamless base.

It aids effective skin repair

The most sensitive areas of your skin - the face, ears, neck, and chest - replace themselves more often than any other area on your skin. The loss of skin cells daily leaves these areas vulnerable to the dryness and the elements. They are the highest-risk areas for skin cancer. Moisturizing can help give your sensitive skin the boost it needs to repair itself and stay healthy.

It conceals other blemishes

A freshly moisturized skin has a healthy sheen, which can even out any existing blemishes. Some moisturizers have some tint or self-tanner that can work with any skin tone.

It aids age control

The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are very sensitive to environmental changes and are the most frequent areas of the body known to develop skin cancer. Skin cell shedding occurs rapidly in these areas of the skin and therefore need moisture to repair itself and give room for younger skin cells to rise to the surface. Also, the massaging effect that is used when applying lotion helps stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation. The ORÍKÌ Natural Green Tea Body Moisturizer restores hydration and re-mineralizes rough skin with this intensely smooth body lotion.
