We all know that cleansing our skin is essential to keep the dirt, pollutants, sweat, microorganisms and excess oil away. However, cleansing alone isn’t enough. In this blog, let’s see why moisturizing skin is so important in our daily skin care routine.
Here are top 5 reasons to moisturize your skin daily.
1. To maintain a healthy, radiant skin:
The outer layer of skin called stratum corneum is made up of about 15% of water. The use of moisturizer in skin care routine helps to maintain the skin hydration. It helps to maintain the elasticity and the flexibility of skin. The use of herbal moisturizing lotions packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants can also nourish and protect your skin. With a boost of hydration and nourishment, your skin can stay soft, supple and healthy.
2. To prevent and repair skin damage due to environmental factors:
Prolonged exposure to air conditioners, winds, cold temperatures and lowered humidity in the environment can damage the water holding capacity of the outer layer of skin called the stratum corneum. Just as the winds dry clothes on the washing line, it dries out the outermost cells present on the skin surface. This can result in dry, flaky skin. So, a moisturizer is a must to protect our skin from drying environmental conditions.
3. To prevent skin dryness caused by cleansing:
Cleansing your skin frequently with water and soaps, or harsh cleansers or frequent bathing can induce dryness of skin. A moisturizer can help to balance the drying effect caused by cleansing with harsh soaps, cleansers and water.
4. To restore skin health in drying skin conditions:

The emollients in moisturizers may have a soothing and cooling effect on skin as well.
