Homemade Moisturizers: More Important Than You Think!Moisturize Face

Moisturizing your skin is an important part of any skin care regimen. It’s not only vital for maintaining a youthful appearance, but it’s actually good for your skin and your overall health.

This vital step actually protects your skin.

Moisturizers increase the water content of the dermis and epidermis layers of your skin. Not only that, but they also help to reduce your skin’s vulnerability to what is known as trans-epidermal water loss. In effect, this means that you’re less likely to lose water through your skin.

This vital step in beauty and skin health also helps to rebalance the skin composition of lipids (what most of us would call fats) both inside and outside your skin’s cells.

Finally, moisturizers also carry nutrients and other essential substances to the dermis and epidermis layers of your skin.

And you probably thought you were only keeping your skin soft and youthful looking! It turns out that using moisturizers actually feeds and waters your skin.

It only makes sense that you try your hand at making your own natural moisturizing creams and lotions. That way you’ll know exactly what’s soaking into your skin and beneficial to the environment!


Getting the Most From Your Moisturizer

Of course, you want to receive the maximum benefits from your moisturizing lotion or cream. Here are a few steps to help you do just that!

First, you only need to apply a dollop of the cream, about the size of a dime. Yes, that’s all you really need!

Apply this using an upward, circular motion. The goal is really to massage the lotion ever so lightly onto your face. If you have oil skin, don’t massage too long.

A facial massage like the one you’re doing actually stimulates the oil glands into producing even more sebum. This will make your skin oilier.

Of course, you’ll want to apply this under your eyes, but do so very gently. This area is actually the most delicate on your face. It’s best to even use your fourth finger, because this is the weakest.

Start at the outer corner of your eye, then pat the lotion on, working inward. Ultimately, your goal is to apply this twice a day, once in the morning before you apply your makeup, and then again in the evening after you remove your makeup.

Here’s a recipe you can make in your kitchen to test!
