Even though many young people claim to have so-called “dry skin” they do not really have dry skin because their skin is still able to lock in moisture and in many cases give off an appearance of being moisturized even when they do not use any type of moisturizer.
That perk certainly fades away as you age and the only way to produce the young moisturized look is to invest in a mood moisturized and to get in the habit of using that moisturizer.
Try your best to make all your baths and showers warm rather than scolding hot. More importantly, get your skin used to a routine regarding showering and moisturizing, so it will look moisturized on a consistent basis no matter the weather or things going on around you.
The battle for maintaining moisturized skin might seem too challenging for you at first, but that is why many soaps and cleansers are now built-in moisturizers. Making use of those during your bath or shower and then slapping on some lotion to will make things ten times easier.
The other more obvious way to help moisturize is by listening to your skin. At first, that sounds odd, especially if you are older and have had the same skin for quite a long time. The thing to keep in mind is that your skin changes as you age and may require an entirely new perspective to figure out.
For example, you may have acne free skin your entire life, and now you are finding that you have tons of acne. The result is probably a moisturizer that is too heavy and thick. Shoot for oil-free if that is the case. Also, do not underestimate the power of water. Drinking water consistently is key no matter your age, but it really begins playing a role in skin health as the years go by.
There is no point in putting forth all that effort if the entire package is not being properly taken care of. In other words, if you are going to spend all that time making sure your skin glows in a youthful way you are almost certainly going to want extra help as well as an overall positive result.
