Beauty Tip 24. The importance of moisturiser
The purpose of bottled moisturisers is to supplement our bodies own naturally produced moisturiser which a mixture of sebum (the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands) and sweat.
Both types of moisturiser help maintain skin softness by retaining a high level of water in the outer layer of our skin.
They achieve this by forming a barrier that keeps moisture in and also keeps potential harmful substances out.
Most dermatologists and health experts recommend moisturising twice a day; once in the morning and once at night.
Despite the benefits of moisturising your skin, it's important not to get carried.
Over-moisturising can adversely effect your skin's ability to produce its own aforementioned moisturiser.
