Did you know that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated?
Your skin health is compromised every day by external factors like overheating, pollution and internal factors like nutrition and hormones. The average person loses 2-3 liters of water a day, which affects your skin’s level of hydration.
Now, why is moisturizing your skin
Here are 3 main reasons why you SHOULD care about your skin level of hydration
1. Moisturizing reduces the chances of skin problems: Using the right kind of moisturizer for your skin can help maintain its PH level balance. When skin is too dry or too oily, many common skin problems like acne and rosacea start to pop up.
2. Moisturizing helps your skin stay young: It is important to acknowledge that the ability to retain water and naturally produce hyaluronic acid decreases with age, which can aggravate wrinkles, and sagging.
3. Moisturizing actually prevents oil excess on the skin: Here's where it gets tricky: As a defense mechanism, your skin will create more oil to make up for the missing water and this excesses of oils in your skin will cause irritation and dry patches.
