When you use the right kind of moisturizer on your skin, it keeps it from drying out and provides it with a wall of protection. It will also improve the skin’s texture and tone and keep it soft and smooth and wrinkle free. It has anti-aging benefits, antioxidants, and sunscreen protection. Plus, it protects your skin from the environment. Using a moisturizer creates a wall on your skin that keeps the natural skin oil from escaping and protects your skin from external elements that causes irritation and dryness.
