Skincare Fact: All skin types need to moisturize 2x daily!! At the most basic level, a moisturizer’s purpose is to hydrate and soften the skin. However, your moisturizer serves several other important functions as well. Natural Moisturizing Factor or NMF is a naturally occurring human function that maintains, protect and enhances healthy skin function. As we age, it becomes more difficult for the skin to hold onto its NMF and keep it balanced. Without proper hydration through a daily moisturizer, the skin becomes more vulnerable to attack from environmental and other extrinsic factors.
There is a common myth that people with oily or acne-prone skin shouldn’t use moisturizers, but this is completely false. In certain cases it can be even more important for those with oily skin or acne to moisturize because mass produced products geared towards those skin types can be very harsh and actually strip the skin of much needed hydration.
