Moisturise your Skin! (Category Challenge: Beauty)

When I was younger, the only thing that I do to take care of my skin is to wash it with soap (for my body) and facial cleanser (for my face) . I wasn't familiar back then with toners and moisturizers. Little did I know that I am missing on something very important if I'd like to really take care of my skin.

Fast forward to 2014, I have finally realized the importance of moisturising our skin. It is as important as cleaning it and that it should be done at an early age.

For kids:

• Moisturising their skin can be done with lotions- hypo allergenic preferably.

• If the weather is too cold or windy, I would lather baby oil to my son's skin.

For adults:

• Moisturising lotions should be applied after shower, while our skin is still damp for the lotion to be absorbed deeper into the skin.

• Women out there should put moisturisers especially formulated for the face, twice a day - in the morning and in the evening.

• Petroleum jellies are the best and cheapest way to help moisturise the soles of our feet or cracked heels.

• Also, taking Vitamin E (which helps regenerates skin cells and takes care of them too) can be considered. Eating fruits and vegetables also helps.

Do you know any other way to help keep our skin moisturised?

The humidity here is very high so we do not need moisturizer here, unless we are in air-con room.

You know? You are right. A daily regimen of moisturizing our skin adds to health and beauty. Internally eating the healthy kind of food, lots of Omega 3 (saturated fats) makes the skin luster.

good point AsADrivenLeaf now I'll be adding more tuna to my diet since that's rich in Omega 3 :) Thanks!

I think you pretty much covered it all. Kudos on the petroleum jelly tip!

But since you work in aircon office, you need the moisturizer after all.

I don't as I don't use soap or moisturizer on my face. I run a hot washcloth over it in the evening. That is my beauty routine.
