What Can Happen If You Don't Moisturize Your Face?

Many people think that they should only moisturize their face when their skin starts to feel dry or begins to peel. However, when they start moisturizing their faces at that stage, it is often too late. It is a common misconception that only people with dry skin need to moisturize their face. The truth is moisturizing the face is important to everyone no matter what skin type you have. Apart from the skin possibly getting dry, there are other consequences that could happen to your face.

You might Land yourself in a Wrinkle Situation

Dehydrated skin makes all the lines on your face, even the fine ones, much more prominent. Skipping your moisturizer will cause deep wrinkles in the future. This is because the skin barrier is compromised and when your skin is dry, your skin will experience a low-grade chronic inflammation that will finally cause accelerated aging because of the breakdown of collagen.

You might Experience Itchiness in your Skin

Dry skin can cause your skin to itch, so it is important to moisturize your skin daily. For best results, it is recommended that you apply a moisturizer after you wash your skin or bathe.

Your Complexion will Suffer

Skin dehydration and environment stressors can lead to a dull complexion. If you do not give your skin the moisture it needs, you may experience sagging skin, fine lines, and deep wrinkles. Therefore, you should use a moisturizer to fill in those fissures and achieve a smoother and more reflective surface.

You will Lose a Layer of Protection

If you don't want to experience uncomfortable side effects such as peeling or red skin, you should apply a moisturizer.

You will Not be able to Achieve the Flawless Makeup Look

It is important to hydrate your face before applying any base makeup. You wouldn't want makeup to seep into fine lines or stick to dry areas on the skin. To ensure that your skin properly absorbs the moisturizer and primer, you should wait at least five minutes before using a foundation product.
