When to use a moisturizer?

on August 31, 2023

Most of us use a moisturizer every day, either before a mineral sunscreen during the day or after using a chemical peel in the evenings or after applying a face serum at bedtime. But there are a lot more situations where your skin loses moisture and needs a moisturizer. Let’s discuss the right time to use a moisturizer to reap its skin benefits to the fullest.

Low humidity & harsh weather:

A drop in humidity and extreme weather conditions can strip your skin moisture levels, resulting in a dry and damaged skin barrier. Using a moisturizer helps create a barrier to seal the hydration and shield your skin from environmental stressors.

Post-sun exposure:

Direct sun exposure can dehydrate your skin and may lead to sunburn. Using a moisturizer post sun exposure helps soothe any sunburned areas and aid in the skin’s healing process.

Low temperature:

Cold temperatures can make your skin extremely dry and make your skin feel tight. Moisturizing helps to preserve skin moisture, keeping your skin soft and supple.

After a shower:

Bathing can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and flaky. Applying moisturizer to half dry skin right after bathing helps to seal in moisture and nourish your skin. If you have acne prone skin, make sure to apply a moisturizer when your skin is completely dry.

Before and after swimming:

Though swimming can be enjoyable, chlorine in the swimming pool can be drying to the skin. Using a moisturizer before and after swimming is crucial to protect the skin barrier, preventing chlorine in the water from stripping away your skin’s natural moisture. Don’t forget to apply your sunscreen after your moisturizer.

In Air-conditioned places:

If you are someone who spends most of your time in an air-conditioned environment, it can lead to dry and parched skin. Regularly moisturizing your skin helps create a protective barrier, preventing your skin from becoming dry and dull due to artificial cold air from the AC. Make sure to avoid sitting directly against the AC airflow.

Before bedtime:

Bedtime is the optimal time for your skin to repair and rejuvenate. Applying a moisturizer just before going to bed allows it to work overnight, deeply nourishing your skin and promoting its natural regeneration processes.
