Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Leaving moisturizer out of your routine today could lead to deeper wrinkles later on. When the skin barrier is compromised, which is what we see when it becomes dry, there's actually a low-grade chronic inflammation that occurs in the skin.

Low levels of ongoing inflammation ultimately lead to a breakdown of collagen and accelerated aging. Even if your skin type tends to be normal to oily, using a high-quality moisturizer on a regular basis can be the key to improving the way your skin looks and feels.

The purpose of any moisturizer is to seal in moisture and to hold water in the skin, keeping your skin supple and smooth. Anti-aging moisturizers are all the rage because not only do they help moisturize skin but they also work to prevent wrinkles and improve cell turnover, resulting in fresher and younger looking skin.
