Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, here is why you should.
Our skin is the largest organ of the body and one of the most complicated. It is alive and it needs to be treated gently as other organs of the body. When the skin is thirsty, it gets dehydrated. Therefore, both men and women should use a moisturizer twice a day, which provides not only hydration benefits but also helps to look and feel younger. Moisturizers prevent your skin from dryness and dehydration. To fully benefit from moisturizer is when applied while the skin is slightly damp.
The golden goddess – Turmeric has always been a staple of Ayurvedic remedies, Chinese medicine and Indian cuisine. This powerful powder has ant-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. If you know me, you’ve seen that I love turmeric, not only in my golden milk or meals, but also for my skin.
Neutrogena® was my first skincare brand I used as a teenager, that saved my skin from impurities and dehydration. They have a large product line with skincare products for all skin types and issues. Though for the first time they used the soothing powers of turmeric in the ‘Clear & Soothe’ range.

Bad skin at our age…it shouldn’t happen, right? Well, it does. We hear about adult acne very often, but can someone who has this problem get it under control? Yes, with professional skin analyzer and SkinCeuticals treatment. Here is my personal experience, how I solved my acne problem in a short time.
As a teenager, my skin was great! I almost had no pimples, maybe sometimes before my period, but in generally my skin was radiant and clean. My friends always asked me, what I’m doing to my skin? And my answer was always, nothing but washing my face with baby soap and moisturizing with a light day cream. Some of my friends had spots, but that was normal in that age and there was always Clearasil Hide The Blemish. I thought in the fact that when I get older, my skin would be still blemish-free and beautiful, but when I got 30 it wasn’t the same!
For many of us, the cold clear days of winter bring more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks. The cold also brings uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face, hands, and feet. For some people, the problem is worse than just a general tight, dry feeling: they get skin so dry it results in flaking, cracking, even eczema (in which the skin becomes inflamed). You may have found a moisturizer that works just fine in spring and summer. But as weather conditions change, so, too, should your skin care routine. My first tip for protecting your skin in winter is, to find an “ointment” moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. But choose your oils with care because not all oils are appropriate for the face! Instead, look for “nonclogging” oils, like avocado oil, mineral oil, primrose oil, or almond oil. Be careful with shea oil (or butter), because is controversial, and can clog facial pores.
The intense heat of a hot shower or bath breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which can lead to a loss of moisture. So you’re better off with just warm water, and staying in the water a shorter amount of time. After bath use body oils to moisturize your skin.
Here are my favorite products, I’ve been using this season:
This year I already posted about the new SkinCeuticals products and Metacell Renewal B3 was also there. I’ve been using this gel-lotion since July, and my skin got used to it very quickly. Metacell Renewal B3 corrects the signs of photoaging that appear at different intensities according to skin biology, lifestyle, geography, sun protection behavior, and skincare regimen, they have a multiplicative effect, creating a prematurely-aged appearance.
#2 Aperion jojoba oil
You’ve heard thousand times, and I will reply it again: I love body oils. This natural gold liquid is oxidative stability index of approximately 60, which means that it is more shelf-stable than safflower oil, canola oil, almond oil or squalene but less than castor oil and coconut oil. Provides all day moisture – jojoba oil doesn’t evaporate like water based moisturizers can. Unsightly skin issues including scabs, scars, and stretch marks may be reduced by massaging the vitamin-E rich oil into the problem areas. Plus, it may speed the healing process of wounds and cause scars to fade over time. Using jojoba oil in winter will also reduce itch and chapped skin, since the anti-inflammatory properties of the oil work to reduce dryness and irritation.
