What are the Benefits of Moisturizing Products?
The moisturizing agents that you find in products contain many beneficial properties. These include emollients – which are responsible for softening your skin; it does so by filling in the gaps between your skin cells. As well as humectants – which keep your skin hydrated and help to prevent water loss. And finally, occlusive, which are responsible for creating an additional layer of protection on your skin.
Moisture aside, moisturizing products have many cosmetic benefits, which include the ability to prevent the appearance of dull skin and wrinkles. However, for the best results, concerning preventing the physical signs of aging, Dr. Schmitz recommends using anti-aging creams alongside moisturizers. Anti-aging ingredients to look out for include retinol, antioxidants (especially those enriched with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Squalene), and glycolic acid.
