Your skin is the largest organ and it requires as much care as possible to maintain its healthy state. The skin may be complex in the sense that much effort is not required when you are young because it produces more collagen (Collagen is a type of protein that is a primary component of skin and it maintains skin elasticity and strength). However, as you get older your body slows down its collagen production leading to thinner and wrinkled skin which does not retain enough moisture thus needing more effort and care.

Moisturizing your skin is the number one key to assisting it to retain moisture and slow down the process of aging as less collagen is produced. Failing to moisturize your skin properly using proper lotions and moisturizers leads to a bad skincare routine. In this article, I will be sharing the benefits of moisturizing your skin and tips on how to moisturize it as well.


  1. Moisturizing your skin help soothe skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
  2. Moisturizing your skin helps limit the overproduction of sebum by balancing your natural oils thus preventing acne.
  3. Moisturizing helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

4. Moisturizing your skin reduces, slows, and fights aging signs such as wrinkles and fine lines, helping your skin to look plump, youthful, and healthier.
5. Moisturizing helps balances your skin complexion as it slows down the evaporation of skin moisture which causes dull skin.
6. It promotes healing and acts as a soothing protection layer to protect your skin from damaging environmental factors.


1. When moisturizing your body, make sure that you apply your body butter or lotion on slightly damp skin or as soon as you hop out the shower, this will help your skin lock in moisture.
2. If your skin is very dry, try to add a few drops of natural oil to your palm and mix with your body lotion or butter. In most cases, body butter has oils and may not need more.
3. Focus more on areas that tend to be drier like your elbows, knees, arms, hands and legs, they may need extra hydration.

4. Always make sure that you exfoliate your skin once a week so that your moisturizer can penetrate well into the skin.
5. When it comes to your facial skin make sure that you use a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type and does not clog pores or leave your skin dry and cream for moisture.
6. Always try to moisturize your face twice a day “morning and night”, the night-time is when your skin regenerates itself and it needs as much nutrition as possible.


Your skin, as we have established, is a very important organ and requires time and effort. The above-mentioned tips will help you keep your skin healthy even as you get older.
