I wasn’t exactly sure where I should put this article. Should it be under beauty tips? or should it be under my blog? I decided that moisturizing is far more than just a beauty tip. It is essential to your health and well being. I think it is a very basic of self care and that really, at the heart, is what JiuJitsu Cowgirl is all about. It’s not about applying make up so people think you look good. It’s about putting yourself first and taking care of yourself in all ways possible so YOU look good and feel good for YOU, not everyone else, that is just a bonus.
So, why moisturize? Moisturizer works to reverse the effects of dry skin. You see, blood vessels supply moisture only to the middle layer of the skin and it evaporates before it reaches the outer layer. Therefore, it is a guarantee that your outer layer of skin is not getting the nourishment is needs and bad things start to happen. Your skin starts to crack. It can get dry, scaly and flaky. It will make your wrinkles worse and if you have none you will get some. It also can cause acne and other skin conditions. Simply, put your skin is an area of your body you need to actively care for because it won’t just care for itself.
It really doesn’t take much time and does not have to be expensive. Just find a decent non pore clogging cream that works well with your skin type. I mix in mine with JiuJitsu Cowgirl Sheer Glo to add some color to my face but that is just a bonus. The moisture is not. I always cream my face twice a day. The 43 year old in me demands it and my mama would be livid if I didn’t lol. Now, start drinking plenty of water each day as well as see how the years start to roll back. I swear its like the life of Benjamin Button, aging in reverse. I dig it.
