We all apply daily facial moisturizer, but how many of us really know why we do it? Here's all you need to know about moisturizing creams, and why it is so important to keep moisturizing daily.

 Our skin is a living organ, a web of skin cells which are constantly changing, growing and dying. Day and night our skin has to protect our bodies against heat, cold, dryness and sunlight. A daily facial moisturizer is so important because it can help our skin with its daily battle from damage, and help reduce the signs of aging.

Dead Sea Moisturizing cream

Good moisturizing creams, just like Dead Sea moisturizers by Jericho, are able to help us get soft, supple and smooth skin. Daily facial moisturizing hydrates the skin, making it look healthier, younger and more radiant. Can you imagine not drinking any water throughout the day? Our body needs hydration, and so does our skin. Jericho Dead Sea moisturizer is enriched with Dead Sea minerals, natural oils, and vitamins that hydrate the skin and also nourish it on a daily basis.

Dry skin is not only unpleasant, but it can also cause irritation, red patches and a stinging sensation.  Moisturizing creams, as part of a daily facial moisturize routine, can dramatically help dry skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Scientifically speaking, our skin consists of three main layers, the epidermis being the top layer. Moisturizing creams are able to infuse the epidermis with moisture that that penetrate deep down and fills the tiny spaces between the layers of the skin. In addition, daily moisturizing locks the natural moisture in, keeping the skin looking more supple and silky.

Too much water can strip the skin from its natural moisture balance, but also products that contain harsh chemicals can effects the moisture balance of the skin and damage it. We've come up with this short list of tips, in order the get the best results out of your moisturizer:

  • Thicker moisturizers such as creams can provide a better barrier against dryness than lotions.

  • All skin types need moisture on a daily basis, even oily skin.

  • Select moisturizing creams that contain a UV protection, to prevent premature signs of aging.
