How To Apply Moisturizer For Hydrated Skin?

What if your body’s skin feels as moisturized as the skin on your face?

Finding it hard to believe, right?

Generally, we tend to focus all our attention on the upkeep and maintenance of our facial skin. We have extensive morning and night skincare routines to ensure that our facial skin is hydrated and looks supple and radiant. And in the bargain, we forget that our body too needs some TLC and regular moisturizing. 

Seasonal changes, pollution, heat, sweat, dirt, and hot showers affect the body's skin and can lead to dryness and in case of prolonged negligence, to severe skin irritation. Also, with aging fine lines, wrinkles, and patchy skin become a common sight whether you look at your face or body.

So, what can help your skin feel hydrated and bravely fight against the signs of aging? The answer would be “moisturizer.” Picking the right moisturizer with no harsh chemicals can transform how your skin feels and looks completely. Making you feel more confident in your skin with great hydration and lesser marks. 

But the question is, “Can you apply the same moisturizer you apply on your face over your body and expect the same results? Well, the answer is no. Yes, the moisturizer that is giving your face the glow that you love a lot may fail to provide moisturization to your body’s skin. The primary reason behind this is that our body’s skin is much thicker than that of our face. And penetrating through these layers of skin will not be an easy job for a facial moisturizer, generally made to penetrate into thin layers of skin. 

Are you thinking “I apply a body moisturizer daily but why my skin still doesn’t feel  hydrated?” Well, if that’s the case then take a minute and think about how you apply your body moisturizer in the morning every day. Seeing hustle in your imagination? If yes, then it must be the reason. Because to get the right boost of hydration, it is important to know how to apply moisturizer the right way. However, if this is not the case then your moisturizer may have some harsh chemicals that are affecting your skin badly. In this case, switching to a natural body moisturizer can prove to be a game changer. So, which is the best organic moisturizer for hydrated skin available in the market?

1. What To Apply First, Moisturizer Or Sunscreen?

A: The answer to this long going debate can be understood in two parts: 

When moisturizer is used before sunscreen, it usually forms a barrier that prevents the sunscreen from penetrating the skin and performing its intended function. Therefore, use your chemical-based sunscreen before your moisturizer because it needs to penetrate inside your skin to work. 

However, if the moisturizer is used on top of the sunscreen, it may reduce the sunscreen's effectiveness. Not something you'd want, once more. In this case, it is recommended to use physical or mineral sunscreen after your moisturizer. 

2. Can We Apply Moisturizer At Night?

A: Our skin repairs itself during the night, hence it is great to apply moisture in our nighttime routine as well. Applying moisturizer in a nighttime skincare routine aids in nourishing and hydrating the skin deeply, repairs it from damage, and makes it soft and supple. 

3. Can We Apply Body Moisturizer on the Face?

A: It is generally not advisable to use body moisturizers on the face as the formula of body moisturizers is thicker and heavier than facial creams, which may clog the facial pores and lead to acne issues. To nourish your facial skin deeply you can get your hands on Gheesutra Face Emulsion by Shankara Natural India which is loaded with the goodness of 100 times washed Pure A2 Ghee, Hibiscus, and Vitamin C, all of which together help to even out skin tone, deeply hydrate and rejuvenate the skin.

4. When To Apply Moisturizer On the Body?

A: For best results, apply body moisturizer after a bath when the body is warm and damp as the ingredients can get easily absorbed into the skin. However, if your skin feels dry and dull during any time of the day, you can apply some moisturizer.
