Butters, Lotions and Oils help the skin by moisturizing it to make it appear and feel smoother, softer and more supple. It also alleviates the pain and removes the flakiness of extremely dry, cracked skin to make it appear beautiful and healthy. Furthermore, it helps the skin age much slower because highly moisturized skin is known to stay younger- looking much longer than dry skin. In fact, lack of moisture makes skin more prone to wrinkles and premature aging. Moisturiser provides the skin with a protective layer against outside forces that are damaging to the skin, such as sunlight and pollution. The most important times to use moisturizer are after a bath, shave or exfoliation. For some, this might be twice a day. Moisturizing after a shower is very important because hot water strips all the moisture and oils out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry.
