A moisturizer is essential!



Moisturizers perform several important functions. They replenish both lost water and water-binding ingredients (such as glycerin) that help to retain hydration in the skin. Moisturizers are specifically formulated to prevent moisture loss, act as a protective layer that traps dirt and pollutants and they can also serve as a base layer that smoothes out the skin to create a more even surface for makeup application.

For those of you with dry skin that's caused by eczema or psoriasis, regular use of a suitable moisturizer is highly recommended to improve or prevent itching, dryness and cracking, which can further exacerbate your skin condition.
