Skin Care Tip: Improve skin hydration by diluting your moisturizer

submitted by Anonymous

In my mid-20's I started using moisturizer, but I had very oily skin. Moisturizers would sit on my skin and feel like a mask, but if I didn't moisturize my skin would feel dry and tight. I started to "water down" my moisturizers. I use about 1/3 the recommended amount and apply with WET fingertips. Damp won't do here!!! I noticed that the creams absorbed into my skin and as the years passed, I didn't develop wrinkles.

I took my good results for granted and quit using the water. Within a few short years a noticed several light lines forming around my outer eyes. I began adding the water to the application of all my moisturizers again, and the lines stopped in their tracks. I am 45 years old and people tell me I look like I'm in my late 20's

I found that it really helps to get the moisture into the skin. After all, water is moisture and it has really worked for me!
