How to moisturize dry, ashy skin?
The human skin is the body’s largest organ and requires regular attention to stay young, blemish-free and healthy. Applying a moisturizer every day will encourage the body to shed cells more rapidly and then to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface.
Moisturizing everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne and premature aging. To restore moisture to dry skin, choose a heavier, oil-based moisturizer that contains ingredients that help keep your skin hydrated. For very dry and cracked skin, petrolatum-based products are preferable. Also, the massaging affect that is used when applying lotion helps stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation.
