50 Reasons to Moisturize Your Skin

Moisture feels amazing on your skin, doesn’t it?

We’ve been saying for years how important it is to keep your skin moisturized in many different life situations. 

So just for fun, we challenged ourselves to come up with 50 reasons you might want to moisturize your skin. 

Here’s what we came up with. Did we miss any?

You’re doing your normal routine.

1. You’re about to apply your makeup and always moisturize first.

2. You just washed your face and always moisturize next.

3. You just exfoliated your skin, and your skin could use the extra moisture

4. You just shaved your legs and moisturize your skin afterwards

5. You’re about to apply sunscreen and want to protect your skin, so you’re applying a moisturizer first.

6. You’re switching to a simpler makeup routine, so you’re replacing foundation, concealer or other makeup with a moisturizer.

You’re going somewhere new.

7. You’re moving to a new, drier climate where your skin will need moisture. Or you’re a snowbird who migrates for part of the year, and the moisturizer helps your skin adapt.

  8. You’re traveling to a new place and getting on a dry, temperature-controlled airplane to fly there.
