1. You'll have flaky and dull skin.
Since your skin lacks moisture, your complexion will flake and appear lackluster.
2. Your skin becomes prone to wrinkles.
When you neglect to moisturize, collagen breakdown is bound to happen, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
3. And breakouts, too!
If you think oily skin will only get greasier with moisturizer, you're wrong. Dehydrated skin can make acne inflammation worse. Remember, moisturizers create oil-moisture balance in the skin.
4. Your skin becomes defenseless.
Moisturizers act like locks that seal in the skincare products you've applied beforehand. Plus, if you're using retinoid, AHA, and BHA, they can protect your skin against peeling and redness.
5. Your makeup won't stick on your skin.
Makeup slides off the face easily when there is no moisturizer on your skin's surface. Plus, foundation and concealer sits on the crevices of dry skin, so if you have fine lines, they will be magnified. Be sure to put on a layer of lightweight, oil-free moisturizer before putting on makeup.
You can avoid all these scary issues when you incorporate a tub of moisturizer in your regimen. Here are our hydrating recommendations:
