You might think it’s not a big deal to miss a day or two of your skincare routine – but it’s likely your skin will start reacting right away. As a matter of fact, the skin needs consistency to thrive.
Skipping your moisturizer can cause lots of problems for your anti-aging journey but the most common issues you will experience are revealed below!
Collagen Drops FAST!
Starting at the age of 30, our bodies start producing less collagen than ever before. This is when most people will start to experience the first symptoms of aging and it only gets worse from there. If you are using a moisturizing cream that helps to increase your collagen, like our Repair & Release Cream, you will start to notice your skin getting worse almost instantly if you start skipping days.
Collagen doesn’t get produced overnight but you produce the most amount of it when it’s being consistently increased. When you apply your Repair & Release Cream daily, it will continue to increase your collagen production to help you see results. If you stop, however, you’ll start to notice quickly that you’ve broken the momentum of your collagen production and can be undoing all the hard work you’ve put in.
You’ll See More Wrinkles
The best part about using a super-nourishing moisturizing cream is that it adds moisture to your skin and can help mask wrinkles almost instantly. When skin is dry, wrinkles look deeper and bigger which can hurt your confidence and make you look much older than you are. Dry skin also puts your skin under stress which can lead to dullness, breakouts, and more damage to the parts of your skin that you can see.
Sticking to your moisturizing routine is going to be one of the biggest deal-breakers for reaching your skincare goals. Best of all, using a moisturizer that is packed with peptides that can rival Botox results is going to help smooth away your wrinkles and keep new ones away. The best offense is a good defense and twice a day moisturizer application will get you to victory when it comes to your skincare goals!
Makeup Looks Awful!
Have you ever tried applying makeup to dry, dehydrated skin? Makeup tends to cling to the dry areas of your face rather than get absorbed by your skin, so it ends up looking patchy and badly-applied. Even if you have a fool-proof makeup routine and found products you love, skipping your moisturizer will leave you feeling insecure about your makeup application and constantly reapplying throughout the day.
When you apply your moisturizing cream in the morning, it helps prep skin as a primer for makeup. This will give you that dewy glow you see in the magazines and your makeup will look so much better! At night after a long day of skin being under makeup, it needs to be refreshed with peptides and nutrients that come from your cream so it can revitalize your skin overnight while you sleep. If you keep trying to get a professional makeup look but your skin isn’t cooperating, it’s likely because you’re not being consistent with your moisturizing cream!
