7 Bad Things That Happen When You Don’t Moisturize Your Face

Everyone knows that moisturizing your skin is important, but do you know why? The obvious answer is that your skin can get dry, but there are other ill effects that you need to know.

  1. YOU COULD DEVELOP MORE WRINKLES.

That’s right: Leaving moisturizer out of your routine today could lead to deeper wrinkles later on. “When the skin barrier is compromised, which is what we see when it becomes dry, there’s actually a low-grade chronic inflammation that occurs in the skin,” warns dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe. “Low levels of ongoing inflammation ultimately lead to a breakdown of collagen and accelerated aging.”

  1. THE WRINKLES YOU ALREADY HAVE WILL LOOK EVEN WORSE.

Yes, going without moisturizer can make your current lines look, well, less fine. “Dehydrated skin shows all the lines,” says Dr. Bowe. Want them to be less prominent? Dr. Bowe recommends plumping up your skin with a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid.

  1. YOUR COMPLEXION WILL APPEAR DULL AND FLAKY — ESPECIALLY IF IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.

“In the winter, humidity levels plummet, and the dry air can dehydrate your skin and strip it of lipids, which are part of its protective outer layer — so irritants can enter more easily and cause redness and flaking,” says Debra Jaliman, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and author of Skin Rules.

  1. IT WILL AGGRAVATE YOUR ACNE.

Sounds counterintuitive, but moisturizer really is your friend if you have blemishes. “Dryness can actually make your acne worse,” says Dr. Debbie Palmer, dermatologist and founder of Replere Skin Care. If you’re afraid of feeling too greasy, pick a moisturizer that suits your needs: “For patients with acne-prone skin, I recommend using an oil-free, fragrance-free, noncomedogenic moisturizer along with their acne regimen.”

  1. YOU LOSE A LAYER OF PROTECTION.

“Many of the most effective skin care ingredients like retinoids, salicyclic acid, and benzoyl peroxide tend to be very drying,” says Dr. Bowe. So when you don’t follow them up with moisturizer, you risk uncomfortable side effects like red, peeling skin. Dr. Bowe adds: “When this happens, most people stop using their powerful products regularly, so they wind up dealing with the side effects without reaping the full benefits.”

  1. YOUR MAKEUP WON’T LOOK SO FLAWLESS.

You know those little lines under your eyes where your concealer creases? Those will look worse if you don’t hydrate your face before applying base makeup. “Makeup sticks to dry areas on the skin and even seeps into fine lines,” warns Dr. Bowe. For best results, she recommends waiting about five minutes before using foundation so your moisturizer or primer can properly absorb. Bonus tip: Use a lip balm before putting on lipstick for long-lasting color.

  1. YOUR SKIN WILL ITCH LIKE CRAZY.

You know that tight feeling your skin has when you’ve just gotten out of the shower? Imagine that — all day long. And if all the other reasons aren’t enough for you to slather on some moisture, just thinking about this should do the trick.

Why Is Moisturizing So Important For You?

“Massage is considered to be an effective method to strengthen the immune system, as it combines essential oil application with touch, entering through the largest organ in our bodies, our skin”
Amy Leigh Mercree

When you’re thirsty, you reach for a glass of water. When your skin is thirsty, a moisturizer gives it the hydration it needs. Moisturizers help to nourish and improve your skin in a number of ways.

1. Replaces some of the oils your skin makes naturally

2. Covers and protect tiny fissures in your skin

3. Creates a layer of soothing protection from environments

4. Helps to slow down the evaporation of your skin’s moisture

5. Moisturizing Helps to Protect Against Environmental Damage


Have you ever noticed that your skin becomes extremely dry and chapped when exposed to cold, dry air? Chapped lips, hands, and cheeks are a common issue during the colder months. This is especially true if you spend lots of time outside. When your body is cold, it tries to conserve heat.

“Be patient. Your skin took a while to deteriorate. Give it some time to reflect a calmer inner state. As one of my friends states on his Facebook profile: “The true Losers in Life, are not those who Try and Fail, but those who Fail to Try.”
Jess C. Scott

Part of this process forces the blood vessels in your skin to constrict, which keeps skin from getting the moisture it needs. As a result, you’re left with dry, red, and irritated skin. Moisturizing regularly helps to replenish your skin’s lost hydration. A thicker moisturizer is best for healthy skin in cooler weather.

Moisturizing Helps to Prevent Aging
Regular moisturizing also helps to nourish your skin in the long term, potentially slowing the signs of aging. At least that’s what an article published in a 2010 issue of the British Journal of Dermatology found. The study compared the number of wrinkles and levels of skin hydration in 122 women over a period of eight years.

“Say good morning to your skin with this enchanting treat.”
Amy Leigh Mercree

The researchers found that on average, a 28 year old woman had a 52% increase in visible wrinkles by the time she was 36 if she had dry skin, compared to a 22% increase in women with well-hydrated skin. This connection between moisturizing and wrinkles comes down to the skin barrier, the outermost layers of skin that help to maintain consistent moisture levels.

As you age, your skin barrier becomes less effective, leading to the types of damage we often associate with aging (including wrinkles). Regular moisturizing (along with adequate sun protection and regular exfoliation) helps to keep skin looking full and radiant.

Moisturizing Helps Control Eczema and Other Skin Conditions: If you are one of the 31.6 million Americans who suffer from some form of eczema, you know that an outbreak of this itchy, irritated skin can quickly ruin your day. Regular moisturizing can be an effective method for preventing eczema outbreaks, as well as soothing them if they do occur.

“Self care is an essential part of a healthy life. Essential oils figure in many at-home remedies to smooth the skin, soothe the spirit, and calm the mind.”
Amy Leigh Mercree

Dry skin is a common eczema trigger. Applying a moisturizer after a shower or bath helps to lock in moisture, improving your skin’s ability to act as a barrier against the outside environment. Avoid moisturizers that contain dyes, perfumes, alcohol, detergents, and other irritating ingredients: these junky chemicals can actually lead to irritation and an even bigger eczema flare-up. Instead, use an all-natural Shea Butter based moisturizer to nourish, soothe, and protect your skin.

Moisturizing Just Feels Great
Is it silly to point out how good it feels to moisturize? We don’t think so! Enjoying the sensation and aroma of a smooth, rich, all-natural moisturizer can be sublime. Applying a luxurious moisturizer at the end of a long bubble bath is the perfect way to relax and unwind at the end of the day.

A sumptuous cream or body butter helps take care of your mind as well as your body, making moisturizing an effective way to care for your overall well being.

I Practice Patience.


My patience grows stronger with practice. I welcome situations that test my patience. Modern technology makes it easy to get used to immediate results. I remind myself that good things are worth waiting for. I invest the time and resources needed to accomplish my goals.


Patience chases away irritations. I feel content, even when I do not get my own way.

Patience makes my timing better. I take action at the most opportune moment to achieve the most positive results. I wait until morning to ask my neighbors to turn down their stereo, rather than getting into a conflict during a late night party.


My days are filled with opportunities to practice patience. I take advantage of long lines at the supermarket or post office. I volunteer for tedious tasks at work. I listen to people who have a long story to tell.


I start by relaxing my body. Smiling unclenches my jaw. Deep breathing loosens up my stiff neck and shoulders. I instantly feel calmer and more patient.

I let go of expectations. I know that I am likely to encounter obstacles, whether I am buying a house or planning a dinner party. I feel less frustration when I am flexible with my plans.


I pause to acknowledge and assess my feelings. I wait out the urge to strike back at someone or complain about an issue. I tolerate my discomfort, and search for constructive solutions.


Today, I accept delays and setbacks without getting upset or angry. I extend more patience to myself and others.


Self-Reflection Questions:
1. What is the difference between being patient and being passive?

2. What is the relationship between patience and happiness?


3. How can I use self-talk to develop more patience?

New Challenges Unearth Untapped Strength and Ability

Whenever I feel like I lack the strength to tackle obstacles, I remind myself of my power. Positive self-talk pushes me to take on tough situations that have an uncertain outcome. When I tell myself that I have what it takes to figure it out, I get a jolt of confidence and dive right in. I stay afloat because I know I am able to.

Figuring things out along the way shows me what I am made of. I am pleasantly surprised by my abilities when I push past my comfort zone. My mind is a powerful tool. It takes me to places that surprise me. I discover my true ability when I say yes to the unknown and embrace the outcome with an open mind.

Being able to figure things out is a nod to my competitive spirit. Physical challenges are a hindrance at times, but I refuse to be out even when I am down. There is a fighting spirit in me that ensures that giving up is a last resort. My limitations are only as impactful as I allow them to be.

There is always an alternative to achieving a goal when the first option is unavailable. I rely on my creativity to find ways to get it done. Today, there is power inside me that is waiting to be unleashed. I treasure opportunities that challenge what I know about myself. They give me a chance to learn even more about the unearthed strength and ability that lie dormant.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Which newly discovered strength am I most proud of?
  2. How easy is it for me to find alternatives to unfamiliar challenges?
  3. When is it time to rely on the support of others?

Challenges Allow my Abilities to Shine.

Challenges are a welcome part of my life. Others may avoid challenges and view them negatively. I enjoy a good challenge.

When life is easy, I become stagnant. Challenge gives me the opportunity to grow as a person. I move closer to becoming the best possible version of myself when I face, and overcome, obstacles.

Challenges provide the opportunity to learn. There is wisdom in every challenge. I learn a valuable lesson each time I struggle. Challenges make me more intelligent and intellectually capable. I am able to extract the wisdom from each and every challenge.

Facing a challenge makes me stronger. I have more mental stamina and grit because of the obstacles I have faced. I feel confident I can overcome any challenge because of the struggles I have overcome in the past.

I look forward to challenges. My abilities grow when I am challenged. Difficult times bring my abilities to the surface where they can shine. I keep my eyes open for new challenges that can add to my skill set. Challenges sharpen my skills and hone my mindset.

Today, I welcome new challenges into my life. I look forward to overcoming the demanding situations that present themselves today. Challenges allow my abilities to shine.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What is the greatest challenge I’m facing right now? What can I gain from overcoming it?
  2. What challenges have I have avoided in the past? How would my life be different if I had faced those challenges?
  3. What are the challenges I can see on the horizon? How can I prepare for them?

Who Else Wants to Break the Snooze Button Habit?


“The night is the hardest time to be alive and 4am knows all my secrets.”
― Poppy Z. Brite

The snooze button may seem like your friend, but your relationship is probably toxic. Your alarm clock could be interfering with the quality and quantity of your sleep.

What happens to your brain when you keep hitting the snooze button each morning? You experience several stages of sleep throughout the night. Towards morning, the percentage of rapid eye movement or REM sleep increases. That’s when you dream and enjoy more restorative effects.

That’s also when you’re likely to hit the snooze button and interrupt the cycle. As a result, you tend to feel groggy and that sleep inertia can continue for hours.

Say goodbye to your snooze button and say hello to pleasant dreams. Try these tips for waking up more naturally.

How to Quit the Snooze Button Habit:

“There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.”
― Mindy Kaling
  1. Make a commitment. Are you short-changing yourself on sleep so you can work late hours or watch Netflix? Remember that chronic fatigue can contribute to weight gain, heart conditions, and other health issues. Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep a night.

  2. Keep your distance. Put the snooze button out of reach. Move your alarm clock or phone off your nightstand and place them across the room.

  3. Budget your time. Do you set your alarm early so you can press snooze several times? Calculate how much time you really need in the morning and eliminate that leeway.

  4. Plan a treat. Dangle a reward that will make you want to throw off the covers. Eat a delicious breakfast with grilled fish and fresh berries. Sign up for an early yoga or spin class before work.

  5. Seek support. Let your family know what you’re doing. Cats and dogs can also be very persuasive when they want you to open your eyes.

  6. Try an app. Sleep apps tend to be inaccurate because individual sleep patterns vary so widely. However, they can help you to be more aware of your behavior, especially while you’re trying to change your habits.
     
  7. Vary the sounds. Maybe you’re so used to your alarm that you turn it off without even realizing what you’re doing. Use different sounds to capture your attention. You may also want to experiment with devices that use light or vibrations.

  8. Deal with relapses. A long-standing snooze habit can take time to break. Be patient and grateful for gradual progress.

  9. Talk with your doctor. What if you’re sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night and still having trouble waking up naturally? See your doctor to discuss whether you might have a sleep disorder.

Additional Tips for Restful Sleep:

“There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.”
― Homer, The Odyssey
  1. Be consistent. Giving your mind and body sufficient rest is the most effective way to break the snooze button habit. Go to bed and rise at the same time each day as much as possible, even on weekends and holidays.

  2. Block out noise. If the neighbor’s stereo is keeping you up, buy a fan or white noise machine. Look for comfortable ear plugs if you need more help.

  3. Adjust the lights. Exposure to morning light changes your hormone levels. You’ll find it easier to wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night.

  4. Turn off electronics. Bright lights and exciting movies stimulate your brain. Turn off the TV and other devices at least one to two hours before bed.

The next time you’re tempted to hit the snooze button, ask yourself if increasing your chances of a long and active life is more important than 9 minutes of fragmented sleep.

A consistent sleep schedule and other simple habits can help you wake up feeling fresh and enjoy each day more.

15 Easy Lunch Tips to Help You Lose Weight

Your lunchtime habits can make or break your weight loss plans. Fast food burgers and fries often contain more calories than you need for the entire day, but there are many simple options that will satisfy your hunger without putting on extra pounds.

Your midday meal can be delicious and nutritious without requiring a lot of money or time. Start with these ideas for using your lunch hour to help you slim down.

Bringing Your Lunch:

1. Prepare the night before. If you spend most mornings rushing around to get everyone ready for school and work, give yourself a head start. Look for recipes you can make before you go to bed, like putting your smoothie ingredients in a blender jar in the refrigerator so you can just hit a button in the morning.

“A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement”
― Jess C Scott

    2. Start from scratch. Bringing frozen pizza to work is really just about the same as ordering take out. Switch to whole foods and home cooking.

3. Focus on plants. Try to get at least half your calories from vegetables and fruits. Enjoy a variety of salads, sandwiches, soups, and other dishes.

4. Master the microwave. Do you yearn for a hot meal? Pack an insulated lunch bag with thermos containers of chili or lasagna you can quickly heat up at noon.

Going Out for Lunch:

“You are what what you eat eats.”
― Michael Pollan

1. Seek support. Studies show that we tend to consume more calories at a restaurant if we’re with companions who indulge too. Invite your coworkers to make a pact to order lighter dishes.

    2. Check the menu. What if the choices are limited to cheesesteak and Buffalo wings? Go online before you visit a new restaurant to ensure they serve grilled fish or pasta with vegetables.

    3. Eat soup. Whether you prefer minestrone or clam chowder, you’ll find that most lunch spots offer some kind of soup. Soup helps you to slow down so you may feel full while eating less.

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
― Michael Pollan

4. Inspect your salad. Some salads turn out to be the most fattening item on the menu. Go easy on the bacon, cheese, croutons, and creamy dressings.

5. Ask for substitutions. You might enjoy your favorite lunch dishes just as much with a bit less sugar, fat, and salt. Some restaurants have no substitution policies, but others will be happy to accommodate you.

    6. Bring back leftovers. Serving sizes are often massive. Push half your food to the side of the plate so you can take it home for dinner or lunch tomorrow.

“I am a better person when I have less on my plate.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert

Other Ideas:

    1. Stay on schedule. Skipping breakfast or lunch to save calories will probably backfire. You usually wind up so hungry that you raid the vending machine or overeat at your next meal.

    2. Eat mindfully. Paying attention to your food encourages you to make healthier choices and enjoy your meals more. Leave your desk for lunch. Sit down someplace where you can relax and forget about the office for a while.

3. Walk around. Prolonged sitting contributes to obesity and back pain. Use your lunch hour to stroll around the block or climb the stairs.

“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.”
― Mark Twain

    4. Visit the gym. Check out the gyms near your office. Your employer might be able to negotiate a group discount if you and your coworkers want to work out during the day when they’re less busy.

    5. Take a class. Similarly, many fitness centers offer group classes at lunchtime designed to get employees back to work on time. An hour of cycling followed by a smoothie may give you more energy for the rest of the afternoon.

Enjoy a light and scrumptious midday meal each day of the week. Healthy lunch habits will help you lose weight and shape up.

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
― Julia Child

Voice Message

As the holidays get closer, I set setting my goals for the new year and reflect on:

1. What has been accomplished this far?

2. What was the hardest accomplishment to change?

3. What I need to do to change for a better me?

I start rejoicing in excitment; what joy’s to come. As I listen to my voice messages, there was one from a friend that past away this year.

Voice messages to me is a moment in time that one was thinking of or wanted to get a hold of you. I have not delete it because it reminds me of good times we shared. Holidays are not the same without my friend.

However, I live as if my friend was here playing video game or debuting on sports. My goal is to always stay connected with people. Yesterday has past.

Today has come to plan for tomorrow. So, what have you done to be thankful for the things you have?

Be reminded on what is yet to come.
