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.”

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?

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.

I am Healthy, Whole, and Complete

I am healthy, whole, and complete.

I am enough just as I am. It is a beautiful feeling to know that I am enough. I am free of the need to prove anything to myself or to anyone else.

I confidently greet each day as it arrives with a smile on my face. Everyone that crosses my path is amazed by my attitude and warmth.

Though I am continuously working to improve myself, I am very content as I am. I am interested in fully understanding all of my talents. I want to know my full potential.

I associate only with kind and supportive people who help me to feel good about myself.

I am enough. I have enough. I do enough each day to satisfy myself and to help make the world a better place.

I am a unique individual. I am one of a kind. My unique attributes are a big part of what makes me special.

67399400_10101733734983301_7790773841164238848_o

I love these parts of me. I allow the world to see them. I magnify them, because they are uniquely me. I serve as a model of a healthy, whole, and complete person.

I was born complete. I am complete. I have always been complete. Anytime I feel that I am insufficient, I remind myself that completeness is my very nature. It is everyone’s nature.

Today, I enjoy just being myself. I marvel at the person I have always been. I feel vibrant and full of health. I am healthy, whole, and complete.
