And according to experts, it all starts with what you apply on your face every day for glowing results.
“The most important part of your beauty routine every day after removing impurities is to put a protective, plumping barrier layer of plain moisturizer against your skin,” explains Dr. Jessica Krant, assistant professor of dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York. “This helps the skin protect itself from environmental damage, prevents moisture loss through evaporation, and keeps surface cells juicy and translucent to keep that glow of youth shining through when light hits your skin," she says. "It plumps up fine lines and wrinkles that can virtually disappear with the right moisturizer alone, whether it contains any fancy anti-aging ingredients or not.”
“Especially during sleep at night, the time when skin tends to dry out most, a layer of moisturizing cream can kickstart your morning with a ready-to-go glow,” adds Krant.
