True Or False? You Should Take A Break From Moisturizer To Let Your Skin Breathe


Absolutely false! Research indicates that the skin repairs itself most effectively at night, so washing off the day’s dirt and grime and nourishing it with a good moisturizer for your skin type will give your skin a chance to renew while you sleep. Especially in the winter when the heat is blowing on your skin at night, your skin must have protection from a cream to prevent moisture from evaporating out of the skin. As long as your night cream is free of Mineral Oil and Petrolatum, it will not suffocate the skin and clog the pores.
