Do you know what the number one most important thing is for maintaining healthy, youthful, and luminous skin? MOISTURE! Dry skin looks dull, lifeless, and ages at an accelerated rate. No matter your skin type, it is important to moisturize your skin 1-2 times per day. Even if you have oily skin it is important to moisturize on a daily basis because while your skin may overproduce oil, that does not mean that it is hydrated and skin needs hydration. Look for a moisturizer that has humectants that will pull moisture out of the air and lock it into your skin. Also check to ensure that your moisturizer is non-comedogenic and non-acneogenic so that it does not clog your pores.

Leading up to your shoot with Belle Boudoir, it is best not to try a new moisturizer within 1 week before the scheduled date so that you can ensure you won’t have a reaction that may be bothersome on the big day.

For suggestions on the best moisturizer for your skin, visit your local retailer and ask a skin care expert.

We can’t wait to see your beautifully hydrated skin at Belle Boudoir!
