Moisturizing treatments made with your homemade skin care recipes using all natural, organic ingredients are an extremely effective way to rejuvenate aging skin, cost just pennies and five minutes of your time.
Hydrated skin slows the signs of aging; much more so than skin that is not well cared for. It's vital to keep your skin well hydrated, inside and out.
Maintaining hydrated, well moisturized skin goes a long way in preventing the skin from drying and chapping which believe it or not slows the aging process.
The most obvious strategy in maintaining hydrated skin starts from the inside out by drinking plenty of fluids daily.
Then using a nutrient rich moisturizing treatment best suited for your particular skin type, both morning and night, to maintain the health of your skin.
Drinking a sufficient amount of water throughout the day helps the skin preserve a necessary moisture balance. Skin that is kept well moisturized and hydrated, inside and out, will maintain a healthy glow while remaining soft, supple, plump and younger looking.
Keeping yourself well hydrated ensures nice plump skin cells which protect the skin against excessive moisture loss which in turn gives skin cells the best defense against drying out.
Just think of it this way. . .
A grape is smooth and plump with nice, taut, firm skin-
- BUT -
If it is deprived of moisture, it will
dry out and shrivel up into a raisin, featuring extremely wrinkled, sagging and dried out skin.

Younger skin is much more resilient and typically needs less
aid in retaining
moisture and nourishment than older skin.
Although, all skin types benefit from moisturizing in order to seal in moisture as well as to condition the skin. Aging skin especially reaps the rewards from the additional nourishment that rejuvenating homemade skin care treatments can provide.
moisturizing treatments, especially for aging skin, commonly
include natural oils, honey or aloe vera. Citrus, roses,
herbs and dairy are also common skin-conditioning ingredients.
For example, citrus juice offers additional conditioning and rejuvenation properties as well as aides in preventing outbreaks of blemishes by gently exfoliating the skin.
As with any homemade skin care treatments, moisturizers are the most effective when applied to warm, damp skin. To maximize the absorption of the moisturizer, stimulate the skin cells by lightly tapping on the skin's surface after applying in an upwards, sweeping circular motion.
Many of the more effective homemade skin
care treatments for moisturizing the skin are straightforward and
quite simple to make. In fact, many of the natural oils,
which are emollients that can easily penetrate through the skin layers,
are the most popular moisturizers.
