Are You Moist Enough?

I learnt that a girl must do the basic three-step skincare for the face everyday without fail – cleanser, toner, and most importantly moisturizer. This is what most of the guys should learn from their female partner on taking good care of one's skin. However, for most guys, it is usually splashing with water (cleanser) and wiping with towel, and expect the water double acts as toner and moisturizer. The more health conscious guys will use tissue or handkerchief to wipe. Others may just opt for a quickie by swiping their face on the sleeve, both left and right!

Often, people care about their face more and neglect moisturizer for the skin on the rest of our bodies. This causes dry areas appearing on places such as knees, heels, and elbows because of built-up skin cells in these areas. Beneath the surface, it is important to note that healthy skin is 90% water. Therefore, it is important to keep our skin with enough moisture by applying the correct lotion and eating healthy. Getting moist doesn't mean keeping the skin sweaty or oily.


Fear not if you are starting to worry about getting dry skin, as Vaseline is unveiling its new body lotion range catering to different skin needs, with variants like Total Moisture, Healthy White, Intensive Rescue, and Aloe Cool and Fresh.

With enough moisture protection, it helps to give our skin the strength and flexibility to protect our body. This flexibility allows me to tweak my fingers, and bridging my index and little finger with ease.
