Let me ask you a question. What is the first question you ask yourself when you wake up in the morning? Let’s be honest. It’s either “What should I have for breakfast?” or “What lipstick shade should I rock today?” But in fact, there are more important questions you should be asking yourself every day. They are: “How's my skin today?”, “Is my skin dry today?” No matter how many times you ask yourself, it’s never enough. Moisture, moisture, moisture is what you should never forget. Dry skin will never do good for you and more moisture can never harm you. Remember that the more hydrated your skin is, the more your skin will look healthy and glowy.
