Re: Does no moisturizer make your skin more moist?
Not everyone's body is the same. Some people's skin produce more oil than others. What is certain though is that when you use any type of external moisturizer it will cause the body to produce less of its own oils in responce because it doesn't need to.
Take for example during my high school years I loved the bath and body works cotton lotion or whatever it's called, I used it all the time when I was at home...when I wasn't home or not around any lotion my hands felt extremely dry and I was like I NEED it. So from using lotions all of the time my body virtually stopped producing its own oils.
If you find that your skin is dry right now it can be a combination of things... a) you just started leaving it dry so the body hasn't had time to react and produce the oils it needs. or b) you aren't eating the right foods, lots of fruits seriously help...cut out junk food and processed food.
I personally would not use any moisturizer or any beauty products in the shower unless they are all natural. I only use one product in the shower and that is burts bees natural body was which is 99.2% natural....and toms of maine deoterant. I only use the body wash a couple times a week, and I only use it on my underarms to get the deoterant off. This works great for me and my skin feels great. Water is a great cleanser by itself and I would recommend trying it :)
