Guys and girls Skin Nourishing is probably one of the most common phrases in beauty world. You know the dictionary defines the word 'nourish' as 'sustain with food; cherish nurse'.
Just as our body must be nourished with appropriate food elements, in the same way our skin also requires sustenance and must be 'fed'.
But most of us, nourishing means the application of cream and the ritual is performed by many as part of their night-care routine.
However, beauty techniques today lay a great deal of emphasis, not only on methods of nourishing, but also on the nature of the product that is used. The individual characteristics of the skin determines the best way of providing nourishment.
