- Your skin will become dehydrated, thus producing a flaky texture.
- Without a moisturiser, your skin will lose many of its necessary nutrients.
- A lack of moisturiser will worsen your acne.
- Redness, scratches, and dryness are more likely to appear.
- For some people, a lack of moisturiser will result in itching.
