We all need moisturizer! We all want to look younger. Moisturizer is a great way to get rid of wrinkles. Right?

Well there are other reasons to use that lovely cream on your face. It has nothing to do with vanity. A new study was done and it was found that it can help you avoid Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

If that is true. I should be set! I moisturize and lather up the lotion every time I get out of the shower!

Previous studies linked age-related issues like dementia to specific proteins that cause inflammation in your body.

This new study has found that as your skin ages, it can actually cause your immune system to release more of these proteins. So since your skin is your largest organ, it can basically flood your body with them.

So the way to avoid all of that is to moisturize more.

So in this study researchers had a group of seniors put on lotion twice a day for a month. What happened at the end of that month? It drastically reduced the amount of those proteins they had in their body.

So that is good news!

So when you get out of the shower and start your day. Remember it puts lotion on it's skin or it gets the memory loss again. Lotion up! It'll do the body good oh and your memory too.
