Correct application of our moisturizing face cream is important but often taken as granted.
Unfortunately there are mistakes that if we don't correct, tend to become bad habbits for a long time in our beauty routine. Here is a hands on quick guide to correct application in 6 easy steps !
It is important to start off, having your hands and face clean. Use a propper cleanser or soap for your skin type. Use it with lukewarm water, rinse it with cold water and wait a little until dry.
SERUM & TONER APPLICATION
If a serum or toner is a part of your beauty routine, this is the time to apply it.
Skin around your eyes is more sensitive and has special needs. Most of the times it is recommended to use a specialized eye cream on this skin area. Apply a small bit of your eye cream but be careful not to push ot pull your skin. Just apply cream smoothly and gently.
FACE CREAM APPLICATION
Sometimes less is more. You must have in mind that using a larger than needed amount of cream will not affect the result. Apply several small dabs of cream, like small dots, all around your forehead, cheeks and neck, excluding the delicate eye area that we treated previously. Be sure you won't forget the neck area, which we often neglect.
WORK THE CREAM ON YOUR SKIN
Start to gently massage the cream into your skin. Do not make large movements. Move your fingers slowly, with a small circular motion, always dragging your skin upwards, never downwards (gravity is a bitch), especially on the neck area. Avoid pulling violently, just use a delicate power. If you feel like there is more cream needed in some area feel free to add a bit more.
WAIT & PROCEED TO YOUR MAKE UP
After application give a little time for your skin to absorb your moisturizing cream. Five minutes will usually be enough.
Investing a few minutes everyday into following these 6 easy steps will assure you gain the best out of your face cream and make it as effective as it can get.
The results will pay you off. Then you can go on to be absolutely beautyful and amazing as usual :)
