A moisturizer is among the many products used to soften the skin, as well help in improving the skin tone and preventing or treating dry skin. However, most women did not know that it is also essential to know how to apply moisturizer to your face properly. Whether you have a normal type of skin, dry, oily, mature or sensitive one, there should be some tips to consider to make sure that your skin is getting the best that a moisturizer has to offer.
The first thing to remember on how to apply moisturizer to your face is that your skin must be damp before application. You can achieve this by simply washing your face with mild soap or facial wash first. You can also apply toner afterwards to for better moisturizing effects. Then take a pea-sized amount of moisturizer on your hand and spread together by rubbing your both palms. Now you can apply the moisturizer on your face in an upward direction. Gently massage from center going through the cheeks in small circles. You can also include the eyelids and eyebrows, but be very careful not to apply around the eyes because it might just make the eyes look puffy due to the skin’s sensitivity.
Now you know the proper way on how to apply moisturizer to your face, and after doing so, make sure that you allow at least 10 minutes before you apply makeup. This is needed to allow the moisturizer to set in and be absorbed by the skin. If in any case you might want to reapply moisturizer again during the daytime, remove your makeup first by using wet tissues or a clean damp cloth. Keep these things in mind so you can be assured that your skin is getting all the benefits of a moisturizer as you apply it to your face.
