Moisturiser is that one skincare product that you would think doesn’t need a beauty tutorial or even a lot of thought. Right? Well, wrong! Are you sure you’re putting on your moisturiser correctly? And are you making the most out of it? You might have been using the product all your life but still could be missing out on its benefits solely because you’re using it wrong or not applying it properly.
Here are some tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your everyday moisturiser...
- The amount counts
- Timing is the key here
- Team it with other products
- The application technique matters
The amount counts
You don’t want to use more than you require and end up feeling greasy nor you want to miss out on areas and feel dry. The right amount of the product equals right moisture. Take an almond sized portion for face and a coin size amount for face and neck.
Timing is the key here
Applying a moisturiser at the right time could boost your skincare game. Apply moisturiser on a washed face as it instantly provides moisture skin loses in the cleansing process and damp skin absorbs the product better. Also, apply a day cream such as Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème after morning shower and a night cream as Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Night Crème only before going to bed.
Team it with other products
To get extra perks, pair your moisturiser with compatible beauty products. Layering it with face serums, sunscreen and eye cream helps your skin gets maximum benefits and healthy skin. But remember to work your way from lightest product to the thickest.
The application technique matters
Here’s a common mistake—not applying the moisturiser the right way. Take some on your palm and rub to get all on evenly. Pat the face and massage gently in a circular motion. This helps in boosting blood circulation and an even application of the product.
