There is no limit to how much you can perfect your beauty routine. You can continuously update it by trying 5 to 10-step routines once a while or better yet, take the time to perfect your existing routine. For instance, if you've been rubbing your facial products in all your life, we've got news for you girl! Here's why you should ALWAYS pat your products on rather than just rubbing it in!
- Doesn’t irritate the skin
- Better for your eye area
- Delivers a concentrated dose
- Minimises product wastage
- Pushes your product in deeper
Doesn’t irritate the skin
Dabbing your skin is a less irritating and more gentle way of moisturising your face. Beauty enthusiasts will tell you to always pat near the eyes because the skin is thin. But we want you to go a step further and extend that gentle touch all over the face.
Better for your eye area
Did you know that the eye area can be as thin as 0.5 mm? To give you context, it makes them as thin as the saran wrap you use to pack your lunch sandwiches in! Dabbing your moisturisers and serums should be the ONLY way to apply the product in this area. It stops you from stretching the patch of skin too much while giving it all the love without any of the nasty rubbing business!
Delivers a concentrated dose
Thick moisturisers take time to sink in and applying them in a rubbing motion will just take the product away from your face. Patting, on the other hand, delivers a more concentrated dose of the cream to your face.
Minimises product wastage
Patting the product leads to less wastage of product, and you are easing up on the aggressive rubbing. This is especially beneficial while applying serums which you are supposed to be used in lesser quantities anyway. This is also a good way to make your products last longer.
Pushes your product in deeper
A gentle patting motion helps push your product deeper into the skin rather than rubbing it on the surface. It makes sense to spend a couple of minutes dabbing your face with creams rather than hastily rubbing it and getting done in a couple of fleeting seconds. Simply put, dabbing helps you make the most of your moisturiser!
