You already know that it’s a good idea to moisturize your face regularly to keep your skin firm and hydrated. However, there are certain tricks for timing and technique that can help you make the most of your moisturizer.
One thing to consider is the cleanliness of your face and hands. The nourishing ingredients in your moisturizer will be able to sink deeper into clean, exfoliated skin, so make sure you have just washed your face. Your hands should also be clean when you apply moisturizer – otherwise you may be spreading acne-causing bacteria!
Timing is everything when it comes to moisturizing your face. You might know that when it comes to using day cream and night cream, but the amount of time you wait after a shower to apply moisturizer also matters. You should apply your cream within three minutes of getting out of the shower or washing at the sink – this way, you can trap some of the moisture from the water under the moisturizer, making your skin even more hydrated.
Remember – skin care is twice as nice when you wear facial lotion during the day and at night. This way, you know your skin is staying hydrated and protected all the time.
