Maximising The Benefits From Your Moisturiser

Are you getting the most benefits from your moisturisers? If you are misapplying the product, it will not do much for your skin. 

When you know how to apply moisturiser correctly, you will give you skin a protective layer of moisture, prevent dullness and flaking, and improve your skin's hydration. Likewise, it is essential to apply facial moisturiser properly to gain most of the benefits from its anti-aging properties. 

Using Skin Moisturiser Correctly 

How do you apply skin moisturiser? If you are like many people, it is likely that you pour a small amount of moisturiser on your palm, rub your palms together and rub them over your arms and legs. You do the same for your facial moisturiser. 

Here are some of the ways to hydrate your skin better by using your favourite moisturiser. 

Buy The Right Product 

Having healthy radiant skin begins with using the right skincare products. When it comes to moisturisers, be sure to find a product that contains humectants. Humectants are ingredients that provide longer skin moisturisation. Look for a product with propylene glycol, hyaluronic acid, and glycerine, like the moisturisers from  SkinCeuticals. A moisturiser containing at least one of these humectants will be good. 

Apply Layers Strategically 

You will get more benefits from your skincare products by using products that work well together. The best way to use moisturising products is to apply them in layers. You start by applying the product with the thinnest consistency. Thus, you begin by applying a serum, then oil, and lastly, the cream. Apply sunscreen on top of your moisturising layers if you are going out and using sunscreen because this product blocks the absorption of other products. 

Keep To Your Routine 

It is all right to stay with your skincare routine even if the season changes. However, if you want to address seasonal issues with your skin, you can use thicker lotion to improve your skin condition, but otherwise, stick to the routine that works. For additional facial hydration, apply a layer of face oils or moisturising serums underneath your facial moisturiser. Good serums for winter use are those that contain rosehip, argan or jojoba oils, and hyaluronic acid. 

Proper Timing 

The best time to moisturise your skin is after washing your face or showering. However, towel-dry your skin first. Apply your moisturisers while your skin is still moist. Use upward strokes and gently massage your skin to improve circulation. 

Do Not Forget The Neck Area 

If you are using an anti-aging facial moisturiser, it does not mean that it is only for your face. Use the same for your neck, chest, as well as your hands. Remember that these areas show visible signs of aging. A facial moisturiser is effective for dark spots and wrinkles. But one thing you should remember when moisturizing – do not apply body lotion on your face. The product can clog pores and irritate your facial skin. Do not merely slather moisturisers on your skin. Try this moisturizer routine to gain their maximum benefits in keeping your skin soft, hydrated, and supple.
