Knowing how and when to moisturise is just as important as the actual moisturiser you use on your face and body. Keep reading to learn the best times to incorporate moisturiser into your skin care routine – and how to apply it – for your most gorgeous looking skin yet.
Use moisturiser in the morning
Set your skin up for success by moisturising before you head out for the day. Moisturising should be the last step in your skin care routine before applying make-up, so don’t forget to use a face cream or lotion before applying your Annique foundation or BB Cream.
Use a moisturiser when you are breaking out
The first thing you may think when an unwanted breakout occurs is that you need to remove all moisture from your skin. And that’s totally the case, right? Wrong, in reality drying out your complexion won’t do you any favours! Keeping your skin care routine consistent, including moisturising up to eight times a day, is always a good idea.
Use a moisturiser…before you doing your make-up for a night out
As we mentioned earlier, applying a moisturiser should be the final step in your skin care routine, before you apply make-up for a night out – without repeating your skin care routine – it’s still important to moisturise. Using a moisturiser will hydrate and smooth out your skin, giving you the ideal complexion for applying your make-up look of choice. Seriously, try it!
How to apply your moisturiser
Press moisturiser onto your face; do not rub it in
- Pressing a moisturiser onto your face is a super gentle and non-irritating way of moisturising
- Pressing gives the skin a concentrated dose of moisturiser
- More of the moisturiser gets into your skin rather than rubbed into your hands
- Pressing pushes moisturiser ‘in’ rather than stretching your skin
There are several factors that make the area around your eyes more vulnerable.
- The skin around your eyes is extremely thin, so it is more susceptible to deterioration. As a result, it’s more prone to laxity, developing fine lines and wrinkles, becoming looser, and even thinner.
- The tissue below the eyes is naturally missing a lot of essential elements that make your skin strong-there’s very little soft tissue, like fat or muscle. Lack of those supporting elements increases the likelihood of the skin caving in.
- There is also the issue of dark circles and puffiness that can be a result of lack of sleep, diet and stress.
When it comes to restoring a youthful look, your eyes are your greatest opportunity. Whether it is wrinkles, hollowness, puffiness, or just fatigue, your eyes reveal ageing before any other part of your face.
As you age, your skin becomes thinner, especially around your eyes. You need collagen type Ill to combat this and Ampsyncol stimulates its production.
Annique’s Eye Therapy is a rich, nutritious eye cream, especially formulated for the minimising of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.

Importance of Night Cream
Night time is when skin does its maintenance work. Like the rest of the body, skin does the bulk of its repairing, restoring, and regenerating while we sleep, so night creams are focused on recovery.
The result is that night creams are often richer, thicker, or heavier than moisturisers. Night creams can also promote the production of collagen – a protein that contributes to the skin’s firmness and suppleness, thus helping to smooth wrinkles.
Day creams are primarily focused on protection and support, while night creams focused on moisture and recovery.
Annique’s night creams can be categorised as treatment products, due to the active ingredients they contain and the specific skin concerns they address. The skin is also far more susceptible to healing and absorbing nutrients from Annique skincare products as we sleep. Therefore, to ensure that you receive the full benefit from your night cream, it is strongly recommended that you use your moisturiser with your preferred night cream at night.
