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
