The way we apply face creams is really important for the beauty of our skin. It determines not only how fast the active ingredients take effect, but also to what extent you will keep the freshness, radiance and youth of your face. Here are the rules.
No matter during what time of the day you apply the face cream, it must be done on clean skin. Remove any makeup, sweat, oil or dirt, wash your face with water and then freshen with lotion. That way you will allow the formula of the cream to penetrate deep through the pores and to do its job.
A very important requirement is to always apply the face cream on damp skin to seal better the water in the pores. Apply a small amount of cream. Note that bigger amount takes longer to rub in and respectively to be absorbed. It is an illusion that more cream would have more useful and rapid effect on the skin. The skin needs to absorb the formula and not become sticky.
Apply the cream strategically. Start with few small dots of cream over the middle area of the face. Spread up with slow massaging motions. Then apply some cream in the middle of the forehead and spread it above the eyebrows, in outer direction, again with massaging movements. From the middle of the eyebrows continue downwards to the eyelids with rotating movements. Go to the nose, massaging gently from above down to the nostrils. Then apply under the eyes towards the temples.
Next, it’s labial area’s turn. Apply a little of the cream over the upper lip and spread it to the cheeks. Then, place a small amount below the lower lip and massage down to the bottom of the chin.
Do not miss the neck. Put few drops of cream under the chin and spread it down on the entire skin surface until it makes an even and a fine film.
Finish with a tapotement on the entire face. It will stimulate the blood circulation and help the skin to absorb the cream faster.
