One of the most important steps in any skincare routine is moisturizing. But how you apply moisturizer can be just as important as choosing the right product. Here are some tips on how to apply moisturizer the right way.
Most importantly, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This will help the moisturizer to absorb better. The best time to do this is right after showering or washing your face, while your skin is still damp.

Besides, moisturizer should be applied in upward strokes with a gentle hand. The movement allows your skin to fully absorb the moisturizer, which will increase the effectiveness of your moisturizer. It also stimulates blood flow, which helps to rejuvenate your skin cells. If you’re using more than one product with serum or essence, apply the lighter products first and the heavier ones last – this will help them absorb better. And don’t forget to moisturize your neck and chest too, not just your face! Following these tips will help you make the most of your moisturizer and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.
