Inside Scoop into Best Times to Apply Moisturiseradmin
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 skincare routine before applying makeup, so don’t forget to use a face cream or lotion before applying your Annique foundation or BB Cream.
Use a Moisturiser…When You’re 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 skincare routine consistent, including moisturising up to eight times a day, is always a good idea.
Use a Moisturiser…Before Doing Your Makeup for a Night Out
As we mentioned earlier, applying a moisturiser should be the final step in your skincare routine before you apply makeup. However, if you’re redoing your makeup for a night out—without repeating your skincare routine—it’s still important to moisturise. Using a facial moisturiser will hydrate and smooth out your skin, giving you the ideal complexion for applying your makeup look of choice. Seriously, try it!
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
