Your skin is a gem and you do need to take care of it. However, simply having a moisturizer does not cut it. This pretty much does the same thing those 6-inch heels I never wear do, nothing! So how about we get into a few tips on how to make the most out of this crucial skin regimen step.

Get the right one

Having the right moisturizer is a step in the right direction. Notice what your skin is lacking and build from there. Something I have learned over the years that has helped my particularly oily skin is to not deprive it of more moisture. Add in a moisturizer to your skin care routine that will prevent overproduction of sebum. Using drying moisturizers only worsens the oil production. Basically, more water less problems.

This should go without saying but I am ready to do extra work and let you know that you should be grabbing that bottle of moisturizer ASAP, just do it! (Yes, Nike Ad)

 Timing is Key

You want to lock in as much moisture as possible. Therefore, applying your moisturizer right after you hop out the shower (or bath, do people still take baths?) is the best thing to do. Don’t wait till your face is all dried up, tight and uncomfortable to smother it with attention. Let it be your first step and your skin will thank you and in return be subtler.

Down to the neck

Do not ignore your neck, please. It’s like the other child. You get one child a gift, don’t forget to get the other one a gift too. It’s just the right thing to do. This is the best explanation I could come up with so just believe me and go ahead and do it. Thanks!

How to apply

While there are multiple opinions as to which moisturizer strokes work, whether upwards, or downwards or a mixture of both. I am a strong believer of whatever floats your boat. I work with a mix of both, having an upward direction when applying product on my forehead, cheeks and using downward strokes on my neck area.
