Tips for Applying Nivea Neutrogena Moisturizers to Your Face
If you have a jar of moisturizer sitting on your bathroom counter, then you at least know it is important to moisturize your skin. But, if you are not applying the moisturizer correctly, it is not doing you any good no matter how many times you use it a day. Below, we will go over how to properly apply your moisturizer so that you can get the most out of it.
1. Choose the Right Moisturizer FIRST
If you are not using the right one, then you are not doing yourself any good in the first place. When it comes to the type you choose, you need to choose one that is actually going to moisturize your skin and leave it feeling hydrated.
In addition, consider whether or not you want an SPF included in your moisturizer as well. It is important that you look at all of the ingredients of the moisturizer before settling on it.
2. Start at Your Forehead
When you are ready to apply the moisturizer, start at your forehead and move upwards and across the top of your eyebrows. You want to make sure you cover this area well as it is the beginning of the “T” zone, which is commonly where acne begins.
3. Finish the T Zone
Now you want to finish up with the T one and apply moisturizer underneath your eyes, down your nose, and across your cheeks. Do not over moisturize the area and a small dab should be enough to cover each section of skin.
Always rub the moisturizer in so that your skin is not left greasy and oily as this will do you no good in the long run.
4. Finish the Rest of Your Face
Now that you have covered the primary zone of your face, you want to use a small amount of moisturizer and get the rest of your face including any areas of fine lines, your chin, near your jaw line, and even the top of your forehead. Remember to rub the moisturizer in all the way to prevent greasy skin.
More Tips for Apply Moisturizers
When it comes time to use your moisturizer in conjunction with your other makeup products, it is best to start with the thinnest formula first and then work your way up to the heaviest products. Therefore, you may start with an acne spot treatment then move on to your moisturizer, then concealer or foundation.
When you are ready to apply your foundation or concealer, wait until the moisturizer is blended in and dry, otherwise, your powder formulas may stick to the wet moisturizer and leave streaks or uneven colour all over your face.
On a final note, when you apply your makeup and moisturizer, make sure that you are using gentle massaging strokes so that you do not tear or injure any of the skin on your face. This is especially true when you are working near or around your eyes.
