The Proper Technique To Apply Skin Care Products

The Proper Technique To Apply Skin Care Products

I have written several times about buying products that are intended for your skin type, and I have often mention the importance of using products in the correct order (like cleansers, toners, serums, treatments, and moisturizers) but it just occurred to me that some of you may be applying these items incorrectly. 

I was talking to one of my clients and she mentioned that with age, she’s developing redness on her cheeks and forehead. My first thought was that she made be developing rosacea so I asked her to send me a photo. In the photo, the red areas did not appear to be rosacea, so I asked her a few questions.

It turns out that she dots the products on her cheeks and forehead before rubbing it into her skin. Serum is highly concentrated with active ingredients. The application technique was irritating her skin. I told her the proper technique to use, and after a few days, the redness and irritation was gone.

What is the proper technique? 

When it comes to serums and moisturizers, don’t apply in dots but rather apply to your fingertips, rub together with the opposite fingertips. Then apply an even amount to face and neck using soft upward strokes.

Be sure to always purchase products that were formulated for your skin type and to follow the instructions on the package. 

Try this tip and I’m sure you will see better results!
