Moisturizing the skin is a crucial step in your skincare. Whether it’s your face or your body - feeding it with moisture/hydration strengthens and nourishes skin daily. If you don’t care about moisturizing or the kind of person who can’t do without it here are 3 tips to keep in mind.
These are 3 common mistakes I’ve made when it comes to moisturizing my skin and my takeaways. These tips are mainly for the face and neck but these apply to the body as well.
It’s tempting to throw your moisturizer away if you don’t see a difference immediately. Slow down darling! You need to be patient with new products. It’ll take about 4-6 weeks to see any results.
You’re rubbing too hard! Listen, I’ve done it a time or two. It results in aggravated and damaged skin. The key here is to not tug or scrub the skin. Simply apply your moisturizer in gentle circular motions. A gentle touch will reveal effective results.
You skip moisturizing your neck. I mean, who thinks about it anyway. It feels like the main focus should be the face right? However, the neck is the extension of the face and the supporting act if you will. So take your moisturizer, sunscreen and other treatments down to your neck.
Have you made any of these mistakes? Remember, patience, gentleness and including the neck area. You got this darling. Simple steps for great success!
Have an awesome day!
