Even high-quality cosmetics such as Gerard Cosmetics are best applied after a layer of moisturizer. Moisturizing doesn’t take a lot of time or effort. It’s pretty straightforward: You open the bottle, squeeze out some lotion, apply it liberally to your skin and you’re done, right?
In order to get the most out of your moisturizer, you need to use it correctly. Below are a few common mistakes people make when moisturizing. If you see something you do on this list, stop and begin doing it properly.
Is Your Skin is Too Dry to Apply?
Your skin can actually be too dry to apply moisturizer. Moisturizer works by locking in moisture that the skin already has, so the best time to use it is immediately after you’ve washed your face or showered. If you wait too long, your skin will dry out and there will be less moisture for the product to mingle with.
Don’t Use Moisturizer Because You Have Oily Skin?
It’s easy to make this mistake. Oily skin does not equal moist skin. When your skin dries out, it can sometimes over-produce oils in an attempt to moisturize itself. Therefore, even if you tend to have oily skin, you should still moisturize soon after you wash. If you want, you can use an oil-free moisturizer that won’t add to the problem.
Do You Neglect your Neck?
Most people tend to focus on their faces when they moisturize, and ignore their necks and upper chest areas. These areas of your body are also covered by skin, and that skin gets its fair share of sunlight. It should get its fair share of attention. After all, what’s the use of having soft, supple facial skin if your neck and chest are crisscrossed by angry wrinkles?
