Many of us spend hours agonizing over the right skincare products to use. And once we have them, we often overlook the application process. But it’s not just about the product! HOW you actually apply product to the skin affects the results that you can achieve. Below, I am offering a little help to my Yogis by explaining how to apply moisturizer correctly.
Did you know that when applying moisturizer to the face you shouldn’t go from the forehead in a downwards stroke? For proper application, always go upwards. And are you remembering to apply moisturizer to the neck area? Here it’s actually BENEFICIAL to move in a downward motion to clear out your lymph nodes.
Don’t worry, in my early days I used to make many of these mistakes. But after decades of research and practice, I am relieved to say that I have finally cracked the code. And I’m ready to share my secrets with you!
Here’s how to apply your moisturizer correctly:
- Clean your face thoroughly, making sure that you remove all traces of make-up.
- Pat your face dry with a towel.
- Dot the cream on your entire face. Don’t forget to include your neck.
- Wash the Sonic Face Brush with clean water, turn it on, and use one side to spread the moisturizer and massage your problem areas gently.
- Use upward strokes when applying the cream.
- Don’t forget about your lips and eye areas as well.
- Use downward strokes on your neck to encourage the drainage of toxic substances from your face.
- Finally, rub your palms together and massage your face with them.
When applying any product to your face, always consider how it is affecting not only your skin, but also the muscles and lymph nodes around the area. The results you wish to see in your face are directly related with how you treat the rest of our body.
So, the next time you are in front of the mirror, moisturizer in hand, make sure to follow the instructions I’ve shown in my video and you will be astonished at how well you can maximize the effects of your moisturizer!
