There is actually an art to applying facial moisturizer.  When you put on facial moisturizer it makes a difference how you do it.  Just remember that no matter what the marketing says there is no magic moisturizer that is going to turn the clock back 20 years.  I recently made a quick video for Gerri on Facebook on how to apply moisturizer and now I want to share it with you.

The “Do Nots” of Applying Facial Moisturizer

1 – Don’t rub the moisturizer on your skin.  The skin’s surface is delicate and you do not want to damage it.

2 – Don’t slide your fingers downward on your skin.

The Do’s of Applying Facial Moisturizer

1 – Place your moisturizer on your palms and gently rub it to warm it up to body temperature.  It makes it easier for the skin to absorb.

2 – Place the moisturizer on the forehead, cheeks and chin.  Gently push the moisturizer in, about 5 times in one area and then move to another area.

3 – Place the remaining moisturizer on delicate areas around the eyes and mouth.  Very gently push the moisturizer in.
