Moisturizer For Fresh Look
How much moisturizer should you use to have a fresh look?
Moisturizer should be applied to a freshly cleaned face before applying makeup. Put a dime-sized amount in your hand and smooth it all over the face. A little more can be used if the skin still feels tight or if it is not enough. The skin should feel fresh and moist but not greasy.
A light moisturizer is best for daytime use and a heavier moisturizer for night time. Lotions and moisturizers should be light consistency and soak into the skin quickly.
Water-based moisturizers soak in quick and do not leave the skin feeling greasy or oily. These are good for daytime use under makeup or alone. They help to make the skin look fresh and reduce redness and puffiness and give the makeup a good foundation. A light spritzing or misting of water on the face after moisturizing helps to keep the skin hydrated and looking fresh.
Heavier moisturizers are better for night time and should be used before going to bed. You can also apply a little under eye cream as well to keep the skin under the eyes smooth and wrinkle-free. There are many anti-aging skin care products on the market that are good for keeping the skin smooth and supple. Look for products that are water-based and light and have antioxidants to reduce the free radicals that contribute to wrinkles and aging. Products with vitamin A and vitamin E help too.
How often should you use moisturizer?
Once or twice a day is a good rule of thumb. You should use it once in the morning under makeup and once at night before bed as a minimum. You can also apply moisturizer after a bath or shower for added softness.
Moisturizer is not only for women, but men benefit from using a moisturizer also. Good skin care is for both men and women. Men often neglect their skin because they do not typically use lotion and skin care products.
