How To Moisturise Your Face

It is important to moisturise your face daily as part of a regular skincare routine, as this helps to keep the skin hydrated and prevents dryness. Here are some tips on how to apply moisturiser to your face.

How To Moisturise Your Face

  1. Clean your face – Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser. This will remove any dirt, oil or makeup that could be clogging your pores and allows your moisturiser to apply evenly.
  2. Apply toner – This will help to balance your skin's pH levels and prep your skin for moisturiser.
  3. Apply your moisturiser – It's time to moisturise! Take a pea-sized amount of moisturiser and massage it into your face in circular motions. Make sure to avoid the area around your eyes.
  4. Enjoy hydrated, healthy skin! – Once you've moisturised, you'll notice that your skin feels softer and smoother. Plus, it will be better able to protect itself against the environment - win-win!

When To Moisturise Your Face

Moisturising your face is an important part of a skin care routine. When to moisturise your face depends on a number of factors, including the time of day, the type of moisturiser you use and your skin type. 

Generally speaking, it is best to moisturise your face twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. 

This will help to keep your skin hydrated and prevent dryness and irritation. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may want to moisturise only once a day or every other day. And if you use a heavy moisturiser, you may want to apply it only at night so that it has time to absorb into your skin without making your face feel greasy. 

Ultimately, the best way to decide when to moisturise your face is to experiment and see what works best for you.
