Moisturizer: 5 most common mistakes The rules and tips for flawless skincare

The first clearly visible effect of a face that is not properly hydrated is that the skin immediately appears drier and more marked. That's right: the beauty routine sometimes becomes so automatic - and perhaps made in a hurry - that it is not so rare to run into some mistakes. But skin care is a fundamental aspect to be put into practice daily with the right precautions, to show off a face at the top and avoid discomfort, including couperose, dilated pores and blackheads, redness or the classic problems of a too much skin. dry, oily or sensitive. Let's start with the basics. So here are the mistakes to avoid when applying face moisturizer.

1. Choose the wrong formula

The cream is the real treatment with which to face the day or rest overnight. But which one to choose? It depends on age and needs: to prevent wrinkles, fight dark spots, counteract sagging skin or make it dull. The important thing is to apply it with circular movements, from the center to the outside of the face, without rubbing the skin too much.

 

2. Apply it without cleansing our face

Once the right product has been identified, any make-up or impurities must be well removed before applying it. The procedure requires that the skin is perfectly clean, so it is good to wash your face, cleanse it with specific products, better if not aggressive, and thoroughly purify the complexion, especially after a day of exposure to pollution, bad weather, the sun. and stress. Then you can switch to hydration once the face is dry.

 

3. Apply too much product

Also this aspect should not be underestimated because it is necessary to spread the right amount on the face to obtain effective, greater results and even in less time. In this step, a small particular precaution is necessary when the product we are about to use is in a jar: in this case, it is better to use a plastic spatula to pick it up so as not to risk contaminating the product and damaging it. At this point we can take a small dose of cream, the size of a hazelnut, heat it in our hands and apply it on the forehead, nose, chin, cheeks and neck (since it is one of the most sensitive parts of the body to aging, it must be included in hydration).

 

4. Applying it before the serum

The serum should always be applied before the moisturizer as it has a higher concentration of active ingredients which are then fixed by the moisturizer.

 

5. Using always the same moisturizer

With the passage of time and the change of season, even the skin of the face has different needs. For this reason, it is advisable to try to vary the products of the skin care routine according to these changes.
