A deep hydrating cream is an absolutely essential part of any skin care routine. Skin that is properly hydrated is less likely to develop premature wrinkles and will have a brighter, more even tone. If you have been using a moisturizer for years but are not seeing an improvement in your skin, you may not be using your moisturizer correctly. Follow these simple tips to see big results and major hydration in your skin.
Apply Deep Hydrating Cream in The Correct Order
It is very important that all of your skin care products are applied in the correct order if you are going to get the maximum benefit out of each one. When it comes to your deep hydrating cream, it should go on after your light serum but before your makeup or other skin care products. If you put it on before the serum, it will block the lighter, thinner serum from penetrating your skin. If you put it on after your other products, it will not properly moisturize your skin.
Apply Moisturizer to Damp Skin
In order to get the best results out of your deep hydrating cream, it is a good idea to apply it to damp skin. This way, you not only get the hydrating power of the product itself, but your skin will also hold on to more of the moisture that is already sitting on its surface. Start your post shower or bath skin care routine immediately instead of waiting until the air in the room has already started to suck the moisture out of your skin.
Avoid Artificial Fragrances
You should always avoid choosing a moisturizing cream that is artificially scented. Although they may smell nice, they are made with harmful chemicals which actually dry out your skin rather than helping to hydrate it. If you want a particular scent to your moisturizing lotion, consider adding a drop or two of essential oil to the bottle. Not only are they a wonderful, natural option for beautiful scents but many essential oils offer additional benefits to your skin, such as antibacterial properties or extra antioxidants.
Using a deep hydrating cream should be part of your daily routine. Make sure that you apply it to damp skin and on top of any lighter weight products for best results. If you properly hydrate your skin, it will look younger and healthier for years to come.
