While it’s so important to moisturise, it’s even more important to know exactly the best way of applying the product – from knowing how much product is used, how it’s applied and when can make a big difference on your skin.
According to eonline, not moisturising at all might be the first step to getting it wrong.
Some people just don’t think wearing a moisturising mask or face cream is important so they choose to skip it. Others don’t wear it because they have oily skin or breakouts and think that moisturisers exacerbate the problem. Then there are those who just simply forget to put it on entirely.
Skin is 30 percent water and lipids. One of its functions is to protect its lower layers. Having hydrated skin is important because when it’s not, it can feel tight and uncomfortable and become cracked or flaky, creating fissures and leaving lower skin layers exposed to bacteria and possible infection.
Wearing face cream is important because it helps to seal in moisture with emollient ingredients and can help draw in moisture from the air with humectant properties.
Oily skin is a symptom of dehydrated skin. The skin will try to over-compensate dryness by producing more sebum.
Sebum is the waxy substance that helps keep skin protected and waterproof. Not wearing face cream because you confuse sebum with moisture or water content can keep you at risk for the negative and harmful effects of dry skin.
One way of getting the moisture balance right is by applying Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skin Care Cellular Cream Mask — a moisturising and regenerating cream mask with Apple and Cell Boost Extract to increase elasticity and resilience. Stimulates cell renewal while preventing premature ageing and counteracting fine lines.
This product has a water base and so ideal for mature, and skin with poor turgor and wrinkles.
A moisturising mask with Cell Boost Extract derived from Algae to improve the firmness of the skin and reduce the appearance of lines. Apple Extracts provide the skin with hydration and a stabilised skin barrier. The skin is protected against the harmful environmental influences with Grenoble Extract, Vitamin E and Grapeseed Oil Extract.
Use once to twice a week. Apply after cleansing, toning and application of serum or ampoule. Apply evenly onto the face, neck and décolleté. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then remove the excess with a tissue or massage remainder into the skin. Once a week, thin layer of the mask can be applied for an intense overnight treatment.
