Not only is it good to moisturize your face every day, but it’s also recommended. Most experts and dermatologists agree that moisturizing your face twice a day is best. This helps your skin maintain a nice barrier of moisture throughout both the day and night.
Make Sure You’re Using The Right Moisturizer For Your Skin Type
Most people think that they are moisturizing their face too much because they suddenly notice that their skin looks oily or they have breakouts. This is also common if you have oily skin and use a moisturizer that has an oil base, or a lot of oil in it. These moisturizers are intended for people with dry skin and will make acne prone skin breakout. Make sure that you’re using the right product for your skin type.
A Little Goes A Long Way
Using too much moisturizer can also be a disaster. It can make your skin oily, and more likely to break out. Using too much moisturizer also means that you’re going to have to wait longer for it to absorb into your skin if it does. If it doesn’t and you don’t realize it, makeup application can be a mess.
Moisturize After Washing your Face
You don’t want to wait until your skin feels irritated because it’s so dry to add moisturizer. This will make your skin feel better for a short time, but it won’t help you for twelve hours as you want it to.
Instead, your moisturizer should be a part of your overall skincare routine. Typically, it goes on last. If all you do is wash your face and moisturize, make sure that you pat your face dry. It’s fine if it’s a little damp. Then, apply moisturizer to your face. It will help lock in the hydration and create a barrier to keep the hydration there.
