Applying Moisturizer 101

how to apply moisturizer

 

 

We all know that gravity is real {although many theorists may tell you different} because when we get out of bed every morning we firmly plant our feet on the ground. Another good way to tell gravity is real is when you notice the first sign of your skin beginning to drop. Ah to be 20 again, when your breasts are perkiest and you're not concerned about laying in the sun all day. I miss those days. I'm turning 28 in 2 weeks and here I am noticing fine lines and sagging skin. Of course, we're always our own worst critics. My mom and friends all tell me I'm crazy. But there's nothing wrong with being concerned and doing what you can to help prevent that stuff from happening sooner than necessary. 

 

When it comes to skincare, I'm constantly learning and updating my regimen. Although everyone has his or her own take on what works, I firmly believe that it's a package deal. I'm not here to tell you there is one single "best face moisturizer" out there, because they all have different goals, just like how there is no one way to keep your skin looking youthful; it's a package deal. I've said before that botox helps prevent, fillers help correct, but I've found people often focus on the medical cosmetics because it's a quick fix, and forget about the staples to healthy skin: Quality products and the way you apply is equally as important. 

 

The trick is to apply your products in an upward motion. Don't rub downwards because all you're doing is helping gravity do it's job. When I apply my day or night cream, I rub from my cheeks up to my temple, and from the bottom of my neck to the top. This helps prevent signs of aging and can keep your skin perkier for longer. I never worried about doing this when I was 18, 19, 20, even 25, and I wish I did! It's never too early to start- train your skin now.
