How To Apply Face Cream for Best Results

How To Apply Face Cream for Best Results

A face cream is probably the most used beauty product for lots of us and is the one item that many of will not be without. It is also something that we are prepared to invest in as we know how it can benefit our skin, so applying it effectively gets the most bang for our money. It also means helping to keep our face and neck look as great as possible, and without causing any damage to the skin during the application. At Nakin we put everything that we can into making the best natural skincare products possible with our award-winning anti-ageing skincare range. So, applying a face cream in the best way helps to further get the most out of our skincare.

Applying a face cream moisturiser properly is something that is debatable. It can seem like the simplest of tasks, but many of us wonder if there is a science to it and if it is better to pat the cream on, or to spread the cream. There is not a universal rule to applying a face cream, and if you have a method that you are happy with, then we are not suggesting that you must change it. Instead we have a guide below on the way that we believe will get the best results from a face cream, without causing any damage. This means your skin will benefit as much as possible from the technology of a face cream which will hydrate, nourish and protect skin from premature ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles. These are mainly caused by the sun, and also environmental stressors like pollution and dehydrated skin. But good face creams really help to resist signs of skin ageing as well as hydrating the skin and protecting from environmental toxins and stressors. Follow the steps below to apply the face cream in the best way possible, for glowing skin every day.

  1. First prepare skin properly using an excellent natural like our Cleansing Milk or face wash, plus natural Face Toner or Exfoliator, followed by a natural Serum and/or Face Oil.
  2. Then use an amazing natural moisturiser like our Matt Formula Face Cream for oilier skin types and Active Dew Face Cream for drier skin. Apply daily in both the morning and evening and cover both the face and neck. Our face creams do not contain sunscreen, so apply SPF on top of the face cream when going outside.
  3. Apply a large blueberry sized amount of face cream onto the fingers and then dot around the face and neck. Then begin patting the cream around the whole face and neck with the fingertips. We believe that patting a face cream around the face instead of spreading the moisturiser is preferable. It will not cause damage and has a light massage action. But some spreading in areas in an upward motion is fine. This is beneficial after patting the cream everywhere and might also be required when in a hurry.
  4. At certain times of the year such as in winter or when skin is feeling dry, then your skin may benefit from applying more face cream than usual.
  5. Take time to apply the cream to all areas of the face and neck. This is important as it means that every area will benefit. Easy areas to miss are the jawline, near the ears and the nasolabial folds. You might also want to apply the cream to the décolletage area as this is very susceptible to damage, especially from the sun.
  6. Do not apply a face cream to the eye area. The skin around eyes is thinner and more delicate than on the rest of the face and neck. So, a face cream will weigh it down, instead apply a springy hydrating natural Eye Cream.
  7. During the day also apply a broad spectrum five-star rated sunscreen.
