Then, you need to choose the best after knowing your skin type and the ingredients used in a moisturizing cream. Look whether the jar contains the words humectants as ingredients, which is an essential component for keeping your skin hydrated for a long time.

Timing is essential when using moisturizers. For example, when you wash your face or take a shower, you will want to keep the moisture locked into your beautiful skin. Then, when your skin is too wet, the moisturizer will slip. Therefore, you should apply the moisturizer when your skin is moist but after a couple of minutes after you have washed your face or taken a bath. After taking a shower, dry your face and body with a soft towel. Once done, you should apply the moisturizer using gentle upward movements of your fingers. Make sure you apply the cream or lotion evenly on your face for the best outcome.

3. Layer the cream strategically 

You will get the best results out of your moisturizer when you know how to layer the cream tactically. Start with the thinnest consistency potion and then use the heaviest. Use serums first and then work your way to oils and finally to creams. The only exception to the rule is your sunscreen that you must apply last. The skin care experts in the industry recommend using SPF after you have applied cream or lotion because SPF obstructs skin absorption. You will like your moisturizer and its ingredients to go deeper into your skin.
