I'm going to show you how to apply moisturizer. Now, moisturizing the skin is really important because it's subject to so much from the wind, the sun, and pollution, so it's important to put some hydration and nutrients back, and give it some protection, too. Now firstly, I always recommend using natural products, because ingredients from nature are kinder to skin and they can have the most amazing effects, too.
And buy organic where possible, because these have less pesticide residues and they're also richer in nutrients. Now, your body can be divided into three areas for moisturizing. There's the face and neck, hands and feet, and the rest of the body.
And each area has different needs, but for each area, try not to apply too much product because it still needs to breathe and function. And use one that glides easily on skin, so you don't cause any damage. Now, the best time to apply moisturizer is after you've cleansed skin and after bathing, because it's warm, so it absorbs more moisture and more nutrients.
Now for the face, I recommend a really good antioxidant product, which is for the neck as well. And simply put it onto your fingertips, dab over the skin on the face and neck, before smoothing in with your fingertip pads, in upwards and outwards movements. And for your hands and feet, they tend to get much drier, because they are used so much.
So I recommend a richer product, and simply apply and smooth over with your hands. Hands and feet tend to need moisturizing in the morning and night, but for the rest of the body, I would only do it once a day. The rest of the body's not quite as needy, as well, because it's covered up a lot more.
So I recommend a nutrient-rich lotion, which goes in a lot easier. And it's non-greasy under the clothes. And simply smooth into skin, using your full hand.
And there you should be moisturized beautifully from top to toe. .
