What We’re Doing Wrong
A lot of us learned how to apply skin care products from watching our mothers and while that has stayed with us in the form of super cute and cherished memories it is also an outdated form of application that does more harm than good. Have you ever applied a lotion, cream, or oil to your skin and found that a lot of it gets soaked into the palms of your hands and you don’t really see how this product is helping… that’s because the product is in your hands. There is a surprisingly easy fix to that. Are you ready for it?
Pat & Press the product into your skin with your fingers!
How it Works!
So with pressing serums, essences, moisturizers into your skin, rather than slathering it on like lotion, you are allowing for the product to become fully absorbed and for your skin to reap all of those amazing benefits of ingredients like vitamin C, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. By doing this one simple step you will immediately notice skin that is plumper and more hydrated. You will also use less product and save more money on your skin care products as you will use less and have to purchase less often. You also will save your skin from the damage of tugging against it with your palms. Tugging and rubbing can mess up the elasticity of your skin, which means you might start sagging and seeing fine lines earlier than you would naturally. Patting helps minimize the possibility of sagginess and takes less of a toll on skin over time.
Mini Skin Pampering Session
The pressing method can also double as a mini facial massage session. It’s one of those things that takes a little bit of extra time but we could all use a little me time, It’s a little moment of luxury to remind you to slow down and focus on yourself. It’s a perk that doesn’t exactly have anything to do with your skin per se, but it does add a little pampering and self-care to your regimen, which we all deserve, if you ask me.
Let me know down in the comments what you guys think! Do you pat and press now or is this something you’re going to try?
