Wouldn’t it be nice to speed up the effects of that brightening lotion or hasten the drying process of your zit cream? Well what if we told you it can be done? With just a few tips and tricks, you can easily maximize the results of your products. We have outlined a few tips and tricks to help your skin absorb your products better
Tip #1: Start by exfoliating the area
Think of it this way: your skin has a protective layer of dead skin cells sitting on top of it. This is what gets in the way of your actual skin and the products you apply on it. So if you want to maximize the potential of your product, you’d have to remove that barrier. And what better way to do this than to exfoliate? So scrub away all those dead skin cells to a smoother and more accepting layer. However, remember that this is not a daily activity. You should exfoliate only once or twice a week depending on your skin’s needs. Plus when you go about it, you’d have to do it gentle enough not to damage your skin’s layers, but with enough force as to scrub the deep-seated dirt and dead skin cells off.
Tip #2: Follow the right order
You read that right, there is a proper order in an effective beauty routine and it varies depending on your skin’s needs. The rule of thumb is that you apply whatever your skin needs most. So if you feel like you could do with a little extra moisturization, then go ahead and lather on that cream. If it’s your acne that’s bothering you, then we recommend that your dab on your zit cream first. Whatever it is you apply, make sure that you understand what your body needs.
Tip #3: Apply products to damp skin
The best environment for your skin to absorb your products is when it is damp. Right after you’ve cleansed or showered is best. At this time, your skin would function like a sponge that absorbs whatever you put on it.
