Moisturising: Are You Doing It Right?

Skin Repair Moisturiser

Posted by Liz Earle Beauty Co. June 15, 2017 | 2 min read

Moisturising isn’t rocket science but it is skin science and an integral part of your daily 3-step routine. By making a few tweaks to your application techniques, you could notice a real difference in the results.

Say bye to dry
To lock in hydration before any excess water evaporates, apply your moisturiser while your skin is still slightly damp, rather than dry – so directly after Cleanse & Polish™ and Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic.

Start smooth
Getting the glow isn’t easy if you have dead skin cells piling up. To help your moisturiser sink in, buff away the dead skin cells by using Gentle Face Exfoliator 2-3 times a week.

Go a little further
Your neck is one of the first places to start showing the signs of ageing, so don’t leave it out – apply your moisturiser to this area by pressing firmly into skin, rather than rubbing. As an additional step, introduce Superskin™ Bust & Neck Treatment to your routine.

Oily? This one’s for you
It’s a common misconception that moisturising will make oily skin oilier, as it can actually help to balance – our non-greasy Skin Repair™ Light Moisturiser was specifically designed for combination/oily skin types and absorbs easily.

Less is often more
“How much product should I use?” is a common question we receive through our Customer Centre – when it comes to moisturiser, we recommend an almond-sized amount. Read more tips here.
