How to apply moisturizing

Moisturizers are the basic and the most important skin make up. Moisturizer is the most important substance required for the skin care. It does not only act as a cosmetic to create your beauty but it also stands as a protection to your skin. Moisturizers can be used when you walk out for a party or even as an Office Makeup. It provides moisture to the skin and no matter what is the type of your skin, you will need moisturizer to maintain its texture. Moisturizers are prepared from some formulations containing oil and water.

Method to apply moisturizer

Moisturizer should be applied with proper method to optimize its benefit. These are very simple tips but if you follow these, you will see the difference yourself.

•First of all wash your face and hands properly.
•Take moisturizer in your palms and spread it. Now apply it over the face and neck.
•Blend it thoroughly making upwards-circular motions.
•People with dry skin should apply it more than once in a day and people with oily skin should apply only once a day.
•Best time to apply the moisturizer is just after washing of skin, when it is damp. This is because when you apply moisturizer to damp skin, it locks the water in upper layers of the skin and prevents it from evaporation.
•You should use moisturizer with SPF protection during the daytime. Also at the same time do not use the same moisturizer with SPF protection, at the nighttime as it may clog your pores for long term.
•Avoid using moisturizer around the eye area because moisturizing lotion or cream is heavy for the skin around eyes, which is different from the rest of the face. Skin near eyes can become fluffy by retaining fluid. A separate eye cream should be used for that purpose.
•Do not forget to apply the moisturizer on neck. Apply it in the upward strokes.

Do I need to use an eye cream? Can my facial moisturizer work under and around my eyes just as well?


All Hormeta moisturizers can be used around the eyes. However, the skin around the eye area is a lot different than the rest of the face. There are no oil glands there, so skin tends to get dry and wrinkled. Also, the skin of the eye area is much thinner and can't absorb heavier products. A separate eye cream should be used to solve specific problems around the eye such as fine lines and dark circles.

What is my skin type and how is it determined?


Most women's skin type falls into one of six categories: dry; somewhat dry; normal; somewhat oily; oily; or combination. Skin type, which is determined by the amount of oil secretion, is hereditary. Environmental influences can tend to exacerbate conditions, but the different areas in the skin that produce oil and the amounts of oil produced are based on genetics.
