Face Cream: How much should you apply?

Pollution, perspiration, use of harsh soaps, extreme temperatures, etc... in the face of these conditions, it becomes important to take care of your skin by using a moisturising cream. This care allows you to hydrate, nourish and protect the skin of your face. However, it is crucial to never overuse it, nor to use it excessively. Such is the directive that ensures you a radiant and healthy skin. Focus on the necessary amount of face cream to apply, both day and night.

Why use a face cream?

Assaulted by the cold, the sun, or even dust, the hydrolipidic film, a slight oily layer produced by the sebaceous and sweat glands, is no longer sufficient to maintain the skin's hydration and therefore requires the use of an additional care product. Thus, to maintain healthy skin, rely on a moisturising cream suitable for your skin type, a cosmetic product whose composition is inspired by that of the hydrolipidic film.

This is an emulsion composed of an aqueous phase and an oily phase. The aqueous phase helps toprovide water to the skin, while the oily phase comes to nourish the skin and strengthen the hydrolipidic film, by creating an oily layer on its surface that will retain water and prevent its evaporation. This care ensures to provide optimal hydration to the skin, prevent its dehydration by restoring the hydrolipidic film and protect it against external aggressions. Hydrating your skin with a face cream, is primarily to protect it from premature ageing, to restore its suppleness, freshness, smooth and plump appearance, and to have a healthy glow.

What quantity of moisturiser should be applied to the face?

In order to achieve the desired results, it is certainly necessary to apply the product correctly, but also to use the right amount of face moisturising cream. Indeed, this is essential to restore your skin's radiance, suppleness and the beauty you seek. Therefore, to hydrate and care for your face and neck with a cream, you only need to use an amount equivalent to the size of a hazelnut.

This amount will allow you to apply with your finger onto a clean skin and dry, a pinch of product on your forehead, one on each cheek, another on your nose, one on your chin and a final one on the neck. However, if your skin is particularly dry, you can add a little more. It is unnecessary and counterproductive to apply more. Indeed, the skin is capable of absorbing a limited amount of product. If you put too much, the excess will remain on the surface of the skin. The key is to listen to your skin and adapt the amount to your needs, your feelings.
