This is the key to make your moisturizer stay in place the whole day
One of the biggest mysteries in living in the tropics is how to keep moisturizer intact the entire day; I have oily skin, but I still moisturize because my skin can get fried in the summer; but despite having sebum that supposedly helps keep moisturizer in place, I still experience a bit of dryness, especially on the cheeks. Augh!
So here's a technique I discovered; when I tried this, my moisturizer stayed put longer and weather permitting, the entire day; I SWEAR! You'll be surprised, it's a product that won't require you to shell out cash at all!
Ladies and gents, meet the GOOD OL' PLAIN WATER.
That's right. Water is the key to keeping your moisturizer intact.
Here's the thing; we're taught by labels to pat our face dry and apply moisturizer afterwards. However, dry skin will only repel moisture, which explains why our moisturizers tend to evaporate or run off despite how moisturizing they claim to be, leaving us at our wit's end. The missing key is water; water keeps skin in a state that's optimal for absorbing additional moisture, resulting to moisture that lasts the whole day. However, don't allow water to evaporate from your skin because that will result to dryness!
You can use tap water or better yet, leave your face a little damp after face washing then proceed to applying moisturizer. But then again, there's a barrier which is the toner; you can skip toner if you need more moisture or after toning, spritz your skin with water then moisturize asap.
Personally, I prefer using Thermal Water because of its mild formula; it has little to no minerals that may be corrosive for my succeeding skin care products.
But you know, it's just me and my vanity; plain water will do!
Hope you like this tip!
