Skin care products usually come with necessary direction on how to use them. You should always know how much and how often to use your products. Be it cleansers, toners or moisturizers… don’t use more thana dime sized amount on your palmsUse evebless with eye creams!

Another factor that influences the product quality is where and how you store it. Humidity, sunlight, and environmental pollution affect the products and show on their performance on your skin. Skin care products should be stored in a cool, dry and hygienic place.

Clean Your Face
Make sure you wash your face before you apply your skin care products. It’s useless to put on products if there is dirt and debris in the skin pores..

Use Make-Up Remover
Instead of soap and plain water, use a good quality make-up remover to remove all your make-up before hit the sack. Going to bed with make up on your face will lead to clogged skin pores that further lead to acne inflammations and premature aging.

Avoid Layering Skin Care Products

Applying skin care products one on top of another just end up mixing their active ingredients and rendering them useless. Always apply skin care products first and top it over with a moisturizer and sunscreen.

Ideally skin care products should be applied on damp skin. This is because moist and damp skin better allow the active ingredients of the product to penetrate through the skin surface.

Just keep track of these tips and see the efficiency of your skin care products get doubled.
