Having a proper skincare is so important for your future. That's right, taking care of your skin when you are young is the most important time because it preps your skin for the older years when you will have to deal with wrinkles, laugh lines, crow's feet, and all sorts of other things that come with getting older. I believe that it is truly never too early to start a proper skincare routine. One of the most important steps in your routine is moisturizing. Keeping your skin moisturized keeps it nice, healthy, and glowing. Today I am going to be sharing with you the proper way to moisturize your skin to get the most beneficial results.

Choosing the Proper Time

Choosing the proper time to moisturize your face is so important. The best times to moisturize your face are after you shower and/or wash your face. When you do these things, it helps to open up your pores and allow that moisturizer to sink in and do what it needs to do to keep your face healthy, glowing, and looking fabulous.

Choose Your Perfect Product

One standout option to consider on your quest for radiant skin is the Beverly Hills MD Ageless Volume Hyaluronic Face Mask. This luxurious hydrating mask offers more than just surface-level moisture; it provides a rejuvenating experience that can boost elasticity and unveil a radiant complexion.

Here's a breakdown of how to use face moisturizer effectively:


  1. Cleanse your face: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. This allows the moisturizer to penetrate your skin more effectively.
  2. Exfoliate (optional): You can exfoliate 1-2 times a week to remove dead skin cells and help the moisturizer absorb better. I love Cure Gel for this purpose. 
  3. Slightly damp skin: Splash some water on your face or apply toner to create a damp base. This helps lock in moisture.

How to Really Clean Your Face


  1. Amount:  A pea-sized dollop of moisturizer is enough for your entire face. Dispense the product onto your fingertips, and warm it up slightly by rubbing your hands together.
  2. Dampen Your Skin (Optional): While not essential, applying moisturizer to slightly damp skin can help lock in moisture. Splash your face with water or use a hydrating mist before applying.
  3. Gently apply:  Use gentle pats or upward strokes to spread the moisturizer evenly across your face. Don't forget your neck and the delicate eye area (use a separate eye cream for this area).
  4. Massage it in: Use gentle, upward circular motions to massage the moisturizer into your skin. Don't rub or pull on your skin.
  5. Neck and décolletage: Don't forget your neck and décolletage! Apply the moisturizer in upward strokes in these areas as well.
  6. Wait for absorption: Allow the moisturizer to fully absorb before applying any other products like sunscreen or makeup.

Tips for Using Moisturizer

  • Morning vs. Night: You can use a lighter moisturizer in the morning and a richer moisturizer at night.
  • Sunscreen: Always wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher during the day, even on cloudy days. You can apply sunscreen after your moisturizer has been absorbed.
  • Listen to your skin: If your skin feels oily after applying moisturizer, you might be using too much or a formula that's too heavy for your skin type. Consider switching to a lighter, oil-free moisturizer. Too much moisturizer can clog pores. If your face feels greasy, you might be using too much.
  • Moisturize Multiple Times a Day: When it comes to moisturizing, it does not necessarily last on your skin all day long. This is why I highly recommend moisturizing your skin multiple times a day. I like to moisturize in the morning after cleansing my face, as well as at night after cleansing my skin again. Another bonus time to moisturize is right before you apply your makeup for the day as well because it will help to prep your face for all of the makeup you are going to apply.
  • Look for a moisturizer formulated for your skin type (dry, oily, combination, etc.).
  • Patch-test new products on a small area of your face before applying them all over.
  • Be consistent with moisturizing your face twice a day for optimal results.
