How to use a moisturizing day cream correctly?

Step 3. Day Time: ÉCLAIRÉ Cellnergic Active Youth Perfection Day Cream with SPF
A daily facial moisturizer, especially with a SPF, is one of the most important things for your skin health and beauty. Moisturizer provides a protective layer from the harsh environment, while keeping your skin hydrated and moist. They lock in moisture and keep your skin looking soft and radiant. A moisturizer with a SPF, protects the skin from damaging effects of the sun or UV lights. Find a day moisturizer with a right SPF depending on the duration and extent of sun exposure and skin type. Applying your moisturizer the correct way helps you to get the most from it.
Most importantly, make sure you use a right moisturizer for your skin type. If you have dry skin, use an emolient, creamy moisturizer. If you have oily skin, use a lightweight, gel or cream moisturizer. If you have a combination skin, use a gel moisturizer on the oily areas and a creamy moisturizer on the dry areas or use a moisturizer for combination skin.
If you have an acne skin, use a gel moisturizer for acne skin on the oily/acne areas and a light creamy moisturizer on the dry areas or use a moisturizer for combination skin.
ÉCLAIRÉ Cellnergic Active Youth Perfection Day Cream is for normal to dry skin.

1. Gently clean your face and neck with facial wash or cleanser. Refer on how to properly wash your face.   

2. Then, apply the toner. Follow these steps on how to apply toner.   

3. Lightly pat the excess water off your face with a clean towel, leaving your skin damp.

4. Wash your hands thoroughly with hand soap and water, then pat your skin dry with a clean towel or hand dryer.
5. Open your moisturizer, use a clean ring finger or clean cream applicator and put little dabs of cream on your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. Don't overdo it. You only need a small dabs of moisturizer to effectively hydrate your face. Always remember to tightly close your moisturizer's container after use and store in a dry place, at room temperature, out of reach of children.

6. Beginning at your right or left cheek, gently and lightly massage the moisturizer into your skin with your fingertips in upward and outward strokes until it is fully absorbed into the skin. Continue to your chin, other cheek and forehead, then down under your nose, ensuring that every part of the skin has been covered and the moisturizer is completely absorbed.
7. Avoid the skin around the eyes when applying facial moisturizer. Getting it too close to your eyes can cause irritation. For the skin around the eyes, it is advisable to use eye cream. When applying eye cream, never rub the skin around the eyes too hard because it can cause dark circle.
