21 Best Face Creams and Moisturizers

Moisturiser

PORTION CONTROL

Put no more than a pea-sized blob on the back of your hand and only use as much as you need.

DOT YOUR MOISTURISER

Evenly across your face and blend. Avoid smoothing it out from the middle of your face as this can cause excess oil around the hairline – risking spots.

DON’T FORGET YOUR NECK

Our smartphones and tablets are speeding up premature sagging and drooping jowls, causing ’tech-neck’ as we’re constantly looking down to send a message or check Facebook.

TO FIRM AND TONE THE JAWLINE,

Bend your index- between your knuckles. Glide along your jawline up towards your ears in a sweeping motion, then repeat a few times.

Serum

PORTION CONTROL

To get your money’s worth from your product, use just a few drops or one pump.

SERUMS ARE FULL OF SUPERCHARGED INGREDIENTS

And that’s why they cost more than other products. They are designed to absorb into your skin in ways everyday moisturisers can’t.

DAMP SKIN IS BETTER…

it’s a whopping 10 times more permeable than dry skin. To get the best from your serum, apply it to moist skin, which will allow it to penetrate your skin even deeper.

A GOOD SERUM

Should sink into your skin quickly. If it lingers and leaves a residue, then it’s not doing its job properly.

Toner

PORTION CONTROL

Drench two standard-sized cotton pads. ‘Fifteen per cent of make-up is left behind after cleansing,’ says skincare expert Fiona Brackenbury. ‘If your skin isn’t totally clean it stops anything you apply from absorbing effectively.’ That moisturiser you’ve spent a small fortune on.

TONER REMOVES IMPURITIES

That have stubbornly hung about on your skin after washing with a cleanser. Saturate two cotton pads with toner and sweep over your face, neck and décolletage at night to complete your cleansing, and again in the morning to remove sebum and balance your skin’s pH.
