It's easy to go trigger-happy while applying our skincare products, especially when there's enough product to last you weeks before having to buy a new one. We sometimes think that using more makeup makes it work faster as it becomes more effective, but this, ladies, is a myth. It's better to use the right amount so as not to saturate the skin with active ingredients and to avoid wasting product. To serve as a quick guide, we found LA-based, self-confessed makeup junkie Dana Waldie's Instagram post that explains it in a nutshell:

Dana also explains that if you're using high-quality products, a little goes a long way. To incorporate this further into your routine, master how to identify a pea-sized amount, especially for your serums and eye cream. You may also use our P1 coin as reference for your masks, face creams and moisturizers. 

We hope this tip will save you money and make your skin healthier! If you want to read more skincare tips by real women, visit Girltalk's skincare regimen forum.
