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:
How much product is too much product??? Well.... A little dab should do errr'. When using high quality products you should only need a little bit. When you use too much product it won't fully penetrate your skin & the product just goes to waste. Ok, that's my #skintip of the evening ???? Now go give yourself a nice facial before bed using only little product. ???? . . . #skincare #skinperfection #skinperation #beautytips #beautytreatment #beautytricks #bblogger #mua #spa #dermatology
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.
