Step 2: Using the Right Amount of Cream
This is a very simple step, but is worth mentioning because you don’t want to get it wrong. Too little day cream and it could spread too thinly across your face, not perform to its potential and leave your skin feeling tight and dry. Too much, however, and it could start to feel a little thick on your face, not to mention it’s wasting precious cream, and we don’t like waste at Florena!
The right amount varies from product to product as some day creams are thicker than others, and therefore require less and vice versa for lighter creams. It is usually best to start sparingly to avoid waste, use an amount roughly the size of a 5 pence coin that evenly covers the tip of your index finger.
Once you have completed step 3 (the application), if your face still feels somewhat tight and dry, just repeat the process again. Likewise if once you have completed step 3 and your face feels a bit thick and oily, and there is still residue on your hands, you have probably used too much cream. The good news is the more you use your day cream, the more in tune with it you will become and you will quickly learn what is a good amount for your skin.
