Applying Cream - Shall We Slather or Scrimp?
This took me a bit by surprise, because I developed this cream to deeply hydrate mature and dry skin, and my niece (who has beautifully healthy, youthful and normal skin) was so pleased with the sample I had given her, that she had been scrimping – using the smallest amount at a time – to make it last as long as possible.
Now, when I am testing a product on myself, I will try varying amounts to get an idea of how little or how much the skin will readily absorb. But when I am not testing – and just using a product, I tend to apply a relatively generous amount. All right, I'll be perfectly honest – I slather it on.
The Question Arises: How Much is Correct?
Because all of my skin products are developed to 'feed' the skin, the best way I can answer a question like this is to give a food-related reply, and here it is: Apply enough to where you feel your skin has had 'a sufficiency' and is neither 'drowning in product' nor 'hungering for more'.
Vitamins – Good For All Ages
It was a pleasant surprise to learn that my Multi-Vitamin Intense Care Cream can be equally effective (and desired by) a woman in her early 30's as well as a woman in her late 50's. It must be because vitamins are good for every age.
