If some women seem to have a natural predisposition to know how much moisturizer to use, men are often subject to guesswork when it comes to taking care of ourselves through a cream. Not too much ? Too ? How to know…
If one easily masters the art of using shaving foam, it is above all thanks to the necessary generosity that its use requires. With cosmetics, the correct dosage is required. here are some guidelines for men who are a bit lost!
A cherry tomato of facial cleanser
For your face, you need to use a cleanser designed specifically for this (not your body shower gel!!) or a simple soap whose pH is poorly balanced. The same is true when using a scrub.
The equivalent of a nice cherry tomato (yes, the one we love during a dinner-appetizer) will satisfy the most demanding in terms of quantity. Simple circular movements of small amplitudes… and that’s it!
3 or 4 drops of serum
Due to its high concentration of active ingredients, the serum very often has a very liquid consistency, comparable to water. Presented in a bottle with a pipet cap, dosing is easy. Usually 3-4 drops are enough for the entire face and neck. Unlike a surface cream that must be applied to all areas, the serum penetrates into the deep layers of the dermis.
A raspberry moisturizing cream
This is the most common treatment for men. The moisturizer has this ability to brighten the complexion in a single pass. To apply morning and evening to clean, dry skin, the equivalent of a standard-sized raspberry is needed for the face (forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, etc.) and neck.
a lychee mask
To be done once a week, the clay leave-in face mask, for example, requires a thick layer application in order to perfectly purify the skin.
Do you know the lychee? This little fruit from China will serve as an ideal reference point for you to know how much to take from the jar, before applying it to your face.
A currant for the care of your eye contour
Here is an area of the face where wrinkles and fine lines first appear in men. Anti-aging eye moisturizers are popular with men. For your ad’hoc cream, take the same size as a small currant for both eyes (goose paste, fine lines and dark circles). There is no need to apply too much at the risk of overhydrating this area where the skin is thin. This is more than enough to secure benefits. The secret ? It is not the amount that counts for this treatment, but the regularity!
And then the hazelnut?
To read our product labels, it would be necessary to «apply a hazelnut» of the product all the time. If today we try to be a bit more precise through fruit analogies, the hazelnut is still a good caliber for styling wax! It is the equivalent of a hazelnut that you will place in the palm of your hand to warm it up before modeling your hairstyle.
