Different products need various ways to achieve the best results and for the perfect coverage. Are some products not working for you but is working for someone else? Well then you may be applying it wrong! If you are planning to give the product another shot, check out these methods of application.

1. Apply a pea size amount with your fingers
Squeeze a pea size amount into the center of your palm, and then using the fingertips of the opposing hand to apply onto your face. Applying the product onto your cheek area before your chin area. Move onto your forehead and move down to my nose. Best when applying face cream or sunscreen.

2. Warm the cream using the center of your palm
This method is good for really thick cream,eg; Creme de Lar Mer. Because the cream is so thick, you should use a pea size amount or even lesser, place it into the center of your palm then rub, or pat both your palms together to “warm up the cream”. Certain creams may liquify but others may just turn a little less creamy, which allows easy application.

3. Apply 5 dots on your face and blend
In the past, many beauty consultants seem to encourage this approach of skin care application and it’s even stated on the instructions of some products. The 5 dots denote applying a small blob of cream on your two cheek area, your nose, your forehead and your chin. It is still a common skin care application technique and is used to apply a face mask.

4. Pat the cream or lotion into your face
This is a common way to apply facial toner if you don’t use a cotton pad. Pour the toner into the center of your palm and then using your fingers to lightly pat or tap into your face.

5. Press the lotion or oil into your face
If you’ve use some of the Japanese lotions, then you should be quite familiar with this technique. Pour the lotion into the center of your palm and then using the other palm, press both hands together and then continue to press the lotion into all areas of your face.

6. Massage the cream, lotion or oil into your face
This is actually an extension of any of the above methods, followed by a more intensive massage on your face. After you have pressed the oil onto my entire face then proceed to massage the oil on your cheek area, using one or two hands in an upward, outward sweeping fashion starting from your jawline to the area near your ear.
