The Right Way to Apply Skincare Products

The Right Way to Apply Skincare Products

Have you ever wondered why estheticians always seem to be rubbing in your skincare products? It turns out there is a method to their madness. In this blog post, we're going to explore the difference between rubbing and pressing when applying skincare products, and why one method is better than the other.Spoiler alert: it's rubbing!

The Case for Rubbing
When you rub in your skincare products, you are actually boosting circulation in your skin. This increased blood flow delivers more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, which helps them function more efficiently. Not to mention, it feels pretty good too.

The Case for Pressing
Pressing might seem like the more gentle option, but it can actually cause micro-tears in your skin. These tiny tears leave your skin vulnerable to bacteria and other environmental aggressors. So, while pressing might seem like the right thing to do, it's actually doing more harm than good.

At the end of the day, the choice between rubbing and pressing is easy. Rubbing in your skincare products is the best way to go. Not only does it feel good, but it also boosts circulation and delivers oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. So next time you're wondering whether to rub or press, remember: always go with rubbing!
