From the name, you can understand that a day cream is a cream that is applied to your face during the daytime. But what does it do? Why should you apply it during the daytime?
A day cream is mainly for retaining the moisture and water of your skin. Thus it maintains a soft and smooth appearance of your skin. However, this is not the only thing a day cream does.
Day cream protects the soft and thin skin of your face from external aggression that you face daily when you go out. That’s why it is called day cream.
Some day creams come with necessary agents like anti-aging agents, anti-UV agents, and anti-pollutant agents.
In a word, a day cream is a beauty product that saves your face skin from daytime hassles and keeps it alive.
If you want to get the best out of your day cream, you should know the best way of using it.
That’s what I’m going to talk about right now. So, stay with me to know the exact way you should follow to use a day cream on your face.
The Right Method of How to Use Day Cream
Step 1- Cleanse Your Face
To receive the maximum benefit, you should apply the cream on a face free of impurities. So, at the very first step, you should cleanse the face.
Cleanse your face using a good cleanser that matches your skin. Make sure that there is no debris or impurities.
Step 2- Apply Toner and Serum
If you use toner and serum, apply those before applying the cream.
I typically suggest dampening the skin before applying the day cream. In that case, using a toner is important. Also, you can dampen the skin using a soft cloth and warm water.
Applying the serum is not an important part. If you use one, make sure that you’re using it before applying the cream. After applying serum, give it enough time to get absorbed by your skin.
Step 3- Apply the Day Cream
To apply the day cream, at first take a pea size amount on your fingertips. The amount varies. Take the amount in which you’re comfortable.
Rub the cream between your hands for a few seconds. Then, apply it to your face using a circular motion. Start from the center of your cheeks and spread towards the outside.
Cover your forehead, nose, and chin too.
Also, don’t forget to apply the cream around the neck too. This area is often neglected but shouldn’t be.
Don’t rub too much or apply too much pressure. Rub gently with appropriate pressure and make sure that the cream has covered every part of your face.
There is another way of applying day cream. Apply small spots of the cream on different parts of your face. Then, use your fingertips to distribute the cream smoothly all over your face. Use a circular motion to spread the cream.
This way is better because it helps you to apply the cream all over your face. Also, while rubbing, don’t miss the necks.
I guess now you know how to apply day cream on your face. To get the maximum benefit, using the cream properly is important.
Also, you need to focus on a few things while applying the cream. Lets’ check those.

- Store your cream somewhere where water can’t enter into it.
