Everything you need to know about using moisturiser
Moisturiser is arguably the most important part of the modern grooming routine. As its name suggests, it gives your skin the moisture it needs, keeping it looking healthy for longer. Basically, use it day and night to stop your skin from getting dry and looking tired.
Not all moisturisers are the same though, and it’s good practice to find one that suits your skin and works for you. For tips on how to use it, and which is best for you, here’s everything you need to know.
How to use Moisturiser
For best results, use moisturiser both morning and night after washing your face. At the very least your face should be rinsed with water before moisturiser is applied, but ideally you should wash it with a soft, daily face wash or a more invigorating scrub on occasion. Use a pea sized amount and apply in circular motions on your cheeks, chin and upper lip and forehead. For light moisturisers apply liberally, ensuring your entire face is covered. For more intense, rich moisturisers use slightly less as they tend to be on the oily side.
Key ingredients of ADAM Moisturiser
Since the launch of our grooming collection last year, our moisturiser has developed a cult following and is loved by our ADAM regulars and GQ editors alike. Like all our products, it’s made with a unique blend of essential oils, which along with the added benefit of Hyaluronic acid, reduce the appearance of fine lines and protects against daily aggressors.
Among its essential oils, aloe vera is particularly important as it seals moisture into the skin, helping it stay hydrated for longer. Another key ingredient, coconut oil helps cleanse and treat the skin for blemishes and acne, making our moisturiser perfect for those who suffer from oily, blemish-prone skin. Elsewhere, wild pine tackles itchiness and dryness, combines with the others to stimulate the skin and protect it from everyday pollution.
Too many men overlook moisturiser as part of their daily grooming routines. Which is a shame, as they are easy to apply and are perhaps the best way to combat ageing and daily wear and tear on the skin. When applied day and night, our moisturiser helps to keep skin hydrated while also protecting it from the elements. So, whether you’re looking to use moisturiser for the first time, or upgrade your existing one, we’re here to help.
