Don't put this ALL over your face. Spot treat whiteheads only!

how much moisturizer to use

Some of us are naturally prone to using too much product. My sister, for example, somehow manages to use up every hair care/skin care product in my bathroom every time she visits. I don’t know what she’s doing in there, to be honest. If you’re using too much cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, etc., you might not be getting the results that you want. More isn’t always better, especially when it comes to acne-fighting or anti-aging skin care, which usually have powerful active ingredients. Not sure how much moisturizer to use? What about cleanser Here’s what you need:

  • Cleanser: a dime-sized amount

  • Toner: Enough to soak your cotton ball or pad lightly

  • Moisturizer: A nickel-sized amount. If you need more, you might simply require a more hydrating moisturizer. DON’T slather more moisturizer on dry skin—switch to one that’s more suited for you.

  • Serums: 1-2 drops, depending on directions. (We include the number of drops in our directions!)

  • Eye Cream: A (very small) pea-sized amount. Using too much eye cream can cause it to run into your eyes and irritate them.

  • Acne Spot Treatments: Our Drying Lotion for Whiteheads is pretty powerful. Use sparingly on affected areas; it is not meant to be used all over the face.
