What Is Moisture Sandwich Technique? Everything You Should Know
Many trendy skincare terms come along and Moisture Sandwich is among the latest skincare buzzwords that captured our attention. This skin technique is a must-try if you have dry skin or wish to adjust your skin to the normal side.
The Moisture Sandwich process involves putting lighter and watery products on your damp skin and then layering it with something thicker. It helps to trap water for a longer duration, which results in hydrated and glowing skin. The first step should be starting off with a face mist, essence or a face serum. Later, you can trap the moisture by applying a good moisturiser that gives you a subtle glow. If you have acne-prone skin, use products that are suitable for your skin or consult a dermatologist before trying this technique.
The Moisture Sandwich technique can be applied to both face and lips, but each of them needs a slightly different approach. However, a general rule is that you should first dampen the area you intend to take care of.
Here are some of the products that you can try to perfect the Moisture Sandwich technique.
