The best way to apply skin creams and moisturizers

Have you ever wondered if there is a right way to apply your topical skin creams, serums, and moisturizers?  There really isn’t a wrong way but the best way to do it is with gentle, circular motions.

Nature has a thing with circles – have you noticed?  From flowers, to fruits, and even the plants of our solar system there is symmetry and circular form.  Applying this theory to your topical skin care applications is a philosophy that Madame Spillmann began teaching her clients in Switzerland over 70 years ago.  This massage provides warmth and increases blood flow to the skin helping to achieve a proper pH balance, moisture and overall healthy skin.

Start by dabbing a small pearl sized amount of product onto to the middle of the forehead, rubbing gently in a clockwise motion and gradually expanding the diameter of your circle until you have allowed the skin to absorb all of the product.  Next, following the clockwise circle, apply more product to the apple of your cheek, followed by the chin and next the other cheek.  Use circular massage on your neck, arms and legs as well.  Remember to gently massage the skin, pressing too hard or deep can cause redness and irritation.

  • Skin tension and elasticity recovery
  • Improved blood flow to the skin
  • Natural cleansing, exfoliation of dead skin cells
