You dip your fingers in your new moisturizer and right before you put it on your face you think, “Is there a right way to do this?” Well my friend, the answer, is YES!
You see, most people rub skincare products into their face. And while there isn’t anything wrong with this method, there are some extra benefits to PATTING.
So what is patting exactly?
Rather than rubbing product into your skin in circular motions, gently patting with your fingers helps allow the product to fully be absorbed into your skin. Not only that, it also helps to boost circulation and get the blood moving. This is an ancient Japanese technique, and if we’ve learned anything about skincare, it’s to trust the experts.
So how does one “pat”?
