The first and extremely important thing that ELLE wants you to `keep in mind` is to clean your skin before performing skin care steps.

1. Choose a cream specifically for your skin type

Skin care cream, like other beauty products, cannot be used for all skin types.

2. Apply lotion with sunscreen ingredients during the day

Sunscreen is not only essential for preventing skin aging and dangerous UV rays from the sun, but applying a layer containing SPF sunscreen also saves you time.

3. Use lotion that does NOT contain sunscreen at night

If it’s not for a special reason, you don’t need SPF at night, because its main use is to protect your skin from environmental damage.

6. Apply moisturizer evenly

7. Change cream every summer and winter if needed

Your skin’s ability to retain moisture is directly related to the climate around you.

8. Don’t use too much cream

Applying multiple layers of moisturizer is not an effective way to provide high moisture to the skin.

9. Don’t use only lotion for moisture

If your skin feels dry or dehydrated, don’t forget the benefits of alcohol-free rose water and skin care essences.

10. Don’t leave your skin bare for longer than 60 seconds after washing your face, before applying moisturizer

After washing your face, you should immediately use rose water and moisturizer.

11. Don’t be afraid of lotions containing essential oils

Don’t listen to essential oil extracts in lotions because you’re afraid it will make your skin more greasy.
