As Americans we are guilty about piling day or night cream onto our skin as if we were piling on frosting to a cupcake. I have people say to me all the time “my makeup seems to slide right off or disappear” and come to find out they are using a quarter size of moisturizer before they are applying their makeup. Key rule is a DIME AMOUNT. That is the maximum amount. Apply with your fingertips and massage into all of the skin. It will be enough. It is just getting used to using less.
