A Visual Guide To How Much Skincare Product You Should Actually Use


Size does matter – especially when it comes to skincare. Contrary to popular belief, simply slapping on more of your favourite products will not make it more effective. In fact, with certain items like eye cream, it could be making things worse. Since the lower eyelid skin is so thin and delicate, the area can become itchy or puffy if active ingredients are over applied.

We’re big fans of skincare here at PretAirporter HQ (especially at duty free prices), and we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your daily routine. So we’ve put together a print-out-and-keep guide to help you remember exactly how much of that WASO moisturiser or Kiehl’s mask you should be using. Enjoy.
