Hi, my name is Morgan Winger. I am a master esthetician here at SkinCareRX.com. Today, I'm going to talk to you about the difference between lotions and facial moisturizers, and how to really apply them well. The first one is by Epionce, it's a light facial lotion. Lotions are more, you wanna, if you're more oily you wanna lean towards more lotion sides of things. They're just really light, they're oil-free, they don't have any harsh ingredients, just pretty basic just to keep that balance between the oil and the moisture in the skin. So with any moisturizer you wanna apply it onto the back of your hand, that way your palms don't absorb a lot of those key ingredients that you want on your face. So just apply it on the back of your hand, and then you can apply with these two fingers, and not put too much pressure on the skin. If you use that index finger, it really applies too much pressure, and it could damage any of the elastin and collagen in the skin. So just apply that one, just very lightly, and it doesn't give an oily look or fail to the skin, so people with oily skin love lotions. And then the second one if you're more dry, you want to stick to a moisturizer. This one is the Rejuvenative Moisturizer by SkinMedica. And just like I said, the back of the hand, and then use these two fingers, and I'll just apply it right over the tops and cheeks, and just like you would the other one. Go to the two fingers and go all the way around the skin. So that is the two big difference between a lotion and a moisturizer. If you're more oily, stick to a lotion, and if you're more dry, stick to a moisturizer.
