Dermatologists would recommend gently cleansing your face first to ensure the skin is ready to absorb the cream. Apply in the morning and evening to your face and neck. While this is a more luxurious cream, it still makes an excellent base for makeup, particularly for drier skin. Allow it to fully absorb into your skin before starting your make up routine.
