“Patting” Skincare Technique
Patting or tapping on your skincare products into your skin is a technique used in Asia that dates back to 1320. “Patting” allows your moisturizer, cleanser, or serums to penetrate the skin deeply. Skincare enthusiasts swear by this method, claiming that it stimulates blood flow to aid cell rejuvenation, assists with lymphatic drainage, and causes muscles in the face to tone and firm. How do you do it? It’s simple. Use the flat pad of your fingertips to press your skincare product onto your skin and hold it before moving on to other areas.
