Everyone wants glowing, hydrated skin.

But how do you get it? The answer lies in face moisturizers. 

Face moisturizers are essential for maintaining a healthy complexion and keeping skin looking hydrated and radiant. Here’s what you need to know about how to pick the right face moisturizer and apply it correctly so that your skin is glowing and healthy. In this blog post, we will teach you the right way to apply moisturizer for beautiful, hydrated skin.

The nightmare of dry skin

Do you have dry skin? It can be a nightmare. It can cause your skin to look dull and flaky and make it feel tight and uncomfortable. The good news is that there is an easy solution – moisturizer!

Do you wish your skin looked a bit more glowy? If so, moisturizer is the answer! Moisturizing is essential for keeping your skin looking young and healthy. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

It’s never too late to start using moisturizer, no matter what your age may be! The importance of moisturizing can’t be overstated, as moisturizers hydrate and nourish the skin, thereby combating the dryness that comes with aging. 

Choosing the Right Face Moisturizer

The first step in getting beautiful, glowing skin is choosing the right face moisturizer for your unique needs. Not all face moisturizers are created equal; some are formulated for oily or combination skin, while others are designed for dry or sensitive skin types.

If you’re unsure about which type of moisturizer is best for your needs, consult a dermatologist or skincare expert who can help you choose the best product for your individual needs.

Application Technique

Once you’ve chosen the right face moisturizer for your skin type, it’s time to apply it! Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser and patting it dry with a soft towel.

Then, apply a dime-sized amount of moisturizer to your forehead and cheeks and massage it into your skin using gentle circular motions until it is completely absorbed.

Finally, finish up by applying an eye cream around the delicate eye area to keep wrinkles at bay.

When Should You Apply Moisturizer?

The best time to apply moisturizer is right after you shower or clean your face. This ensures that any moisture your skin has absorbed from the water won’t evaporate too quickly. Applying it while your skin is still damp will also help seal in that moisture, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth all day long.

Where Should You Apply Moisturizer?

Start by applying it to your face and neck, then work your way down to your chest and arms (don’t forget those elbows!). You can also use a heavier moisturizing cream on areas like the hands and feet that tend to be drier than other parts of the body. Make sure you cover all areas evenly so that your skin stays hydrated throughout the day!

What Type of Moisturizer Should You Use?

In order for your skincare routine to be effective throughout the year, it’s important that you adjust according to seasonality. For example, in colder climates during the winter, you’ll want to use a heavier cream-based moisturizer as it will help protect against windburn and harsh temperatures better than lighter formulas would be able to.

In warmer climates during summertime, however, opt for light gel-based formulas that won’t clog pores or weigh down on hot days while still providing enough hydration without feeling too heavy on the skin’s surface.

Those with dry skin should look for products that contain ceramides or hyaluronic acid – these ingredients help lock in moisture and give skin a healthy glow.

If you have oily or combination skin, opt for oil-free formulas that won’t clog pores and leave your face greasy-looking.

Finally, if you have sensitive skin, make sure to choose a hypoallergenic product specifically formulated for sensitive types of skin.

How Much Should I Use?

When it comes to applying moisturizers, it’s better to start with a small amount and build up as needed. Too much product could actually clog pores or lead to breakouts, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin.  A little goes a long way when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated! 

The summary of face moisturizers

Moisturizing is an essential part of any skincare routine. It’s never too late to start using a good quality moisturizer—it can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and give you a beautiful glow.

Just remember: apply immediately after showering or bathing, start from the top of your body and work down, use heavier products in the wintertime and lighter ones in the summer months, and use only as much as necessary.

By carefully choosing the best product for your skin type and using gentle yet effective application techniques, you can get that beautiful complexion you’ve been dreaming of! With this routine in place, you’ll soon be seeing great results!

Final note

Taking care of our faces is incredibly important – especially when we want them looking their best! By using the right type of moisturizer and applying it correctly every day, we can help keep our complexions looking beautiful at any age.

In addition to helping us look great on the outside, regular moisturizing helps us feel great on the inside too – after all, taking care of our bodies is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

So go ahead and treat yourself to some extra pampering today – amazing results are guaranteed when you follow these steps for glowing, hydrated skin.

Good luck on achieving that perfect glow!

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
