This is the right amount of skincare product you should be using

Happy Humpday!

The middle of the week always feels like we are coming up for air to kick off the weekend.

Whenever I am applying any of my skincare toners, lotions, eye cream, etc., I am left thinking if I am using the right amount, so I did a little researching for you all and found out I have a heavy hand on most of these products.


Here’s how much product you should be using:

Body Wash

One tablespoon on a washcloth, loofah, or a pouf

Facial Exfoliants

1/2 teaspoon

Face Lotions and creams

1/3 teaspoon (use 1/2 a teaspoon in the winter), or think a quarter-sized amount to ensure youโ€™re adequately protected against harmful UV rays. For non-SPF ones, you can use a nickel-sized dollop.

Night Cream

A quarter-sized amount should do. Keep in mind that applying too much can leave you with clogged pores and breakouts, like with any heavy cream.

Face Cleansers

2/3 a teaspoon, or a dime-sized blob is your best bet

Face Toner

Stick to just a few drops, and always apply it with a cotton round, You want the round to be wet but not completely saturated, which would mean less product is absorbed.

Eye Cream

A pea size amount applied with your weakest finger. Tap a small amount above and around the eyelids as well as under the eyes. Smooth gently with an inward sweeping motion to avoid stretching the skin.


A pea-sized amount should be enough. Apply it in the palm of your hand and press the product into your skin. Don’t forget your neck


Use a quarter size for regular combination skin masks. For anti-acne clay masks use less than a quarter because of the ingredients can dry your skin then cause it to peel.


This is the one product you want to be generous with on your skin. A quarter-sized amount will likely do the trick for the face. As to the entire body, you’ll need a shot glass-worth of SPF.

Acne spot treatment

All you need is a pea-sized amount or even less to adequately absorb excess oil and pull out impurities. If your treatment goes on clear like a gel, it can be used at any time of the day.

Beautiful skin requires commitment not a miracle
