How To Apply Perfume & Make It Last
Most perfume bottles come with a spritzer, so you can simply spray a little product onto your skin. However, to get the most out of your perfume and keep your scent going all day long, experts say it helps to do a little more than that. First of all, always be sure to apply your perfume to areas of your skin that are exposed to the air, not under your clothes where the scent won’t breathe as well. If you’ve always wanted to know where to spray perfume, wonder no longer! Experts say to target the pulse points of your neck, your wrists, and/or your inner elbows. Want to know how to make perfume last longer? Applying a moisturizer before your perfume isn’t a bad idea, since perfume won’t last as long on dry skin. You can also try applying your perfume to damp skin, such as after a shower. Just be sure to give it time to dry! Whether you choose to spritz or prefer to dab on your perfume using your fingers, experts say that you need to be careful not to rub. This is because rubbing causes friction, which heats up your skin and could subtly change the way your perfume smells.
