The corrective cream is applied after carefully cleansing the skin. Like a day cream, we spread the cream down to the neck to avoid the demarcation . Use a dab of cream with your fingertips on the 5 points of the face (chin, forehead, nose, cheeks). Then, gently spread from the center to the outside of the face and let the magic work.
