What's the best way to apply moisturizer? Dry the face completely after washing it then apply the moisturizer. Or leave a thin layer of water on the face then apply the moisturizer. I find that if I dry my face completely my skin gets really dry in about a minute so I'm applying the moisturizer to dry, flakey skin. But I'm afraid that if I leave a thin layer of water on my face it will interfere with the moisturizer absorbing into my skin.

What he said, lol. However to answer your question, there's no issue with some water left on your face. It actually absorbs better when your skin is a little wet...it DOES take more time to absorb, but you'll get more moisturization.

yeah, when your skin is totally dry, moisturizer doesn't absorb very well. Moisturizer absorbs best when yourface is moist/wet from cleansing.
