If I apply face product to my face, will my wudhu and prayers still be valid and accepted?


I want to know if I apply a face product to my face everyday, will my wudhu and prayers still be valid and accepted?


If the cream is considered ‘beautification’ according to custom, then it is not allowed. If it is not considered to be beautification or adornment then it is allowed.

If the cream blocks water (e.g. if it is oil-based) then it will not allow water to reach your skin and will make your Wudhu void. However, if it is water-soluble and allows water to reach your face then your Wudhu and prayers will be valid.
