Did you know that there is a correct order for skincare products? Sequence matters, more than many people realize. The skin’s job is to keep things out, but with skincare products you want certain ingredients to get in. That’s why it’s important that you apply them in the correct order. A good rule of thumb is to apply thing thinnest to thickest, and liquid to oil.
Cleanser should be the first product you use. A gentle cleanser will remove the fine layer of dirt, oil, and build up on your skin so that other products can penetrate your skin.
Not everyone uses toners, but if you do apply it after you cleanse. Toners serve many purposes, with many acting as a delivery system of vitamins, antioxidants, and more.
Serums are very important for your skin. What type of serum you use should depend on your skincare needs. They provide a ton of benefits, and for the most effective use, you should apply it after you cleanse and tone your skin!
You’re never too young for eye cream. Eye cream will help maintain the health and thickness around the eye. The skin around the eye easily loses laxity and is one the first areas to wrinkle so it’s important to incorporate eye cream into your routine.
If you have any zits or spots that need treatment, do it after serums. Make sure you read the recommended practice for your spot treatment product. Some need a few hours to work so you’ll want to wait before proceeding with the rest of your skincare routine.
Moisturizer is super important. Even people with oily skin need it! It keeps your skin hydrated, which helps with sun protection, dryness, acne and more.
Sunscreen should be worn all year round, every day. It should also be the last step in your daytime skincare routine. This will keep your skin protected from harsh UV rays, which can cause wrinkles, sunspots, and cancer.
