Investing in quality skincare is a great first step, but if you are applying your products in the wrong order, that investment might not be paying off.
Ouch, right?! No one wants to waste money, time or great skincare products!
The order you apply your products really does matter. Using the right items in the right order actually helps them to be more effective.
Get the most out of your skincare by building a simple routine. Apply products in these 3 simple steps:
Cleansing is crucial. The rest of your products will only be effective if they are applied on a clean canvas.
Apply your cleanser and massage into skin with a small amount of water. Aim for washing your face at least 30-60 seconds to give the ingredients enough time to work their magic.
A good rule to remember is to apply your products from thinnest to thickest. So up next, it’s time to apply serums.* Serums are light-weight but highly concentrated & nutrient-dense treatments that address specific concerns.
They have smaller molecules than moisturizer, so applying them after cleansing will allow the serums to penetrate the skin at a deeper level.
*If you use a toner or face mist in your routine, apply it after cleansing and before applying serums.
Lock in much needed hydration in your final step by layering on a moisturizer. No matter if you have dry or oily skin, a moisturizer is an essential final step in any skincare routine.
It helps support healthy skin by reinforcing its protective barrier. Listen to your skin to know what kind of moisturizer works best for you.
A couple quick tips… if you are layering multiple products, take a break between each one - grab a coffee, brush your teeth and let the product soak in for a little before applying the next one.
Also, consistency is key! Commit to sticking with your 3-Step routine for several weeks. You don’t need a complicated routine - just a simple, consistent regimen will deliver fantastic results.
