Do you find yourself constantly switching out products in your skincare routine? It’s high time you paid attention to the order in which you layer your products. As a rule of thumb, you should apply your products in order of consistency, from the lightest to the heaviest.
In this blog post, you’ll learn the correct order to layer your skin care products, application tips and more!
Here’s how best to layer your products to guarantee maximum results.
Whether it’s morning or night, it’s crucial to use a cleanser that suits your skin type to eliminate any dirt, oil, or bacteria that may have built up on your skin’s surface.
Here is how to properly cleanse your face;
- Squeeze the cleanser onto your palm
- Add a bit of water and rub the cleanser into your palm for at least 15 seconds until it turns into a thick foam
- Apply foam to wet face and massage for at least 60 seconds
- Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a towel
Toners provide an extra layer of cleansing for your face by removing residue of dirt and impurities while prepping your face for other products.
To apply, you can pour it on your palm and gently distribute the product by smacking it on your face. Alternatively, pour it onto a cotton pad and dab it gently across your face.
If you have serums in your skincare routine, this is when they come in. When you have to use several serums, it’s best to layer them in order of consistency, thinnest to heaviest, so they absorb better.
Most serums have droppers as applicators; it is essential to avoid touching your face with the dropper to prevent bacteria from transferring into your product.
4. Spot treatment
If you have products that target specific skin concerns, this would be the best time to apply them. For instance, if you have acne, using your benzine peroxide treatment to reduce redness and inflammation should be the next step in your routine.
Don’t forget to give your treatment time to sit before going on to the next step.
Whether you have dry, combination or oily skin, using a moisturiser suitable for your skin type can add moisture while protecting your skin.
Ensure that your hands are clean at all times, especially if you are dipping your hands into the moisturiser. The last thing you would want is to transfer bacteria to your skincare product.
Applying sunscreen is the most crucial step of your skincare routine. Aside from sealing in your products, it helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
Getting the best result from your skincare routine largely depends on the order in which you layer them. Applying your skincare product in the above order would ensure that it absorbs better and guarantees results.
