How to Layer Your Skincare Products
We’re often asked how to layer products to achieve maximum skincare benefits. And while your routine should cater to your specific skin needs, there are some general rules of thumb for getting the most out of your regimen.
Cleansing is the First (And Most Important!) Step
Identify your most important skincare issue, and find a cleanser that not only removes grime and makeup, but also nourishes your specific skin type and concerns. For example, dull and uneven skin tone calls for a cleanser that contains brightening ingredients like vitamin C and nourishing botanical extracts. Or, if your skin is dry or sensitive, use an oil- or jelly-based cleanser to soothe and balance the skin.
This step clears away dead skin cells and sebum that naturally accumulates over time on the skin’s surface. Choose a product that formulated to gently detox, purify and refine the texture of the skin.
Preparative treatment lotions should be applied first before your skincare routine to maximize skin’s moisture for fresher, smoother, firmer skin.Apply your products in order from the most light and thin to creamier and thicker.
The best serums contain high concentration and blends of these research-proven ingredients. Serums should apply easily and feel lightweight, even though the formula is packed with the best of the best. A great serum will be compatible with your moisturizer, complementing its benefits rather than competing with them.
Gently tap a small amount of product around your eye area and orbital bone with the pad of your ring finger. This area is extra sensitive so you want to be as gentle as possible.
Seal it all in to keep skin hydrated, moisturized and glowing.
Apply a facial oil on top of your moisturizer. If you place the oil on first, it will act as a barrier and block the beneficial ingredients of your moisturizer. Our two treatment oils feature some of nature’s most nutritious and effective ingredients.
Maximize Your Time
Good skincare takes time, but it’s nice to remember that even a luxurious regimen can still be efficient!
You can cleanse and gently exfoliate by simply adding a washcloth to your cleansing ritual. Waiting for your serum to sink in? That’s a good time to tap eye cream around your orbital bone. Maybe while your eye treatment is working, you can start on your lip treatment regimen. By the time that’s finished, your skin will likely be ready for your next serum or moisturizer.
