Are You applying Your Skincare Products in the Right Order?
So if you’ve find the right product that works for your skin, its time to figure out how to layer them. It’s undeniably important to apply your skincare products in the right order to ensure that your skin will receive the full benefits from your skincare routine.
A good skincare routine starts with four fundamental steps : Cleanse, Treat, Moisturize, and Protect. It will be amazingly effective when done properly especially when combined with the best skincare product suitable for your skin type.
Step 1: Remove make-upRemoving make-up, dirt and grime will help prepare the skin for your skincare regimen. Use a gentle make-up remover (try our Esthederm Osmoclean High Tolerance Make-Up Remover)
to get the job done before you start the actual cleansing
Step 2: Cleanse
Be consistent! Wash your face morning and evening. Thorough cleansing is a vital part of our skincare process, not only does it help to keep skin grime free but it also prepares your face to receive more nourishment from moisturizer and other creams, serums and oils.
Step 3: Exfoliate (1-2 times per week)
Brighten and soften your skin with exfoliator, once or twice a week to remove the dead skin cells, this allow the product to penetrate better on the skin’s surface.
Step 4: Apply Toner
Toners are very useful to brighten up the skin immediately and visibly. It removes any oil, dirt or residues that remains after cleansing. It balances the skin’s PH levels and prepares your skin to absorb concentrated treatments like serums.
Step 5: Apply Serum
These targeted products are designed to improve and treat specific skin concerns. Serum is essential as it is the most potent product in your skincare routine.
Step 6: Apply Moisturizer
Moisturizer is a must (Intensive Hyaluronic range)! It keeps the skin hydrated and seals in the product you’ve applied. It sits on the surface of the skin creating a barrier that locks in moisture.
Step 7: Apply Eye Cream
The under-eye area is the most delicate part of our face and the first areas to show visible signs of aging – so it deserves its own special step in your routine. Gently tap the eye cream with your ring finger to keep the area smooth and bright!
Step 8: Apply Sun Protection
It maybe the last step, but it’s the most important part which is often gets neglected. Sun’s UV rays can cause skin damage and the main factor for skin aging. So, its vital to do this step! Always apply SPF at least 30 minutes before going out and choose a broad spectrum which block both UVA and UVB.
Get into the habit of following the above steps each day – for an effective skincare routine!
Tips: Apply your skincare product in order of consistency! Layer them by weight, from lightest to heaviest.
