In case you didn’t know, the order you apply your skincare products does matter, for several reasons. The main reason is to make sure that the active ingredients in each product work as effectively as possible. We’ll break it down for you here.
Keep in mind, if you are a man who wears cosmetics or bronzer, such as BB cream or CC cream, the first step is to make sure you remove your makeup using a makeup remover.
Step 1: Cleansing
Washing your face is the first step. Use a face wash rich in vitamins and ensures a deep clean without over drying your skin. Ideally, you should be washing your face twice per day- in the morning and bedtime.
Step 2: Serum
It's now time for the serum. Even though it is an important part of the regimen, this step is frequently overlooked. A serum is intended to improve the texture and appearance of your skin. Depending on the active ingredients, most serums will brighten your skin tone, fade dark spots, and ease fine lines & wrinkles. It is a true skin booster that should be used every day.
Step 3: Eye Cream
The eye contour is a region that should be hydrated on a regular basis. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive, it dehydrates faster due to fewer sebaceous glands, and it marks more easily. As a result, it needs the use of a specialized care product.
Step 4: Moisturizer
Your next step is to moisturize. You should pick a moisturizer based on the needs of the skin. Some moisturizers provide a matte finish that prevents shine, making them perfect for oily and combination skin. There are also more nourishing and thicker creams that are ideal for use before going to bed to ensure that the skin absorbs all of the active ingredients it needs. These are most ideal for those with dry skin.
Step 5: Sunscreen
Your final step is to always apply sunscreen during the day. We recommend a SPF 50!
A routine is made to be followed carefully in order to see the expected effects quickly. Follow this order with the right products and you’ll see outstanding results in no time.
