From Morning to Night
While it all starts with having good skincare products, for your products to be most effective, you also need to apply them in the correct order. Your routine will depend on your skin type, and the time of day.
Whether you have a three- or nine-step routine,there’s one thing anyone can do to improve their skincare, which is to chose gentle high quality products.
Starting out Thin
A great place to begin thinking about your routine is to apply in order of texture; from thinnest to thickest, since thin products such as serums won’t be able to penetrate thicker ones like a night cream.
Three Main Steps
Cleansing — Washing your face.
Toning — Balancing the skin.
Moisturizing — Hydrating and softening the skin.
4. Apply eye creamShop Eye Care
Eye creams combat dak circles and fine lines. You can apply regular moisturizer to your under-eye area, but if you decide to use a specialized eye cream, you’ll typically want to layer it underneath moisturizer, since eye creams tend to be thinner than face moisturizers. You can also use a facial tool to apply eye cream and penetrate the skin deeper, or store it in the fridge to counteract puffiness in the morning.
5. MoisturizeShop Moisturizers
Moisturizer both hydrates skin and locks in all the other layers of product you’ve applied to make them more effective. Look for a lightweight cream for the morning, in the evening you can use a thicker night cream. Those with dry skin may want to use a cream morning and night. Consider also chosing a different body moisturizer. Body creams are usually thicker than face moisturizers because clogging pores is not as much of a concern, with thicker emollients aimed at protecting the skin.
7. Apply face oil
If you use a face oil, make sure to apply it after your other skin-care products since nothing else will be able to penetrate the oil.
