The right order to apply your skincare products

Although I am sharing a lot of beauty tricks on here and these little hacks have a huge impact in no time. I firmly believe healthy glowing skin is the best base for any makeup application. 

It is never too late or too early to improve your skin condition or to start a skincare routine. Yes, it might take a few weeks for some treatments even months before you can see major improvements, but the results will come. The key to getting the skin you always wanted is consistency and a few extra minutes in the morning and evening to apply your skincare products.

 

With so many creams and serums, it can get quite confusing when to apply which product. Generally speaking, the rule is you apply your skincare products from the thinnest to the thickest.


Morning Skincare Routine

1. Cleanser

Always start by cleaning removing any leftovers from your skin to start with an oil-free clean skin. Only then your skin care products can sink into your skin.

 

2. Toner

A Toner acts as a primer for the following skin care products. By using a toner the other skin care products absorb much better into the skin. Choose a toner according to your skin needs and your skin type.

 

3. Serums

Serums are highly concentrated skin care products and therefore, a real booster to improve your skin condition. 

 

4.  Eye Cream

If you use an eye cream, this is the best time to apply it. Usually, eye creams have a thinner consistency than face creams, that's why you should apply them first.

 

5. Spot Treatments

This is an optional step for special skin concerns like pimples, dark spots or even scarring. By using them before your face cream they sink better into your skin to work their magic.

 

6. Moisturiser

A Moisturiser hydrates your skin but also locks in the products underneath so that they sink into your skin even better. If you applied spot treatments, don't apply the moisturiser on top only around them.

 

7. Face Oils

Face oils are the seal for your skin as they are occlusive. So for those of you who want to make sure that their skin care products don't evaporate quickly. Seal them in with face oil.

 

8. Sunscreen

Never skip this step. Sunscreen is the best and most important anti-agent product. It protects you from sun damage, which leads to premature skin ageing, dark spots and loose skin. Therefore, you apply it as the last step as a protective layer for the day.

Evening Skincare Routine

 

Just repeat steps 1-7 from the morning skincare routine.
