How to layer skincare products the right way?

Take a look in your cosmetic cabinet chances are you will see a bunch of products sitting there. Curating a skincare regime is not an easy task. Choosing the right product for the right time and in right proportion can be a little confusing.

A common dilemma that needs to be solved is what goes in which order and does it actually matter?

Turns out, it does!

Sequence Matters Here’s Why:

Our skin tends to absorb the products only according to its need. Applying excess product or layering the products incorrectly would prevent the skin from being able to take in what it requires.

Applying your skincare products in a proper order is of key essence. It helps ensure that your skin receives the most out of each product, and to make sure that the benefits of each of these products are obtained.

Some Quick Tips

  • Take a break! Make sure to wait a minute or two in between each product. Some of the thinner products will absorb almost immediately but the denser ones will require a second.
  • If you use a facial oil, be sure to add it after your moisturizer. Oils can penetrate moisturizers, but not vice versa.
