Correct Order of Skin Care Products

What IS the correct order of skin care products? Does it matter if you apply eye cream before moisturizer, or should it be the other way around? We’re here to answer all of these questions and more!

Day Time Skin Care Routine

Step 1: Cleanser

Choose a cleanser that’s designed for your skin type. For example, if you have oily and/or acne prone skin, wash your face with an acne-targeted facial cleanser such as Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash. Start by splashing your face with warm water and apply a small amount of the cleanser into your hands. Rub your face in slow, circular motions. Rinse off and pat dry.

Step 2: Toner

Again, choose a toner that’s designed for your skin type. Although toners were thought to be useless for the skin, that is not the case anymore. Toners have come a long way, and keep help balance the skin’s pH, help beauty products to better absorb into the skin, deliver nutrients to the skin, and remove any leftover dirt or debris your facial cleanser may have missed.

Step 3: Serum

A serum is a crucial part of any beauty regimen, especially for those with aging skin. Serums are generally super concentrated skin nutrients that target specific skin concerns. For daytime, you should use an antioxidant serum which protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays as well as environmental pollutants.

Step 4: Eye Cream

An eye cream is an extremely important part of any skin care routine, especially starting in your 20s. The skin around the eye is the thinnest part of the skin on your face, and therefore will start loosing elasticity first. It’s crucial that you apply a good quality eye cream every night before bed or even in the mornings to keep the skin thick and taut. Try using an eye cream with an SPF, which can further protect the delicate skin around the eyes.

Step 5: Spot Treatments

Prescription spot treatments such as a acne treatments should be applied every day. Depending on what type of treatment you’re using, it’s best to speak to your dermatologist about how exactly to apply the treatment and how often.

Step 6: Moisturizer

Applying a moisturizer is crucial, even if you have oily skin. For best results, choose a moisturizer to fit your skin type. Those with acne and oily prone skin, should opt for gel-based moisturizers. Massage the moisturizer gently into the skin in slow, circular motions. If you’ve applied a spot treatment, do not apply moisturizer on top of the treatment. Read More………..
