Ok. You’ve bought all the skin care products for your beauty routine such as, cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer. But have you ever stooped to think that how you apply these products is just as important as the items as well? You may have the best skin care products but if you are applying them in the wrong order then you will not receive the full benefits of the products and your skin will not be so gorgeous. Here’s the correct order to apply your skin care products:
Step 1: Cleanser
This is the first and yet the most important step that you should never avoid because clean skin is healthy skin. Use a gentle cleanser, according to your skin type. It will cleanse your skin from dirt, oils and makeup and will not strip skin’s natural moisture.
Step 2: Toner or essences
After the cleanser, you should continue with the toner. Many people skip this step but toners are formulated to restore the Ph levels on the skin and have anti-aging benefits.
Step 3: Serum or spot treatment
The serums are usually thin in texture and go first because they need to be applied as close to the skin as possible to maximize their benefits. It is very important to wait at least 5 minutes before layering on your next product so that the serum has a time to absorb into the skin.
Step 4: Eye cream or Eye serum
The skin under your eyes is very thin and gentle and needs an extra treatment. That’s why always apply the eye cream before the moisturizer.
Step 5: Moisturizer
Hydrated and moisturized skin is a healthy and beautiful skin. The moisturizer acts like a protective barrier and fights wrinkles and blemishes. Choose the moisturizer according to your skin type and change it according to the weather conditions.
Step 6: Sunscreen
You need this product every day. Never leave your home without it even on a cloudy day. In that way your skin will be protected from the harsh UV rays and you will stop the premature aging.
