Consumers spend nearly $4,000 annually on skincare, and there is nothing more frustrating when your hard earned cash feels our skin isn’t bringing its A-game. But something as simple as the order that you apply your skincare products can actually make a huge difference to your skin. We know it seems crazy militant, but if you don’t apply your serums and moisturizers in a specific order, you’re seriously disabling them from doing their job properly.
The most important thing is to ensure your skin is completely clean before you apply any hydrating lotions or oils. The general rule is to apply the most lightweight formulas first so they can be easily absorbed without the barrier of heavier creams.
After each skincare layer, give your skin time to absorb the product, this will also mean when you’re layering your products they won’t pill – those tiny little balls you get when you’ve used too much product. Work your skincare into your morning and evening routine, so brush your teeth between steps, give your makeup sponge a wash, whatever you’re doing that will give your skin a little extra time to absorb products in between steps.
