Getting the perfect skincare routine is a challenging task, mostly because it’s unique for everyone. You can’t know what your skin needs and likes until you try it, and it may take years before you finally find the perfect routine for yourself. When you finally do, here’s how to get the most out of the products.
Cleansing your skin is a crucial step that should prep it for other products, so it’s important to use gentle cleansers that won’t dry it out. Make sure your skin is perfectly clean before moving on because any traces of makeup on it will reduce the effect of serums and creams.
Most of us only need two products for this: a serum and a daily moisturizer. Apply the serum first, wait for your skin to absorb it, then gently apply the moisturizer.
The Order is Important
The general rule is to apply lighter products first and move on to the heavier ones. That way, you can be sure that your skin will absorb all of them. For example, you can use the toner, then serum or gel, then cream, and in the end heavier cream with SPF.
