Skincare Routine Layering Steps

Do you know skincare has certain steps that you really need to follow or else your skincare product will not absorb thoroughly and become less effective? Sometimes it can be confusing but if you make it a habit, things will get easier time by time. So which skincare product you should apply first or what are the rules of skincare layering?  This entry will cover the most basic to the most advanced steps of your skincare.

The most basic step is always to start with a very light and watery product with a thick or oil-based product. This will help your skincare product to absorb better. For example, skincare products such as a moisturizer have a thicker texture compared to toners. So use your toner before applying your moisturizer.

Applying treatment skincare such as serum, essence, and ampoule can have a better penetration when applying to damp skin. In order that you need to be sure to have damp and hydrated skin before applying any treatment. 

Follow these skincare steps for better understanding:

  1. Oil-based cleanser
  2. Water-based cleanser
  3. Hydrating toner
  4. Exfoliation toner 
  5. Essence
  6. Serum 
  7. Ampoule
  8. Spot treatment
  9. Moisturizer 
  10. Facial oil
  11. Sunscreen
Feel free to skip any of the steps if there is no urge for you to use the product. The basic skincare product which you can't skip is the cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Further, please bear in mind, that exfoliation toner is not meant for daily use. 

Another tip is always to let each layer of your skincare fully absorb before proceeding to the next steps and reapply your sunscreen every 2-3hours. Hope this entry helps. Thank you for reading.
