Are you applying your skincare correctly? Don’t worry, we know that remembering the order of our skin care products can be quite difficult. However, it is super important to know how to layer your products, so you get the most benefits out of them.
An easy way to remember is layering them of thinnest consistency to thickest.
Cleansing is one of the most important steps in skincare. Cleansers assists in removing dirt, oil and pollution, giving your skin that fresh, healthy glow. If we didn’t cleanse, it would be much difficult for other skin care products like moisturisers to penetrate into the skin. Also, the rule of cleansing twice is super important, especially when wearing makeup. If you’re wondering ‘What cleanser should I use?’ You can head on over and take our skincare quiz, to learn what products are right for you.
We all know that one of the easiest ways to boost a glow in the skin is exfoliation. Regular exfoliation helps with dullness in the skin, removal of dead skin cells, increasing cellular turnover and giving your skin a deep pore cleanse. This may include and physical exfoliation or a chemical exfoliation (AHAs/BHAs).
Masks are great for either drawing out impurities or infusing the skin with nourishing ingredients. Our Pink, Australian Clay Mask helps to draw out congestion, while softening and hydrating the skin at the same time.
The word ‘toner’ can often freak some of us out, especially when they used to be known for being alcohol based. They would often leave your skin stripped, and quite irritated. But toners today, are filled with gentle and nourishing ingredients that are great for all skin types and concerns. Toners are great for balancing the ph levels back into our skin and help with overall skin barrier.
Serums are highly concentrated formulas that are full of nutrients and antioxidants. It is basically like taking a shot of tequila. They boost up your skin health right when you apply them and they really amplify your skincare routine. There are various different serums that target different skin types and concerns. From spot treatments, to brightening serums, anti-ageing serums, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide… The list goes on. Making sure to find the right one for you is super important!
5. MOISTURISE/EYE CREAM
No matter what skin type or concern, a moisturiser is a MUST. Hydration is the key to healing and repairing all of your skin concerns. Moisturisers will keep your skin barrier healthy, and keep your skin nourished and hydrated. Not only this, moisturisers help to lock in all the products you face put on your skin prior, to make the ingredients even more effective.
It is important that we allow the products to absorb into our skin between each step and making sure to extend these steps to our neck and décolletage!
