Layering You Skin Care Products – Skin Over Everything


Layering You Skin Care Products

One of the most common questions clients ask estheticians is: What product goes on first? This is something that is usually only learned when going through an esthetician course. It's necessary to apply your products in a particular order so that your skin can get the benefits from each one.  

Here is the rule of thumb: thinnest to thickest. Our simple step-by-step guide to an everyday skin care routine is as follows:

Step 1: Cleanser

Step 2: Toner

Step 3: Serum

Step 4: Eye Product

Step 5: Moisturizer

Now it can get a little confusing when adding masks, scrubs, and spot treatments, but we are here to guide you all the way! Using this 5-step skin care routine is an easy beginner's guide to healthy skin.

For the skin care addicts like ourselves, I'm sure it can get confusing when trying to layer your 2 masks, 5 serums, moisturizer, and sleep mask. But if you keep your thinnest to thickest in the back of your mind you can't go wrong! Just a little extra when layering skin care:  make sure to wait one minute after applying your serum to use the next product in your routine, and products containing antioxidants work best in the daytime.
