Figuring out exactly what products to use on your skin is important, but it’s just as essential to know in what order to use them. Chances are you rely on a number of different gels, creams, serums, and oils for your morning and nighttime routines. By layering them in the correct order, you’ll increase their efficacy and reap more of their benefits. Check out Beautycounter’s five rules for simplifying the art of skin care layering.
Go from light to heavy.
As a general rule of thumb, apply your products from thinnest to heaviest. Why? If you apply a thick moisturizer first, your lightweight serum won’t be able to penetrate it.
Try a face oil.
Face oils function just like moisturizers, so they can actually be used in place of acream moisturizer. For extra hydration, though, you can apply a face oil right before moisturizer or mix it in with a cream formula.
Give it time.
Allow products to sink in for at least 30 seconds before applying the next one, giving your skin adequate time to fully absorb each formula.
Pat, don’t rub.
Just as the order of your products matters, so does your method of application. It’s best to press the formula into your skin—it’s gentler than pulling and dragging and helps quicken absorption.
Save SPF for last.
Because it sits on top of your skin, sunscreen or products containing SPF should go on after you’ve completed the other steps in your routine, like oil and serum, and right before you apply makeup.
