The Correct Order To Apply Your Skincare Products
You've done all the research and finally have your regimen of skincare products, but you still have some questions.
Which skincare product do I use first?
Is there a specific order in which I need to use all these products?
Well, beauties, the answer is yes! So, if you want to find out the correct order to apply skincare products, continue reading.
Tips To Get Your Started
Like most things in life, applying in the correct order is essential for the best results. But where do you start?
Tip 1: Look At The Consistency Of The Skincare Products
The trick to remember is to start with the thin products first and work your way to the thicker ones.
- Lightweight serums
- Finish with oils
Tip 2: Prioritize The Ingredients
How the heck will you know this? The trick is to prioritize the most active ingredients in your products. Fortunately, most will still fall under the consistency rule listed above. Think hyaluronic serum before a moisturizer, for example.
The rule of thumb is, the more critical the ingredient, the sooner you should use it. As these ingredients, you want to penetrate deeper into the skin to get the best results.
Now that you understand that let's get right into layering your skincare products!
How To Properly Layer Your Skincare Products
Step 1: Cleanse
Think of preparing the skin. Skincare works best with a clean canvass. Cleansing also:
- Prepares the skin for anti-aging products and treatments.
- It helps products absorb correctly.
Step 2: Tone
Toners help to thoroughly clear away makeup, dead skin cells, and any other grime that may be left on your skin.
Looking for a toner, why not consider Ginjo's Wake-Up Toner. It is the secret weapon to healthy skin by unclogging and tightening your facial pores. It also helps to restore PH balance and leaves the skin glowing and smooth.
Step 3: Apply Eye Cream
The eyes are very delicate and thin, and one of the first areas to show signs of aging, like crow's feet, fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and sagging skin. Putting your eye cream on before some of the other treatments is more so for preventive measures, meaning you do not want to accidentally rub an active skincare ingredient in your eye if you still have that on your finger or skincare applicator.
Wondering what type of eye cream to use? Why not consider using our Moisturizing Eye Cream? By adding this to your regimen and applying daily, you can reduce puffiness, diminish dark circles over time, and combat fine lines and wrinkles, while also maintaining elasticity.
Step 4: Apply Serums
Think of this step as the prevent and treat step where you want to address a specific skincare concern, like wrinkles, saggy skin, hyperpigmentation, etc. The goal is to avoid any barrier blocks (like a thick moisturizer) and get these high concentrations of active ingredients as close to the skin as possible so they can start working right away.
For a boost of collagen to optimally nourish and replenish the skin’s moisture, make sure to add our 24-hour Collagen Serum to your skincare routine.
Step 5: Moisturize
We like to call this step the protect and support step, so do not skip it, even if you have oily skin. Moisturizing the skin provides many benefits, like:
- Provides long-lasting hydration for a smoother-looking plump and firm complexion.
- Protects the skin by keeping the toxins out.
- Visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
- It helps anti-aging ingredients work better.
So, there you have it. Now you are on your way to layering your skincare products like a pro!
