When it comes to getting the most from your skincare products, the question of what to apply and when to apply it- leads the top of list. A quick Google search will reveal over 63 million returns on the query “How to layer skincare”. No wonder we are confused.
Your skincare routine doesn’t need to be complicated and this quick and easy guide can help you get the most from your products and routine.
🌟GUIDELINE #1- In General, Go Lighter to Heavier
Skin is designed to absorb products and a general rule of thumb is apply products that are the lightest first and layer in heavier products. For example, you want to apply a lightweight antioxidant serum before you apply a heavier moisturizer.
🌟GUIDELINE #2- Allow Products to Absorb
When applying products, it can be tempting to rush the process. Especially at night when you are tired or when the morning rush hits. Products work best when we give them time to fully absorb to the appropriate layers of the skin before applying the next product. If you are pressed for time, opt for multi-tasking products designed to work together.
THE STEP BY STEP- MORNING ROUTINE
#1 CLEANSE with a gentle balancing wash.
#2 TONE using an adaptogen formula designed to balance pH and reduce surface stress.
#3 EYE SERUM designed to diminish puffiness and works well under makeup.
#4 SERUM with an antioxidant serum designed to protect skin from daily pollution and stress.
If you need a faster morning routine, look for products that allow you to combine steps without skipping out on the results. For example, the VERIBELLA PROTECT |DAILY DROPS were designed to act as your serum, moisturizer, and SPF in one skin-loving formula. Products that multi-task give you back your time and maximize your beauty budget.
