You have a cabinet full of skincare products. But every morning and night, you don’t know which one to reach for first. You might be thinking, “It probably doesn’t even matter what order I apply my products in!”
Well, it does matter!
According to Dr. Heather Rogers, a board-certified dermatologist, the order in which you apply your products DOES matter. Applying products in the right order ensures you get the most out of each product.
Your skin is designed to keep things out of your body. This means your skincare products only work when they can penetrate the surface layer of skin. You need a strategy to get them past that barrier, which is exactly what we’ve outlined for you below.
The Proper Order for Skincare Product Application
The overall rule for applying your skincare products is to start with the thinnest product then move to the thickest, i.e. from liquid to cream. However, you have to be careful because there are certain products (like your antioxidant serum) that should still go first, regardless of their thickness, because they need to penetrate the skin.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to take out all your products and start checking their consistencies.
We’ve saved you the trouble and have outlined a simple day and night skincare routine for applying your products below.
Start with a Cleanser
Start your daily routine with our gentle foaming cleanser. Naturalrem’s coconut-based formula will open your skin to receive all the other products.
Use a Toner (or not!)
Your favourite toner should come next. Note that toners are not mandatory. If you don’t use a toner and have perfect skin health, you don’t need to start now. Toners just help to restore your skin’s natural pH levels after the effects of harsh creams or soaps.
Apply an Antioxidant Serum
Serums address specific skin concerns from inflammation to sun damage. You are likely using either our Ultra-Moisturizing Serum or our Vitamin C + HA serum. Whichever one you choose; you will get a 100%-natural treatment that will protect and nourish your skin.
Use an Eye Cream
Eye creams help keep wrinkles and crow’s feet away. You will want to put it on early in your routine. When choosing an eye cream, go for the ones with SPF.
Add the Acne Treatment
For maximum effects, acne treatments need to get as deep inside your skin as possible. Apply our Acne Cream, infused with CBD and other natural extracts. It absorbs quickly so you won’t have to wait long to apply your next product.
Always Use a Moisturizer
Whether you have oily or dry skin, you always need moisturizer. It hydrates and protects your skin from the pollutants outside. Your skin will love our Ultra-moisturizing serum and cream infused with the therapeutic properties of CBD. Ultra-Moisturizing Serum is double the strength of the cream and includes additional therapeutic oils.. You might want to avoid applying moisturizer on the areas you applied the acne cream to ensure maximum effectiveness of the treatment.
End your routine with your favourite sunscreen and you’re good to go! However, you might want to go with physical or mineral sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens need to get directly absorbed into your skin to be effective, and moisturizer would prevent that. So go for the physical sunscreens with zinc.
You would want to repeat these steps for your nighttime routine as well, but you can leave out the sunscreen!
Whether you are using our Ultra Moisturizing serum or our Anti-Wrinkle cream with Retinol, this is the best time to get the most out of the treatment. Your skin repairs itself at night so applying these products before bed helps you maximize their effects.
Now that you have a skincare routine and a strategy, no need to worry about which product goes when!
However, note that everyone’s skin is different. This routine is a general guide, but you should always pay attention to your skin and give it what it needs at different points in time. There may be days where you only need to cleanse, moisturize, and sleep. Other days, your skin may need all of the treatments.
You can also consult a dermatologist if you do not know what works best for your skin.
