We all have unique ways of caring for our skin, but are we doing it correctly? Read on to see why skincare order is important and the best routine to follow to get the most out of your products.
Why is the Correct Order of Skincare Routine Crucial?
As per the Cleveland Clinic, the order in which you apply your skincare products determines how effectively your skin absorbs them. Therefore, it’s vital to apply products based on their weight, moving from lightest to heaviest. While some may think using more products is better, Cosmetic and Surgical Dermatologist Dr. Kiyanna Williams advises, “I think it’s best to whittle it down to the basics.”
Let's dive into the correct skincare routine to maximize your products' potential.
Basic Daily Skincare Routine
Step 1: Cleanser
The cornerstone of any morning skincare routine is cleansing. A facial cleanser helps remove overnight buildup. “By cleansing your skin, you’re also priming it so it can absorb future products.” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry. Choosing the right cleanser for your skin type sets the tone for a great start to the day.
Step 2: Toner (optional)
While optional, a toner’s role is to hydrate and eliminate residual dead skin cells and impurities post-cleansing. This step is tailored to individual skin conditions and preferences.
Step 3: Moisturizer
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King underscores the importance of moisturizers. They lock in prior products and ensure skin stays hydrated. We recommend our Omnia All-In-One Skin Perfector. This complexion-enhancing face cream combines nine steps into one, offering depuffing, smoothing, softening, soothing, and brightening effects in addition to nourishing hydration. It also acts as a makeup primer, promising long-lasting, flawless makeup.
Step 4: Sunscreen
Guarding your skin against UV damage is crucial for a youthful complexion. As your final step in your routine before heading out, apply an SPF 50 sunscreen for optimal protection.
