Finding the right products for your skin can be tricky, but layering your skincare correctly will help you prevent and treat issues. Knowing which products to use at what time of day allows you to take care of your skin in a more efficient way, so that it can be healthy, soft and luminous.
Whatever products you are using, there are a few rules you can always rely on:
- Layer products ‘thin to thick’ - start with the thinnest consistency product and move through to the thickest one.
- Oils should go on last, because they will block anything else you put on afterward from soaking into your skin.
- Sunscreen is an exception to the oil rule - sunscreen isn’t adding anything to your skin, it’s just creating a protective barrier between skin and sun, so it doesn’t need to be absorbed and can be applied last.
We’ve included an AM and PM routine, so you can pick the one you need now and get started.
Step 3: Spray Revive Face Mist onto damp skin.
Step 4: Wait 60 seconds, apply Collagen C Serum.
Step 5: Wait 60 seconds, apply Multi-Vitamin Moisturiser.
Step 6: Wait 60 seconds, apply Antioxidant Repair Oil.
Step 7: Wait 60 seconds, apply SPF sunscreen.
Step 8: Wait 60 seconds, apply Mineral BB Cream.
Done! Repeat as necessary and enjoy the results.
Why do I have to wait 60 seconds?
Each product needs time to be absorbed and activated within your skin. Adding another product on top without waiting can dilute both products and prevent your skin from getting the full benefit of either one.
Step 2: Spray Botanical Glow Cleanser on Konjac Sponge (repeat step twice if you have any makeup on) and cleanse/exfoliate your face and neck.
Step 3: Apply Matcha/Charcoal Mask (mask 2-3 times a week). Once dry, remove with reusable makeup pad/cloth and water.
Step 4: Spray Revive Face Mist onto damp skin.
Step 5: Wait 60 seconds apply Collagen C Serum.
Step 6: Wait 60 seconds apply Multi-Vitamin Moisturiser.
Step 7: Wait 60 seconds apply Antioxidant Repair Oil.
Remember to do your evening skincare routine at least 2 hours before bed, otherwise you will lose product on the pillow/sheets before it’s absorbed. Sweet dreams!
What difference does the order make?
Any skincare routine should focus on three things: cleansing, toning and moisturising. The order we have listed above ensures that you tick off all those tasks, and give your skin enough time to properly benefit from each product. Hybrid or ‘all-in-one’ products can often dilute ingredients and this routine focuses on doing one thing at a time, properly.
