There is an art to applying your skincare products. You cannot just slap them on carelessly and pray that your skin successfully absorbs every essential ingredient. Do your skin – and wallet – a favour and follow these steps to get the most out of your day and night-time beauty routines.
Rule of Thumb: Go from lightest to heaviest. Think about it, if you start with a thick moisturiser, any other product you apply afterwards won’t be able to penetrate the layer of cream or lotion. Also, allow each layer to sink in for a few minutes before applying the next product. This helps ensure that each skincare product is able to deliver its distinctive benefits without affecting the functions of the next product.
Step 1: Toner or Hydrating Mist
Instead of harsh astringents, use a refreshing essence that hydrates the skin and supports skin cell renewal. After cleansing your face, apply a product that is light, almost water-like but packed with skin benefits. Try SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence. It contains amino acids, nourishing vitamins and minerals, plus organic acids that promote a more refined and radiant skin complexion.
