In What Order Should Products Be Applied?
October 17, 2017
The question that I get the most when explaining product application to clients is… “In what order should products be applied? Oils then creams? SPF then makeup?” It can be very confusing when using several products and there are rules to layering that can help you achieve the best results.
If you want to receive the full benefits from each product it's important to put them on in the correct order; thinnest to thickest!
- First step; Cleanse: It's important to cleanse your face twice a day. Use your hands…we don’t believe in using wash cloths or cleansing brushes. We recommend cleansers that remove makeup and dirt without stripping your skin. Two of my favorite cleansers are Ojys Neroli Cleanser and IS Clinical Cleansing Complex
- If you use a Toner it should be applied next. Toners help to adjust and balance the ph level of your skin and they can even hydrate and brighten depending on the ingredients. Circ Cell’s Dew is a great option that does all in one.
- Serums: These are lightweight formulas that penetrate deeper into the skin to deliver concentrated ingredients that address specific concerns. My favorites are: IS Clinical Active Serum for oily skin and BioEffects EGF Serum for anti-aging.
- Moisturizer: If you feel that your skin needs an additional layer of hydration, these are a great additions. Apply these after serums. Crème Sublime by Ojys is at the top of my list for this task.
- Face oil: Many people love these formulations because of the glow and hydration they provide. Oils can be used instead of a moisturizer or in addition to. Remember an oil will create an impenetrable barrier, so always use last. My all time favorite is Vintner’s Daughter
- Sun Protection: If you use SPF, it should always be the last step in your regimen.
