Is there a correct way to layer skin care products? Have you ever thought about how you layer products during your skin care routine? Think about all the money you spend for this amazing skin care product only to not use it correctly.
The steps in which you apply your skin care products makes a huge difference in how much of it your skin will absorb and use. Layering your skin care routine correctly is equally important and works for every single product.
So, get the most out of your products with these routines on how to layer your skin care regimen:
Cleanse the skin – this is the first step of any skin care routine. It’s important to start your routine with a clean skin. Wash your face morning and night using your 24K Pure Gold Deluxe Cleanser to remove everything off any dirt, pollution, bacteria, excess oil, residue of makeup, makeup remover and scrub and prepare it for further products that will help your skin refresh and rejuvenate. Make sure to find a gentle cleanser formula as it can irritate or dry out your skin and disrupt its pH.
A good toner can restore the skin’s pH level and replenish skin’s hydration. To replenish your skin through hydration, remove dead cells and dirt left behind, to combat excess oil and close pores after cleansing.
Serum is one of super hydrating products that are usually very lightweight that skin easily absorbs. Applying serum is an additional protection for your skin during the day. It targets your specific concern; brightening, calming or firming. Generally, your serum should have active ingredients that you can wear throughout the day like Niacinamide and Vitamin C which will make it plump, firm and elastic. . Using a serum mildly, once every other day, would boost your skin and provide your skin with all it needs but in a gentle, balanced way.
We recommend our 24 K Pure Gold Serum with active ingredients for skin hydration and a visible glow.
4. Eye Cream
Skin around your eye tends to be thinner and more sensitive – the area that’s prone to signs of aging like wrinkles, puffiness and fine lines. Don’t apply your eye cream close to the eye and only on the orbital bone. This happens little by little but being consistent is the best way to get there. Although eye creams can brighten, smoothen, and firm up the area, it won’t completely erase issues.
You should skip applying eye cream if your moisturizer and serum are suitable for the eye area.
Moisturizers seal all the goodness in. They meant to regenerate and rebuild collagen and elastin on our skin’s protective barrier. Not only does moisturizing help prevent breakouts and improve the uppermost layer of the skin but it also provides a nice base for makeup application.
Moisturizers provide humectants like hyaluronic acid, nurturing ingredients and antioxidants. Know your skin type to be sure you choose the moisturizer that suits you.
We recommend our 24 K Pure Gold Moisturizer. It’s for all skin types. Even if you have oily skin, you can still achieve glowing and radiant skin.
6. Face Oil
Face oils can make your skin radiant even on a single dose. Oils catch the dry spots and problem areas your moisturizer can’t handle. They are extremely nourishing products that soften, plump up your skin and prevent it for drying out. Typically the thickest products, so they should go on top of everything that you applied before it so they will lock in all the product’s ingredients else.
We recommend our 24 K Pure Gold Deluxe Facial Oil because of its ability to penetrate quickly into the skin delivering the potent dose of essential fatty acids and 7 plant botanicals rich in Vitamins A, B, C, and E.
You’ve gotta protect. Applying sunscreen should be the last step in your morning routine.
Probably the most important step. Not applying sunscreen every single morning is like inviting wrinkles and fine lines to make a party on your face. Using a hydrating sunscreen can protect your skin from damaging sun rays and reduce by a lot the appearance of the aging signs and premature wrinkles.
Sunscreens should sit on top of all the products that you applied before to protect your skin by reflecting the UV rays away because of the zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
Timing matters when you want to maximize all the active skincare ingredients on the products you use. Apply your skincare products from thinnest to thickest, as the final layers provide increased barrier function to your skin.
Wrong skin care order and not using the right amount in your skin care, can irritate your skin, cause you to break out or dehydration of your skin. But still, finding the skin care that best works for you and that you’ll follow is the most important thing. Have fun layering!
