Habit Hack: Mastering the Art of Skincare Layering for Maximum Effect

Skincare is more than just choosing the right products; it’s about using them in a way that maximises their benefits. That’s where the art of skincare layering comes in. This technique, when done correctly, can enhance the effectiveness of your skincare routine, leading to better absorption of products and more radiant, healthier-looking skin. 

1. Understanding Skincare Layering:

- Why Layering Matters: Proper layering ensures each product functions optimally. By applying them in the correct order, you're allowing for efficient absorption and effectiveness.
Thin to Thick Rule: A basic rule of thumb is to apply products from the thinnest consistency to the thickest, ensuring that each layer complements the next.

2. Starting with the Basics

Cleanser First: Begin with a clean canvas. Opt for a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type to remove impurities and prepare your skin.
Toning the Right Way: After cleansing, a toner is your next step. It helps restore the skin’s pH and prepares it for subsequent products.

3. The Power of Serums:

Targeted Treatment: Serums are potent and designed to address specific skin issues like ageing, dark spots, or dehydration. Apply these after toning.
Patience in Absorption: Allow the serum to penetrate for a few minutes before proceeding, enabling its full benefits.

4. Locking in Hydration:

Effective Moisturising: A moisturiser seals in the serums' benefits. Choose a formulation that suits your skin type, from light gels to richer creams.
Eye Cream Application: Gently apply eye cream following your moisturiser, focusing on the delicate area around the eyes.

5. Sun Protection – The Final Step:

Essential SPF: Finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning. It protects against premature ageing and skin damage.
Regular Reapplication: For continuous protection, reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially if you are spending time outdoors.

6. The Nighttime Additions:

- Incorporate Retinoids: Consider using a retinoid at night after your serum. It aids in skin renewal but should be introduced gradually.
Overnight Masks for Extra Care: Substitute your night cream with an overnight mask occasionally for an additional hydration boost.
