How do you properly layer your skincare products?

A daily skincare routine is essential for healthy and glowing skin. The good news? A good routine doesn’t have to be overly sophisticated or time consuming. Instead, it should cover the basic needs of your skin without overdoing it.

In essence, your skin needs your attention twice a day. In fact, once in the morning and then again in the evening. Firstly, start your day with your morning routine, this way you prepare your skin for a busy day, provide it with plenty of moisture and protect it from harmful influences. Secondly, end your day with your evening routine, to make sure your skin recovers during the night by first cleansing it from oil and pollutants and then providing it with the nutrients and regenerating ingredients it needs.

The Morning Routine

Step 1: Cleansing

A good day begins with a balanced morning routine. And cleansing is always the first step of your skincare ritual. Because it removes oil, bacteria, pollutants, and product residues from your skin. Additionally, the gentle massaging movements stimulate blood circulation in your skin, giving it a healthy glow and preventing puffiness in the morning. After cleansing, your pores are clean and unclogged. Now, your skin can take in skincare products much better and is ready for your day cream.

Step 2: Day Cream

Always apply your day cream to damp skin, never to dry skin. This way, you lock in moisture and your skin can take in the nutrients easily. Additionally, you avoid pilling. Your day cream provides your skin with moisture and nutrients all day long and protects it from harmful influences. And don’t forget: Sunscreen is not optional! It’s essential in your daily routine. HERE you can read why sun protection is important for your skin.

The Evening Routine

Step 1: Cleansing

To regenerate after a long, eventful day, your skin needs intensive care. That’s why cleansing is the first step of your evening routine. Firstly, clean your face to get rid of all the pollutants that have accumulated on your skin during the day. Again, it’s important to cleanse the face with gentle massaging movements to stimulate blood circulation and boost the regeneration process.

Step 2: Serum

Serums contain highly concentrated active ingredients that help you achieve your skincare goals. Secondly, use your serum on damp skin after cleansing and massage it thoroughly into your skin. This way, the active ingredients can penetrate your skin and help you achieve that healthy glow. Most importantly, you should always apply your serum before the night cream to get the active ingredients deep into your skin.

Step 3: Night Cream

Finally, your skin is ready for your night cream. Night creams contain regenerating and antioxidant ingredients to help your skin recover during the night. Those ingredients boost the metabolism in your skin cells and repair cell damage. Now you are ready for your beauty sleep.
