How Should I Layer My Skincare?

Posted on: May 10th, 2018 by Elysiann Bishop

LayersYou take a lot of care in choosing the best products for your skin, so it’s natural that you want them to work optimally. That means proper application – did you know applying skincare products in the right order makes a big difference? Follow this sequence of events, and enjoy your best skin yet:

Cleanse: Starting with a clean slate may seem obvious, but it bears repeating. Spend ample time massaging a gentle yet effective cleanser into the skin, such as Actifirm Antioxidant Cleanser. Removing surface oils, debris, and cosmetics allows your skin to more readily absorb upcoming treatments.

Exfoliate: Good exfoliation not only revives by whisking away dull cells, it also preps your skin to accept other products.Try Actifirm Z-Peel for exfoliation that refreshes your complexion by lifting dead skin cells.

Apply Serum: Because serums are lighter than most moisturizers, they should be applied prior to any heavier lotions and creams. Actifirm Renovation Serum offers a multitude of benefits as it nourishes, hydrates, fights aging, and delivers antioxidants to the skin. Because it contains naturally derived hyaluronic acid and squalene, it attracts and binds moisture to the skin – a huge reason to apply it before you moisturize.

Eye Cream: The order of this step might come as a big surprise. Eye cream is specially formulated for the thin-skinned eye region, and applying it first allows it to do its job well while protecting this delicate area from overexposure to subsequent treatments. Actifirm Renovation Eye Cream fights aging as it hydrates with natural botanicals.

Moisturize: Your moisturizer will work better after serum, and it will also help “lock in” the benefits of the serum. For dry skin, try Actifirm Renovation Cream, while Actifirm Actimoist Booster makes a great pick for other skin types.

Sun Protection: If you’re heading out for the day following, don’t forget to finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. On the other hand, if you’re retiring for the evening, you can stop at moisturizer and rest assured that you’re giving your skin the best treatment possible!
