Layering up

We know you've got questions on how to layer your products, so here are our top tips on creating the perfect layering routine. With layering season in full swing (and we're not just talking about clothes!), here's our step-by-step guide to achieving the ultimate skin layering game plan:

  • Kick things off with a cleanse - we know, it's a no-brainer, but always important to mention. Your skin comes into contact with dirt throughout the day, so give it a thorough clean to start fresh.
  • If it's an exfoliating day, make sure to do this next for a silky smooth surface.
  • Start with your thin, water-based products first. Think cream-like serums and moisturizers.
  • For powerful serums with active ingredients like Vitamin C, retinol, niacinamide, or exfoliating acids, apply these first. This is also the time to dab on any eye cream.
  • Move on to your moisturiser.
  • Leave your oils and balms for last, and if you use both, go for oil first and balm last.
  • The best time to really indulge in your routine is at night. Cleanse and apply your water-based products in the evening, then add your oils or balms right before bed for maximum benefits.
