Getting your skin care routine right and using your products in the right order can sometimes be confusing for some of you.  Serums, oils, masks, which one do I use first?

To make it easy for you, we’ve put together a layering guide to make sure you’re getting it right and making the most out of your products. 

First Step: Serum

 The consistency of a serum is designed to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Using your serums first will allow the active ingredients in the product to be most effective. Once you’ve applied each of your serums, allow them a moment to absorb into the skin. We recommend Cosmedix Serum 16

Cosmedix Serum 16

Containing LG-Retinex, Serum 16 is the closest thing to prescription strength age defiance without a prescription.

Second Step: Eye Treatments

Apply your favourite eye cream or serum with your fingertips to the eye area. Keep in mind that some ingredients can irritate the delicate eye area, so stick to using just eye creams around the area!

Skin Ceuticals Eye Cream

Powerful ingredients work synergistically in this firming eye treatment to hep correct early signs of aging. Eye cream is formulated with a special complex to help combat symptoms such as puffiness, sagging skin and dark circles.

Third Step: Moisturisers

Your moisturiser will provide essential hydration to the skin, while locking in the serums nutrients underneath. Make sure you are using a moisturiser to suit you’re your skin type to get the best results.
