How to Layer Your Skin Care Products

The personal care industry consists of about 750 companies, and is worth more than $40 billion. Often, it can be a bit confusing to know when and how certain products should be used. These products all do different tasks, and have different ingredients. That being said, there is a proper order for how you should apply your skin care products. Generally, you go from thinnest to thickest. We expand on that below.

  1. Serums

Before you apply your skin care products, you need to make sure that your face has just been washing. If you apply products to unwashed skin, you are sealing in all of the grime that was on your skin. That is the opposite of what we want.
