In What Order I Should apply My Skin Care Products?

Does it really matter if you apply face oil before moisturizer? Or if your sunscreen goes on first or last?

The answer is YES.

Sequence Matters, Here’s Why

“The order of application is incredibly important,” says Dr. Rogers. “The skin’s job is to keep things out, but many of the skin care products we use have ingredients we want to get in. Only a very small amount of these key ingredients can penetrate the skin, even when perfectly formulated and perfectly applied. If you don’t apply products in the correct order, you will not see the best results from your skin care regimen.”

The morning routine is all about protection from the sun, pollution and the elements.

Here's the correct order to apply your skincare products :


In the morning, start by splashing your face with warm water or it's necessary, wash with a natural cleanser that removes impurities like mild chamomile facial cleanser. I always recommend choosing a sulfate-free cleanser to avoid altering the pH of the skin and weakening the barrier.


Most people choose to skip toners, partly because there is an assumption that most toners are rough and irritate the skin. Fortunately, with natural and vegan toners, this is no longer the case. These products refresh, moisturize, close the pores, balance the skin, and prepare it so that it can receive the subsequent treatment in a natural way, giving the skin a process of nourishment with vitamins and active ingredients that revitalize and rejuvenate the tissues of the skin. the skin.


The serum is a product dedicated to effectively treat any need our skin may have. Its high concentration of active ingredients and its fluid texture make it perfect to enhance the penetration of the product to a greater depth and provide a quick and visible effectiveness. What is best to keep as close as possible to the skin are the antioxidant serums and Vitamin C , the variety of benefits, the inflammatory response of the skin, the neutralizing damage of UV rays and environmental pollutants


According to board certified dermatologist Annie Chiu, it is vital to apply an eye cream at least every night, if not twice a day, after 20 years. "It's about maintaining the health and thickness of the eyelid skin." Improve the quality of the skin in this area from the beginning. Regular use of the eye cream will eventually keep the eyelid skin elastic and may improve or prevent some fine lines or collagen loss.


According to Dr. Diane De Fiori, Rosacea dermatologist treatment clinic, prescription medications and treatments for acne, such as serums, should be closer to the skin to maximize its benefits. All types of acne appear when the pores are covered with oil and dead skin for example With cystic acne, bacteria trapped deep in your pores cause inflammation,redness, swelling and pain I recommend a continuous exfoliation with products for sensitive skin and thus reduce the inflammation of the skin, also remember that treatments for acne can dry the skin, so that it always applies only in the places where you need it.


Yes, we all need a moisturizer and even if we have oily skin. According to dermatologist Whitney Bowe, if you do not nourish your skin with vitamins and antioxidants, your protective barrier weakens, dries up and eventually causes a loss of collagen, what with leads an acceleration of aging.

It is advisable to apply a moisturizer when the skin is still moist, so now the serum and treatment is applied, faster to maintain hydration.

If you are using an acne treatment, you can skip those areas to apply the moisturizer so that the ingredients do not interfere with the active ingredients in your treatment.


Sun protection should be the last step in your skin care routine during the day.

 It is recommendable always use a sunscreen with zinc and apply after your moisturizer. "Zinc is safe, effective and provides wider protection against UVA and UVB rays."

Another advice?

"Many products say you have to wait between five and 30 minutes before the next step to ensure adequate absorption, but who has time for that? If you have many steps, pause for a minute (one minute) to allow Each product reacts with the skin.

And ... Listen to your skin. Remember that you are unique and that no one else has your skin. It is important to find the right function for you and always be kind to your skin.
