In What Order Should You Apply Your Skincare Products?
Does it matter if you apply your skincare products in a particular order? Yes, it does! Layering your skincare products incorrectly will not only render them ineffective but might even end up irritating your skin. You need to follow a step-by-step skincare regime that allows your skin to reap maximum benefits and we are here to show you how you can get the most out of all the products in your bathroom shelf.
Step 1 – Cleanser
Start your skincare regime with a face cleanser that caters to your skin type. This will help remove makeup, excess oil, sweat, and dirt and keep skin problems at bay. Start with mild yet effective cleanser like the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove all makeup and other impurities from your skin without needing to rinse it. You can then double cleanse with the Garnier Bright Complete Facewash to refresh and revive and give your skin an instant boost of radiance.
Step 2 – Toner
Next, refresh your skin and close large, open pores with a toner. Toners are highly concentrated formulas that restore skin after cleansing and provide the nourishment your complexion needs to look fresh throughout the day. This skincare product also balances your skin’s pH level and tightens pores.
Step 3 – Serum
Since thinner skincare products like serums cannot penetrate the thick consistency of face creams, you need to apply lighter products first before moving onto heavier face creams or oils. Serums are nutrient-dense treatments that address specific concerns, so chose one that suits your skin’s needs like an antioxidant serum to fight free radical damage, a brightening serum to combat dull skin, a hydrating serum to improve the moisture retention of dry skin, etc. For example, vitamin C serums are all-rounders that help diminish hyperpigmentation and dark spots, give your complexion a brightening boost, and also safeguard the skin from sunburn, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sagging, and dryness. Try the Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum to get a bright, spotless complexion and reduce dark spots and acne marks in only 3 days.
Step 4 – Eye Cream
The eye area is extremely sensitive and it is important to hydrate the area with a gentle skincare product that is specially made for the fragile skin around the eyes. This area is often the first to show signs which is why you need an eye cream if you want to hold on to your younger-looking skin for longer. Using the Garnier Light Complete Eye Roll On will help in addressing concerns like dark and puffy under-eyes and will refresh, smoothen, and brighten the eye contours.
Step 5 – Moisturizer
Moisturizers not only hydrate and nourish the skin but also lock in all the benefits from your serums. A face moisturizer or moisturizing cream keeps the skin feeling supple, smooth, and younger-looking. Try the Garnier Light Complete Moisturising Serum in Lotion to moisturize your skin and also prevent sun damage. Use the Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Yoghurt Night Cream to exfoliate dead cells and brighten the skin while you get your beauty sleep at night. You can also add specific anti-ageing creams or anti-acne-creams to your daily skincare regime if you have mature or acne-prone skin.
Step 6 – Sunscreen
Harmful sun rays can damage your skin and lead to hyperpigmentation, dry skin, and signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines. Sunscreen protects your skin’s barrier from harsh UV rays and maintains your skin’s health and radiance. The Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum Cream with SPF 40 is made up of a lightweight formula that gets absorbed into the skin quickly and is perfect for days when you don’t feel like adding an additional layer of skin care product on your skin. This vitamin C cream guards your skin against the three signs of sun-induced damage – skin tanning, dark spots, sunburns and external aggressors.
