This Should Be the Order of Your Skin-Care Products

We’ve reached a certain age when our skin-care regimen has become a little more complex than just washing our T-zone and putting on lotion whenever we feel dry. But we’re still not exactly sure when to layer in those fancy serums or creams. (And someone please tell us when the hell our SPF comes into play.) So we did some research and created a simple step-by-step guide to your morning and evening routines.


Step 1: Cleanser. If you’re on the oilier side, use a mild wash in the mornings. Most people can get away with just splashing some water on their faces since there isn’t any makeup to remove.

Step 2: Toner. Whereas in the past, toners had more astringent qualities (think Seabreeze), newer formulas are used to rebalance the pH levels of your skin and add back any moisture lost from cleansing. Use the palms of your hands to gently tap the toner into your skin. (Yes, really. Cotton rounds tend to soak up a lot of the product.) 

Step 3: Serums. They’re lightweight, but they’re packed with the highest concentration of active ingredients. Choose them according to your skin issue. (For example, if you want to brighten up dull skin, look for a serum with vitamin C in it, or if you want to firm up fine lines, peptides are your best bet.)

Step 4: Moisturizing sunscreen. Though you could technically skip some of the other steps if you had to, sunscreen is always a must. Luckily, the latest formulas are super-hydrating, quick to absorb and actually wear well under makeup.
