SKINCARE LAYERING: THE BEST ORDER TO APPLY YOUR PRODUCTS
There are a lot of different skincare products, but what’s the best order to apply them in? If you want to know how to apply skincare products in the best order, read on.
STEP 1: PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE
When layering skin care products, it’s best to prepare the night before – remember, your skin will thank you for it! Use a gentle exfoliant like our Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum each night, as it’ll help your other products absorb better when you use them the next day.
Enriched with Moonlight Cactus flower extract and 3.4% glycolic acid, our serum smooths and refines the skin, encouraging the removal of dead skin cells while simultaneously hydrating. Wake up to skin less tired the next morning, but also prepared for the rest of your routine.
STEP 2: CLEANSE AND TONE
The next day, make a start by cleansing and toning your skin. Following a gentle cleanse, try our Pure Shots Hydra Bounce Essence-in-Lotion containing vitamins E and B3 as well as Orange Blossom extract to hydrate your skin and create a base that feels soft and comfortable.
It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and all you need to do is press it softly onto your face from the centre to the edges, before smoothing it downwards until it’s been absorbed.
STEP 3: EYE CREAM OR EYE SERUM
When planning the perfect skincare routine, you can’t neglect your eyes. Use our Eye Reboot Concentrate to keep your eyes looking bright and youthful – this cream-to-serum shot is formulated with Moonlight Cactus flower and caffeine to reduce signs of fatigue and hydrate instantly, all with a non-greasy finish.
Just get one pump on your fingertip and smooth it gently around the eye contour on your lower and upper eyelids. Applying your eye product before your face serum can help form a protective barrier around the delicate eye contour, aiding in avoiding irritation from the potentially powerful actives you might apply next.
STEP 4: SERUM
If you’re using a water-based serum, or any serum, for that matter, it should be applied before your moisturiser when layering skin care. Our Pure Shots Light Up Serum has a lightweight, milky texture and a blend of micro-peals and vitamin C to target free radicals throughout the day and help boost radiance.
The formula, suitable for sensitive skin as well as all other skin types, absorbs fast for skin that feels softer with a fresh sensation. Just take two pumps of serum and press it onto your skin using the palm of your hand. Begin with your cheeks, moving up the cheekbones, and finishing on your forehead – be mindful not to get too close to your eyes. Then, massage to light up your skin. Go in circular motions with your fingertips, as this will help to activate blood circulation.
STEP 5: MOISTURISER
To keep your skin hydrated, as well as locking in the other products you’ve used, it’s important to use a moisturiser. For optimum nourishment and hydration, use our Pure Shots Perfect Plumper Cream, which contains Orange Blossom extract and ribose for a formula that melts into the skin and provides plenty of moisture.
Warm the cream on your fingers and apply on each half of your face, starting on the cheeks and temples. Massage with your fingertips to plump.
STEP 6: SPF
Before your skincare routine ends, you can’t forget the essential step of protecting your skin from the sun. Use an SPF product like our Airthin UV Defender, which combines citrus peel and niacinamide to allow your skin to breathe while protecting it. It’s 8x thinner than classic UV base, so it feels light on your skin, and it’s simple to apply.
To use, shake the bottle and pour seven drops into your palm, applying to your forehead, cheeks, nose, and neck. Spread with one hand from one temple to the other. Then, with both hands, spread the product on your cheeks and nose, from the centre of your face to the outside and back, finishing with the chin and neck.
STEP 7: MAKEUP
Of course, you can finish your look with some makeup. For a subtle look, try our Nu Bare Look Skin Tint, which is enriched with hydrating hyaluronic acid. It can be used as a buildable lightweight foundation and is designed in 20 flexible shades, so you’re sure to find the one to suit your skin tone.
When it comes to skincare layering, it really can be as simple as that. Just follow our steps on how to apply skincare products for an effortless skincare routine that your face will be grateful for.
