Skin care products are a necessary aspect of any skin care routine. There are so many options when it comes to skin care products in today’s world, you’re likely using a handful of skin care products yourself in your skin care routine. But are your skin care products really doing their job? The thing about using skin care products is there are a few things you need to know and do to really help your skin care products do their job. No, applying them any which way isn’t enough – there are some key things you need to know to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your efforts and usage.
Make Sure You Apply Your Products in the Right Order
As we mentioned above, just applying your products in any way that you can get them onto your skin isn’t going to be the best way to apply them. Sure, actually applying them to your skin is part of it, but it’s not all that matters if you really want them to do their job. To really make sure that your skin care products are doing their job, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re applying them in the right order. What’s that order? After you cleanse and tone your skin, experts suggest that you apply the follow-up products from thinnest to thickest in consistency. Applying your products in this order will help to ensure that your products are fully absorbed into your skin and able to do their job in the best way.
Exfoliate Your Skin
You’ve probably heard that exfoliating your skin is advised to have a healthy skin care routine, but are you doing it yet? Exfoliating your skin is going to play a major role in really helping your skin care products to do their job. How? Our skin tends to get built up with dead skin cells, oil and dirt on the surface – elements that aren’t always fully removed when we just cleanse on a regular basis. When we exfoliate our skin it helps to get a deeper clean on our skin and get rid of those dead skin cells on the surface. When our skin is removed of those elements, our skin is then able to better absorb the products that we begin to apply to our skin.
Don’t Use Too Much Product
We get it… it’s easy to think that more is more when it comes to applying your skin care products. But the truth is, in order to have your skin care products doing their job you often don’t need as much of the product as you may think. In fact, using too much product can actually keep the products from being able to fully do their job. Reading the instructions on the products is going to give you a really good idea as to how much of each product you actually need to apply and what’s suggested by the company to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your use.
