It can be confusing to know which step should come first in your skin care regime. Really simple – the lighter the product, the earlier it must be applied.
For instance; toner, serum, oil, eye cream, moisturizer. If you think about it, an aqueous toner will really have trouble getting past an oil to penetrate the skin.
CLEANING FOR MORE THAN YOU THINK
Almost everyone cleans too short, unless told otherwise by an expert.
If you really take the time to cleanse your skin, your remaining skin care will be absorbed more easily because your circulation is stimulated and your other formulas will not have to bypass any residual makeup, sweat or bacteria on the skin surface.
Clean a whole minute in the morning, take the time to massage your cleanser to wake up and prepare your skin for your remaining routine.
& # 39; Double cleaning in the evening. The first cleansing is to easily remove any makeup or SPF from the day and your second cleansing is to really clean your skin.

Just two minutes before your evening cleaning will make a huge difference in the brightness and appearance of your complexion.
PRESS YOUR TONER
Discard the cotton pads for your toner / tonic application. They waste a lot of product and are not necessary.
Instead, pour a ten pence piece of your product into the palm of one hand and press the toner into your skin with the four fingers in your other hand.
Pushing in your skin care is much more effective than rubbing, because you work the product in your skin so that it is absorbed more easily.
If you apply your toner in the right way, you can go directly to your moisturizer as soon as you are done with the application.
With this technique you actually work the product in the skin instead of wiping the toner over the surface and waiting for it to be absorbed.
EXFOLIING IS CRUCIAL
Regular peeling is crucial for an effective skin care regime. If you notice that your skin care is not working as well as it should, you should probably exfoliate.
Our skin is constantly regenerating, with new skin cells paving its way to the surface.
However, if we do not exfoliate to scatter the dead, dull skin cells that are on the surface, your skin will not only look dull, but your remaining skin care will also find it harder to penetrate the top layer of skin.
MASSAGE YOUR MOISTURIZER
Facial massage is the cheapest, most effective skin care hack you can find. A facial massage, where a fair amount of pressure is used to really train your muscles, will tighten, strengthen and lift the facial muscles, making the skin look more yellow and wrinkles less pronounced.

In addition, it increases blood flow to the area that you massage, increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients that reach the skin and stimulating collagen production.
These are all essential for maintaining a plump, smooth and radiant complexion. Moreover, your skin is more receptive to your skin care ingredients afterwards, so you can get more out of your products.
THINK CC FOR YOUR EYES
Apply your eye cream in a & # 39; C & # 39; form above and below the eye to help your body's natural lymphatic drainage system that helps with dark circles and puffy eyes.

Begin at the inner corner of the eye and work out towards the end of the forehead, for above and below the eye.
DON'T FORGET YOUR NECK
We spend so much time on our faces that the neck is often bypassed.
However, the neck is particularly vulnerable to signs of aging because the skin is usually thinner than that on the face,
It has fewer oil glands to keep the skin plump and hydrated, making the neck look good for its time.
Take all your skin care – cleanser, serum and moisturizers – all the way to the neck and chest to prevent premature aging.
TAKE YOUR TIME
The powerful washing of your face followed by a little moisturizer will limit the results that you see from your skin care.
Take your time and enjoy the products to which you have spent your money.
Slow down each, apply it to your skin and allow sufficient time between each step.
This means that every product can be completely absorbed and feared pilling is prevented. You don't have to have a 12-step skin care regime, but make what you count.
