How to layer your skincare products

We often get asked "what order should I put my skincare products on?". While the general rule of thumb is to apply from lightest to heaviest, we understand the process can still be a bit confusing! To help you navigate how to layer your skincare products, we've broken down the steps for you below.

Step by step

1. First Cleanse

Use 2-3 pumps and gently work into the skin in circular motions with dry skin and hands. Add water to emulsify and then remove.

2. Second Cleanse

With damp skin and fingertips, 2-3 pumps and work in small circles all over the face then rinse thoroughly with warm water and/or a cloth.

3. Mist

After cleansing/exfoliating sprits the skin generously and then apply serums/ moisturisers while the skin is still damp. Use throughout the day to keep the skin hydrated and protected. Can be used to
set powder makeup.

4. Serums

Whilst skin is damp from misting press two-three drops into face, neck, and décolletage. To further assist action, work to disable tension in expression muscles by pressing with fingertips in small circular motions. Layering up to 3 serums; wait 30 seconds for absorption between each layer.

5. Eye Serum

After misting and applying serums press half a pump along the orbital bone in firm, small circular motions.

6. Moisturiser

After misting and applying serums, apply to face, neck and décolletage morning and night.

7. Oil

Apply half a dropper of oil over the face, neck, and décolletage. Work into the skin gently in upward and outward motions to encourage circulation and lymphatic drainage.

8. SPF (daytime only)

Press 2-4 pumps into the face and neck, more if applying to the décolletage

Exfoliate (2 times a week only)

After cleansing, apply desired amount to damp face, neck, and décolletage. Leave for several minutes to allow the AHA’s to exfoliate at a cellular level, then gently massage with fingertips or a facial brush using circular motions.

Dermal Roll (2 times a week, alternate nights to exfoliating):

Using cross hatch motions (horizontal, vertical, and diagonal movements) roll across all areas of the face, neck, and décolletage.

Masque (1-2 times a week)

Apply a generous layer to clean, dry skin. Avoid the eyes and mouth. Leave for 15-20 minutes then gently massage the masque to melt jojoba esters. Rinse off with warm water
