by Posted in Skin .

Just like your skin, your skincare routine has various different layers to it. With various different beneficial products that you can use, it’s important that you know how to use them effectively.

Join us as we take a look at the most effective way to layer up your skincare products to make the most out of your skin.



Ensure that your start off cleaning your face with a cleanser which is formulated for your type of skin to ensure that you make the most out of the formula and don’t irritate your skin.

Using a cleanser is the most important step in your skincare routine as it prepares your skin for the remaining products. Our Obagi Nu Derm System is a perfect base to start your routine, especially if you have dry, damaged skin.

Toner, Serum and Lotion

It’s really important to layer your skincare routine from thinnest product to thickest. Just like layering up your clothing in winter, you start with the thinnest item and work your way up to a thick coat.


This ensures that your skin benefits from all of the products that you are using, rather than being saturated with the densest product and unaffected by the others. Remember, toner, serum, lotion… in that order!

Lock in Moisture

Hydrating the skin is an essential step in your perfect skincare routine. Choose a moisturiser that will help the skin to retain its moisture by sealing it in, keeping it looking healthy and beautiful 24/7.


You may not think it’s necessary all year round, but sunscreen should be an important factor when it comes to looking after your skin.


Using a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays under your makeup is a great way to avoid getting sunburn on those warm days as well as reducing the risk of premature aging of your skin.

Last but not least, apply that makeup! If you have followed the previous steps that we have listed, you will find that your makeup will last longer. Who doesn’t want longer lasting, fresher looking makeup all night long?
