How to Build a Skin Care Routine: The Correct Order of Skin Care Products in 2022

What product do you use as the very first step of your skincare? Are you following the order of serum, toner, cream, and lotion? If you have never questioned this order and always started with your serum, then you might need to think again.

In this article, we are going to talk about skin care routine, the order that they go in if you should use some in the morning or in the evening.

Step 1.

The first step is your oil-based or water-based cleanser. If you wear makeup or tinted moisturizer, they have to remove that. In addition, it removes sunscreen, dirt, sweat, and other impurities. You can do this twice a day in the morning and evening.

How to Use

Just apply a small amount to your fingers, rub over damp skin, and then wash away.

If your next step is a toner or a physical exfoliator, leave your skin wet. If your next step is a mask, a chemical exfoliator, a serum, or your moisturizer, leave your skin dry.

Step 2.

Exfoliators remove dead skin that makes your skin look clogged, dull, dry and aged. They unclog pores that can otherwise lead to blackheads spots, breakouts and enlarged pores. So, they generally just make skin look a lot healthier and brighter.

How to Use

Use 1 to 3 times a week depending on your skin type.

Step 3.

This step is not obligatory. We are talking about an eye serum. It is just for someone who needs to reduce puffiness and potentially dark circles. An eye serum is packed with ingredients just to energize your tired skin and make it look overall a lot better.

How to Use

It can be used in the morning and evening every single day.

Step 4.

A serum is like a vitamin tablet of skincare. It is usually packed with very concentrated ingredients that target a particular skincare concern.

How to Use

Just pop a few drops on your face, massage in gently. Make sure it's fully absorbed.
