A simple guide to layering your skincare

Layering skincare products, including face oils, can help to optimise their effectiveness. Here are some steps to follow for layering natural skincare products:

  1. Cleanse: Start by cleansing your face to remove any dirt, oil, and makeup. Use a gentle, non-stripping cleanser that suits your skin type. Our Verdant & Auric oils can be used as effective oil cleansers. You can also cleanse using just water with our konjac sponges.

  2. Tone: Use a toner or hydrating mist to balance the skin's pH and prep it for the next steps.

  3. Serum: Apply a face serum that targets your specific skin concerns, such as hydration, brightening, or anti-aging. Wait for a few minutes for the serum to fully absorb before moving on to the next step.

  4. Oil: Apply a few drops of face oil, using your fingers to gently massage it into your skin. Wait a few minutes for the oil to absorb before moving on to the next step. You can use our Verdant, Auric or Sahara oils as effective facial oils in this step.

  5. Moisturise: Finish with a light moisturiser to lock in all the previous steps and provide hydration to the skin.

  6. Protect: Use a natural, mineral-based sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage and prevent premature aging.

It's important to remember that the order in which you apply your skincare products can make a big difference in their effectiveness. The general rule is to start with lighter, thinner products and then build up to thicker, heavier products, so that each layer has time to absorb and penetrate the skin before being sealed in by the next layer.

Additionally, it's also important to choose high-quality, natural ingredients that are well-suited to your skin type, and to be patient as you see the results of your layering routine.
