The Correct Way to Layer Your Skincare for Natural Glowing Skin
Layering your skincare in the correct order can seem like a mysterious process for many women. This is a common question I get asked as a skincare formulator and skin health expert which is why I wanted to address it here today to put an end to the big mystery behind the “right” way to layer your natural skincare products. Skincare should be a fun part of your self-care and should never feel like a stressor to get it perfectly right.
Having said that, the reason skincare layering is so important is because you are spending your hard-earned money on skincare products that you wish to perform in certain ways on your skin. This is true I believe for all women who spend time on their skin, but even moreso for women over the age of forty who have more skin concerns such as premature aging, wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, adult hormonal acne, and other skin changes that affect us as we enter peri-menopause or are post-menopausal.
If you are investing your time and money in products and a skincare ritual, you do have a certain degree of interest in making it count, right?! Before I get into the science behind layering just know that it is your body and your skin. If you feel good and are getting results using your products in a different layering order than suggested here, keep doing what feels right to you, or play around with both ways to compare how your skin feels.
Remember too, skin cells renew every thirty days or so, and sometimes it may take that long to see results from your skincare ritual. The key is to be consistent with a daily ritual which includes your natural skincare products but also proper nutrition and hydration for healthy looking skin. It is all about a multi-faceted lifestyle approach to pro-aging and is never “just about the skincare”.
