Giveaway: Win NeoStrata’s Skin Active Antioxidant Defense Serum

14 Nov 2015

Are you layering your skincare in the right order? It’s pretty important if you want your products to be as effective as possible. It’s not bad if you’re not doing it right, but if you’re already spent the cash to buy the right products, you might as well get the best out of it. Right? The golden rule of thumb: go lightest to heaviest. 🙂

After washing your face, you should start with the lightest feeling products to the heaviest. Serums, for example, come before moisturizers and oil. Anything water-based will sink into your skin most easily without any heavier products getting in the way.

Below is a quick overview of the best order to apply skincare products. Some of these products are optional of course!

1) Remove makeup (in the evening)
2) Wash your face
3) Toner
4) Serum
5) Treatment
6) Eye cream
7) Moisturizer (day or night)

Serums go after toners, so they can be as close to your skin as possible. After you apply your serum, wait a few minutes until it’s fully absorbed. It helps to ‘pat’ it in. Once it has been absorbed, you can apply your eye cream or any targeted treatment you have.

So have you been using your skincare products in the right order?

Speaking of serums, I’ve just found out about this giveaway: NeoStrata is currently giving away a full size Skin Active Antioxidant Defense Serum (a $78 value) to 25 lucky winners on their website!
