The Proper Order to Apply Your Skincare

The world of skincare can be overwhelming, with a range of products available to achieve the perfect complexion. But with so many products, it can be difficult to know the proper order in which to apply them. In this blog, we’ll break down the steps to help you get the most out of your skincare routine.

Step 1: Cleanse

The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing. Cleansing removes dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. To cleanse, use a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type. Surface Radiance Cleanse by Medik8 is a gentle, yet effective foaming cleanser that helps to purify and refresh the skin. The product is designed to cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils and moisture, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

Step 2: Tone

Toning is an essential step in any skincare routine, as it helps to balance the skin’s pH level, remove any leftover makeup or impurities, and prepare the skin for the next steps. After cleansing, apply a toner to a cotton pad and gently swipe it over your face and neck. We recommend Medik8’s Daily Refresh Balancing Toner, a nourishing and refreshing toner that is designed to hydrate, soothe, and refine the skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Step 3: Apply Treatments

This is the step where you can apply any targeted treatments you may have in your skincare routine. This could include serums, essences, ampoules, or face oils. It is important to apply these treatments after toning because the skin is still damp, allowing the products to better absorb into the skin. GERnétic’s Cells Life Concentrate is a powerful and rejuvenating serum designed to help improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. This concentrate contains a blend of active ingredients, including antioxidants, vitamins, and amino acids, which work together to nourish, hydrate, and revitalise the skin.

Step 4: Eye Cream

The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to wrinkles, so it’s important to use a separate eye cream. Apply a small amount of eye cream around the eye area using your ring finger, gently tapping the product into the skin. We absolutely love GERnétic’s Eye Contour Gel, which is designed to soothe and hydrate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also helping to brighten and revitalise the eye area.

Step 5: Spot Treatments

If you have any specific concerns, such as acne or dark spots, now is time to apply spot treatments to those areas. Allow the treatments to dry before continuing to the next step.

Step 6: Moisturise

Finally, it’s time to moisturise! Moisturising is essential to lock in hydration and prevent the skin from becoming dry and dull. Choose a moisturiser that suits your skin type and apply it evenly over your face and neck.

Step 7: Sunscreen

If it’s daytime, don’t forget to finish your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Sunscreen protects the skin from harmful UV rays and prevents sun damage, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. We highly recommend Medik8’s Physical Sunscreen, a top-of-the-line sun protection solution with SPF 50+ broad-spectrum coverage. This advanced formula effectively absorbs and reflects harmful UV rays, safeguarding your skin from damage. If you’re searching for a sunscreen that is both comfortable and effective, while providing a luxurious feel, look no further than Medik8’s Physical Sunscreen.
