6 Ways to get more from your skin care products

You may think that you have to use a long list of beauty products to look good. However, this is not the case, and here are some simple tips to make your skin care routine a lot easier and effective.

Use your cleanser like a pro – When you cleanse your skin, concentrate your cleansing where you have the most pores. This will help to clean dirt and oil more effectively, penetrating your skin and removing dirt from blocked pores.

Apply face serum while your skin is damp – Washing your face and then applying your serum is the best way to lock in moisture.

Exfoliate a few times a week – It is a good idea to exfoliate your face as dead skin cells get stuck on the surface of the skin, this will make your skin look dull and dry.

Learn to layer – You can layer your serums and sunscreen to get the maximum glow. Serums are great for anti‑aging, hyperpigmentation, antioxidants, hydration and repair. So if your serum doesn’t have all these properties, invest in a few and layer them.

Use the dot method to apply sunscreen – Avoid applying sunscreen on your palm and then applying it on your face. Instead, dot sunscreen on your face and then lightly massage it in. This will ensure that most of your sunscreen is on your face and not left on your palm.

Change up your a.m. and p.m. skincare routines – Your day and night skin care routines should be different. In the night you should be using products to repair, while in the morning you should concentrate on protection.
