What product do you use ask the very first step of your skincare? Are you following the order of toner, serum, ampoule, lotion, cream? If you have never questioned this order and always started with your toner, then you might want to think again.
Hey guys, welcome back to Wishtrend TV, it’s your sister Eunice here. So toners, essence, serum, lotion, ampoule, cream? The steps seem like it’s just growing and growing But do you know exactly what skincare products you apply first? the reason why the order your apply your skincare is so important is because Some products work better when it comes before other products when it comes after other products, It might not work as well.
Now the question is that what product am I supposed to apply first? So today we’re going to be covering the basic steps to advanced steps of your skincare. So the basic step of skincare is to provide moisture to your skin, and then you want to make sure to seal that with an oil to prevent evaporation How to choose the first step.
1. ingredients and texture. So we hear this tip a lot to use always the Wateriest texture of the products to the thickest texture. But exactly why is that? For example, if you apply a high functioning product like an ampoule after something with a thicker texture It’s difficult for the ingredients from the ampoule to soak into your skin better So because of the same reason if you apply more layers of the product You’ll reduce the absorption rate towards the end of your skincare step But this doesn’t necessarily mean that you always have to apply the wateriest texture first.
For example, eyecreams they tend to have a thicker texture It’s the best to apply eye creams after the first or second step of skincare Applying eye cream after all your other skin care products may prevent it from getting Absorbed into your skin much better.
How to choose the first step. 2. skin type toners are amazing They are the very first product you usually use in your routine However, they come in so many different textures that sometimes it’s really difficult to find the right product for you.
Some of you guys use toners with the cotton pad and Other people use it directly with their hands and just dab onto your skin and maybe if you’re like me you use both ways Depending on condition, depending on your skin type and how you use it, the perfect toner may be different for you So actually soaking up your cotton pad with your toner can be a continual method of your cleansing step.
Now this is really effective to hydrate your skin and also for exfoliation and It helps you even out your uneven skin texture as well. When you want to reduce irritation, We want to recommend that you fully soak in your cotton pad with your toner So using a product with a very light and watery texture is really good for this method and also using a toner with AHA is a really really good choice for you to use with this method.
We want to highly recommend it for oily skin types or any skin types that’s looking for some exfoliation effect Now there are a lot of cases with oily skin types use toners with alcohol. However, we do understand because when you first do use it, you feel that freshness But that is only temporary only for that very moment.
Afterward, alcohol can dry out your skin So we want to recommend that you avoid toners with alcohol. 2. Hydration for dry skin So the toner that you put on directly, it’s going to provide immediate moisture for your skin and it’s gonna create a Minimal layer of hydration for you.
The main reason for using your toner this way is for hydration So we want to recommend that you choose something That’s a little bit more viscous if your skin is really dry after cleansing, we want to recommend you this method.
Also, you can use your viscous toner with your cotton pads as well. If you want even a more hydrating, extra hydration effect, we want to recommend that you soak in your viscous toner with your cotton pad and leave it on your Skin the dry parts.
This is gonna be like a DIY sheet mask for you. So it’s important to choose what product you apply as a very first step of your skincare routine However, it’s also very important of how you use that product depending on how you use it You can actually maximize the effect of the product, This is something that we did talk about before in the basic steps, but if you’re dead skin cells are blocking your skin, It’s not gonna be able to fully absorb in all the goodness from your products 1.
Exfoliation Actually exfoliating your skin before the very first step of your skincare routine is very important because it’s gonna maximize the effect of your products. We want to recommend that after exfoliation to use a viscous product and when you do exfoliate, We wanna recommend that you avoid using your toner with a cotton pad.
2. Breaks between each product One thing that you do want to keep in mind is to take little breaks between each step of your skincare routine There are actually skincare ingredients that are only stable in certain pH.
Since these ngredients only work at a certain pH level, when they’re used with other products with different pH levels. Their effects may be lower. So when you use skincare products with different pH levels, It’s really important that you give little five-minute breaks between each step in your skincare routine 3.
Choosing the first skincare product that boosts the next step Since toners do have the lightest texture, people think that you have to apply toners first in your skincare routine, but this is not always the case There are certain serums or essences out there that has a more watery texture than your toner.
And you can use these first in your skincare routine and you use this first to be able to maximize the effect of the product so even if it’s a serum or an essence, it really doesn’t matter. You can use it on before your toner if the texture is lighter So this product here is an essence it hydrates your skin and also it helps to exfoliate.
If you want to use it with other products with different functions, how can we use it? In this case you use the lighter texture first, So it’s kind of easy to actually boost the effect of the ingredients that you want to use the most So now we know that toners don’t always come in at the very first step of your skincare routine.
Right, since there are so many products out there in the market. Sometimes it gets so overwhelming I mean, you don’t know what product to apply and you don’t know how to apply it and you get confused of what order you should apply Now if you were picky before of what product to apply as a very first step of your skincare routine, I hope that after this video that you use the proper first step in your skincare routine.
