How to apply skin care products for oil & dry skin in the right order?

You will be using skincare products every day. How do you apply? I mean in which order will you apply? Do you think the order doesn’t matter? But, actually it does.

Especially for dry and oily skin, the order in which you apply skincare products really makes a difference. We’ll tell you what’s the right way of applying skincare products?

A fresh start:

  • It is better to start with clean and clear skin before applying any product
  • Cleanse your face once or twice to wipe out any tan accumulated on the skin
  • Spraying a thermal water spray on your face helps break dirt and oil particles

 For oily skin

Body produced oils helps keep skin healthy, but if it is too much then it leads to blemishes and acne flare-ups. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to cut this oiliness and keep your skin glow.

  • Cleanser- Prefer products containing benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or beta-hydroxy acid
  • Eye cream
  • Acne treatment
  • Moisturizer
  • SPF

Oily skin has something called serum that shrunken the skin barrier. Applying skin care products in this disorder can help you get rid of any problems.

For dry skin

Dry skin requires products that consist of barrier-repairing ingredients. These products help you to act younger thereby your skin can maintain adequate water levels.

  • Cleanser
  • Eye cream
  • Moisturizer- For ex: serums, gels, lotions, creams, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging,
  • Acne treatment
  • SPF

What you should avoid?

  • Soaps
  • Cleansers that consist of sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate
  • Products made of irritating ingredients (i.e. alcohol, menthol, peppermint, mint, citrus, eucalyptus, fragrance)
  • Rinsing with hot water
  • Abrasive scrubs that contain fruit and nut fragments
  • Loofahs

In the case of very dry skin, applying pure plant oils such as olive oil and jojoba seed oil after moisturizer can make a difference. Exposure to dry environments, cold weather or air conditioners can be a problem. You can avoid this by making use of a humidifier.
