Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my career in beauty, products, treatments, salon/spa and retail. Hope you enjoy my writing and maybe gain some knowledge from it!

Thinnest to Thickest

Thinnest to Thickest

'What order do I use my products?' is a question I am often asked. The best way to remember it is 'Thinnest to Thickest'. 

After cleansing the skin, you would begin layering your products with the thinnest product, a serum.  When applying make sure that the first products onto the skin are water based and not oil.  Oil will not penetrate water so these should go on last before your final cream.  

Serums are packed with active ingredients and are made with smaller molecules than those in a cream.  

A simple analogy for you is; take two glasses filled with crushed ice.

Two jugs, one filled with skimmed milk and one filled with double cream.  

Pour the two jugs together over the ice and you will see that the skimmed milk will go straight to the bottom of the glass, whilst the double cream will work its way down.  

This is what is happening with your products.  

I hope this helps.
