Even if you’re armed with the most effective products and ingredients in skin care, you might not be getting the most out of them if you’re using them in the wrong order. Yes, there is a bit of a science to the way you order your skin care routine. But the good news is that once you get it down, making a few tweaks to the way you apply your products can actually help them work better to keep your skin looking and feeling clear, smooth, and healthy.
The first step in every skin care routine should to be to cleanse with a gentle, yet powerful face wash. That way, any dirt, oil, makeup, or other debris that may be trapped in your pores can be swept away, leaving a fresh, clean surface for the rest of your products.
AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean is an excellent moisturizing facial cleanser that contains a potent blend of plant-derived amino acids to not only sweep away dirt and debris, but to also help smooth skin texture and revive a dull, lackluster complexion.
After you’ve cleansed your skin, exfoliation can help to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and other debris that your cleanser might not be able to address. Once this layer is sloughed off, you’ll be left with the fresh, smooth layer of skin underneath. This can help the rest of your skin care products to work much more effectively, as their ingredients will be better able to penetrate the epidermis, the outer protective layer, to the underlying dermis and hypodermis.
Keep in mind, however, that those with sensitive skin should gradually introduce exfoliation into their routine. Depending on your skin type and condition, you may want to exfoliate only every few days or possibly just once each week .
3. Treat with Serums
Now that your skin is clean and properly primed for additional products, you can custom-tailor this next step to fit your individual needs. If the appearance of skin aging is a concern, you might want to try an anti-aging serum like AminoGenesis Paranormal EFX. This is an anti-aging super serum that utilizes a revolutionary blend of scientifically advanced ingredients that work together to fight the many signs of aging. In combination with the ingredient Regeneplex 4 (a powerful new secret for more gorgeous skin), Paranormal EFX also contains 17 amino acids to help promote collagen and elastin synthesis, as well as vitamins A, E, and D.
Once you’ve applied any serums or spot treatments that you want to use, the next step is to apply a skin-nourishing moisturizer. AminoGenesis Cocoon is powerful enough to be used on the entire body, yet gentle enough for use on the face as well. Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized can help to improve its function and overall appearance. And because Cocoon also contains a blend of amino acids and peptides, it can help to revitalize your skin by working to prevent oxidative damage caused by UV rays and air pollution.
Rain or shine, sunscreen should be a staple in your daily skin care routine all year-round . When you apply it, however, it should always be the very last step, as layering other products on top of it can hinder its effectiveness.
It is possible, though, to combine steps 4 and 5 into one single step, provided the moisturizer that you’re using contains at least SPF 15. AminoGenesis Wrinkle Arrest is an anti-aging day cream that’s been formulated with an effective blend of SPF 30 to offer sun protection while you moisturize and nourish your skin. Use this product if fine lines, wrinkles, or discoloration are concerns.
Once you have the most appropriate products for your skin care needs, simply make sure you’re applying them in the correct order, and you should be well on your way to seeing smoother, healthier-looking skin in no time.
