When applying AminoGenesis products, there are a few rules to abide by.
Apply Lightest to Heaviest
The first rule of thumb when combining products is to apply the thinnest/lightest product first, followed by a slightly heavier product, and then an even heavier one, until you finish with the richest cream on top.
The reason? More hydrating agents create a thicker barrier, so it can be difficult for other skin care creams to reach the skin afterwards.
You should be able to feel which cream or moisturizer is the heaviest. However, there are documented “strengths” of moisturizing agents, as can be found in the textbook Aesthetic Medicine: Art and Techniques,amongst other sources. Here they are via the text:
LIGHTER (use first):
- Jojoba oil
HEAVIER (use last)
- Petrolatum (not found in AminoGenesis products)
- Mineral oil (not found in AminoGenesis products)
Another rule of thumb? Always apply sunscreen last.
Always start with the lightest product first, though make sure that you apply your sunscreen last once your other products have settled/dried.
