Why Order Matters In Your Skin Care Routine

Over the years, skincare technology and research have blossomed and advanced, so much so that we no longer need to go on quests for the fountain of youth – instead, we just need the right anti-ageing products that best suit our skin.

But having great products is only one side of the coin. In order to reap the full benefits of your skincare products, it’s also important to apply products in the right order. If applied in the wrong order, you run the risk of diluting the effectiveness of the skin care products – and no one wants that.

So, to ensure that you enjoy the maximum benefits of your beloved ARTISTRY products, here are 4 simple steps to guide you on the correct order of product application:

Step 1 Cleanse

Step 1. Cleanse: Wash your face

This one is pretty straightforward. In order for skin to absorb products correctly, it needs to be clean. It’s especially important to remove makeup and any remnants of the day before you go to bed.

Start with a makeup remover, such as Artistry Skin Nutrition Cream Makeup Remover. Then select a cleanser that is correct for your skin type. ARTISTRY SKIN NUTRITION has a personalised solutions for different skin types.

On the oily side? Consider Artistry Skin Nutrition Balancing Jelly Cleanser, which effectively rids skin of dirt, impurities and excess oil and while leaving it feeling clean and comfortable, not dry or taut.

Meanwhile, for dry skin try the Artistry Skin Nutrition Hydrating Mousse Cleanser or even the Artistry Skin Nutrition Renewing Foaming Cleanser for very dry or mature skin. These cleansers work up into a cushiony lather that leaves the skin feeling clean and conditioned.

Step 2 Tone

Step 2. Tone: Prepping your skin

After cleansing, apply toner to rebalance and prepare your skin for the remaining products. Old school toners used to strip skin of moisture with harsh alcohols, but today’s versions condition and nourish.

Different toners have different purposes, so choose one for your skin’s needs. Artistry Skin Nutrition offers toners for normal-to-dry skin, normal-to-oily skin or mature dry skin, but they all include White Chia Seed Gel, which works to support the balance of your skin’s microbiome.

What’s your skin’s microbiome? It’s the collection of good and bad microorganisms found there. When they are in a healthy balance, it helps prevent skin stressors from developing and that helps stabilise your skin’s healthy look!

Step 3 Treat

Step 3. Treat: Focus on your skin care concerns

Now that you’ve cleansed and prepped your skin, it’s time to address any skin concerns with treatments and serums. Products in this step are typically concentrated formulas meant to reduce acne, wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, etc.

The Artistry Signature Select Personalized Serum range allows you to choose up to three serums in one when you select the specific amplifiers designed for your skin concerns: hydration, anti-wrinkle, firming, anti-spot, brightening.

Step 4 Moisturise

Step 4. Moisturise: Lock it in

For the final step, it’s time to lock in all those earlier products with a moisturiser. Not only does a moisturiser provide, well, moisture, it seals in your toners and treatments to make those products even more effective.

Choose the Hydrating, Balancing, Renewing or Firming moisturiser from the Artistry Skin Nutrition line based on your skin type. For daytime use, make sure it includes sunscreen to protect from harmful UV rays.

You’re done!

That’s it, just four simple steps. Pick up your preferred Artistry skin care products from Amway.sg, follow the above order to maximise effectiveness, and you’re good to go.
