layering your skin care for fall
Skincare can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. With the multitude of products available today, it can be difficult to figure out which ones work best with your skin, how to use them efficiently, and even what order to use them in. We pulled together a list of some of our favorite layering tips and tricks to help your skin look and feel its best:
- Always begin your regimen with clean skin. We love to start off our regimen with double cleansing to ensure that our skin is clean and nourished. To double cleanse, use an oil based cleanser like the Nourishing Oil Cleanser to remove makeup and impurities on the surface of the skin, and follow with a gentle, soapier cleanser- like our Refreshing Cleanser– to unclog pores and flush out environmental pollutants that hide deeper in your skin.
- Start light and don’t skimp on your essence. Layering skin care products is a lot like layering clothes, you want to start with the thinnest products first and build up to the thickest. Our essences’ consist of extremely small molecules, which allows them to be easily absorbed by the skin. These small molecules help prep your skin to better absorb targeted products with larger molecules, like serums. Since serums deliver powerful, targeted ingredients, you’ll want to ensure that your skin is prepped to absorb all of the benefits of your serum. We recommend saturating your face with the essences and applying your serum while your face is still wet. If you’re using our Concentrated Brightening Essence, skip the cotton ball and use clean hands to reduce product waste.

- Cocktail your products. Sometimes if our skin needs a little extra love or we can’t decide which products to use, we’ll just mix them together. Adding a drop of our Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil or Beautifying Face Oil to your moisturizer is a fantastic way to give yourself the boost of hydration when your skin’s feeling extra dry. You can also mix any of our serums together for a customizable super-charged treatment. Tata loves to cocktail her products to get as many benefits as possible into her regimen.
- Create a moisture barrier. Not only do moisturizers help add hydration into the skin, they seal in the benefits of the essences and serums you’ve just applied, helping them achieve maximum results. Dry skin? Try our new Creme Riche, it’s ultra velvety and packed with twelve sources of age-defying botanicals that plump up the appearance of the skin.
