To get the benefits of face serum
when applying multiple, you need to layer products correctly. There are many examples of the order of skincare products and how to structure a skincare routine, but when do you use serums
? Serums generally fall after the cleansing and toning steps but before moisturiser or sunscreen (if a morning routine). This is due to the varying textures of these products - you start with the lightest and finish with the thickest. With that in mind, how to layer face serums is easy – it’s the same process as your skin care routine! The lightest serum will absorb the quickest, giving your skin time to prepare for the thicker layers, so layer serums based on consistency. You wouldn’t want to apply a thick serum then have a light one just sitting on top.
Another way to use multiple serums is to rotate. Using specific serums only in the morning and others at night will help you get the best results and avoid them cancelling each other out. You can then also swap out different morning and night serums on different days to get all the beneficial ingredients.
