What Order To Use Your Skincare

Should I exfoliate before applying toner? Which goes first, moisturizer or sunscreen? It can be difficult to discern which product to apply first.The order you apply skincare directly affects your skin chemistry and microbiome. Proper layering not only allows for better product absorption but also increases product effectiveness.

Don’t know where to start? We’re here to steer you in the right direction, follow this order to achieve all your skincare goals!


Often viewed as a mundane step in your routine, cleansing plays an extremely important role in skin's health! A proper cleanse removes excess dirt, makeup, and impurities while maintaining the optimal pH of your skin. With proper cleansing, your skin will be prepped for the rest of your products. This should always be the first step in any routine!

Exfoliation encourages skin cell turnover and is a great way to get brighter and smoother skin. Whether it's a chemical or physical exfoliator, it's recommended to use after cleansing the skin. Exfoliants help to soak in and better absorb the goodness your other skincare products have to offer.

Skincare products should be layered from thinnest to thickest. Applying a lightweight and watery toner further helps preps your skin for the rest of your routine.

After applying toner, a serum or ampoule is a great way to deliver active ingredients to your skin! Serums or ampoule has a slightly thicker consistency than toners and tend to target specific skin issues. If you have multiple serums to target different skin issues, it follows the same method of applying your products from a light to heavy consistency.

To seal it all in, apply a moisturizer as one of the concluding steps to your skincare routine. When you lock in the products you already applied, you’re trapping all the hydrating and active ingredients. Most importantly, moisturizers act as a barrier that keeps in moisture and reduces transepidermal water loss.
