What are the correct skin care steps?


Skin care is a long-term job like raising children. Even if you have natural skin, you need skin care.

When it comes to skin care, it's not complicated. The most important thing is that you only need to understand the skin care steps and match them with skin care products that suit you, and you can follow the rules for skin care in the future. Today, I will introduce you to the correct skin care steps for your reference!

A brief description of the correct skin care steps:

The morning skincare steps are as follows: Cleanser-Lotion-Eye Cream-Essence-Lotion/Cream-Sunscreen

Apply in order of texture from light to heavy, and the nighttime skin care steps are relatively complicated.

Regarding the eye cream steps, the eye cream steps are actually more flexible. It can be used at any step after the lotion, but it is recommended to use it before the essence as much as possible. The skin around the eyes is very thin, and the absorption of nutrients is limited. If you apply the eye cream and then apply the essence, it will lead to incomplete absorption, so the effect is very weak.

There's also the issue of lotion. In fact, lotions and creams have the same properties and depend on the needs of the individual skin. If you need to use lotion and cream at the same time, it is recommended to use the lotion first, then the cream.


Skin care step 1. Clean

Before skin care and maintenance, cleaning is always the first step, don't underestimate cleaning, it's very important!

1. Makeup remover (night)

Use a makeup remover to remove any makeup you use during the day.

Note: Even if you only apply sunscreen and sunscreen, you will need to use a makeup remover.

2. Cleaning

Use a facial cleanser to wash away skin residue. Choose a mild face wash during the day and a strong face wash at night.

3. Cleansing Mask

It is generally used at night, especially if the skin is more sensitive, so don't use it more. This type of mask is usually used for 15 minutes, then rinsed or scraped off.

If using facial cleansers and facial cleansers, wash the edges of your face. Also, don't leave a cleanser or mask on your hairline edges or on your nose. It can clog pores and cause acne.


Skin care step 2. Skin primer

1. lotion

It is our commonly used toner, the main function is to clean the skin, adjust the pH of the skin, and quickly replenish water.

Recommendations: Use a toner for oily skin, a toner for normal skin, a toner for dry skin, a toner for combination skin T-zone, and a repair toner for sensitive skin.

2. Muscle fluid

It can increase the absorption of subsequent skin care products, activate cells and prepare nutrients for cells. Use after toner and before serum/cream.


Skin care step 3. Nutrition

1. Eye cream

The eye cream is designed to protect the area around the eyes, prevent eye skin problems and reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.

2. Essence

The step of applying the serum to the face is an effective nourishing step, using a variety of serums to correct and repair skin problems. For the eye cream and serum steps, it is recommended to use the eye cream first. The skin around the eyes is thin and the absorption of nutrients is restricted. Apply eye cream after wiping the essence, it will not be fully absorbed.


Skin care step 4. Water lock separation

1. Lock in water (lotion or cream)

Girls often ask what lotions and creams to use, what to use first, and what to use next. In fact, these two effects are similar, both are water locks. Although the moisturizing effect of the cream is high, it is relatively oily, so generally use a cream in winter and a lotion in summer.

2. Isolation + sunscreen (daytime only)

Sunscreen is the last step in skin care, don't forget to use sunscreen. Otherwise, you will be more prone to sun spots. When the UV rays are not strong, you can use sunscreen. If I need to apply sunscreen and sunscreen, which one should I apply first?

Generally, sunscreens are chemical sunscreens that need to penetrate the skin to be effective. Applying a primer first may reduce the effectiveness of the sunscreen.
