When applying my skin products at night/morning, and I’m applying like 5 different things… how in the world can by skin absorb the entire product? And what order is best?
Our skin does not absorb all the products that we apply. (Gasp) Depending on the size and chemical properties of the ingredients two things can happen. If the ingredients are small and permeable they will be taken in by the skin and delivered to the skin cell. Or, the product ingredients are too large to be taken into the skin which in turn they go between the skin cell and have a “reservoir effect” and in time will absorb into the skin. This is why it is very important to invest in your skin care products and skin care professional.
In applying several products at night it is my recommendation that you think thinnest to thickest. Start with your toner, eye cream, then your serums, then correctives (i.e. retinol) and finish with your moisturizer.
