The Correct Order To Apply Skincare

The Correct Order To Apply Skincare

With all the excitement buzzing around skincare, it isn't unusual for misinformation to arise regarding the millions of products available to consumers. You listen to one video and hear one thing, then read a blog and hear another.

Kate Ryan Skincare values the education and safety of our customers, especially when it comes to using our products! So here it is, the one and done skincare blog that tells you the exact and correct order of applying your Kate Ryan products.

Step 1: Cleanse

The first step in any skincare routine is to cleanse! Strip your skin of any dirt, impurities, makeup, and more to prep it for the rest of your routine. Kate Ryan has different cleansers to choose from, and you will be sure to find one that fits your skins needs!

Over here, we love double cleansing, so we suggest to always start off your skincare with our Nutritive Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover. This will leave your skin clean and nourished, with the right moisture balance. 

After the first cleanse with the oil-based cleanser, you will want to go in with a water-based one next. Kate Ryan has three different options for you to choose from. Pick which one is right for your skin type:

  • Gentle Daily Cleanser:  A 2-in-1 cleansing foam and exfoliator that gently yet thoroughly removes makeup and impurities. Excellent for dry, normal/combo, and oily skin.
  • Salicylic Cleanser: Exfoliates the surface of your skin and penetrates into pores to help combat blemishes and inflammation, fight free radicals, and promote elasticity and firmness. Excellent for normal, combination, oily, and blemish-prone skin.
  • Clear & Simple Charcoal Face Soap Bar: Efficiently and effectively cleans your face while dynamic ingredients work to remove toxins and other impurities. Excellent for all skin types, but recommended to only use every 2-3 days for dryer and more sensitive skin. 

    Step 2: Toner

    Some people love toner, and some don't! If toner is for you, this will be the next step, and Kate Ryan has the perfect one for you.

    Our Balancing Nutrient Toner is made to tone and combat the appearance of aging. It is full of antioxidants, vitamins and plant extracts to freshen, soothe and leave your complexion comfortable and healthy. And with all this, it is gentle enough for ALL skin types!

    Step 3: Serums

    When using multiple serums, it’s important to apply them in the correct order to maximize their effectiveness. Generally, the rule of thumb is to apply products from thinnest to thickest consistency and consider the active ingredients to avoid irritation.

    Three perfect serums (in the correct order) to add to your routine from Kate Ryan are:

      Step 4: Eye Cream

      While ours is more of a serum, the Advanced Eye Therapy Complex is an essential in any skincare routine.

      It is a multifunctional product that will leave your eyes feeling and looking refreshed.

      Step 5: Moisturize 

      For an evening routine, this is the final step. (For morning routines, NEVER forget your sunscreen!)

      Using a moisturizer will lock in all the serums you applied. Kate Ryan has three different options of moisturizers for you to choose from:

      • Total Nutrition Night Repair Complex: A powerful combination of nutrients and antioxidants to hydrate, protect, repair past damage, and boost collagen production. Works for normal, combination, oily, and normal-to-dry skin types. 
      • Complete Daily Moisture: A perfect solution for day and night that improves the condition of your skin as it moisturizes and protects. Perfect for all skin types except dry.
      • Revitalizing Intensive Daily Moisture: Our richest blend of natural facial oils, delivers deep moisture while penetrating dry skin easily with no residue or heaviness left behind. Excellent for dry and sensitive skin.

          Pro Tip: Allow all products to sink in for a minute or two before applying the next.
