Use products to suit your skin type
There no point coughing up all that money when it doesn’t work for your skin. Your skin is never black and white. You could have dry skin but still be dehydrated. Foaming gels strip the skin so aren’t suitable for dry/dehydrated skin where as the are perhaps better for oily skin. Although I personally don’t like foam/gel cleanser. I think milk/cream/ balm cleanser are much better for the skin no matter what your skin type.
Apply the products in the right order
In the morning your skincare should look like this: cleanse, tone,eye cream (oils/serums create a barrier that eye cream can’t get through) , serum, facial oil, moisturiser, SPF.
In the evening it should look something like this: Cleanse to remove make up, cleanser to clean the skin, tone, eye cream, acne treatment if you have one, serum, oil, moisturiser.
Obviously not everyone will have all these product to do all the steps so just skip to the next one you do have.
Switch it Up
Most of us have a few skin product that we could swap for the ones we usually use. I always find that my skin looks better have I try new products. This doesn’t mean change it up everyday, but do try new serums if there lying around a little unloved.
