Knowing what product to apply when can be a bit tricky, we get that. As a general rule of thumb, we always say that products should be applied in order of thickness.
That being said, if you're looking for a more detailed routine, here's our definitive guide for daytime skincare.
Not everyone needs to do a full cleanse in the morning (especially if you have sensitive or dry skin), but we do always say to do a quick face wash to clean off any debris that may have come up while sleeping.
We recommend: Our Mixed Greens Nutrient-Rich Cleanser (for both day and night!). Our gel cleanser is formulated with a daily dose of mixed greens, vitamin C and nourishing superfruits to remove dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities while also balancing the skin's pH. (Gel cleansers are also perfect for those with sensitive/dry skin, by the way).
Toners still have a bit of a stigma from back when they were all alcohol-based (yikes!), but toners of today are actually super helpful and often contain tons of hydrating and/or exfoliating ingredients that truly do help the skin and are an important part of your skincare regimen.
Who doesn’t love a good serum, right? Essentially serums are a concentrated dose of antioxidants and hydrators that really amp up your skin when applied. In the morning we always recommend a vitamin C based serum like our Vitamin C Serum 22%. Our potent serum is formulated with a vitamin C complex made up of a highly stabilized l-ascorbic acid encapsulation and bioactive fruit blend that helps brighten and shield skin from environmental stressors for a healthier, more youthful looking complexion.
An eye cream is a must and we love using it twice a day for maximum results. We recommend: Our Multi-Peptide Eye Cream for morning (and night!). Our multi-peptide blend hydrates, brightens & smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
Next step in your skincare routine should always be a moisturizer. We recommend using a version that also contains broad-spectrum SPF because you can never have too much sun protection.
Once your moisturizer has absorbed into your skin, you’ll want to top it with a face oil, as they seal in all of the ingredients and moisture you’ve been applying to your face.
We recommend: Our Plant Squalane Face Oil or our Vitamin C Face Oil, depending on whether or not your skin can handle two vitamin C products at once (we mentioned the Vitamin C Serum 22% above).
Finally, as your last daytime step, you always want to apply SPF. Sunscreen isn’t trying to penetrate anything so it’s totally ok that you apply your face oil before your SPF. Always look for the words “broad spectrum” when shopping for sunscreen and apply it liberally on both your face and body.
