How to Layer Your Skin-Care Products in the Correct Order

Instead of just slapping five creams – then washing your face because, seriously, these things are heavy – follow the leadership of professionals. Start light.Seros – the finest products – go first, because a) it just makes sense and b) "they provide active ingredients for skin more efficiently," says Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist from Boston. Also, they are easy to customize. Choose two or three serums that address each of your concerns: formulas with peptides for wrinkles (we like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair) salicylic acid for oily skin (try The common 2% salicylic acid solution) and licorice or aloe to soothe redness (as Ultra Repair Beauty Moisturizing Serum First Aid) .2.

Put them in dry areas after creams – as a rule, oils can penetrate moisturizers, but not vice versa. We like Rodin Luxury Face Oil, with sunflower seeds and jojoba oils. Skip the oil if you are using more than two serums under the moisturizer – at some point you can't help but look greasy. Do not forget the protection. "Sunscreen is your last step in the morning," says Jeannette Graf, dermatologist in Great Neck, New York.

Have a drink, it's not as sexy as a glass of whiskey. But wrap up your nightly routine with a retinoid It makes you look so much younger. (Every dermatologist recommends this super-ingredient.)
