How to Layer Skin Care Products for Maximum Results

How to Layer Skin Care Products for Maximum Results

Jun '20

With so many crisp cleansers, perfecting toners, skin-enriching serums, emollient moisturizers, and other superior skin care products out there today, it’s easy to see why one may get overwhelmed at the idea of applying all these products in the correct order.  

After all, we purchase high quality products with the intent of reaping their full beauty benefits. If not properly layered, we run the risk of cancelling out certain benefits. Moreover, combining certain active skin care ingredients has the potential to cause negative interactions that can harm the skin.  

There’s a lot to navigate—but fortunately, SkinCenter is here to simplify the process for you. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to properly apply your skin care products in the correct order to achieve maximum results… 

The easiest rule to follow? Apply your skin care products in order of consistency (from most-fluid to most-emollient). 


  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Serum
  4. Eye Cream
  5. Spot Treatment
  6. Moisturizer
  7. SPF


  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Eye Cream

  5. Mask or Face Oil
  6. Moisturizer/Night Cream
