In this guide, we'll delve into the nuances of skincare application, offering insights to ensure you're getting the most out of your beloved products and making them last longer.

1. Apply your skincare products to damp skin

Before reaching for your favourite oil-based serums or daily moisturizer, take a moment to dampen your skin before your start the application process. You can use either toner or water, which will assist with the absorption of serums into your skin.

Step #1: Toner or room-temperature water

Step #2: Serums

Step #3: Moisturizer

First a toner or room-temperature water to cleanse the skin, then serum(s) are up next to treat your specific skincare goals or problem areas, and lastly (and most importantly), a moisturizer to lock in hydration, as well as the products you used in steps one and two.

3. Use a quartz roller to improve the absorption of products
