We know skincare is hard… between the toners, the serums, the a.m. moisturizers and the p.m. retinoids, and that little bottle of oil you got on sale but don’t really know how to use, your bathroom routine can quickly turn into a real-life version of the confused math lady meme.
But here’s the thing: If you don’t apply your products in the correct order, or if you pair the wrong toner with, say, the wrong moisturizer, you could end up rendering your products straight-up ineffective—or, even worse, give yourself an irritated, sensitive face. See? Complicated.
So to save you from randomly slapping on a bunch of junk in the vague hope that you’re doing it right, I went ahead and list the exact order to apply your skincare, both in the morning and at night. Prepare to feel very, very smart—and very, very glow-y.
