The Exact Order to Apply Your Skin Care Products Each and Every Day

As much as we love a quick five-minute routine, it’s important to take the time to make sure our skin is equipped to tackle the hazards we face every single day. From UV rays to pollution, it all takes a toll.

Although we spend lots of money on our skin care regimens, the best toners and masks won’t work if they aren’t applied the right way. So we decided to break down the right order to apply your skin care products for maximum efficacy. (FYI: We skipped lip scrubs and eye masks, but you should still add them to your lineup as needed.) At night, repeat steps one through six and just add a retinol product before finishing things off with your face oil of choice.
