What order should I use the various facial cosmetics in?


Your daily skin care routine includes six steps. Find out what order you should use these different products in

Keeping skin healthy and beautiful requires daily care, which often involves the combined use of different products. Not sure what order to use your beauty products in? Here are some tips:

1. Cleansing

- Soap
Use a soap or foam suited to your skin type to cleanse it. Chronos cleansing foam has a light texture ideal for all skin types. It eliminates impurities and leaves skin feeling soft.

- Exfoliant
Exfoliating helps to regenerate the skin and this step should be included in your routine once a week, or every two weeks for dry skin. For combination or oily skin, you can repeat the process up to twice a week. Exfoliation should always be done after cleansing and before applying any lotion. Chronos microdermabrasion exfoliating cream is the perfect choice. Its formula includes bamboo microparticles and instantly regenerates the epidermis and evens out the skin's texture.

- Toner
Toners rebalance the skin's pH level and prepare it for other skin care products, such as facial moisturiser, make-up or sunscreen. This advice applies to both morning and evening routines. If you have normal to dry skin, choose a hydrating toner, if it is combination or oily, opt for an astringent toner.

2. Intensive care

- Super-concentrated care
Products to treat your epidermis deep down have a higher concentration of active ingredients and are more effective. They should be applied to clean, dry skin and their texture is designed to sink into the skin quickly and easily. The lifting effect of the Intensive pro-firming serum, for example, is immediate and your skin regains its firmness and elasticity in just 30 days.

3. Hydration and sun protection

- Moisturiser
Exposed to the sun and pollution all day long, the moisture level in our skin drops, accelerating the ageing process. This is it's so important to know your skin type and to use moisturiser more effectively to protect your skin and its vitality. You can choose a product with appropriate active ingredients, such as an anti-ageing or mattifying product. The eye contour, which is a more fragile area, requires a specific product.

- Sun protection
Use appropriate sun protection (never less than SPF 30 for the face) that protects skin from damage caused by sun exposure. It should be the last product applied as it forms a protective layer on the skin that protects it from UVA and UVB rays. After this step, you can move on to make-up. Dermatologists recommend reapplying sun protection throughout the day to ensure maximum protection.
