What Order to Apply Your Skin Care Products

In today’s skin care Q&A video I answer a very common skin care question: “What is the correct order to apply my skin care products?” Layering your skin care products can seem complicated, but in this video I make it easy to remember using an acronym! Watch now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnxKkU60GIk


An easy acronym to remember the correct order to apply your skin care products/how to layer your skin care products is ***STMS: Simple To Manage Skincare***

This stands for:

*S* Serums – If a product is a serum formulation – these will have typically have “serum” in the name (i.e. Green Tea Serum, Copper Peptide Serum) then these should be applied first, closest to the skin.

*T* Treatment Products – acne products, anti-aging products, vitamin & antioxidant treatments (i.e. Vasseur Skincare’s ALA cream or Ester C cream). The order you apply products within this category does not make a big difference.

*M* Moisturizers, this includes your regular moisturizer, your hydrating night creams/day creams and eye cream

*S* Sunscreen should always go on top (in your daytime skin care routine)

  1. You know it’s just the same in any other field.
    You would think history showes us at least anything, but alas.
    Feel free to disagree but the world changes, and we have no control whatsoever over it.
    For instance, If only Barack had any balls to put Russian bear to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome WW3.
    Great post, thanks!
