The Complete Guide to Applying Your Skincare Products in the Right Order

Taking care of your skin is a crucial part of any beauty routine. Lemongrass Spa offers a variety of clean and effective skincare products designed to nourish and rejuvenate your skin. To get the best results, it’s essential to apply these products in the correct order. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you make the most of your skincare routine.


Step 1: Cleanser

Start with a clean slate. Use a facial cleanser to remove dirt, makeup, and impurities from your skin. Apply a small amount of cleansing gel to your damp face, gently massage in circular motions, and rinse with lukewarm water. This step ensures your skin is ready to absorb the beneficial ingredients from the subsequent products.


Step 2: Exfoliator

Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion. By removing old, dead skin cells, you uncover healthy, baby skin cells. Apply a small amount of gentle exfoliant to your damp skin, massage gently, and rinse thoroughly. Avoid over-exfoliating, as this can irritate your skin. This step should only be done once or twice a week.


Step 3: Toner

After cleansing and exfoliating, apply a facial mist or toner. Toners help to balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for better absorption of serums and moisturizers. Spritz the toner onto a cotton pad and gently swipe it across your face or spray it directly onto your skin for a refreshing boost.


Step 4: Serum

Serums are concentrated treatments that target specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, dark spots, or dehydration and are best absorbed onto damp skin. Apply a few drops of serum onto your freshly misted face and neck. Gently pat the serum into your skin, allowing it to absorb fully.


Step 5: Eye Creme

The delicate skin around your eyes requires special care. Use an eye creme to hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines and puffiness. Apply a small amount using your ring finger, gently tapping it around the eye area, careful not to get any creme in your eye.


Step 6: Moisturizer

Hydration is key to healthy, glowing skin. It’s important to choose a moisturizer specific to your skin type: oily, acne-prone, dry or sensitive, combination, or normal. Apply a generous amount to your face and neck, massaging it in using upward, circular motions. This step locks in moisture and serums and keeps your skin soft and supple throughout the day or night.


Step 7: Sunscreen (Morning Routine)

If you’re following this routine in the morning, don’t forget to apply sunscreen.  I love the Sun Bum Original SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Lotion.  This lightweight, non-greasy formula should be applied generously to your face every day before heading out – winter, spring, summer, and fall!


Step 8: Night Creme (Evening Routine)

For your evening routine, switch the sunscreen with a nourishing night cream. I like to apply a heavier creme for a rich and hydrating overnight treatment.


Extra Tips:



Treat your skin to a mask once a week.  Apply after cleansing and before toning for an extra boost of benefits. Since this is a once-a-week step, it can be easy to forget.  I mask on Mondays, so if you can remember “Mask Monday”, you’re more likely to remember this important weekly step.


Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. You should consume half your body weight in water each day!  (I know, easier said than done!)


By following these steps, you can ensure that your skincare products are working their best to give you a healthy, radiant complexion. Remember, consistency is key, so stick to your routine and enjoy the results!
