The Correct Order to Apply Your Skincare Routine

Using the best skincare products possible is important, but if you want to maximize the benefits you can get from your moisturizer, serums, and more, applying your skincare routine in a particular way can help your skin absorb the product. A quick rule of thumb from Hope is to apply your products from the thinnest to thickest for optimal results. However, there’s no “perfect routine,” and there are multiple products and orders you can choose from depending on your skin type. Use this post as a guide, but feel free to experiment with what feels right for your skin.
The following steps follow after using your cleanser and toner to prep your skin.

Step 1: Essence

First off is an essence. While essences may have a similar texture to toners, essences are more focused on addressing skin concerns. Along with absorbing in the skin easily, essences are a great start to any skincare routine.
  • Includes clinically-proven actives and natural ferments to prep skin and create an optimal foundation for following skincare treatments.
  • Helps to plump skin, reverse fine lines, and improve resiliency and bounce.
  • Formulated with MUTHALOAD™ Core Technology to hydrate, protect, and repair the skin.

Step 2: Eye Cream

The next step is all about giving the skin around your eyes some TLC. Eye cream is important because the skin around the eye is delicate and can be at risk of showing wrinkles and crow’s feet. The best eye cream will hydrate the skin around your eye and reduce signs of aging.
  • Increases radiance and diminishes the appearance of dark circles.
  • Bio-fermented blend that boosts luminosity for wide awake eyes.
  • Skin-reconditioning MUTHALOAD™ Core Technology helps protect, hydrate, and repair skin.

Step 3: Serum

Next up is a serum, which will help protect your skin primarily from pigmentation and any UVA and UVB damage from being out in the sun.
Hope recommends: MUTHA™ No.1 Serum
  • Skin-reconditioning MUTHALOAD™ Core Technology helps protect, hydrate, and repair skin.
  • Includes stabilized vitamin C (THD) that’s 50 times more effective than other forms of vitamin C.
  • Reduces pigmentation, increases collagen, and prevents UVA/UVB damage.

Step 4: Cream

After the serum absorbs, it’s time to tie it together with a face cream that allows all the other products to melt in, while also improving your complexion.
Hope recommends: MUTHA™ Cream
  • A protective and nourishing moisturizer that preps the skin to take on the day.
  • Includes a powerful anti-stress blend of adaptogenic herbs and extracts to help combat harmful environmental stressors and aggressors.
  • The lightweight and silky formula with an aloe juice base absorbs easily and provides maximum hydration.

Step 5: Face Oil

Up next is a face oil to balance out your skin’s hydration. We recommend applying oils last to seal in all the benefits.
Hope recommends: MUTHA™ Face Oil
  • 22-nutrient-dense seed oil that protects, hydrates, and repairs.
  • Includes antioxidants and omega fatty acids, that replenish and lock in moisture while visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving complexion.
  • Includes nutrients like tsubaki, kalahari, and borage seed oils that absorb quickly for a no-shine glow.

Step 6: Sunscreen

The last step involved with your skincare routine is sunscreen. It may seem like an afterthought but it’s an important step to protecting your skin. Sunscreen can lower your risk of skin cancer and reduces aging signs by blocking UV lights. The American Cancer Society recommends using a SPF of 30 or higher to protect against UVA and UVB.
