How to Use a Serum, Face Oil and Moisturiser Together

Our face routines are generally becoming more complex with more products included than the routines of years ago. This is great for our skin but also does cause some questions as to how to use everything together, and especially the best way to use a serum, face oil and moisturiser. At Nakin we have all of these products in our natural anti-ageing face products routine, and with this we have suggested ways to use the products.

When it comes to using treatments and moisturisers together, we would recommend using the serum first, then the oil, and then the moisturiser. Our Performance Face serum has the most potent actives in it such as the hibiscus peptide, which will then be able to better reach the skin cells when applied onto freshly cleansed skin. The nature of the oil means that when our Revitalising Face Oil is applied it can still seep into the skin cells over the serum to calm, nourish and hydrate. Then applying either our Matt Formula Face Cream or Active Dew Face cream on top of the oil will seal everything in, plus provide more hydration and nourishment, as well as an invisible layer of protection from things like pollution.

This is how we would suggest to use them, but having said this if you like to use another method and that way is currently working well for you, then you will still get many benefits from the products. Everyone has such unique skin that sometimes different methods can work well.

Using a serum, face oil, and moisturiser together can create a powerful skincare regimen to keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and protected. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to layer these products effectively:

  • Cleanse Your Face: Start with a gentle cleanser like ours to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup from your skin. 
  • Apply Serum: Serums are typically the lightest formulations. Use a 1-3 pumps of our serum and gently pat it into your face and neck, focusing on areas needing extra attention. Allow the serum to fully absorb before moving to the next step.
  • Use Face Oil: After the serum has absorbed, apply 1-2 pumps of our face oil. Warm the oil between your hands and press it into your skin. This step helps to calm and lock in the hydration provided by the serum, plus add an extra layer of nourishment.
  • Moisturise: Finally, apply our moisturiser to seal in all the goodness. This step helps to form a protective barrier on your skin, keeping it hydrated throughout the day.

By following these steps, you can ensure each product is effectively absorbed and maximises its benefits, leaving your skin feeling radiant and healthy. However, it's important to note that not all products may work well together. It's essential to read the instructions and ingredients of each product carefully before layering them.

Additionally, make sure you are using products that are suitable for your skin type, at Nakin we always use lightweight formulations that all skin loves, with a natural gentle fragrance, or fragrance-free formula.

Lastly, don't forget to exfoliate regularly with our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic to remove dead skin cells and allow your skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin. And remember, consistency is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy skincare routine. Stick to these steps daily, and you'll soon notice a significant improvement in the overall appearance and health of your skin. Find out more about Nakin online at www.nakinskincare.com
