Are you layering your skincare all wrong?

by Kelli Parisian September 06, 2018

I get a lot of questions asking if the order of skincare layering really matters, and guess what? It actually does! The whole idea is to give your skin the full benefits of each of the products you apply.  So then how do you effectively order each of your products? 

After cleansing, the golden rule to layering is lightest to heaviest. Products that have a low viscosity also tend to have a smaller particle size, meaning they can penetrate more deeply into your skin. Finish with your heavier moisturizer to seal the deal.

Here's the problem--surveys have found only 40% of women actually wash their face before going to bed (much less product layering).  I'm always amazed by this. Even if you haven't put makeup on during the day--pollution, sweat and cooking grime are sleeping with you. Ick!

Let's assume you're cleansing your skin. The next thing applied is a facial toner. Toners can be used on a cotton pad and then wiped over your entire face, ensuring pores are totally clean. Our Tonique toner may also be used as a finishing spray - mist two sprays on the face and release a blast of powerful perfect aging AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) to the skin.

Next, apply your serum. Serums are typically the most potent perfect aging treatment in any skincare line. They should be applied, then allowed to "rest" on the skin for a minute or two. I always suggest that my clients use this time to brush their teeth.

Follow with any other target treatments. For example, we love the Parisian's Pure Indulgence Pro-Collagen Concentrate. It supports the collagen layer of your skin, keeping skin appearing firm and toned. Rosehip and Hibiscus make this a stand out performer.

Next, apply your moisturizer. Daytime moisturizers with SPF50 are best. At night, apply your richer night creme. Hydrated and moisturized skin is essential to fighting wrinkles and blemishes. This includes oily skin types!

Last but not least, pat your eye creme or gel around the delicate eye area, using your ring finger.

Surveys suggest that a good skincare regimen, including product layering, along with a healthy lifestyle is the best way to slow the signs of aging.

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging. 

Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's. 

Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.

Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
