We all want our skin care products to work as best as they can, but do you know how to most effectively apply them? The trick is to prepare your skin each time with a cleanser and a toner before applying your skin care products. Based on scientific evidence, you need to prepare your skin in the same exact way every time in order to get the most out of your products. This means if you start with a cleanser on your forehead and work your way down the side of your face, you must continue to repeat this process. If you typically cleanse for 15 seconds, ensure you are cleansing every day for 15 seconds. Following these conditioned rules about your skincare routine order will ensure you get the most out of your skin care products.
