Are You Applying Your Skincare Products Correctly?

Even if you own the best skincare products on the market, applying them incorrectly (out of order) can negate their benefits. We tapped Kimberly Cole, a top aesthetician from Venice-based Spa Sophia, for her advice, and she gave us this genius, catchall tip: “Starting with a water-based formula, apply your products in order of increasing thickness, ending with a heavy cream.” Simple and straightforward, just the way we like it.Here, are a few of her favorite products, in order of how to apply them.


Step 1: Cleanse

Step 2: Hydrate

Step 3: Hyaluronic Layer

Step 4: Seal With Oil
