For your skincare products to be most effective, you will need to apply them in the correct order. No matter your skin concerns, you’ll want to start with a clean and toned base. With any skin care product, apply in order of consistency. A good rule of thumb is to apply in order of texture, from thinnest to thickest, since thin products won’t be able to penetrate thicker ones.
How to Layer Your Skin Care Products
Step 1 - Cleanse your skin
Wash twice a day, morning and night, to avoid clogged pores, dullness and acne. The right formula cleanses your skin without stripping essential, healthy oils. HYSSES Facial Wash range to amp up your facial cleansing routine. They are infused with different essential oils to serve different skin types. They are gentle on the skin and do a miraculous job of ridding the face of grime and dirt. The cleanser comes in 3 different scents and regardless of what skin type you are, there will be one that will work wonders for you.
If you wear makeup, you may need to cleanse twice at night. First, remove your makeup with cleansing oil. Try double cleansing, which involves using HYSSES Facial Cleansing Oil. Plant-based ingredients thoroughly melt layers of sunscreen, heavy makeup and excess sebum while Vitamin E keeps skin soft, supple and smooth. Only wore sunscreen or light makeup? Use HYSSES Micellar Cleansing Water to remove the dirt. Tiny oil-cleansing molecules called “micelles” bond together to attract and pull away impurities from the skin without the use of harsh chemicals. What’s left is fresh, bouncy and moist skin that glows with confidence all day. Then wash your face again with your regular cleanser.
Exfoliating can soften your skin and make your skin feel beautiful, youthful, and glowing like a fresh layer of skin cells emerges as dead skin cells are washed away. Regular exfoliation of your skin can do splendours for your complexion. It helps to produce smooth, unclogged skin that can exude an overall glow. Your skin will be prepped for moisturiser, oil, or serum after this. HYSSES Facial Scrub caters for different skin types and needs.
Step 2 - Toning
Toners should be done after cleansing and before putting on anything else. They are essentially meant for priming your face for the other ingredients to be better absorbed later on. Our Micellar Cleansing Water is a revolutionary one-step, no-rinse solution to remove makeup, cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin in all under a minute. Particularly ideal for those on the go or travellers, who needed that all-in-one convenience. Applying toner with clean hands is the most efficient. Just pour a few drops on your palm, then gently swipe them onto your face. Alternatively, you can use a cotton pad to apply.
Step 3 - Serum
Serums are powerful skin allies. They are super-concentrated, nutrient-dense treatments that address specific concerns. HYSSES Xetract face serum is a curated set of powerful supplements, each containing an essential building block towards healthier, more youthful skin. With key active ingredients that rank among the first few on a deliberately-short ingredient list, less product is required per application. The high concentration also allows Xetract face serums to be added as an effective ingredient to give your other products a boost. If you have multiple concerns, you might want to use multiple formulas.
If you have a blemish, first look for an anti-inflammatory product to remove it, then turn to a spot-drying treatment to clear up the rest.
Step 4 - Moisturising
Yes, everyone needs a moisturiser, even if you have oily skin. An inadequacy of moisture can cause your skin to create more oil to compensate for it, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. A moisturiser not only infuses your skin with hydration, but it also helps trap in all the products underneath it to make the ingredients even more effective. The texture of your moisturiser will differ depending on your skin type. Using a face cream is important because it keeps moisture and elasticity in your skin. This will help with wrinkles reduction and age spot prevention. HYSSES Facial Cream enhances the functioning of the stratum corneum, which is made up of fat, oil, and skin cells that lock moisture in the skin. Applying a moisturiser to your face can increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum and prevent skin from drying out. Maintaining a high water content in the skin is key for healing and maintaining healthy skin.
Step 5 - Sunscreen
It may be the last step, but sunscreen is, hands down, the most crucial skin-care product. Daily and consistent sunscreen use helps to protect your skin from UV rays and can prevent skin cancer and signs of aging. HYSSES Sunscreen protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays, prevents premature aging, and wrinkles, and reduces skin irritation due to sun exposure, the non-greasy formula leaves behind a matt effect on the skin. Our 2-in-1 Moisturising Sunscreen combines the therapeutic wellness of essential oils, herbal ingredients and mineral sunscreen blockers for hydration and protection for daily use. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply at least every two hours.
Step 6: Facial Mask (Once to thrice a week)
Face masks are the perfect home-based skin care treatment to address your skin care concern. Choosing the right face mask not only removes impurities but also hydrates and removes excess sebum hence beautifying and soothing your skin. It refines pores and restores more youthful skin. Put together with a good skin care regime of cleansing, moisturising, exfoliating and sunscreen protection, your skin's texture and appearance will definitely improve with the glow. You can use HYSSES Bio-Cellulose Mask for a simple, and fuss-free routine. It is made with fermented coconut bio-cellulose fibers which are all-natural, and environmentally friendly. It is perfect for delivering moisture and serums more efficiently than normal paper or cotton sheet masks.
You can also try out Charcoal Volcanic Mask Tea Tree Hinoki for good facial detoxification. Powered with volcanic ashes that have magnetic-alike absorption capability to pull out all that unwanted gunk underneath your clogged pores to reveal smooth, clean skin. This super pore-refining volcanic mask contains antibacterial-rich minerals, together with the anti-inflammatory properties of Tea Tree and Hinoki help soothe skin after the purification process for enlarged pores. 100% botanical volcanic mask is designed to be highly effective to reduce excess facial sebum and shine.
For mature skin, our Pink Clay Mask Frankincense Patchouli is not only known for being gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, but pink clay can also help to prolong your youth by improving your skin elasticity and promoting skin cell renewal. Give your skin a well-deserved treat with the super hydrating Soothing Mask Rose Sandalwood gel mask. With the calming and anti-inflammatory properties of Sandalwood and Rose Essential oils, the mask hydrates, and tones to restore radiance and suppleness to all skin types. Real rose petals added into the formulation melts into the skin.
