the art of layering.

how to maximise your skincare routine

Layering skincare products can seem complicated, but it’s a game-changer for achieving radiant, healthy skin. At Organic Ministry, we’ve mastered the art of layering to help you get the most out of your skincare routine. Here’s how to do it right.

Step-by-Step Guide to Layering

Cleanse First:
 Start with a clean canvas. Use our Confused Gel Cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup, preparing your skin to absorb the following products effectively.

Tone Your Skin:
Apply our Toning Mist to balance your skin’s pH and provide a refreshing boost of hydration. This step helps prep your skin for better absorption of serums and moisturisers.

Apply Serums:
Serums are your power players. Start with the thinnest consistency and work your way up. Apply our Vitamin C Serum to replenish, Hyaluronic Serum for deep hydration, followed by the Collagen Serum to boost elasticity and firmness.

Peptide Power:
Incorporate our Peptide Cream into your routine to target fine lines and promote collagen production. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that help to strengthen your skin’s structure, enhancing its firmness and resilience. As this is a 'heavier' product to a serum, this is applied after your serums.

Use Eye Cream:
The delicate skin around your eyes needs special care. Gently pat on our Essentials Intensive Eye Cream to hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.

Lock in all the goodness with a moisturiser. Our Thirsty Moisturiser is perfect for daytime use, providing lightweight hydration. 

For night-time, opt for our Eternal Renewal Cream to nourish and repair your skin while you sleep.

Protect with SPF:
During the day, finish your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage. This crucial step helps prevent premature ageing and skin cancer.

Night-time Boost:
At night, you can add an extra layer of nourishment with our Confused Nourishing Oil, which supports your skin’s natural repair process. Any oils should be the applied as the final step in your routine, this serves to seal in the moisture and nutrients, but if applied before your other steps, the oil can act as a barrier and not allow other ingredients to penetrate your skin.

    Tips for Effective Layering

    Start Light:
    Always apply products from the thinnest to the thickest consistency. This ensures each product is properly absorbed without blocking the next.

    Give It Time:
    Allow each layer to absorb for a minute or two before applying the next one. This helps prevent pilling and ensures maximum effectiveness.

    Listen to Your Skin:
    Adjust your routine based on your skin’s needs. If your skin feels dry, add an extra layer of hydration. If it feels oily, simplify your routine.

      Maximise Your Results

      Layering is all about maximising the benefits of each product.
