Can I Use More Than One Serum Each Night?

Can I Use More Than One Serum Each Night?

Multiple skin concerns can require multiple products to target and treat, but how many serums can you use at once? Fortunately, there’s some good news. In most cases, you don’t have to leave anything out of your proposed routine to ensure you can reap the benefits of the rest. Layering serums with your other skin care products can help you maximize their potential, but the key is in your technique.

Layering in Your Skin Care Routine 

Before you figure out in what order you should apply serums, you should understand how to layer products in your overall skin care routine. You’ll need to start with cleansed and exfoliated skin to allow each item to penetrate and work its magic, then follow up with several other essentials: 

  • Serums
  • Moisturizer
  • Face oil
  • Sunscreen

It’s best to allow a minute or two to pass between each layer’s application, as you’ll let it sufficiently dry and prevent product pilling. 

How To Layer Serums

Now that you know the general layering technique, it’s also crucial to apply your serums in the right order. Typically, your lightweight and lighter textured serums should go on first. Just as you let each layer dry before you apply the next, you’ll need to do the same thing with individual organic skincare serums. Don’t forget to save your heaviest textured formulas for last.

A smart approach also takes into consideration the number of serums you apply. Most experts suggest stopping at three to gain optimal results from all your products. If you find yourself eyeing more than three formulas, consider swapping a few of them for a single multitasking serum.

Some have referred to skin care layeringasanart form. They’re not wrong, but remembering some simple recommendations help demystify the process. Remember to choose your offerings from a natural skincare line sold by a trustworthy retailer for best results.
