The Correct Order to Apply Your Skincare Routine

Understanding your skincare concerns and how to best address them when using the right skincare products requires that you establish a good skincare regimen and order. It can be challenging to comprehend what each type of skincare product does and how/when to apply them to your skin for the greatest effects given the wide variety available. The distinction between a morning skincare routine order and a night-time skincare routine order should also be noted. We advise using Osmotics Skincare products for a proper skincare routine to achieve the greatest effects from your skincare products.

Order of Daytime Skincare Routine

Yes, you do require a separate morning and night-time skincare routine. Consider this: When you care for your face in the morning, your purpose is to protect it from the elements you'll confront after you leave the house. As a result, your morning skincare routine must protect your face from bad guys like pollutants and UV rays.


I'm sorry to break it to you, but using cleansing wipes on your face does not constitute washing it. They're better than nothing in a pinch or when travelling, but generally speaking, cleansing should involve water. The ideal cleanser for you will depend on your skin type. Avoid foamy cleansers if your face is prone to dryness; if your skin is sensitive, search for cleansers that say "gentle" or "for sensitive skin." Avoid using cleansers that have physical exfoliators like microbeads or other products with a gritty texture because they can irritate and inflame the skin. Instead, we advise using chemical exfoliators, which contain components like glycolic acid. These offer a kinder, more uniform exfoliation.


Most people avoid toners, partially because there is a persistent belief that so many toners are unpleasant and cause skin irritation. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. While they do not literally "shrink" pores, the new generation of toners can work as a delivery mechanism for antioxidants, vitamin-B derivatives, and even toning acids. Furthermore, every kind of toner is meant for a certain skin condition, therefore it's critical to apply the correct one for your skin trouble. However, it is not necessary to start using a toner if you have never done so and your skin appears healthy. After the skin's pH has become too basic from using harsh soaps, toners were developed to assist in restoring it. Toners are no longer a necessary step for many people because face cleansers are so much better balanced. However, there is no harm in staying with a toner if you enjoy using it.


Due to the large variety of ingredients they contain, serums are frequently among the most perplexing skincare products. Serums all include concentrated active substances, and skin can begin to benefit from them nearly immediately after use. Some are intended for hydration, whereas others claim potent antioxidants.

Serums are the real workhorses of a skincare routine, especially in the morning, even though they are completely optional and commonly left out. Using an antioxidant serum, such as vitamin C, to combat hyperpigmentation and aging signs while protecting from pollution and sun damage.

An Eye Cream

Creams for the eyes are soft, light, and designed to lessen pigmentation, fine wrinkles, and puffiness. A particular mix is required to maintain the hydration of the delicate, sensitive skin around the eyes. To reduce puffiness and tighten the skin around the eyes, choose an eye lotion that contains caffeine. A fragrance-free product should always be used.

Spot Treatment

Spot treatment creams go on your face today if you have acne-prone skin. Strong chemicals including niacinamide, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid are found in spot therapy creams for targeted relief. Apply them only to the problematic area (such as the black spot or an acne lesion) rather than slathering them on your entire face because it could dry out your skin.

Evening Skincare Routine

At night, we would generally suggest minimum products, you can omit the sunscreen. Before you call it a day, follow this advice for taking care of your skin.

Wash your day off

Wipes for removing makeup won't work, to reiterate. Use a cleaner and water to remove the day's grime before going to bed.

Moisturize once more

Some people alternate between a day cream that is lighter and a thicker night cream. Some people don't like that heavy feeling on their face during the day, but they're not as aware of it when they're sleeping.

The time for retinoids is at night.

The young glow of your skin is caused by an increase in cellular turnover caused by products containing retinol, vitamin A derivatives, and retinoids, which are derived from vitamin A.

But only at night can these products be used. You must wear them at night because some of them can become inactive in the sun.

Tend to blemishes

Do you intend to treat a zit overnight? The greatest products of their sort in my opinion are those that contain benzoyl peroxide. To help it dry out, dab some retinoid or benzoyl peroxide cream on it.

Face masks

Face masks help restore moisture to your skin. Consider your skin to be a grape rather than a raisin. If you soak a raisin in water for a bit, it will plump up. That is essentially what face masks are intended to achieve. It's unclear how effective they are, but they can't hurt if you want to puff up your raisin after a night out.


Sleep is an essential aspect of any successful night-time skincare program. Because your skin utilizes downtime to heal itself and manufacture new collagen, even a few hours may wreak havoc on your complexion.


Don’t feel under any obligation to include every step in the list; not everyone enjoys a 10-step regimen. Finding a skincare program that works for you and that you'll stick with is the most crucial step. Have fun exploring, whether it's with the full process or a streamlined version.
