Ready, set, start.

If you’re delving into skin care for the first time, a dizzying 10-step routine may be overwhelming or even discouraging. Taking good care of your skin need not feel like a chore! So, where to actually start? A quick tip is to layer the products starting from the lightest to the thickest consistency. When layered in succession, this prepares skin for better absorption which yields maximum results. Now, let’s break it down to the basics!
