Serum, toner, cleanser, day cream, instant products... There are so many products and steps you can incorporate into your skincare routine, but in which order should they be used? Do you apply a toner first, or should you start with the cleanser? Does the serum come before or after your day cream? Read all our tips & tricks below to learn how to get the best results with our products.

Always remember to go from a thin texture to a thick texture

It may not seem so important, but the correct order of application is essential for the products' effectiveness. There is a general rule when it comes to applying skincare products: start with the thinnest texture and then build up to the thickest texture. For example, a serum is thinner than a day cream. That’s why you should always apply your serum before your day cream.

The right order for your morning routine

A proper morning skincare routine is essential for adequate protection, hydration, and a beautiful glow throughout the day. Follow these four steps for the best results.

Step 1: Cleanse your face with micellar water

The first product you need in the morning is Remescar Micellar Water 3-in-1. Micellar water removes any night cream residue and other impurities, enabling you to start the day with clean, washed skin. It also prevents your pores from becoming clogged by residual dirt.

Step 2: Intense prep with serum

The second step is to apply a serum to prep the skin. For example, choose Vitamin C Serum to reduce dark spots or Hyaluronic Acid Serum for intense skin hydration. These care products have a high concentration of specific ingredients and should be used after cleansing the skin, so that they can penetrate deep into the skin.

Step 3: Hydrate and protect the skin with a day cream

After the skin has been properly prepared with a serum, you can apply Remescar Day Cream. This rich cream has both a moisturising and a protective effect. Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to many different external factors that may be harmful. An SPF day cream protects the skin against the negative effects of sun rays, exhaust gases and dirt particles.

And to care for the delicate skin around the eyes, use a specific eye contour cream. This eye cream gives your eye contour extra care and hydration. The result? Reduces wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes in the long term.

Once you have completed your regular skincare routine, your skin is ready to go. If you want to fix a specific problem immediately, use one of our instant products to immediately reduce wrinkles and eye bags, lift sagging eyelids, or visibly minimise wide pores. Important to know: Proper preparation enhances the effect of these instant products.

Follow these steps in your evening routine

The day is over and you are ready to go to sleep. It's also important to use your skincare products in the right order in the evening for an optimal result during the night.

Step 1: Rinse off the day with Micellar Water 3-in-1

Your skin is exposed to many external factors throughout the day. If you don't remove impurities or make-up properly with micellar water, your pores will become clogged or irritated. Thorough cleansing keeps your skin clean so that it is more receptive to the following products.

Remember that washing your face often with water may feel refreshing, but doesn't cleanse your skin. Tap water is not the same as micellar water.

Step 2: Use a toner to restore the balance of your skin

After cleansing the skin, it is important to rebalance it. A balanced skin allows a serum or cream to be properly absorbed by the skin. The toner restores the skin's pH level to support its natural protective layer and prepares the skin for the next step.

Step 3: A serum for an intense boost

In the evening, it is also important to apply a serum that meets your skin’s needs. Our top picks are Retinol Anti-Ageing Serum to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and Bakuchiol Serum as an alternative for sensitive skin.


Step 4: Night cream to repair your skin

Your skin goes into recovery mode at night. A night cream strengthens the natural skin barrier and encourages cell renewal. Use the repair night cream to restore your skin and give it some extra hydration while you sleep, so you can wake up with radiant skin.

And don't forget your eye contour. Remescar Eye Night Repair nourishes, hydrates and firms the skin around your eyes. The cream reduces eye bags, dark circles and crow’s feet, and lifts sagging eyelids.
