Skincare experts are raving about it, but what does it actually mean to layer your skincare? There are no hard rules about the application but there is an art to layering your skincare and doing it correctly will help you get optimal results. If you aren’t layering your skincare products yet, let this be a practice you adapt to your skincare regime starting now.
Like dressing yourself in the cooler months where you layer your shirts with jumpers, then jumpers with coats- we should be layering our serums and moisturisers to protect our skin. Certain areas of your face need certain ingredients while other areas don’t, layering allows you to spot treat those areas while still offering the necessary amount of hydration to the whole face.
You should always start with the lightest product and work your way through to the heaviest one. Lighter serums will find it tough to absorb into the skin if it’s applied on top of a thick moisturiser.
Tip: You should allow each product to absorb into the skin before the next application – work in circular motions over your face, neck and décolletage.
Serums deliver active ingredients into the skin - post cleanse, apply your selected serums. If you’re left wondering what products you should be layering we recommend you head into your nearest Ella Baché salon for a skincare diagnosis, your Beauty Therapist will select the right serum for your skin condition.
If you’re looking to refresh your regime, here are a few suggestions to consider:
Cleanser: The most vital part in the regime, a splash of water simply will not do. Cleansing properly will allow you to remove make-up, dirt and grime as well as pore clogging bacteria from your pillow.
We love Ella Baché Lait Enrichi Requin – a moisture rich cleansing milk with olive extract
Spot Treatment: You will know if you need it, apply directly onto the blemish with clean fingers.
We love Crème Intex no. 2 – a fast acting response cream for skin prone to breakouts.
Serum: Whether it’s for anti-aging, brightening or skin clearing this is a must have in the skincare regime. Apply in circular motions on your face, neck and décolletage.
We love Ella Baché Hydra Hyaluronic Cellular Serum – an ultra hydrating serum that protects and plumps fine lines.
Eye Cream: Use sparingly under the eyes to immediately brighten and plump fine lines.
We love Ella Baché Eternal Restructuring Eye Cream - an ultra hydrating eye cream packed with collagen boosters and antioxidants.
Moisturiser: Lock in all that goodness with your daily moisturiser, apply in circular motions on your face, neck and décolletage.

Remember as each season changes so does your skin, head into your nearest Ella Baché or David Jones store and receive a skin diagnosis. This will ensure you keep on top of your skins needs, keeping it glowing all year round!
