What to apply after applying serum?

What to apply after applying serum? After you’ve waited 5 minutes for the serum to absorb, apply your moisturizer to your face and neck. The moisturizer is the final step and finishing touch that helps seal in your serum and lock in the nutrients. It also gives you an extra layer of moisture to protect and hydrate your skin for a supple, dewy glow.

Do I use moisturizer after serum? Since serums contain the active ingredients that you want to penetrate as deeply as possible into your skin, you should always apply a serum directly to your skin after cleansing or toning and before your moisturizer and sunscreen. Don’t put your serum on after you moisturize.

What should we apply before and after serum? The general rule of thumb for applying skincare is thinnest consistency to thickest. In terms of when to apply your serum in your skincare routine, it should be applied after cleansing and before moisturizing. “You want the serum to penetrate your skin as deeply and effectively as possible,” Davis notes.

Can I use only serum on my face? If your skin’s happy with serum alone, you can skip moisturizer. But only a lucky few with normal and super oily skin can get away with this, in my experience. So, don’t be too disappointed if your skin needs both.
