6 Easy Steps on How to Layer Skin Care

The general rule of thumb in applying skincare is to apply from thinnest to thickest in texture.

Since I’m an Avon representative, I’ve decided to use some of the top Avon products as an example of how to layer skin care products.

1. Cleanse Your Face

Cleansing your face in the morning is the first step to mastering how to layer skin care.

This essential step removes debris and oil from your skin, creating a fresh canvas for the rest of your products. A clean face ensures that your serums, moisturizers, and treatments can penetrate more effectively, giving you the maximum benefits from each one.

Starting your skincare routine by using a good gentle cleanser sets the stage for a radiant, healthy complexion.

My favorite cleanser is the Rice Water Bright Cleanser. This foaming cleanser produces a whipped cream-like texture that effectively removes makeup residue while moisturizing.

2. Apply Toner

After cleansing, the next step in layering your skincare products is applying toner.

Toner helps to balance your skin’s pH levels, tighten pores, and prepare your skin to absorb the following treatments more effectively.

Choose a toner suited to your skin type—whether it’s hydrating for dry skin, calming for sensitive skin, or clarifying for oily skin.

Applying toner with a cotton pad or gently patting it on your skin with your hands can significantly improve the overall effectiveness of your skincare routine.

This will ensure that your complexion stays refreshed and ready for the next steps.

I highly recommend the Farm Rx Pineapple Plus Instant Glow Toner for its ability to visibly minimize pores and smooth skin while being gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Farm Rx Pineapple Plus Instant Glow Toner

Experience the revitalizing power of the Farm Rx Pineapple Plus Instant Glow Toner. This 5 fl. oz. toner is enriched with pineapple extract and a unique five fruits complex, offering a potent blend of antioxidants and vitamins for visibly glowing skin.


  • Helps visibly minimize pores
  • Helps smooth skin
  • Suitable for sensitive skin

Key Ingredients:

  • Pineapple Extract: Contains natural alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) to help remove dead skin cells, visibly smoothing and brightening the skin.
  • Five Fruits Complex: A blend of watermelon, papaya, fermented pomegranate, tomato, and lemon extracts, providing powerful antioxidants and essential nutrients for healthy, glowing skin.

3. Facial Serum

The third step in layering skin care products is applying a facial serum.

Serums are concentrated formulas packed with active ingredients designed to target specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, dark spots, or dehydration.

After toning, your skin is primed to absorb these powerful treatments effectively.

Remember to apply your serums from thinnest to thickest for optimal absorption.

Depending on your needs, you might choose a serum with ingredients like hyaluronic acid for hydration, vitamin C for brightening, or retinol for anti-aging.

Apply a few drops of serum to your face and gently pat it into your skin. This will allow the potent ingredients to work their magic and enhance your overall skincare routine.

Anew Platinum Age-Delay Serum

As a woman over 60, I highly recommend using Anew Platinum Age-Delay Serum for its remarkable benefits in rejuvenating and lifting the skin.

With its innovative antioxidant technology, this serum is a powerhouse of niacinamide (vitamin B3), panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), and collagen-stimulating peptides.

Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum

I also use the Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum daily to brighten my skin. This serum works great if you’re struggling with dark spots and looking for a solution.

This little bottle is packed with 10% pure vitamin C, which is known for its amazing skin-brightening properties. After cleansing and applying toner, smooth it over your skin and let it work magic!

4. Eye Cream

The next step in your skincare routine is applying eye cream, a crucial step often overlooked.

The skin around your eyes is delicate and prone to showing signs of aging and fatigue, such as fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles.

Eye creams specifically address these concerns with targeted ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, and caffeine.

Applying eye cream ensures that this sensitive area gets the extra care it needs, helping to keep it hydrated, smooth, and youthful.

Gently pat a small amount around your eyes using your ring finger to avoid tugging, and you’ll notice a brighter, more refreshed look over time.

A couple of my favorite Avon eye creams are the Anew Ultimate Eye System and the Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Eye Cream. If you’re looking to reduce under-eye bags, reduce crow’s feet, and diminish multiple eye area concerns, check out these two excellent eye care choices.

5. Moisturize

Moisturizers are vital in your skincare routine, providing hydration and sealing in all the previous treatment layers.

They help to maintain your skin’s moisture barrier, keeping it soft, supple, and resilient.

When choosing a moisturizer, consider your skin type—lightweight gels for oily skin, rich creams for dry skin, or something in between for combination skin.

Avon Sun Care Products

Additionally, using a moisturizer with SPF during the day is essential. SPF protects your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing premature aging, sunburn, and even skin cancer.

Applying a moisturizer with SPF as an additional step in your morning routine ensures your skin stays hydrated and protected from daily sun exposure.

If your moisturizer does not contain sunscreen, I suggest you add a light layer of one of these SPF-rated sun care products after you apply your moisturizer. Of course, you could also use these products alone.

6. Facial Oil

The final step in your skincare routine is applying facial oil, which helps to lock in all the moisture and benefits from the previous layers.

Facial oils are rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, providing an extra layer of nourishment and protection for your skin.

This step is particularly beneficial for those with dry or mature skin, as it helps to restore the skin’s natural lipid barrier, leaving it soft and radiant.

Apply a few drops of your chosen facial oil and gently press it into your skin, allowing it to absorb fully.

After your moisturizer in the evening, I recommend applying a few drops of the Green Goddess Facial Oil, allowing it to absorb fully.

This last step ensures your skin stays hydrated, glowing, and protected throughout the night.

Summary of How to Layer Skin Care Products

Incorporating the right steps and products into your skincare routine can make a world of difference in achieving healthy, radiant skin.

Following the proper order ensures that each product works effectively and provides maximum benefits. Here are the key steps to follow:

  • Cleanse: Start with a gentle cleanser to remove debris and oil.
  • Tone: Apply toner to balance your skin’s pH and prepare it for the next steps.
  • Serum: Use a targeted serum to address specific skin concerns.
  • Eye Cream: Gently apply eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes.
  • Moisturize: Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type and includes SPF for daytime protection.
  • Facial Oil: Finish with facial oil to lock in moisture and provide additional nourishment.

Remember to choose products that suit your skin type and address your specific concerns.

Consistency is key, so stick to your routine, and you’ll soon see the results of your efforts. With these simple steps, you can enjoy a glowing, youthful complexion every day.
