Ever wonder if there’s a science to the order in which you apply your skincare products by day? Well, wonder no more. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 Go!

1. First, after cleansing and exfoliating, apply your Vitamin C based product to brighten and help screen the sun a bit. Dr. Oz calls Vitamin C the #1 secret to dropping a decade. Read more here!

Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin’s vitamin C levels to help to combat and even reverse time’s effect on your face. 

Jan Marini and Obagi both make Vitamin C products that we love!


2. Once it has fully soaked in, then apply your sunscreen. We like a physical sunscreen as opposed to a chemical one. Elta MD’s UV Physical is a spa favorite!


3. Finally, it’s time for your tinted moisturizer or foundation! (*some sunscreen products like the Elta MD pictured above offer a slight tint that might be just enough coverage/color for some. Now, wouldn’t that be easy!)

See you at the spa,
