The order in which skin care products are applied matters more than you might think. Similar to a baking recipe, you cannot just pile a bunch of ingredients in a bowl at the same time and expect good results. Each product does something different and should not be diluted with another. For instance, because a serum contains more concentrated active ingredients, it is most effective when absorbed through clean skin, rather than applied on top of an emollient moisturizer. This layering technique is similar to how I apply hair products and makeup: using a small amount of each product, one step at a time.
Here’s the morning skincare routine from my book. In next week’s tip I will share the evening routine.

3. Nourish (Yon-Ka Optimizer Serum is the perfect primer for makeup).
5. Then protect with sunblock.
