It is so exciting to get stuck into your newly purchased Ultraceuticals skincare routine! It can however, be quite frustrating when you get stuck at the first step – knowing which order your products go onto the skin? The skin is such a complex organ and so its not uncommon these days that your skincare routine will include applying several different products before you even get to your moisturiser.
Do not worry, we are here to decipher exactly what goes where. It can take a little practice to get it right, but if you follow these steps below it will be a cinch in no time.
Eye Make Up Remover, Ultra Clear Foaming Cleanser, Gel Balancing Cleanser, Hydrating Milk Cleanser, Brightening Cleanser and Micellar B2
It goes without saying, cleansing sit at number one. Morning and night, this is the first step before applying any other products. Remember to do a double cleanse if you are removing heavy make-up – working into the skin for a good 30 seconds and remove well with warm water and a gentle face washer or towel.
Balancing Skin Mist
Think of your skin as a sponge, a dry sponge does not absorb anything really. This is the same as our skin and is why we incorporate this Skin Mist into our routine before we apply any products – to allow the skin to absorb the nutrients from other subsequent products. Plus, it just feels amazingly refreshing – a great skin pick me up!
Moisturising Eye Cream, Firming Eye Cream or Perfecting Eye Cream
Possibly one of the most forgotten of the skincare steps, but oh so important! Its the area of face, the first sighs of ageing occur so we must protect and nourish it to avoid those pesky crow’s feet. Your therapist will let you know which eye cream is best for and when to apply, AM or PM.

Even Skintone, Serum, Brightening Serum, Clearing Lotion or Pore Refiner Serum
