Emma’s layering suggestions

Emma, our MASC laser therapist, is right on point about layering skincare products, especially during winter when skin tends to be drier and more in need of protection and hydration. Here’s her expert advice on how to layer your skincare products for maximum effectiveness:

1. Start with Cleansing: Begin your skincare routine with a gentle cleanser to remove any oil, and impurities accumulated throughout the day or night. Choose a cleanser that is suited to your skin type and is pH balanced to not strip your skin of its natural oils, especially in the dry winter months.  MASC Laser Clinic has multiple options to choose from and our therapists will guide you on the best option for your skin.

2. Prebiotic: Follow up cleansing with a Prebiotic fluid to balance your skin’s natural flora and primes the skin to better absorb the subsequent products, while at the same time improving skin barrier function and hydration. A recommended option is the Lamelle Skin Essence range.

3. Serums for Targeted Treatment: Serums are potent formulations packed with active ingredients that can address specific skincare concerns. In winter, consider incorporating serums with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or ceramides to replenish moisture and protect the skin’s barrier. A few suggested options are: Lamelle Corrective HA+ Serum, Obagi Hydro Drops, Neostrata Skin Active Tri-lifting serum, Environ 3D Synergy Filler Creme or SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5.

4. Moisturize for Hydration: Moisturizer is a must during winter to lock in moisture and prevent water loss from the skin’s surface. Choose a richer, emollient moisturizer that provides deep hydration without feeling heavy or greasy. A few popular options are: Environ Super Moisturiser, Lamelle Serra range, Exuviance Ultra Restorative cream, Dermaheal Renewal cream or Endocare Nourishing cream.

5. Sunscreen for Protection: Even in winter, UV rays can still cause damage to the skin. Finish off your morning skincare routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent premature aging and sun damage. MASC Laser Clinic has a wide range of sunscreens, tailored to your lifestyle and product texture preference.  A few brands available are: Heliocare, Lamelle Helase and Sunskin.

6. Optional: Treatments and Eye Cream: If you have specific skincare concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, you can incorporate targeted treatments or eye creams into your routine. Apply these products after your serum but before your moisturiser to ensure maximum absorption and effectiveness.

7. Night-time Repair: In the evening, consider adding a few additional steps to your skincare routine to promote overnight repair and rejuvenation. This may include using a nourishing mask, treatment serum or a retinol-based product to help boost collagen production and improve skin texture while you sleep. Available options are: Lamelle Serra Lipid Recovery Mask, AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum, Lamelle RFM Serum, Neostrata Potent Retinol Complex, Endocare Comfort cream, Obagi 360 Retinol 0.5, or Environ Revival Mask.

By layering your skincare products in the correct order and choosing formulations tailored to your skin’s needs, you can ensure maximum effectiveness and protection against the harsh winter elements. Emma’s tips will help you achieve a healthy, glowing complexion all season long!
