It's more than likely you have a bathroom cupboard full of skincare and makeup products - and knowing how to layer them correctly and use them all can be quite challenging. Many of our skincare products include Hyaluronic Acid (or you may have our stand alone serum!)
And now many of our makeup must-haves are starting to include those same skin care elements too. But how do you know if it’s safe to mix or layer them?
Is it safe to layer Hyaluronic Acid and makeup?
The answer is yes. Since hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that already exists in our skin it’s safe to use hyaluronic acid skin care and makeup together. There’s no need to worry about using too much of this ingredient; you can layer it on as a serum or in your moisturiser even if your concealer contains it too. You don't need to worry about mixing hyaluronic acid with other ingredients as it works well with them all.
How to layer your skincare ingredients
- After cleansing, apply your Hyaluronic acid serum to help hydrate and plump the skin. It's a great idea to apply this serum with damp skin or damp fingertips as once the hyaluronic acid bonds with water it will know what to do and what to bond too.
- Next, you need to follow up with a moisturiser. Moisturiser helps to seal hydration and then this will allow you to layer on your cosmetics after.
- Apply your skincare cosmetics as usual.
