Something as simple as a skincare regime can get slightly confusing with the various types of products available nowadays, here at The Beauty Edit we have put together a simple step-by-step guide to layering your products in order to get the most out of your skincare and optimise performance:
Step 1: Cleanser
Cleansing is an essential first step both morning and night (don't even ask, you need to cleanse in the morning!) Cleansing in the morning will remove any oils that may of built up, also freshen up your skin ready for your skincare and makeup application, it also gets you ready for your day ahead. At night we suggest double cleansing first cleanse to remove makeup, sunscreen, impurities and the second cleanse to treat the skin, here at TBE we love cleansing with a face flannel as you also get a physical exfoliation at the same time.
Try one of these cleansers
Step 2: Toner/Mist
A quick swipe of toner or a spritz of a mist to moisten skin ready for your following products. If you use Sodashi's Concentrate this is where you would perform this step then toner/mist.
Try one of these toners/mists.
Step 3: Eye Serum or Cream.
Lightest texture first, therefore if you use both an eye serum and cream use the serum first then the cream.
Try one of these eye products.
Step 4: Serum
Make sure you allow your serum to absorb as you want the active ingredients to penetrate before putting on your moisturiser.
Try one of these serums/oils
Step 5: Moisturiser
Lock in all your products with your favourite moisturiser, its an important step as it seals all your products in making them more effective.
Step 6: SPF
If you use a SPF that's the last step, make sure you use enough to cover your entire face and neck and down forget your ears!
Try this SPF
It's important that you allow each product to absorb before you put on the next and if your worried about time here is a tip, flow your skincare regime in with the rest of your morning routine, so while products are absorbing get dressed, do your hair....we can all multi-task people.
A favourite secret tip of ours after applying your moisturiser, spray a mist like the Sodashi Rejuvenating Mist over your face and massage in, it further penetrates your products and keeps your face hydrated.

Masks, whether it's to deep clean your skin, brighten, plump and moisturise, masking weekly is a complete game changer for your skin, depending on your skin type we suggest a deep clean/clarifying mask or a exfoliating mask once or twice a week and a brightening or moisturising mask once a week.
