If you have a cluttered bathroom counter full of skin care products, and you haven’t the slightest clue on how to use them, then you should follow my simple rule of thumb. The best way to remember the order to apply your skin care regimen is to use the thinnest to the thickest in consistency.

You also need to remember to wear it in the off season too, because the sun still shines in winter even though its ray aren’t quite as strong. Here are a few products you should start using ASAP!
