The skin is an incredible organ. It acts as a barrier protecting us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits touch, heat, and cold sensations.
How do the products you apply make it past the surface to work their magic?
Skin absorption is based on the thickness of the outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum. The condition of the skin has a significant impact on substance absorption. The best skin absorption areas are places where the skin is thin and hydrated.
Your skin requires two things to ensure the best absorption of your skincare:
🌙 Clean Surface
It's essential to clean your skin before applying any of your skincare products. If you apply your skincare directly over your leftover makeup or build-up of daily sweat, oil and environmental particles, you're allowing the dirt, grime and environmental toxins to be pushed deeper into your skin. This can block pores and leave bacteria in little pockets to create breakouts in days to come.
To enable your products to be absorbed completely, your skin requires Moisture, and the best way to add this is by applying a misting toner. Toners help to prepare your skin for the goodness about to come as well as adding extra hydration.
It takes just 60 - 90 seconds for your skincare products to be absorbed into your skin. After 2 - 3 minutes of absorption, your skincare enters your bloodstream and is pumped around your body.
