It is universal knowledge in the skincare world that having a good skincare routine, for both morning and night, is essential to maintain clear and healthy skin. What is harder to understand is how much of your products you should apply. This quick guide will give you a few easy rules of thumb to live by when it comes to your skincare regimen.

1. Normally, any more than a dime-size of any of your skincare products is excessive (and products can be pricey, so do not waste your money by using too much). Unnecessary amounts of product will not absorb into your skin and will just lay on the surface, attracting dirt to it. This can lead to undesirable clogged and enlarged pores, breakouts, and skin irritation.

2. Give your products time to absorb into your skin. Layering your products too quickly and before they sink in properly can also lead to clogged and enlarged pores and breakouts. When going through your skincare routine, allow at least 2-3 minutes between products to make sure they all get absorbed. If you do that, the products can work their magic and target what you need them to.

3. Adjust the amount of product you use according to seasonal and climate changes. If it is summer, your skincare routine in Toronto should be lightweight. You should stick to the dime-size rule. In the winter, especially if your skin feels like it is dry, apply a little bit more to the dry areas, and reapply as needed.

4. Your skincare products should already target your skin type. However, feel free to adjust the amount of product you use according to the type of skin you have. Pay attention to the areas you feel may need a little bit more product (cheeks or forehead) and which areas may need less (your T-zone).
