TIP #1

ABC OF SKIN LAYERING, MADARA COSMETICS

THE RIGHT ORDER

Your products should be applied from thinnest to thickest. Start with the thinnest formulas so they can absorb easily in the deepest layers of the skin, then top it off with thicker products that do not penetrate very deeply.

TIP #2

TAKE A PAUSE

Give each product a moment to dry so the power ingredients can seal on the skin properly. That doesn`t mean that you have to spend hours every morning just prepping your skin – choose a morning routine that blends in smoothly. For example, slather on the serum and have a coffee, then apply a moisturizer and brush your teeth before you continue.
