Skincare Hacks – How To Get The Most Out Of Your Products

Here in the U.K, the skincare industry has reached a value of £2.2 billion, showing just how many of us are embracing looking after our skin. However, are you actually getting the best out of your products? Find out how you can maximise the use of your skincare products, so you can boss your routine every single day!

Easy on the eye cream!

It’s very common for people to overuse when it comes to eye cream. In reality, all you need is a pea-sized amount for both eyes. When you apply too much eye cream, it can actually backfire on you, as the excess product can come into contact with your eyes, causing unpleasant effects like swelling and irritation. As a result, you might find your eyes are particularly puffy in the mornings, the consequences of which include loss of elasticity overtime, as your skin is being stretched (and really doesn’t want to be)!

The moral of the story is?

Use eye cream sparingly and correctly.


Skinora’s eye cream top pick:

Gallinée Probiotic Eye Contour Cream

  • The perfect marriage of prebiotics, probiotics and algae extract works to hydrate and fend off dark circles and fine lines.
  • Helps you recover a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Formulated for even the most sensitive and reactive skin types.


Stay away from cotton balls for product application

Not only do cotton balls waste too much of your product (as they’re so absorbent), once wet, they tend to fall to bits, making product application a nightmare. If you suffer with sensitive skin, you’ll also find that cotton balls can feel scratchy. The good news is, you don’t have to put up with them!

Instead, go for a toning cloth, which is 50% thinner than cotton-based products and gentle on the skin. You’ll also save money, as you won’t be wasting as much of your product!

The moral of the story is?

Ditch the cotton balls in favour of a less absorbent application product.

Use a facial oil

Facial oils date way back to the times of the Ancient Egyptians, who used them to keep thei skin looking healthy and glowing. Today, they’re making a huge comeback and should definitely be a pillar in your skincare routine. Facial oils containing antioxidants reduce your wrinkles and prevent further ageing. Those containins jojoba oil (such as Gallinée’s Gallinée Prebiotic Face Oil), can actually reduce oil production, helping to shrink enlarged pores.

If you’re going away on holiday soon, facial oils are secret weapon that protect your skin from dry environments, such as in the cabin on an areophane – they’re a must for long journeys when you might be in a confined space for a little while.

The moral of the story is?

Make sure you include a facial oil in your skincare routine and choose the correct face oil for your skin type.


Gallinée Prebiotic Face Oil

  • Innovative blend of active oils, prebiotics and postbiotic lipids that repair and strengthen skin.
  • Contains jojoba oil which repairs and nourishes skin.
  • Contains vitamin E which works to shield your skin from external damage.
  • Supports your all-important microbiome, the protective layer made up of ‘good bacteria’, which ensure the overall balance and health of the skin.


Order, Order!

Make sure you’re applying your products in the correct order, otherwise it’s likely that you won’t be getting the best out of what they can do for your skin.

Here’s how you should be applying your products:

  • Cleanser
  • Toner
  • Serums
  • Eye cream
  • Moisturiser
  • Face oil
  • Sunscreen

The moral of the story is?

New to skincare products? Make yourself a little list to pin onto your mirror for the mornings, so that you can make sure you’re always applying products in the right order.
