Invest in Multi-Taskers

As a rule, it's fine to layer your skincare, but there are a few rules to play by. Don't pair up products that contain the same active ingredient. So, don't use a retinol-based serum as well as a retinol-based night cream, as doubling up on this anti-ager will cause irritation. Also, if you start to notice any piling (where the lotion balls up), it means these formulas aren't compatible. Confused? Reach for multi-taskers instead. They reduce the amount of product going onto your skin, but don't compromise any precious steps. We love Frances Prescott, Tri-Balm, which cleanses, exfoliates and moisturises at the same time.
