Daytime and Nighttime Differences
Your next step, after a moisturizer, is your retinoid treatment, heavier cream, facial oil or sunscreen.
It's important to use sunscreen, or at the very least, a product with SPF, every morning. Yes, even in the winter! Protecting your skin from the sun's rays will benefit your skin in the long run and keep your skin from aging as quickly.
If you're using a retinoid treatment, now is the time to use it as well.
Facial oil is a great last step, especially for your night routine. Oils can easily penetrate through moisturizers, but most won't be able to get through oil, so use it as the last step. And since oils can make your face appear greasy or shiny, using it at night allows it to do its magic while you sleep!
