The Ordinary Skincare from Deciem | How to Use It

 The Ordinary Skincare from Deciem | How to Use It



Hiya Darlins
I wanted to bring you this quick post as I have had a lot of questions regarding Deciem and especially The Ordinary. As you already know Deciem is one of my very favourite skincare brands and over the course of the blog it has been featured quite a few times, when The Ordinary was first launched I did a little post on my first purchases from the range, but as always with this innovative company you are often left wondering, when, and how to use the products, as with today's skincare we now understand the art of layering and with that said, I wanted to bring you this guide to using the products in The Ordinary range with confidence.

With prices averaging at under £10.00 you are giving your skin serious love without breaking the bank.  Hopefully this guide will help you when making your skincare choices, please don't be too impressed, I stole it from the Deciem website.

I have just placed a little order for a few bits as I wanted to try out the two primers in The Ordinary range also the Gylcolic Acid 7% toning solution, of course these will feature on the blog at a later date.

The Guide 

Example regimen for general signs of age: 
AM: Buffet, Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5; PM: Buffet, Advanced Retinoid 2%, 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
Example regimen for pigmentation issues:
AM: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Solution 10%; PM: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% or Advanced Retinoid 2%
Example regimen for dehydration: 
AM: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA; PM: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
Note: If using CAIS from our NIOD brand, it is important that CAIS is applied at least 30 seconds before the application of the following products from The Ordinary: Lactic Acid 5%/10% + HA 2%, Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%, Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%.
