The 2-Second Trick Every Woman Over 40 Should Try For Younger-Looking Skin

The skincare products you use will ultimately help you obtain radiant, younger-looking skin. Most people think that they’ll only see results if they use fancy, high-end crèmes and serums, but dermatologists say that the secret to a successful anti-aging skincare routine requires more than that. Regardless of the products you use, whether they be from the drugstore or an upscale boutique, you’ll only see wrinkle-free skin if you’re applying your products correctly. In fact, Sarah Lee and Christine Chang, founders of Glow Recipe, say that most people layer their products in the wrong way, which explains why they don’t see the results that are promised on the packaging.

“We consider treatment steps to be anything between toning and moisturizing. Layering your serums and essences from thinnest to thickest helps the skin to absorb each layer most efficiently,” they told Byrdie.

See? The trick to younger-looking skin just requires a tiny tweak to your skincare routine! Lee and Chang suggest using a lightweight serum first and then following up with your moisturizer to maximize the results and get the most out of their formulas.
