The Protocol: Guiding You Through Product Order

The Protocol: Guiding You Through Product Order

Ah, skincare. We've advanced this far in understanding healthier habits and the right tools to get us there. It's crucial for wellness, reflecting our outer and inner health. But shouldn’t it be straightforward? It can be complex for those not steeped in its nuances. Let's explore essential skincare tools, their functions, and when to use them. Our skin is unique, requiring a tailored approach for each individual's needs. We'll navigate through various products, down to each purpose and how to use them effectively.

Does the order matter when using skincare products?

The simple answer is, yes.

a. Absorption is crucial in determining the sequence of product application. Oil-based or heavier creams should be applied after lighter, quickly absorbed serums, ensuring each product delivers its maximum benefit.

b. Wash-off Before Leave-on: Starting with cleansers or masks primes the skin, allowing subsequent leave-on treatments to penetrate more effectively.

c. Targeted Treatment Application: Apply targeted treatments like spot correctors before general moisturizers to ensure direct contact with skin for optimal effectiveness. 

Below, we'll look at the correct protocol using GOA’s product line as examples in any daily regimen following a twice-per-day regimen. Noting: Once-daily use prioritizes gentleness, maintenance, and skin balance, whilst twice-daily maximizes cleansing and active ingredient benefits for those with specific concerns like wrinkles, acne, etc.

Cool tools to deliver the goods faster and more effectively 

1. Red Light Devices: Red light therapy (RLT) is supported by research for its potential to stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, and improve overall skin health.

2. Microneedling: It has been demonstrated to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and uneven texture by promoting collagen and elastin production.
