4 Skin Care Products That Work Well Together 4 Skin Care Products That Work Well Together 4 Skin Care Products That Work Well Together

If you have a bunch of beauty products in your skin care collection but none of them work well together, what’s the point? Part of developing a skin care routine is choosing products that can help complement one another. That may sound like a challenge—and it certainly can be. Knowing what works tends to be a process of trial and error, but thankfully we’ve done the leg work for you. Here are four skin care product pairs to give a whirl.

Product Pairing #1: Cleanser and Moisturizer

Two of the biggest basics in skin care are cleansers and moisturizers. After cleansing, you should always apply a hydrating cream or lotion to help lock in moisture (yes, oily skin types, even you). When selecting which cleanser and moisturizer to use, take your skin type into account. Start your skin care regimen off right by using a micellar water to wipe away impurities, dirt, oil, and makeup. Then, follow with a water-based moisturizer that suits your skin type.

If you have oily skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin with the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin.

If you have dry skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin with the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin.

If you have extra dry skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin with the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin.

If you wear waterproof makeup…use the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types with your choice of moisturizers from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius line.

Product Pairing #2: Facial Oil and Moisturizer

There are a lot of skin care and makeup myths out there, and among the most common misconceptions is that you must choose between facial oil and moisturizer. In reality, by layering one on top of the other, you can help maximize your skin’s hydration, and that's especially the case if you have mature skin, which tends to be on the drier side. If you have mature skin, try a light oil, like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Facial Oil Light. After applying your oil evenly over your skin, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer, which is formulated with rosy pigments to help revive the look of skin’s rosy tone.

Product Pairing #3: Face Masks and More Face Masks

When it comes to face masks, live by this rule: the more the merrier. Yep, we’re talking about multi-masking (a.k.a. applying different masks to different areas of your face at the same time). Try mixing and matching the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask. Apply an even layer of masks to clean, dry skin, leave them on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Use 2-3 times a week for best results.

Product Pairing #4: Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen and Self-Tanner

Just because you want the appearance of sun-kissed skin doesn’t mean you should steer clear of sunscreen. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily as directed. But that’s not all—you should also reapply at least every two hours (or immediately after swimming or sweating), limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, UV-blocking sunglasses, and a broad-brimmed hat. You don’t have to forgo skin that looks bronze, though—simply fake it instead. To get the look of tanned skin, use a self-tanner, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Self-Tanning Towelettes for Body.
