Layering, the Japanese Skincare Routine for Flawless Skin

Ever heard of layering? The idea comes from Asia and involves using a series of skin treatments daily. In contrast to BB creams, which are an all-in-one option, layering takes beauty regimes back to basics. The goal is to hydrate skin to the max: different products are layered on to gently cleanse and deeply moisturise. Devotees of the Japanese beauty regime say it's the secret to a glowing complexion, so let's take a closer look at the latest skincare craze. There are six steps to this ritual, so slow down and take your time.


Remove Make-Up

Oil gently dislodges impurities and make-up, including waterproof mascara, and does it more effectively than any other make-up remover.



A gentle cleanser will rid your skin of pollution, micro-particles, and dust, as well as removing the facial oil.



Apply a toner or floral water to tighten pores and purify and brighten your face.



A light-weight serum has a higher concentration of active ingredients and is great for deep hydration. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is packed with brightening active ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Centella Asiatica that penetrate up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin.



Regardless of your skin type, your skin needs moisturiser. Select a moisturiser that meets your needs, such as anti-wrinkle, anti-ageing, anti-fatigue, mattifying or SPF.

Eye Cream

The delicate area around your eyes does not contain sebaceous glands, which means an eye cream is essential to keep your eye contours hydrated. You can try the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Eye Cream to moisturize the skin around eyes, boost radiance, and reduce wrinkles.

Layering has a devoted following. Though the routine does take time, it's a great way to pamper yourself and unwind. On days when you are not in a rush, give layering a try to maintain your youthful radiance and enjoy radiant and glowing skin.
