The key to luminous skin is learning how to apply beauty products in the right order. Here are six important steps to ensure that you’re getting the most out of all of your favourite skincare products.


Before you apply any beauty products, cleansing your skin properly is essential. Make sure to wash your face thoroughly and then use a soft clean towel to pat skin dry.
PRO TIP: Avoid using hot water as it will dry out your skin.


Simply put, toning helps to freshen and hydrate your skin by maintain your skin’s pH balance. The Empathy Hydrating Face Mist has hyaluronic acid to plump up your skin and the anti-inflammatory properties of witch hazel to calm and soothe it. Close eyes completely before spritzing; hold bottle at least 12 inches (30 cm) away from face and mist two or three times.
PRO TIP: Use the Hydrating Face Mist  throughout the day to re-energize and rehydrate skin.

Face Oil or Serum:

After toning your skin, consider applying Empathy’s best selling Beauty Elixir Botanical Face Oil. With proven nutrient-rich ingredients such as argan, coconut, olive and evening primrose, you’ll see a noticeable improvement of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Essence of lavender and chamomile help soothe and smooth tired skin. Apply one drop to clean skin morning and or night.
PRO TIP: Use a drop of the Beauty Elixir Botanical Face Oil anytime during the day to help dry skin.

Eye cream:

No matter what your age, eye cream is an important step to treat the delicate skin around your eyes to prevent treat puffiness and prevent wrinkles. Use your ring finger to dab a pea-size drop cream around your eyes.
PRO TIP: Make sure not to rub eye cream into the skin as tugging on the skin can actually cause or accentuate wrinkles.


The magic of moisturizer is that it contains a combination of humectant ingredients such as hyaluronic acid that draw water into the skin and then ingredients such as ceramides to lock in the hydration.
PRO TIP: Simplify your beauty routine by adding a drop of Empathy’s fast-absorbing 100% Argan Oil into your moisturizer for an extra boost of moisture.


Ask any dermatologist and they will tell you that daily use of sunscreen is essential to help prevent skin burns, skin cancer and premature aging. Ensure that your sunscreen has broad-spectrum sun protection and has a minimum of 30 SPF.
PRO TIP: If you spend a lot of time outdoors use sunscreen with a minimum of 60 SPF and reapply it every two hours.

** And don’t forget to use the Hydrating Lip Balm! Empathy’s balm is loaded with all-natural olive oil and shea butter to keep lips smooth. Use as often as you want throughout the day and remember to use it before you apply lipstick.
