However, understanding all the secrets on how to take care of our skin the right way can be a little confusing. In what order should I apply my skincare products to obtain best results? Should my morning routine be different from my evening routine? Is it really necessary to apply SPF every day? To help you get through all this confusion, we reached out to cosmetologist María Fernanda Torres ( @theskincaretea ), who answered our most common skincare concerns.

What is the first step I should take to begin my journey to healthy skin?

Any tips for applying products to your face?

"To get the most out of your skincare routine, remember to always apply your products from thinner to thicker (from liquid to thicker consistencies) and leave sunscreen last.

Do I need eye cream or is my moisturizer enough?

"It really depends on the condition of your eye area! If you have pigmentation, fine lines, puffiness or bags, I 100% recommend an eye cream that suits your needs.

How long should I use a product before seeing results?

"It depends a lot on the product and the active ingredients it contains, for example hyaluronic acid takes effect immediately, the skin looks supple and hydrated instantly. However, a treatment with vitamin C can take 2 to 4 weeks to take effect. In short, it depends on the ingredients and how your skin reacts to them (keep in mind that every skin is different)." - M.T.
