Finding Your Skincare Sweet Spot: Perfect Product Proportions

In the world of skincare, it's not just about what products you use but how much of them you use. We've all been there—slathering on too much of something that should be applied sparingly or skimping on a product that deserves a generous touch. The truth is, different products demand different quantities, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach.

To help you get the most out of your skincare routine, here are some essential guidelines to consider. We have a wealth of skincare products at our disposal, but today, let's focus on five that often raise questions: masques, toners, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreen.


Unmasking the Magic: Getting Masque Application Right

 We adore masques, and for good reason. Our two little masterpieces offer a rejuvenating experience akin to a mini facial in a jar. The Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herb Infused Masque delivers lifting, tightening, brightening, and hydrating benefits. To make the most of it a dime-sized portion is all you need. Leave it on for 20 minutes, 1-3 times a week, and you'll see the magic happen.

Our Magic Matcha - Green Tea Superfood Masque is another skincare savior. Use it every 4-5 days for a calming, balancing, and pigmentation-minimizing effect. A dime-sized portion will suffice for this miracle worker.


Toning Up: The Power of Proper Toner Application

Our three fabulous toners are more than just aromatherapeutic mood boosters; they're packed with skin-loving ingredients like witch hazel, probiotics, and antibacterial defenses. To fully reap their benefits, spray them onto a cotton pad or a reusable (washable) face pad. Wipe your face and don't forget your neck and décolletage. A minimum of five sprays in the morning and at night is the way to go. If you're worried about running out, our large, refillable 8-ounce bottles will keep you well-stocked.


Moisturize with Precision!

Hydration is essential, but the amount you need depends on your skin type. Dry and mature skin benefits from a nickel-sized amount of our rich and luxurious Be Nourished - Age Defying Moisturizer, while normal/combination skin is content with a dime-sized dollop. If you're dealing with oily or acne-prone skin, consider lightweight moisturizers at night such as Serenity - Brightening Moisturizer, our lightweight anti-inflammatory creation for all skin types. To soak up the benefits of Serenity, use this guideline: Oily/Acneic skin: 1 pump. Normal skin: 2 pumps. Dry skin; 3 pumps. 


Serum Secrets: Optimal A.M. and P.M. Skincare

For morning use, a dime-sized portion of serum is perfect. To maximize the efficacy (or any product, for that matter), allow it to sit on your skin for a few minutes before applying the next layer, whether it’s moisturizer or SPF. At night, when your skin is in repair mode, opt for a nickel-sized amount, particularly if your serum contains ingredients like Niacin or Vitamin C.

Let it work its magic before adding any other products. We offer several products that target specific concerns such as aging, acne, hyperpigmentation and much more. Find your perfect Jenette All Natural Skin Care perfect serum here!


Sunscreen Savvy: Don’t Skimp on SPF

Finally, let's not forget sunscreen—it's a must-have, no questions asked. The amount you use is just as vital as how often you put it on. Remember to apply your sunscreen at least 20 minutes before heading outside, and if you're planning to soak up the sun for an extended period, don't skip the reapplication every two hours. Also, make sure your sunscreen is clean, reef-safe, and contains 15-20% zinc for the best protection.

Tricia Trimble, the founder of Suntegrity, one of our beloved brands at our boutique and spa, Being in LA, recommends using at least a quarter teaspoon for your face, neck, and décolletage. To ensure comprehensive broad-spectrum sun protection for your entire body, follow the Skin Cancer Foundation's advice and generously apply a full ounce—about the volume of a shot glass. Sadly, most people use less than half of this quantity, putting their skin at risk.


The Takeaway

Unlocking flawless skin isn't just about the products you choose; it's about mastering the art of perfect product portions. By following these guidelines, you'll be well on your way to achieving your skincare goals. So, embrace the luxury of self-care and treat your skin right—it deserves it.
