The Treatment Skincare Products That Work

In our recent survey, we discovered that over 60% of women now use more skincare products per day than ever before. Once upon a time, a splash of water and a thick cream massaged into the skin was enough to class as a ‘skincare regime’. Nowadays, with all the advancements and developments within the skincare industry, we now have everything to hand for the best complexion of our lives.

The reason so many women are using more products is because they are adding in the ‘treatment step’ to their regimes. Now, women can treat their biggest skincare concerns, whilst maintaining their original cleanse and moisturize and makeup application.

What is the ‘Treatment Step’?

The treatment step includes introducing products to our skin during the cleanse and prep stage, which do more than just clean and moisturize. These include toners, serums, facial mists, antioxidants and primers. All of each can be used inbetween products, and they deliver a treatment boost to the skin to correct, protect and beautify.

So which are the most popular treatment steps, and why are they so beneficial? We break it down below:

Toners and Clarifiers

Toners and clarifiers tend to be used after cleansing but before moisturizing, and are an excellent step to fully remove dirt, grime and impurities. Sometimes, your cleanser or facial wash won’t always clear away everything, especially those who wear heavy makeup.

Toners are also most helpful for people with oily or acne-prone skin, as they balance the skin, tighten pores and encourage exfoliation, meaning the skin renews quicker. All in one, they are brilliant for refreshing the skin, and ensure the cleanest finish before applying your next products.

Best for: Those who suffer from acne-prone, oily or aging skin. Great for those who wear makeup everyday or are exposed to pollution.


Serums are the ideal products to apply for the ultimate treatment step. Thicker in texture to toners, they offer highly concentrated doses of essential anti-aging active ingredients including peptides, antioxidants, vitamins and brighteners which work to correct and treat. The best thing about serums is that they are packed with ingredients tailored to treat each concern.

Although thicker textures, they tend to be ultra-lightweight and fast absorbing when applied to the face. They are best applied before moisturizer to work their intense magic, leaving the skin rejuvenated, nourished and fully cared for.

Best for: Those with dry and combination skin who need stronger, more potent skincare steps to treat the skin as well as keep moisturized.

Facial Mists

Spritzes and mists are becoming more loved for their multiple abilities to improve not only the skin, but to help with well-being too. Light mists have the abilities to revitalize dull complexions, give a quick burst of cooling moisture, tone and refine, and provide an awakening, uplifting scent.

You’ll find them enriched with nourishing vitamins and botanical extracts, in which just a quick spritz will instantly provide a healthy boost for skin. Facial mists are becoming even more popular as they get discovered for leaving a healthy-looking dewy finish too, enhancing the skins natural glow, and also setting makeup too!

Best for: Those on the go whose skin needs a quick pick-me-up, those with dull skin. 


Your skin is your largest organ, so it super important to take care of it and protect it. This is where antioxidants come in, which are currently booming across America’s beauty market. They protect the skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. Daily use underneath your moisturizer boosts the health and appearance of your skin, including reducing the signs of aging, calming inflamed skin, tightening and toning.

The more potent antioxidants can be applied to help reverse the signs of sun damage and pigmentation too.

Best for: Those who live in high pollution cities or are exposed to the great outdoors often. Also, those who need to improve their skin health, and protect against further damage.


A face or eye primer is a vital first step in every cosmetics regime; and works wonders when applied straight after moisturizing. They work instantaneously to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and lines, minimize visible pores and even out skin tone. Enriched with antioxidants and vitamins, specific primers target all types of skin concerns from oily skin to redness, whilst enhancing moisture levels.

However, they are best known for their abilities to create a velvety smooth base for makeup to be applied, plus helping to keep it staying put!

Best for: Those who wear makeup daily or went it to last all day. Also, for those who need that extra skin treatment step before applying foundation, such as to calm redness or smooth out bumps.
