Why Does My Skin Feel Sticky?

Why Does My Skin Feel Sticky?

Have you applied a product and immediately following your skin feels a bit sticky or tacky? Did you think the product wasn't working? This article clarifies why a product would have a sticky (not greasy) sensation after application and why it's actually a GOOD THING.

When a high performance product leaves the skin feeling slightly sticky, it is because it is meant to be followed by a moisturizer. Remember, skincare works best when it is layered properly.

There is a proper order in which to layer products. We begin with a cleanse, then essences, followed by serums, and we always finish with a moisturizer.

K-Beauty is famous for using LIGHT layers of product and the sticky feeling is in preparation for what's next.

Don't immediately discount a product because it leaves the skin a bit sticky. Instead, apply the next product in your skincare routine - always end your routine with an actual moisturizer, not a serum. You will find the sticky sensation disappears and your moisturizer absorbs better.
