Your Step By Step Guide To Applying Your Products

  • Start with cleansed skin. The Squalane Cleanser is great but this needs to be massaged between the palms of your hands until the consistency changes to a balm. This could be between 10 and 30 seconds. If you find this too long, have a look at The Ordinary Glucoside Foaming Cleanser or Glycolipid Cream Cleanser.
  • Once your skin is clean, add 2 to 3 drops of Hyaluronic Acid to the palm of your hand and massage or pat it on your face and neck.
  • As soon as this is absorbed, you can do the same with your Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Glucoside.
  • You may wish to add a moisturizer, or your SPF may be moisturizing enough.
  • For your evening routine, start with cleansed skin again.
  • Apply your Hyaluronic Acid
  • Follow with your NIOD ELAN or use Ascorbyl Glucoside. There´s no need to have 2 different Vitamin Cs, especially if it´s not in your budget.
  • Once your serums are absorbed, add a couple of drops of B Oil.

The Ordinary For Brighter Skin

The Ordinary & NIOD Skincare Routine For Brighter Skin – these are the recommended products, but if you already have similar products from other brands, don´t feel you have to buy new ones. Just make sure there are no conflicts by checking The Ordinary Conflicts here.

If you don’t want to spend the money on the NIOD products recommended, you can buy similar ones from The Ordinary range. Below are numerous recommendations to suit all budgets.

It is ok to mix and match your brands as long as you check conflicts! You do not have to buy the whole skincare routine from The Ordinary & NIOD.

Cleansers – Brighter Skin Regimen

If you already have cleansers that you love, keep using them! No need to buy more. We have lots of posts in the Facebook Group all about cleansers; just search #cleansers. There are now 5 different cleansers between The Ordinary & NIOD to choose from, and you can find them all here. If you´re someone who likes a quick, simple cleanse with no fuss, look at The Glucoside Foaming Cleanser.

Hyaluronic Acid – Brighter Skin Regimen

The Hylamide Brand has been discontinued, but don´t worry. There are other Hyaluronic products to choose from. You have The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid, Marine Hyaluronics, or if you fancy something a little more luxurious, then go for the award-winning NIOD MMHC2.

Ascorbyl Glucoside/NIOD ELAN Vitamin C – Brighter Skin Regimen

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside & NIOD ELAN are recommended in the Brighter Skin Routine, but you don´t have to buy both. Just use one in the morning and evening. You could also try The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate or one of the many Vitamin C products. Just be sure to check the conflicts. If you choose a Vitamin C derivative, the only conflict is Niacinamide, but once you choose a direct Vitamin C, there are a lot more conflicts, and these may be recommended to use in the evening. If you already have a vitamin C product that you love – use it up! There is no need to buy another one.

B Oil by The Ordinary

B Oil is an amazing oil with some of the most fabulous ingredients, but if you don’t like the feeling of oils, use the moisturiser you’re already using, as long as there are no conflicts. There’s a whole range of different oils in The Ordinary at all different prices as well as 3 different moisturizers now.


NIOD has the Survival Range but if you already have an SPF you like, there´s no need to buy a new one. We have lots of recommendations for SPFs in the Facebook Group if you are still searching for the perfect SPF.
