Ask Dr. Schultz

Should we apply toner and serum before sunscreen or after sunscreen. I understand moisturiser is after sunscreen. Thank you.

Asked by Amanda 3 Rep.

Dear Dr Schultz, I understand you have said sunscreen 1st on the face, then moisturiser. How about toner and serum? Are they before or after sunscreen? Thank you for your time
