Ask Your Esthetician: How much product should I use?

This is a common question at the spa. First of all, if your are using our spa's clinical grade skincare, a little goes a long way! My first recommendation is not to overuse your products.


A good rule of thumb is to apply products from thinnest to thickest. This allows the active ingredients to absorb without any barriers.

Be sure to apply your product to the tips of your fingertips and then “dab” onto your face. This way you will avoid the product absorbing into your palms.

How Much to Use


I recommend the size of a quarter. This should be enough product to cover your neck as well. Apply to dry skin for about 30 seconds to break down any make up or skincare. Massage into the skin, add water and then massage for another 30 seconds before rinsing.

Correcting Serums:

Your serums are made to brighten, firm or hydrate your skin. This “corrective” stop should be applied while your skin is still damp from cleansing. Two pumps or about the size of a dime should be sufficient to cover your face. Add a little more if you are treating the neck area as well.

Eye Cream:

A little goes a long way with eye creams! Usually a pump is sufficient for both eyes. Be sure to use your ring finger to apply serums or creams to this delicate eye area.


Use the size of a nickel for the face and an additional nickel size for the neck. The goal is a thin even layer across the entire face and neck without any excess.


A common mistake is to use less spf than necessary. Be sure to apply a quarter size amount to the face alone. This is your number one anti-aging ingredient and it is important to use enough. An additional quarter size is needed for the chest and don’t forget your ears!

Face Mask: 

Use about two quarter size amounts of face mask for the face and neck. Make sure you are applying an even layer. A good time to apply a face mask is in the morning, wait 10 minutes, then hop in the shower and rinse off.
