    I've never found an answer to this question. Hope someone out there can help. Every morning I apply several products to my face. All of them say to apply to clean, dry skin. So my question is: What is the most effective order to apply the products; for example, Vitamin C Cream, Daily Moisturizer, Face Serum, Dark spot cream, Sunblock. Thanks!

    You don't want to apply too many products in the morning. Use Serum, dark spot, tinted moisturizer w/ spf higher than 20. At night use vitamin c. Rule of thumb in applying the thinnist to thickest. I hope this answers your question.
