Straight from their go-to derm.

At this point, we pretty much know everything about how Kendall and Kylie apply their show-stopping makeup and switch up their hair (we’re looking at the young sister in this duo), but when it comes to their skincare routine, we don’t know all that much. Sure, Kendall has been vocal about her past struggles with acne, and Kylie has revealed the steps behind her beauty routine. But, our remaining question is, how do they glow 24/7 (those cameras never stop rolling)? It turns out, it’s all about layering products. And their derm, Christie Kidd, spelled out their entire routine on Kylie’s app. Here’s everything you need to know about nailing that Kardashian je ne sais quoi.
Less is more. According to Kidd, simplicity is key. That means overhauling your beauty stash and getting rid of unnecessary creams and potions.
Sunblock comes first. Before anything else, you must apply SPF. That might not be a no-brainer to you, but it's every derm's anthem.
Stay away from tinted moisturizer. Why, you ask? Kidd says that because tinted moisturizer is meant to be absorbed, you’re also holding onto the pigment packed inside of it. Those extra ingredients can cause breakouts, and no Kardashian has time for that. Instead, opt for a natural option like Kylie’s fave, Mimosa Blossom Dream Cream.
Go from light to heavy. When you’re getting ready for bed (after you’ve washed off your makeup, of course), layer your prods from thin to thick, says Kidd. That means, serums come before creams. And eye creams come last. Try Kylie’s pick, Kiehl’s avocado eye treatment.
Never forget lip balm. If you ever wake up with a dry, cracked pout, it’s probably because you didn’t coat your lips in balm before you slept. Always remember this step if you want to be Kylie Lip Kit-worthy come the AM.
Mind this when you mix. Before you become your own at-home chemist, pay attention to the ingredients in your products. Kidd says that if you’re treating your acne with a benzoyl peroxide-based concoction, and you mix it with an acidic beauty product, you can exacerbate irritation instead of banishing it.
