How to build a skincare routine


Following a daily skin cleansing routine is essential to keep your skin beautiful, soft and healthy. After all, your face deserves your attention to prevent premature aging, blemishes, and expression marks.



Skincare to make you shine

You value your skin, and that's why you probably find yourself researching and educating yourself on ways to keep your skin healthy. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to spend a fortune on expensive products that promise miracles. Establish a consistent daily skincare routine, and you can achieve surprising results. Your primary concern should be keeping your skin as clean as possible to allow the active ingredients in creams and lotions to penetrate the skin better.

Step 1: Cleanse

The first step in your skin cleansing routine is to wash your face with a cleanser that is suitable for our skin type. If you have oily skin, for example, choose an oil-free cleanser, but leave your skin well moisturized.

Tip: Use cold water to wash your face, as hot water can worsen your skin dryness or create a rebound effect increasing oil production for oily skin.



Step 2: Tone

After cleansing your face well, use a toner that is suitable for your skin type to balance the natural PH levels of your skin and absorb minerals and vitamin.



Step 3 - Moisturize

Did you know? Even oily skins need to moisturize the skin daily to maintain your skin soft and glowy. Having the correct moisturizer for your skin type is essential. Oily skin types will require a lighter moisturizer, while dry skin types will require a more nourishing one. Tip: If your moisturizer feels "too heavy," you can emulsify it with a few drops of water or hydrating mist.



Step 4 - Night Care

A good night of sleep renews and restores your skin. To take the best of your beauty sleep, choose a night moisturizer that can deeply nourish and help with the natural renewal process while you sleep. Making this step a part of your skincare routine can diminish signs of aging and have you waking up to a bright, youthful and radiant skin complexion.




Step 5 - Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin helps to remove dead skin cells that clog your pores and can dull your complexion. You can either purchase a recommended exfoliant or choose from a variety of simple exfoliant home recipes. Depending on your skin type, you should exfoliate two or more times a week. Just apply the exfoliant and let it dry for 5-10 minutes. Using lukewarm water, gently scrub off the exfoliant while scrubbing your face.

 

Step 6 - Mask and Treat

Masks will give you surprising results when used in conjunction with your skincare routine. Find an ideal mask for your skin type or condition that you wish to address. Tip: Same as the moisturizer, you can emulsify your mask with a few drops of water to allow for an even application throughout your face. Apply the mask and allow it to dry for 5-10 minutes. Using lukewarm water, gently remove the mask. You can use masks after your exfoliation since it will allow for better absorption after removing the dead skin layer.



Step 7 - Prevent and Correct

Following a basic skincare routine will help keep your skin healthy and nourished. However, if you have specific skin concerns, such as acne, lack of firmness, signs of aging, and others, you might want to consider adding a serum to your skincare routine. Even though serums are optional, they can take care of your specific skin concerns and prevent them from getting worse. Just apply your favorite serum after using your toner every day for fantastic results.



Step 8 - Targeted Care

Do you have any areas that you want to focus? Several skincare products focus specifically on eyes, lips, wrinkles, fine lines, and other targeted care areas. This step can enhance your skincare routine and, over time with regular usage, show dramatic results.
