Dark spots. Wrinkles. Crepiness. Acne. Etc. So many skin concerns.
And beauty stores offer over 20,000 products. And you wonder “What should my skincare routine be?”
It is simple. There is a “baseline” you should follow. And add products for your specific skin concerns. Otherwise, you will age prematurely.
Steps of A Complete Skincare Routine
The most important part of a skincare routine is that you do it every single day. Morning and night.
This will give you the greatest skin transformation and best skin health.
Below is the baseline you start with.
Wash your face to clean pores from buildup. It prepares your skin for the next product so it can penetrate and work better. It also helps minimize the pores.
- Vitamin C serum
- SPF moisturizer
SPF is a must every single day. It is your most powerful weapon against premature aging. The sun causes 80% of all signs of aging. Look for a broad spectrum SPF 30 and up.
- Remove makeup + cleanse
Use an oil cleanser. It is the quickest way to remove makeup. It melts the makeup and also gets rid of oiliness, SPF, dead skin, and any dirt and grime. Sleeping with makeup on is a no-no.
- Exfoliate 3-4x a week
Use a glycolic or a lactic acid peel. Exfoliation removes the top layer of skin that carries the most damage and signs of aging. It fights dark spots and pigmentation. And will give you a healthy glow.
Use a cream or a hyaluronic acid gel. Just like you get thirsty and need water, your skin needs a moisturizer. If you want to tackle wrinkles and crepiness, get one with collagen peptides or with retinoids. If you prefer an oil-free gel-type moisturizer, pick one with hyaluronic acid.
