Skincare Routine For Healthy Skin – Its Easy If You Do It Smart

So you think you have a robust beauty regimen already and absolutely don’t need another tip on how to take better care of your skin? Well, well, just read through for a minute and you’ll certainly turn your back in the myth that more is better

Simple, Easy Daily Skin Regimen

Skincare does not have to be complicated. What you do need to keep is a separate set of routine for daytime and another for nighttime. In both cases that are only three basic steps to start with:

Step 1: Cleanse

Good Cleanse

Give your skin a good cleanse with nothing but clean running water and a gentle facial cleanser. Make sure to use one that suits your skin type and weather condition, most especially if you have a sensitive skin type. Acne-prone and excessively oily skin can benefit from cleansers that contain salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) such as glycolic acid or lactic acid.

Step 2: Tone

Idea of toning

If you haven’t embraced yet the more beneficial idea of toning, that is, taming your pores and your skin texture, rather than disinfecting your skin then, it’s about time you did so. That means, no more alcohols in your toners. Look instead for toners that will purify but also tighten your pores without drying your skin. Keep the moisture locked in before water evaporates into the thin, surrounding air.

Step 3: Moisturize

Moisturizing products

Seal in the hydration with moisturizing products, by which it doesn’t mean you should keep counting on heavy and oily formulations to do the job. The oilier your skin is, the more you should choose lightweight formulations in lotion and serum to do the job. If you have access to cosmetic grade essential oils, these will also significantly perk up your skin’s moisture levels with these products’ ability to quickly yet deeply penetrate the skin without causing the surface to feel and appear greasy.

Step 4: Protect and Regenerate

Protect and Regenerate

More specifically, protect during the day. Make sure to top your routine with sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. Fold in antioxidants, most especially Vitamin C, E and Niacinamide, to add UV protection but also help shield your skin from free radicals and blue light emissions from your tech gadgets.

At night, top your skincare routine by prioritizing regeneration. If you have mature skin, this is where your retinols and AHAs come in. Pack in your thick moisturizers and let your skin soak in their therapeutic goodness while you give yourself a beauty sleep.

Step 5: Exfoliate

Exfoliate Skin

It’s one part of your routine you can’t skip but, there’s no need to do this daily. The more sensitive your skin is, the more seldom you should exfoliate.
