What is an Effective day and night skincare routine?
How do you know where to start? The most important detail to begin with is to remove your face of all the external grime that has built up during the day. If you’re a regular wearer of make-up, be sure to use make-up remover before proceeding further with your skincare routine.
Next, apply your cleanser of choice. Cleansing your face after applying make-up remover ensures that your face is clean and ready for skincare treatments, as the initial remover only gets the first layer of dirt off of your face and this will also remove any traces of makeup that was leftover.
Always use toner after cleansing, if you have toner available. This step is important because toner essentially gets your skin ready for your skincare routine. Think of it as pre-gaming for your skin, if you will.
Once you’ve applied your toner, you’re ready to apply any serums necessary, depending on what you’re looking for in skincare. The great thing about serums is that they are more specialized to target certain parts of the body. You can apply serums towards fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, and so on.
After you’ve finished with your chosen serums, it’s time to moisturize your skin after all the formulas you have just absorbed into your skin. Moisturizing not only helps to keep the skin hydrated but to add a layer of protection for your skincare so that the products don’t escape the skin faster.
You may also apply eye creams if preferred in this step which can be beneficial due to the lack of skin around the eyes. This is the thinnest amount of skin on the face, so it’s wise and highly recommended to take care of this area on a regular basis, as it’s often the first spot to show signs of aging.
Now that the hard tasks are over, you can treat yourself with a face mask if you like! Especially in winter, don’t forget about your lips! The area around your lips and the lips themselves get dehydrated just as much as the rest of your skin. Applying lip balm regularly will help to manage this problem.
