2023 has started, and it is time to leave all of our skin concerns in the past! There are many different problems that we battle with when it comes to our skin - some of us struggle with acne, some of us have stubborn hyperpigmentation that we cannot seem to get rid of. No matter what your skin issues are, having a skincare routine is highly recommended.
Putting together a skincare routine can be a daunting task, often we are confused about which product should be applied first. Read on to find out how to achieve the best skin possible in the new year.
Step One: Cleanser
When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you should be doing is splashing your face with warm water and washing with a gentle cleanser. It is important to use a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type. (Dry, Oily, Normal, Combination)
Step Two: Toner
A toner serves multiple purposes. Each toner is intended for a different skin issue so it is important to identify what your skin concerns are before picking a toner. Toner refreshes your skin without drying it out and also prepares your skin to drink up the products applied afterwards.
Step 3: Serums
Serums are nutrient-dense treatments that target a specific skincare concern. There are many different serums that are on the market at the moment. Anti-oxidant serums are recommended for daytime use. They assist in neutralising damage from harmful UV rays and environmental pollutants.
Step 4: Moisturiser
No matter what skin type you are, using a moisturiser is vital for the health and overall appearance of your skin. We need the extra hydration every day as our skin is exposed to harsh weather/ chemical conditions. It is recommended that the best time to apply moisturiser is when the skin is still damp.
Step 5: Sunscreen
This should always be the last step of your daytime skincare routine, and is also a step that should never be skipped! Many skincare issues are caused by the damage that the sun has done to our skin, so it is very important to purchase a good quality sunscreen that can offer you protection from harmful rays.
Every skincare routine is personal to you. We all have different skincare goals but knowing the basics can be a great help and a great place to start.
