Skincare routines can be stressful. For everyone who has tried to get into skincare but got overwhelmed, here’s a simple routine you can try.
The cleanser helps to clean your skin and get it ready for the other products. It’s best to use a gentle cleanser. Don’t use pressure or scrub aggressively. A face soap and a face cleanser are the same thing.
2. Hydrating toner
This is a lightweight step where your skin gets hydrated after being cleansed. This is what prepares it for treatment.
3. Antioxidant serum
Everyone should have an antioxidant serum in their routine as it helps revive dull skin. It heals your moisture barrier and prevents your skin from being damaged by environmental stressors like smoke and dust. It also prevents premature ageing as well.
Moisturisers are a must-have whether you have dry skin or oily skin. You can use moisturisers that are specifically for your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, you can go for a lightweight moisturiser like emulsions.
This is the most important step of an ideal skincare routine. Sunscreens protect your skin from sun rays that cause damage to the skin.
At night, repeat without the sunscreen. A basic skincare routine would help a lot with the texture and dullness of the skin. It will improve the overall health of your skin. After easing your skin into the new routine and you are consistent with it, you can start to add other steps to your routine like treatment serums and other hydrating or nourishing steps.
