A proper skincare routine is vital if you want to have healthy and glowing skin. It is not rocket science and does not involve numerous expensive products. You just have to be consistent enough to use those few products that match your skin type and concern. If you are a novice, you would certainly be doubtful about the application of products. It's a quick guide to how to build your skincare routine.
Essential Skincare Products You Will Need
A facial cleanser is the most basic product for our skin, the first step to your skicare routine. Our skin comes in contact with dirt and infinite pollutants. These need to be removed daily to prevent the clogging of skin pores. Using a cleanser twice a day helps in maintaining clean, healthy, and hygienic skin.
The important thing is to find the perfect cleanser for our skin type. Oily or acne-prone skin needs foaming liquid facewash, dry skin needs lotion/cream, and sensitive skin needs oil-based cleanser, micellar water works for every skin type though.
The second step should be of applying serum. If facewash helps in removing dirt from the skin, the serum helps in bringing glow and youthfulness to the skin. People in their thirties should start using serum regularly as per their skin type.
Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, retinol, and vitamin C are generally looked after while searching for a 'good' serum. If one helps in hydrating the skin, the other helps in brightening it. If one helps in boosting collagen production, the other treats the redness and irritation.
Now what's required is the application of moisturizer. Everyone knows that moisturizers moisturize, hydrate, and soften the skin but very few know that all skin types need a moisturizer that too all year round. Yes, our skin needs moisturizer in the summer as much as it needs it during the winter.
The choice of moisturizer depends on the skin type. If oily skin needs gel-based moisturizers, dry skin needs cream-based moisturizers, and normal or combination skin would be alright with lotions.
Sunscreen is the last step of skincare routine. Today sunscreen is as important as facewash and moisturizers are. One should not go outside without applying sunscreen if one wants to maintain healthy skin. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher should be chosen for good coverage.
Applying sunscreen regularly not only helps in preventing sunburns and premature aging but also reduces the risk of skin cancer. The major and most commonly known benefit is to fight against the UV rays that attack the immune system too.
