Serums, oils, moisturizers, toners, essences, eye creams… Now, hold on. Which comes first and where does it go? Human skin is remarkably intelligent, and it sends signals in times of need as well as when it feels appreciated when people pay attention to what it needs. As a result of doing the day’s activities, the skin comes in contact with matter, gases, and liquids, so taking good care of the skin should not be a matter of choice for any individual.
Healthy skin cannot be achieved and maintained without understanding and incorporating routines that can help. In our class 101; the beginner’s guide to building a skincare routine, we will cover the steps to building a regiment from the ground up
- Skincare begins with cleansing and face washing. As the skin is exposed to the environment throughout the day, dead skin, dirt, and particles are taken away from it by cleansing. Cleansing should be done every morning and evening for at least two minutes, massaging the cleanser in circular motions into the skin.
- Toning hydrates, balances, and increases the water content of the skin. Moisturizing and this step aren’t the same because their molecular sizes aren’t the same. With a much smaller molecular size, toners penetrate the skin more deeply.
- Moisturizing the skin creates a layer that prevents moisture from escaping, adds moisture, and softens it.
- Apply SPF at the end of the process. It protects and prevents harmful UV rays from the sun, premature wrinkling, and hyperpigmentation.
These steps work either to complement what the skin is already doing or act as a replacement for current deficiencies. Your skin will benefit from providing it with what it needs
