Confused about your skincare routine? Use this guide for the perfect BEGINNERS SKINCARE ROUTINE!
The hundreds of products and 10 step skincare routines out there are enough to scare away anyone – so let’s take a step back with these tips on how to build the perfect basic skincare routine for beginners.
First it’s super important to figure out what your skin type is before choosing your products because it really does make a difference. So take a second to see where your skin fits in whether its dry, oily, combination or sensitive.
There are really only a few skincare products that are essential for healthy skin and after that everything else is an add on! So don’t over complicate it when you start out. You need just 3 products that should be used daily to keep your skin looking and feeling great – a cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen! You can use the same cleanser and moisturiser twice a day and apply your sunscreen throughout the day for sun protection.
It may seem unbelievable but everything else is an add on depending on what skin concern you want to target and deal with. Toners and serums come along with ingredients to address every skin issue be it wrinkles, dry skin or pigmentation.
If you have oily skin you can look for products with ingredients to regulate the excess sebum like clay masks. If you breakout often look for an acne spot treatment. If you have flaky skin you can indulge in a facial oil or soothing sheet mask.
Once you’ve mastered the basic steps add only 1 new product to your routine at a time. Overloading your skin with new products means you won’t know what caused your latest breakout! Just figuring out your skincare steps isn’t enough – you need to really follow it religiously and consistently twice a day.
Give your routine time to work, you probably won’t see results immediately. Wait for at least a month and we’re sure you’ll see a difference. If you’re one of those lucky people who’s able to just splash water on your face or use basic products and still have amazing skin, then stick to it! There’s no reason to change up your routine if what you’re already doing works.
Now you should have no trouble putting together the perfect skincare routine! Until next time stay tuned and stay Glamrs.
