Having a proper skincare routine is quite a hassle for many people; some don’t have the time, some aren’t sure about what products to use, and there are some people who are just too lazy. However, skincare routines don’t always have to be extremely thorough and extensive.
You might have seen your friends following that super popular 10-step Korean skincare regime and applying hundreds of products on their face, but you don’t necessarily have to do that.
If you don’t have the time or energy for that, you can make do with limited products as well.
Here is an easy way to build a simple skincare routine that you can follow every week without any inconvenience.
Identify Your Skin Issues
First things first, you need to identify your skin issues before you choose the right products for your skincare regime. Do you have a lot of blackheads and whiteheads, is you skin acne-prone, do you have skin pigmentation issues – these are some of the things that you need to figure out before you invest in the required skin products.
Know Your Skin Type
This is closely related to the above point since each skin type comes with its fair share of issues. Also, there are millions of skin products out there, but not every product is suitable for each skin type.
Some products do come with the tag ‘suitable for all skin types,’ but there are many that are particularly for dry skin, combination skin, oily skin, acne-prone skin, etc.
So, first, know your skin type and then find the right products.
Buy the Products
Once you’ve identified your skin and highlighted all the skin issues that you face, the next step is to buy the right products suitable for your skin.
At this point, you also need to determine the steps that you’ll be following in your skincare routine. These include cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliating, scrubbing, and toning, to name a few.
While each step plays a very important role, you don’t particularly need to follow all of them if you have time constraints, for example.
Determine The Correct Order
The one basic thing about skincare routines is that they require you to follow the steps in the correct sequence or order.
To give you an idea, here is a simple order that most people follow.
- Eye cream
- Double cleanser
And so on.
So, depending on what products you’ll be, including in your skincare routine, you need to determine the correct order.
Give It Time
The last thing to do is fix a time when you’ll be following all the steps of your skincare routine. Most people choose to do it at night because while you sleep, all the amazing ingredients of those incredible products do the job on your skin overnight.
Following a skincare regime doesn’t have to be a difficult process; you just need to find your way around it and use a limited number of products on your skin.
