Skincare routine

We all want perfect skin but “perfect skin” does not happen overnight. Having the most expensive or best skincare products is only a part of the journey, applying and using these products in the right order and at the right time is an extremely important step.

Every good skincare routine should follow this order;

STEP 1: CLEANSE

The first step in every skincare routine should be to cleanse your face. It is advisable to cleanse twice a day, once in the morning and another at night. Also pick the right cleanser for your skin type and what you would like to treat.

STEP 2: TONER

Applying a toner should come after cleansing your face.

STEP 3: SERUM

Your serum comes next, it is advisable to apply antioxidants like vitamin c during the day to protect your skin from free radicals and treatments at night as they work better away from sun exposure.


STEP 4 : MOISTURIZE

Use a moisturizer to lock in other products used, it is recommended that a light weight moisturizer is best for the day and a heavier one for the night.

STEP 5 : SUNSCREEN

Using a sunscreen should be your last step in your skincare routine but it is also the most important step, pick the right one for your skin type and work with it. 

A good rule of thumb to follow is applying your products from the lightest to the heaviest as this helps for maximum absorption. 

Some noteworthy tips are; 

  • First of all, know that there is no such thing as the “perfect skin”, a lot of factors go into consideration with the way our skin presents itself, from hormones, to genes, to weather and so on.
  • The myth about people with oily skin not needing moisturizers has been debunked, look for the best moisturizer for your skin type. 
  • Know what you are treating and build your routine around that.
  • Avoid using physical exfoliants like scrubs on your face, but if you must it should not be so often.
  • Avoid using a towel, if possible air dry your face.
  • Stay away from the sun as much as possible, this would solve 50% of your problem especially if you are dealing with hyperpigmentation.
  • Not all ingredients pair well together, educate yourself on what ingredients go well together.
  • You can start using Retinol if you are 25 years and above, but avoid them if you are trying to conceive.
