Consider Your Skin Type

You should figure out your skin type before you build a skincare routine. Some products and ingredients will be more effective than others for different skin types. Oily skin types may want water-based moisturizers, while dry skin types may want thick, oil-based moisturizers. Once you figure out your skin type, it's easier to determine what products to use.

There are usually four main types of skin:

  • Dry
  • Sensative
  • Oily
  • Some people have a combination

The best way to determine your skin type is to make note of your skin throught the day and get an idea of how it feels. Of course, you can always consult your local dermatologist.

Creating Your Routine

After determining your skin type , you can zero in on products that will work for you. Many products will let you know which skin types they’re best for, so it’s easy to find products for you. Here are six steps to follow when creating a skincare routine from scratch.

1. Determine Your Skin Type

The skin needs certain amount of moisture to maintain and repair itself. Your skin type tells you how much of your daily routine should be dedicated to hydration.

2. Consider Your Lifestyle & Diet

If your skin has hydration deficiency, chances are your diet and lifestyle are missing essential vitamins.

3. Find a Cleanser You Like

It's important to start with clean skin so your other products can do the job they were meant for. A gentle face wash at the beginning or end of your day can help remove impurities.

4. Find a Moisturizer with Sunscreen

Even if you have oily skin, it's not the same as having moisturized skin. Keeping your skin hydradted equals a radiant, healthy complection. Also - SUNSCREEN.

5. Start Adding On

Once you've developed a good habit of cleaning and hydrating, you can start focusing on more specific issues. Products like retinol treatments, toners, eye cream, exfoliators, and more can really help you take things to the next leve.
