How to have a Skincare Routine

Now, let us talk about your skincare routine! After my first introductory post to the blog, it is only natural that we get down to business.

Now, before you continue reading, it is important for you to realise that like most things in life, consistency is key. For you to see a difference you have to keep at it for at least four weeks. I say this because having a routine is pointless if you are not consistent in keeping your face clean and clear.

The perfect skincare routine is divided into three subtopics, and they are:


Different Skin Types

Dry Skin. In simple terms, your skin is flaky, scaly or rough.

Use a gentle and calm cleanser. The chemicals in these products would dry out your skin the more. Also, just like any skin type, stay hydrated!

Oily Skin is typically shiny, greasy, and may have big pores. Use an oil-free foaming cleanser, and rinse with plenty of warm water.

Use lightweight and oil-free moisturiser, so it does not block your pores.

Use a toner that does not irritate your skin. They help remove extra oil to keep excess shine away.

The combination is dry in some spots (cheeks), and oily in others (forehead, t-zone), find cleansing products that work for you. You do not want to take off natural oils from the dry areas and clog the oily areas.

Sensitive skin. You have sensitive skin when your skin (stings, burns, or itches) after applying makeup or product.

Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and rinse with warm water. Avoid products with alcohol, and acid. Use calming ingredients like camomile, green tea, and aloe Vera.

Normal skin is balanced, clear and not sensitive. Find skin care products that work for you.

The Guide to a Perfect Skincare Routine

As often as you can, wipe your phone, you would be surprised with the amount of dirt on your mobile phone. Practise the habit of not touching your face.

This is really important, and I have to say this again. Be patient with your routine. They say Rome was not built in a day. Give yourself an opportunity to experience a different you. For optimum results, 4-6 weeks is ideal.

Having that perfect skin is not genetic. It is all in cultivating the best habit. Find a simple routine that works best for you. It does not have to be complicated or expensive.

Lastly, listen to your skin! If your skin is reacting to a product, switch it up.

Do you know your skin type? Did you find this post useful, and what’s your skincare routine like? I think it is time to move this conversation over to the comment section! I will be waiting for you there.
