How to Build your Own Skin Care Regime

It’s never too late or too early to start a skincare regime. No matter your age or current skin condition, investing in some quality products, and spending a little time in the mornings and before bed concentrating on your skin, will have huge benefits on how your skin looks and feels. Having a skincare routine is one thing, having the right skincare routine is quite another.

With so many skincare products on the market, it can be intimating trying to find the right products for your skin type. So if you don’t know your toner from your moisturiser then please read on.

The Three main Steps of Skin Care

Let’s keep it simple, a skincare regime can be broken down into three distinctive steps:

 

Cleansing – This is the process of washing your skin

Toning – Balancing your Skin

Moisturising ­– This is concerned with softening and hydrating your skin

 

The goal of a skincare regime is to keep your complexion healthy and looking its very best. Individuals may also have certain aspects of their skin they want to work on e.g. making skin look less tired or feel less dry. The above three steps aren’t about striving for perfection rather they help to fortify and protect your skin for years to come. It's important to remember that a skincare routine isn't an instant fix. You can address problem areas but these problems won’t disappear overnight.

Rather it takes time and commitment and consistency to achieve the skin results you’re striving for. So make sure you follow your regime as rigorously as possible.

Now that you’re committed to following a regular skincare regime, let’s look at the three basic steps in more detail and make some product recommendations.

Cleansing

The first and most basic step in any skincare routine is washing your face. Every day our skin is exposed to environmental pollutants that can undermine the health of our skin. Most skincare experts recommend washing your face at least twice a day to avoid skin dullness, clogged pores and breakouts.

The key to a good facial cleanser is a product that cleans your face without stripping your skin’s essential oils.

At their most basic level, a moisturiser hydrates and softens skin. A good moisturiser will also protect the skin's natural protective oils. As we age it becomes more and more important to moisturise as our skin loses the ability to retain moisture.
