This guide will give you step by step instructions for both morning and evening skincare routines (it is best to do both if possible) that you can incorporate into your daily life without much hassle.
Morning Skincare Regimen:
Your morning skincare routine allows you to remove any and all accumulate dirt and greasy from the night before. This process will supply you with a fresh face to take on the chaotic day with.
Step One: Cleaning
This step can vary depending on the different seasons or climates you are in, so you should adapt to the needs of your skin at any given time. When the dirt and dead skin accumulated on the face is thicker or if the face feels greasy, it is necessary to use a stronger facial cleanser for a deeper clean. On the other hand, when the facial skin seems dry or is even peeling, it is better to choose a mild cleansing product. Generally speaking, in the morning you can use an amino acid facial cleanser in the mornings (you will use a soap-based cleanser in the evenings). But everyone’s skin is different, so you should be sure to pick a cleanser that works for the conditions of your skin. If you ever feel uncomfortable, irritated, or in pain after using a cleanser, you should stop and choose a different one.
Step Two: Toner
After cleaning your face, you should dry it off, and apply a toner to maintain a correct pH balance on the surface of your skin. Just like cleansers, you should choose the right toner based on the quality and conditions of your skin. A soft and convergent toner can make the skin tight and smooth. People with sensitive skin should use medicinal toner to avoid an allergic or adverse reaction. People with oily skin should choose a more refreshing toner in the summer and a moisturizing toner in the winter. Finally, people with dry skin should use a moisturizing toner in both the winter and summer.
Keep in mind that when you use toner, you cannot just put it onto your hand and directly wipe it onto your face. The correct way to use a toner is to wrap a cotton pad around your finger, put the toner onto the pad, and gently tap it into both the face and neck in the direction of the skin texture. Start with the top of our head and then move downwards, paying extra attention to the t-zone areas. If you have any particularly dry parts of your face, you should apply a larger amount of toner there.
Step Three: Lotion and Creams
During the day, the face is exposed to the harsh rays of the sun, so you should be sure to apply an SPF lotion or cream every single day. If you have oily skin, you can use an emulsion (lightweight) moisturizer, but if you have dry skin, you can pick something more moisturizing. You can also cycle between the two throughout the seasons.
Step Four: Isolation Cream
An isolation cream is a cream that you apply to certain areas of the face (such as under your eyes) to protect them from harmful substances and lighten them. Throughout the day, computer screens, ultraviolet light, and dust can darken your complexion. And an isolation cream will protect your skin from these influences.
Evening Skincare Regimen
Throughout the day, the skin becomes tired, weak, and dirty. So it is extremely important to carefully remove all makeup and dirt before going to bed. This routine will keep your skin younger and healthier longer.
Step One: Remove Makeup and Clean Thoroughly
After a busy day, your skin can be clogged up by heavy makeup, dust, and grease. So it must be thoroughly cleaned at night with a facial cleanser. Before washing your face, remove all makeup with a makeup removal product such as a wipe or liquid wash. Afterward, use a soap-based facial cleanser to clean the entire face. During this process, you can use an exfoliating product to gently massage and remove horniness and dead skin while accelerating blood circulation through the face.
Step Two: Toner
After washing your face, use a toner to replenish moisture. The same rules for picking a toner in the morning apply for picking a toner in the evening. The main function of the toner is to ensure cleanliness, restore pH balance, and regulate the cuticular layer.
Step 3: Apply Mask
Using a night mask can both allow for a deeper clean and has a moisturizing and anti-aging effect. In addition, there are brands of masks that have strong antioxidant components. Masks should usually be applied for fifteen to thirty minutes (with the exception of sleep masks.)
Step Four: Apply Eye Cream
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest part of the human skin and is also the most frequently moving part of the skin, making it the most pulled area. Because of this, it is a place that easily developers wrinkles. No one wants to have annoying wrinkles around their eyes. Using an eye cream every night and gently massaging from the corner of the inner eye to the side of the eye.
Step Five: Apply Night Cream
If you have healthy skin, a night cream may be unnecessary. But if the skin feels dry, it is recommended for you to use a moisturizing night cream. The oil-soluble components in many night creams make it dissolvable into the sebum of your pores while spreading rapidly into the deeper layers of the skin. After this step, the night skincare regimen is completed. So you can get a good night’s rest and let the skin be completely repaired throughout the night.
