Your skincare routine needs a glow-up if you are not following these steps Step 1: Cleanser Wash away all the dirt from your skin Step 2: Toner Dab a toner to prep your face and balance your skin’s pH levels after cleansing Step 3: Serum This step is critical because a serum helps you achieve your skin goals by treating concerns, like dullness, pigmentation, open pores and fine lines. Consider your skin type before you try an active that works for you: 1. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides: Nourish dry skin 2. Salicylic acid, niacinamide and zinc: Fight excess sebum in oily skin 3. Hyaluronic acid with antioxidants: Hydrate combination skin 4. Salicylic acid and niacinamide: Keeping acne-prone skin calm Step 4: Moisturiser Gently massage your skin with a moisturiser that will provide hydration. When picking a formula, keep in mind your healthy skin goals. We would recommend retinol or niacinamide if you want lightweight formulas and to reduce wrinkles, creams with SPF for sun protection, ceramides and hyaluronic acid for hydration. Step 5: Sunscreen Make sure to apply some protection to your skin with a SPF 50 sunscreen. P.S.: Always keep in mind the three-finger rule so make sure you are applying enough sunscreen.
