What is the Daily Skin Care Routine?

A daily skin care routine should have the essential products needed to keep your skin clean and protect it from the harmful elements in our environment and again, keep it simple. A good cleanser, a refreshing toner, a soothing moisturizer, and a protective sunscreen are all what you need to ensure the health of your skin.
       1.  Cleanser
Choosing a good cleanser is important as cleanser is needed to wash off impurities, dirt, and dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and you need to choose according to your skin type. With the right cleanser, you will feel your skin smooth without any tighten feeling.
       2.  Toner
Toner is considered as one of the basic skin care product essential for a daily skin care routine although it is debatable. Using a toner will purge out the dirt, impurities, blackhead, and whitehead trapped inside the pores. Toner is also beneficial as you prepare your skin for moisturizing.
       3.  Serum
Serum is one best kept secret in basic beauty regime and it’s for a good reason; serum is a high concentrated liquid beauty that designed to nourish your skin.

Moisturizer is a definite must–have for your skin care steps. Moisturizer serves as a protection against humidity and dirt as well as keeping your skin moisturized and hydrated at the same time. Again, it is important that you pick a moisturizer according to your skin type and make sure it’s non–comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores).
5.  Sunscreen
Sunscreen should also be regarded as one of the essential item for your basic skin care steps. Sunscreen serves to protect your skin from harmful sun rays that are damaging to your skin and as the environment is getting dangerous, using a sunscreen is all the more necessary. Ideally, choose a sunscreen with SPF higher than 25.

Steps to Take Care of Your Face

Here’s how to take care of your face with basic skin care steps;
  • Start your day by washing your face with a cleanser suitable for your skin. Lather the right amount and rub onto your face in circular motion to slough off dirt and dead skin cells from your face
  • Pour a small amount of toner to a cotton pad/ball. Apply gently on the surface of your skin. If you have blackhead – prone skin, pressed gently on the affected area to dissolve the tapped dirt and rub away. Let the toner dries up before moisturizing your face
  • Pour a drop of serum to your fingertip and lightly rub it into your skin until fully absorbed
  • Apply appropriate amount of moisturizer onto your face and rub it in circular motion to let the moisturizer absorbed into your skin. Let it ‘settle’ for a few moments
  • Rub a right amount of sunscreen onto your skin until it’s absorbed thoroughly. Wait for 20 minutes before you go out to ensure the protective of your sunscreen is effective
