Your skin is your largest organ and it deserves your love and attention! A skin care routine is important because it allows you to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. This trifecta of self-care will leave you with healthy, happy skin that glows. But I know what you’re thinking—where do I even start? Relax, I’ve got you covered. In this blog post, I’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how to create a simple skin care routine that works for you. Let’s get started!

  1. Start by identifying your skin type.
    Do you have dry skin? Oily skin? Sensitive skin? Combination skin? Knowing your skin type is important because it will help you select the right products for your specific needs. If you’re not sure what your skin type is, no worries! There are plenty of guides online that can help you figure it out. Once you know your skin type, move on to step 2.
  2. Choose a cleanser based on your skin type
    If you have dry skin, look for a hydrating cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for a gentle cleanser that will remove oil and dirt without drying out your skin. And if you have sensitive skin, avoid harsh cleansers and opt for something that is fragrance-free and designed for sensitive skin types.
  3. Exfoliate once or twice a week
    Exfoliation is important because it removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. If you have dry or sensitive skin, stick to exfoliating once a week so as not to overdo it and damage your delicate skin barrier. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, exfoliating 2-3 times a week should be sufficient. Just be sure to use an oil-free product!
  4. Moisturize morning and night
    Moisturizing helps lock in hydration and prevents your skin from becoming dry and irritated. If you have dry or sensitive skin, look for a thicker cream that will provide long-lasting hydration throughout the day (and night). If you have oily or acne-prone skin, opt for a light lotion or gel that won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. And if you have normal/combo skin, congrats! You can pretty much use any type of moisturizer—just make sure to apply it morning and night for best results.
