1. Know your skin type

The most important aspect of skin care is knowing your skin type. Without this information, your routine may be not only ineffective, but also damaging for your skin. For example, if you have sensitive skin, you shouldn’t use harsh exfoliating products designed for oily skin.

2. The 3 steps to flawless skin

While the products you use for each skin type may be different, the basics of taking care of your skin remain the same. Any skin care routine in the world contains three essential steps:

  1. Cleansing.
  2. Toning.
  3. Moisturizing.

However, the products you use for every step can be very different. Here is everything you need to know about the tree skin care routine steps.

1. Cleansing

Cleansing is very important for keeping your skin clear and radiant. Even the most sensitive skin should be washed twice a day, in the morning and before sleep. There is only one cleansing product that fits any skin type – it’s micellar water. However, you can’t use micellar water for every cleansing – use an alternative cleansing product at least once a day.

If you have sensitive skin, your best cleansing solution is oil – for example, argan. Normal and acne skin will feel great with a foaming liquid cleanser. For dry skin, opt for creamy-based skin cleansers or lotions, which will gently remove excess oil and dirt without drying out your skin.

2. Toning

Toning is a skin care routine stage that is often ignored by our busy lifestyles, but the truth is that regularly toning your skin gives it a necessary balance and prepares it for the next and final step of your routine. A good toner not only helps you remove anything your cleanser left on your skin, but also delivers an extra portion of nutrients for your skin.

If your skin doesn’t have any special needs, you can use a general purpose toner: for example, with vitamins, rose water, or fruit extracts. If you have oily skin, opt for a toner that contains tea tree oil. If your skin is dehydrated, supply it with extra moisture by using a toner with hyaluronic acid. For sensitive skin, look for a toner with the mildest formula and no fragrance.

3. Moisturizing

For many skin care professionals, moisturizing is the most important stage of any routine. It does exactly what it says: moisturizes and replenishes your skin. If you belong to the few lucky people with no apparent skin problems, you can confidently choose the most basic moisturizer and simply switch between a lightweight-formula product and a heavy duty moisturizer depending on the season.

For the rest of us, the variety of moisturizers available in the market is nearly endless. There is a product for every skin type, age range, and problem. Basically, if you buy a skin cream for a specific problem, there is a good chance it will also have a moisturizing effect.

That is why you should primarily look for a product that promises to solve your skin issues. If your skin is oily and prone to acne, look for a lightweight moisturizer with skin-clearing properties. If you want to prevent your skin from aging, buy an anti-aging cream. If your skin type is normal, simply find a product whose formula and fragrance you like!

3. What else can you use?

The standard skin care routine contains just three steps, but it doesn’t mean you can’t use some or all of the following products:

  • Sunscreen – whenever you go out of your home to prevent sun damage.
  • Face masks – to pamper yourself and solve specific skin problems.
  • Eye creams – if you want to get rid of things like undereye circles and puffy eyes.
  • Serums – to get even more benefits for your skin.
