The Importance of Setting Up a Great Skincare Routine

Getting the essential skincare routine established early on in life is important, as it sets you up for great skin for life!  Here’s my top tips for getting your skincare routine right for all ages.

Step 1: cleansing:  it is important that you remove all makeup and any impurities in the skin before you go to bed at night.  This prevent you from developing spots and pimples which can be caused by clogged pores.  If you have dry skin, choose a creamy or oil based cleanser.  If you have oilier skin, you can choose foaming face wash or oil cleanser which will not strip too much oil out.

Step 2: tone: this step helps to remove any last traces of makeup or cleanser and prepares your skin for moisturising and further treatment.  Grat for oily skin to help reduce oiliness and potential shine.

Step 3: serum or treatment: now is the time to add a skin treatment like a deeply moisturising serum or treatment like a spot treatment, or radiance cream.

Step 4: moisturise:  this is an essential step for all skin types, not just dry skin!  Even oily skin needs moisture.  A good moisturiser will protect against the signs of aging as well as environmental damage from the sun and pollutants.
