A good skincare routine is what keeps your complexion as clear, bright, and even as possible. It also helps stave off long-term skin problems like fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. Maintaining a consistent, effective skincare routine is a vital part of preserving your skin’s short and long-term health and appearance.
1. Give Your Skin A Break
If you’ve been overloading your skin with too much exfoliation, excessive moisturizer, or too many harsh products, chances are your skin is irritated and stripped of its natural oils. You need to give it a break to restore itself before you start a more simplified routine.
Go one to two weeks without any deep exfoliation, face masks, or other non-essentials. Use only gentle skin care products you can’t go without–like moisturizer and facial cleanser–and use them sparingly. If you don’t have extremely dry skin, substitute a lightweight toner for moisturizer to give your skin a chance to replenish its natural oils.
2. Pick and Choose The Right Routine
Stop spending half your paycheck on "miracle" treatments, "cosmetic procedures" from overpricedbrands.
Good skincare products do have a transformative effect on your skin than the brands that have cheaper ingredients. Which skincare products are actually worth your money depends on your unique skin type and common skin problems.
Choose your most indulgent products through trial and error. Find something that works and ease it into your morning routine.
3. Use Fewer Products
Many women get so frustrated with frequent breakouts or visible signs of aging that they resort to piling on any and every skincare product that promises to solve their skin woes.
Chances are, half the skincare products in your medicine cabinet aren’t actually helping your skin as much as you think they are. Using skin care products that don’t actually improve your skin does nothing but waste your time and money. Try paring your skincare routine down to only the essential products (moisturizer, one facial cleanser, a single toner or serum, etc.). Pay attention to whether or not you notice a change in your skin without the non-essential products you cut out.
You shouldn’t be spending more than ten minutes on your skincare routine on an everyday basis. Dedicating thirty minutes to an hour of time to really pampering your skin helps you save time in your daily routine.
