Daytime skincare routine

Daytime skincare routine

A morning skincare routine is essential to maintain the unique essence that you gave your skin with your night skincare regime. Everyone wants to start the day with a fresh look because the beginning of your day defines the rest of the day. For an effective skincare regime, the right order is as important as the right products.

Step 1: Water-based cleanser

The water-based cleanser is the most critical step as this will clean all the residue and dirt stuck on your skin. It will deep clean your pores without causing any redness to your skin. 

Application:

Work the water-based cleanser into a form and then apply. After applying, please leave it on your face for two minutes and then wash it with cold water. Pat dry the damp skin with a towel. 

Step 2: Toner

Toner is the most ignored and misinterpreted product in the skincare routine. It is an essential step as it is the first layer of protection against all the radicals that might attack your skin. A right toner balances the pH of your skin and hydrates your skin rather than drying it out.

Application:

For effective use of toner, take it in your palm and press it into your skin with the help of a cotton pad. Rubbing will only irritate your skin and cause damage.

Step 3: Serum

The serum is as essential for the skin as antibodies are to fight a virus in your body. Although serums are costly, they protect you against the oxidants that your body comes in contact with throughout the day.

Application:

A little bit of serum can go a long way. Take two pumps of serum in your hand and press it in your skin, so it is evenly applied. Let your skin absorb the serum before moving on to the next step.

Step 4: Moisturizer cream or Face Mask

All types of skins need a moisturizer because there is nothing like over moisturized skin. Select a water-based as they are gentler for your skin.

Application:

Apply a thin layer of moisturizer and let it absorb.

Step 5: Protect from the Sun

The sun, while being immensely beautiful, is not always your best friend. So, it is wise to protect yourself from it.

Application:

Sunscreen is the most crucial step because, without it, all the other steps that you carried out will have no use. The UV radiation from the sun causes wrinkles or sunburns and can be a significant cause of skin cancer.

Before heading out, take a pea size of sunscreen and apply it on your face and neck, so you are protected from UV radiation.
