Before you head off and buy a few products, you need to know that your skincare routine will depend on your skin texture. You may have heard of words like oily, combination, or dry. Those are all types of skin textures. However, if you don’t know what your skin texture is, you can always apply your products in order from thinnest to thickest. This is because thin products won’t be able to reach your skin through thicker products. Now, regardless of how long your skincare routine is or how many products you use. The order in which you use them is most important. Just remember these steps to make it easier on you. First, you’ll clean the skin, tone, apply serums, seal in with moisturizer, and lastly apply SPF. See, it’s not as hard as you may think. When cleaning your skin, make sure to use a cleaner to get rid of any stubborn dirt.

Toner isn’t always a must but if you want to use one, only use a few drops before applying anything else to your skin. When using toners, try to avoid exfoliating toners. Serums should consist of antioxidants such as vitamin C. Try to always apply this in the morning because it can protect your skin throughout the day. It may not seem like it but moisturizer is an important element to any skincare routine. Applying a moisturizer helps lock in everything you have applied to your skin. It also helps hydrate your skin. Lastly, you have to apply sunscreen, even in winter, the sun can still damage your skin and face.
