For some people, all they want is to have soft, flawless skin, but of course, beauty comes with a price. And the price is maintenance, which is why many women do their skincare routine before they go to sleep. Perhaps you’re thinking to start your skincare routine but is confused on where to start, well worry no further. In this article we’re going to discuss some simple skincare routine for a beginner, and not just about washing your face. Make sure that you read this article to find out more about it.
Yes, we did say that this is not about washing your face, but the first skincare routine that we can suggest is to do the double cleansing. Double cleansing means that you wash your face twice, with a different method, this is useful to remove makeup, dirt, oil and many more. How does one do this double cleansing method you ask? Usually, they clean their face with cleansing oil, which will melt all of the makeup and dirt, and wipe it off with water, and then wash off your face using your regular facial foam. Doing this will prepare your skin for your next step, which is toner.
Popular in South Korea, sheet mask can be found anywhere and even in a drugstore, and they are perfect when you want to pamper your skin. Sheet mask can moisturize and hydrate your skin, and based on the ingredient; it can brighten your skin or have anti-acne properties. Another reason why sheet mask is a perfect addition to your skincare routine is that it is affordable and excellent for travel, which means you can use it anywhere you want.
After doing your double cleanse your skin will be stripped away from the oils on your face, and this is why you need a toner. Toner will tone down the ph level on your face, leaving it fresh and hydrated, failure in keeping your face hydrated will lead to the dry and flaky skin.
If your face is extra dry, then opt for moisturizer instead as they keep your skin hydrated through the day or the night. If you have acne-prone skin, make sure to get a moisturizer that is lightweight and oil-free so it won’t clog your pores. If you’re going out for the day, you can always opt for a moisturizer that has SPF on it, so it’ll protect your face from the sun while keeping your skin moisturized.
