How to Maintain a Daily Skincare Routine 


Hello, beautiful readers!

Finding a skincare routine that works for you can seem challenging. Underlying most daily routines are 5 basic steps. I use each step in my daily routine, and adapt it based on my sensitive, acne-prone skin.

Step 1 – Cleanse 

Cleansing the skin removes excess dirt and oil. These components contribute to breakouts. Cleansing the skin both morning and night keeps your pores clear. I cleanse in the morning with a gentle exfoliator. I remove makeup and cleanse at night with a makeup-remover from Clinique. 

Step 2 – Toner

Toner removes any leftover residue after cleansing. Using toner gives the skin an extra cleansing effect. This minimizes the appearance of pores and preps your skin to absorb moisture. Toner is most effective when applied to damp skin. 

Step 3 – Exfoliate 

Exfoliating removes excess skin cells that build up on the skin’s surface. This step is crucial if you are experiencing acne or blackheads. You should exfoliate 1-3 times per week, depending on the specific needs of your skin. 

Step 4 – Moisturize

This is a crucial step to keep the skin soft and supple. Moisturizing adds an extra layer of protection to skin. Choose a product best-suited for your skin type, then massage it into the skin using an upward motion. You should let the moisturizer sit to allow it to absorb into skin.

Step 5 – Apply sunscreen

The sun is damaging to the skin. Using a product containing SPF protects your skin from UV rays. You should apply a sunscreen with SPF 15 (or higher) to the skin to protect it.

  10. I find it funny when these posts say to use sunscreen. Where I’m from we generally only see the sun for a couple of weeks over summer….if we are lucky.
