The perfect skincare regimen can be a daunting thought. With the multiple products that sit on your bathroom counter, it can be confusing to know where to start. And with the Korean (K-beauty) skin method coming out with a 10-step daily skincare routine, all the ‘keywords’ like toners, serums, mists, and facial oils can seem like a complicated task. You begin asking all sorts of questions such as: Do I really need serums? Should I be adding a mask? How do I layer products? And retinol, I can’t forget the retinol!! Next thing you know you have a counter full of products and not a clue where to start.
Let’s commence with a simple fact; although over time science has improved skincare products, there is still no instant fix. Great skin requires commitment and the key to any great routine is maintenance, persistence, and the correct, quality ingredients. Your skin’s needs will shift and change with the seasons, lifestyle changes, and the natural aging process. This means that you must begin with understanding your skin’s type and conditions and adapting your at-home regimen when necessary. To learn about your skin, a proper analysis and skin consultation with a knowledgeable skin care specialist will be insightful. The right skin care professional can even help you to decipher and break down the confusing ingredient list in your products, ensuring that they are what you truly need to take your skin towards its goals.
Now where to start? The basics! Every routine should include the bare minimum of these 4 basics: cleanser, exfoliator, moisturizer, and sun protection. With these 4 products, you’re now a beginner, entering the wonderful world of glowing skin. This is a great start and an exciting place to be. But let’s advance to the perfect product regimen. This ultimate routine will get you the best skin of your life and get people asking what you’re doing to cause the glow radiating from your complexion. It’s that tiny jump from beginner that propels you to become an at-home skin expert.
How do you become a skin expert? By adding the ‘perfecting’ steps into your regimen; taking the daily basic routine of 4 products to 8-10 daily steps including cleanser, toner, exfoliator, eye cream, serum, moisturizer, and sun protection. Night products may include masks, retinols, night creams, and any other products that may cause skin sensitivity when exposed to sunlight. The daytime skincare products prevent, nourish, and protect the skin while the nighttime products repair and rejuvenate.
A trip to a great medical spa will help you to know the exact ingredients that are right for your skin, let you know when and how often you should be exfoliating, lifestyle changes to heighten your skin’s health, and additional skin enhancing technologies that can be added to your at-home regimen. When it comes to skincare, one glove never fits all.
