My Daily Skincare Routine

In this blog, I would like to present to you my daily skincare routine which I follow every morning and night. I mastered this full routine in recent years by learning from different people whom I was so impressed by their skincare regimen and the way they maintained their skin. This might seem like a lot of work at first, but rest assured that once you get into the habit of it, it should not take more than 5 minutes and, it will become as habitual as brushing your teeth!

Step 1 - Cleanser

Why is it important?

The cleanser helps remove oil and dirt that accumulate on the skin during the day.

How do I use it?

First, I wash my face with water, then I ,gently, massage a small amount of the cleanser on my face and neck and rinse it with warm water and dry my face off with a towel.

Step 2 - Toner

Why is it important?

Toner helps remove any remaining oils, dust and impurities on the skin after using the cleanser and balance the pH level of the skin.

How do I use it?

Following the cleanser I pour 2-3 drops of toner on cotton pad and gently pat it into my skin across my face and neck.

Step 3 - Essence

Why is it important?

The cleanser and toner leave your skin clean but dry! Hence, the essence hydrates the skin and prepares it to better absorb the moisturizer.

 How do I use it?

I pour 3-4 drops of the essence on the palm of my hand, rub both hands together and then gently pat both hands on my face, forehead and neck.

Step 4 - Serum

Why is it important?

Serum is designed to deliver antioxidant ingredients including vitamins A, C and E. It can be either as gel or water based and it helps hydrate and serves as anti-aging that fights wrinkles and pigmentation

How do I use it?

I pump two drops of serum and then gently massage it on to my face, forehead and neck.

Step 5 - Eye Cream

Why is it important?

Eye cream helps eliminate puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes where the skin is thinner.

How do I use it?

I gently apply small amount of eye cream underneath the eyes and then use two fingers to gently pat the cream round the orbit of my eyes.

Step 6 - Moisturizer

Why is it important?

The moisturizer helps keep the skin hydrated and "locks in" all the other great materials applied earlier!

How do I use it?

Using one finger I apply a small amount of the moisturizer on my cheeks, forehead and neck and gently massage into the skin.

Step 7 - Sunscreen/SPF

Why is it important?

This is probably the most important step of all. SPF helps protect the skin from being over exposed to the sun which may lead to rapid aging of the skin, the appearance of sun spots and even skin cancer.

How do I use it?

After applying the moisturizer and before leaving the house I apply the SPF on my face, forehead and neck. During the day I make sure to reapply as needed.
