Sticking to a skin care routine can help overcome skin problems. Moreover, taking care of your skin requires commitment and dedication. Here are all the steps you can take to establish a routine to help with skin nourishment.

Step 1: Wash Your Face Twice a Day

The ideal practice for healthy skin is to wash your face twice a day. The best time for that is in the morning and at night. Take a generous amount of face wash in your palm and massage your face with it. Afterward, gently rinse the face wash with lukewarm water. Rubbing too hard will open skin pores which may accumulate dirt over time. Using lukewarm water prevents your skin from tightening.

Step 2: Apply Toner

Rinsing the face opens up skin pores. Therefore, you must apply toner to close them. Take a few drops of your favorite toner and apply it on a cotton pad. Gently rub your face with it until the toner dissolves in your skin. If you are using an exfoliating toner – one that removes dead skin cells, use it only at night. However, you can apply hydrating toners in the morning as well.

Step 3: Apply Serum

Apply serum on your skin can soothe sensitive skin, improve wrinkles and protect your skin from radicals. According to experts, light preparation serums are best for sensitive skin and reducing skin irritation. In addition, serums can keep your skin hydrated throughout the night, so apply them before you go to bed. Finally, it’s important to remember that water-based serums go underneath the moisturizer and vice versa for oil-based serums.

Step 4: Apply Eye Cream

Since eye cream is thin, it should be applied underneath the moisturizer. Try using eye creams with roller-ball applicators and store them in the fridge to prevent puffiness. Applying eye cream before going to bed can prevent dark circles, remove signs of aging and deliver tailor-made hydration. In addition, eye creams also prepare your skin for makeup. So don’t forget to treat the most stunning part of your face!

Step 5: Use Spot Treatment

At night, your body is in repair mode. Therefore, it’s best to use spot treatment before going to bed. However, you should avoid layering acne-fighting ingredients because they tend to cause dryness and skin irritation. Instead, you should aim to keep your skin hydrated and calm at night for a glowing morning face.

Step 6: Apply Moisturizers

Moisturizers are a great way to fight acne, skin irritation, dryness, and signs of aging. Applying thick moisturizers before going to bed can give you the Kendal Jenner look in the morning. Moisturizers hydrate your skin and lock in all products you have applied. Look for a thin layered moisturizer for morning skin treatment. However, if you have dry skin, you should apply hydration cream in the morning and at night.

Step 7: AppLy Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun is more important than you think. The ultraviolet sun rays can cause skin irritation and skin cancer. Many dermatologists recommend sunscreens to prevent the sun’s harmful rays from penetrating through your skin. If your moisturizer doesn’t contain SPF, you’ll need to wear sunscreen. You’ll need to wait 20 minutes before you go out if you have applied chemical-based sunscreen. Ideally, you should look for broad-spectrum sunscreens for maximum protection.
