5 Steps to Building Your Skincare Routine
If you’ve ever searched YouTube for “skincare routine,” you’ll quickly learn that there is no shortage of information on this subject. In fact, you’ll find countless men, women and children waiting to share their routines, regimens, products or lack thereof, that have given them the complexion of their dreams. The problem? They all contradict each other. That’s why we’ve put together the basics you need to know to build a skincare routine perfectly unique– just like you.
Identify Your Skin Type
If you can take one thing away from the differing opinions the internet offers on skincare it’s this– one size definitely does not “fit all.” In fact, one size does not even always fit you. For example, you may have had combination skin in high school, but that doesn’t mean that you’re married to products targeting combination skin users. Over time, your skin grows, evolves and matures, and sometimes, your skin type alters in that process. To be certain you’re using the proper products that your skin’s craving, visit Rejuvenation Clinic to have one of our licensed estheticians evaluate your needs.
Three Main Steps
Think of your skincare routine as three steps: cleansing, toning and moisturizing. A cleanser removes makeup, dirt and pollution that’s found a home on your face throughout the day. A toner balances your skin’s pH levels while removing anything missed in step one, and finally, moisturizer, hydrates and softens your skin for that fresh-faced glow we all envy. Don’t have these in your medicine-cabinet-turned-beauty-arsenal? Don’t worry. Our spa is always stocked with a carefully-curated selection of skincare perfect for any skin type.
If you’ve been desperately searching for the fountain of youth, let us let you in on a secret– it’s in a bottle. SPF protects your skin from sun damage such as brown spots, hyperpigmentation, freckles, wrinkles and blotchiness. If that isn’t enough to scare you into slathering yourself with sun protection, we’ll leave you with the most important point– it prevents skin cancer.
Consistency is Key
Although skincare has come a long way since the 1980’s tear-inducing astringents, there’s still no such thing as an overnight fix. Be patient and try to keep to a regimen for at least two months to notice a difference.
