Nowadays, a lot of people on the internet talk about their skincare routines and miraculous skincare products that are supposed to solve all problems. But as a beginner, it can be challenging to create a routine similar to your favorite influencer's skincare regimen. We understand that it can be overwhelming and often difficult to start with skincare. That's why we've created a guide for you all about the perfect skincare routine, step by step. We will discuss the basic steps that make up a complete skincare routine for beginners. So, if you don't know where to start and how to find your skincare routine, keep reading to learn more.

The Basic Steps in a Complete Skincare Routine

There's no rule for how your skincare routine should look, but there are some crucial steps that everyone should have in their routine. However, there are only three steps, so don't worry.

  1. Cleansing - the First Step Toward Radiant Skin
    The first step in a perfect skincare routine for all skin types is cleansing. Some people think that washing their face with water alone is sufficient. Unfortunately, it's not. Throughout the day, oils, dirt, products, and free radicals accumulate in your pores, and water cannot clean your face well enough. As a result, your pores can become clogged, leading to pimples, uneven skin texture, and a range of other problems.

So, to maintain a smooth and fresh complexion, it's essential to cleanse your skin both morning and night. Our tip is to use a gentle cleanser that is not drying.

  1. Moisturizing - an Essential Part of a Perfect Skincare Routine Next step - moisturizing!
    Moisturizing is a step that all different skin types need in their skincare routine. Whether your skin is dry, oily, normal, or combination, it requires moisture. Therefore, you need to invest in a facial cream that works for you. Under Your Skin recently launched a cream suitable for all skin types, especially for those who want to switch to natural products. The Detox Face Cream combines Swedish oat extract, glycoin, and almond oil to relieve inflammation and soothe the skin. It is made in Sweden and 100% natural. If you want additional moisture, particularly at night when the skin recovers the most, we recommend adding Under Your Skin's Natural Glow Face Oil.

Get to know your skin type and then find products that suit your skin. It's essential to moisturize your skin to prevent dehydration and protect it from external factors. If you want to create a simple skincare routine with only the necessary products, a good moisturizer is one of the three mandatory steps. Don't forget to apply your facial cream morning and evening after cleansing.

  1. Sun Protection - the Most Important Step in a Daily Skincare Routine
    Fall is approaching, but that doesn't mean you can stop using sun protection! If you want to take care of your skin properly and use all the necessary products, you need to continue protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays even during the colder months. All skin types need protection from UVA and UVB rays, which can cause sunspots, hyperpigmentation, inflammation, dry skin, and increase the risk of skin cancer. The last and most crucial step in the perfect skincare routine is SPF. We recommend using a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

If you don't want to add other products to your skincare routine, these three steps are all you need. But if you want to give your skin a little extra love, keep reading to learn about some additional steps.

Extra Products for Extra Care

    • Facial Toner - Restore Your Skin's pH Balance
      Is using a facial toner necessary? No, it's not mandatory. But a facial toner or toner is an extra step you can add to your skincare routine to restore your skin's natural pH balance after cleansing. It can also have a soothing and moisturizing effect. Its purpose is to prepare your skin for the other skincare products. So, if you want to find your perfect skincare routine and experiment with different products, you can give facial toner a chance and see if your skin appreciates it.

  • Facial Serum - Find a Serum Tailored to Your Skin's Needs
    Serums are products that contain active ingredients and are designed to address various skin problems. Under Your Skin has a serum - the Detox Face Serum - suitable for all skin types, containing powerful thistle stem cell extract that evens out the skin tone, moisturizes, and protects the skin. The serum also fights signs of aging without questionable chemicals. So, if you want to supplement your skincare routine and give your skin a little extra care while using products that can improve your skin's appearance, serum is something you need to look for.

It's essential to determine your skin type - whether you have dry or dehydrated skin, oily skin, normal, or combination skin - and choose a suitable serum accordingly. Find one or more serums that suit your skin's needs, and you will quickly notice visible results. The order of your skincare routine is essential, so when do you use serum? After cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing.

  • Facial Oil - Not Just for People with Dry Skin
    Facial oil is a product that people with dry skin tend to prefer. But that doesn't mean you can't use facial oil in your skincare routine if you have oily, normal, or combination skin. Everyone can use facial oil to lock in moisture and strengthen the skin's barrier. Moreover, oils deeply moisturize the skin and give your face an incredible glow. If you decide it's time to start using a facial oil, apply it after your moisturizer, which means it's the last step in your routine. However, in your morning skincare routine, apply the oil before sunscreen.

  • Exfoliation and Face Masks - Self-Care Favorites
    Once or twice a week, you can take some time for self-care and relaxation. Then, you can treat yourself to two extra products in your skincare routine - exfoliation and face masks. Both products will give you a natural glow, a smoother skin tone, and create a luxurious spa experience at home.

Exfoliation helps you remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, even out your skin tone, add a glow, and renew skin cells. Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Face masks can work as a peel or provide a moisture boost, depending on the mask you choose. There is a wide range of different masks you can try, so you can experiment a bit and find masks that work for you and your skin.
