All of us aspire to have Beyonce’s level of flawless I-woke-up-like-this skin.
Unfortunately, not all of us have a whole team’s worth of dermatologists at our beck and call to achieve the same level of goddesshood.
Yet, there are simple ways and habits that you can add to your routine that can easily elevate your skin glow to the next level.
If this is your first time creating a skin safe regimen, no worries. You’ve come to the right place. Keep on reading for our full breakdown of the key ways you can refine or even create your skincare routine from scratch.
Skin Safe Essentials 101: The Basics
Before we start our deeper dive into more complex ideas and advice, let’s make sure you’ve got the foundation up and functioning.
Start by ensuring that you’re getting enough water, sleep, and so the basic step of cleansing your face either once a day or twice a day, if your skin is a bit on the oilier side.
This brings us to the second most important category: knowing (and understanding) your skin.
After cleansing your skin in the morning, wait around 10 minutes, then observe how your skin looks.
Is it already itchy due to dryness? Or is it glistening like a donut already, which makes it rather oily in nature?
Or maybe, it looks a bit irritated for no specific reason, which can be a sign of sensitivity in your skin.
Basically, you’ll want to nail down the basic information about your skin and its needs to create the right skincare routine that will give you the best results.
Evaluate Your Budget
This is the point where you take a look at your financials. You’ll want to see how much money you can allocate to your skincare routine and the right roundup of products.
If you have the opportunity to see a dermatologist or an esthetician, you can ask them about which products are the best for you, and see if that would fit your budget.
If not, there are always more budget-friendly alternatives.
Don’t Overdo It
We know how excited you are to start your new skincare routine, especially after you’ve checked out this skincare routine guide for the best well-rounded results.
However, we urge you to not overdo it, especially with using actives and other substances that can be irritating.
For instance, you can go to town using SPF in the morning, as well as adding a moisturizing toner. On the other hand, you don’t want to over-exfoliate your skin.
Moreover, the same rule applies to cleansing your face. Don’t overdo it, twice a day, if you feel like you need it is more than enough.
