The Best Skincare Routine For Beginners
As we discussed, the best skincare routine for a beginner is the basic one. With that in mind, here is a 4-step skincare routine for you to jump-start your skincare journey.
Cleansing is the first step to any skincare routine and that is what your basic skincare routine will start with. It removes the dirt, debris and impurities from your skin and gets your skin ready for the following skincare products. Cleanser gets into your skin and pulls out all the unwanted stuff from it. It helps to maintain skin hygiene and keeps it healthy.
Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells, impurities and any leftover cleanser from your skin. It rejuvenates your skin and adds a glow to the skinBut, this is a step that you shouldn't do every day. 2-3 times a week is enough.
Hydrated skin is happy skin. A moisturiser helps keep your skin hydrated. Moisturisers improve skin barrier function, improve skin hydration and thus give you soft, supple and plump skin.
4. Sunscreen application
Sunscreen is one of the most important steps of skincare. The amount of damage the harmful UV of the sun can do to your skin is extreme and thus to protect your skin from it, always apply sunscreen.
