How to Find Your Skincare Priorities and build the perfect skincare routine

With an endless variety of skincare products to choose from, building your skincare routine can feel daunting and overwhelming. Do I have oily or combination skin? Should I use a foaming cleanser or cream? Do I need both a facial essence and a face serum? Should I get a pore-minimizing day cream or a firming gel? It’s easy to get overwhelmed!

With an endless variety of skincare products to choose from, building your skincare routine can feel daunting and overwhelming. Do I have oily or combination skin? Should I use a foaming cleanser or cream? Do I need both a facial essence and a face serum? Should I get a pore-minimizing day cream or a firming gel? It’s easy to get overwhelmed!

To understand better how your skincare works, take, for instance, a plant. You cannot raise a cactus plant the same way you would a fern and expect the same results. Each plant is different and will require different amounts of water, sunlight, and nutrients, at different times of the day. Most importantly, you have to determine what type of plant it is first in order to determine its needs and care routine. The same thing goes for skincare. We have to determine what our skin’s needs, our skin type, and our skin concerns are before choosing the right skincare products. After all, expert skincare starts with expert analysis.
