How to Start a Skincare Routine

We know you want to get into the whole skincare routine thing but let’s start by clarifying that skincare isn’t a one-size-fits-all. Just because a product worked for a friend doesn’t mean it’s what your skin needs. There are a few things you need to know or consider before getting into this and that’s what we’ll be sharing today:

Skincare isn’t a one-size-fits-all.

Knowing your skin type is key to figuring out which products would be the most beneficial. Using the wrong products can make your skin worse than improving it. Don’t buy into the hype! If you’re looking to buy a product based on a friend or an influencer’s recommendation, don’t just pay attention to how much their skin is glowing now, rather look at what type of skin they’re dealing with. That should give you a more reliable indicator on how well the product will work for you.

Know your Skin Type

No matter how many positive reviews a product has online, it’s important that you know your skin type before adding to cart.

  • Combination: Surprise, surprise. This is a combination of dry and oily skin. So, if your T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) are oily and your cheeks are dry, your quiz result may say combination.
  • Dry: If your skin is flaky, rough and drinks up the moisturiser, you might take the skin type quiz and find you have dry skin.
  • Sensitive: Easily irritated skin—especially when you interact with new products or environments—is an indicator of sensitive skin.

You can get a general idea of what your skin type is by taking this quiz from askthescientists.com .

If you’re not 100 percent sure what skin type you have, it’s worth a trip to the dermatologist to confirm. Once you understand your skin type, you can start selecting products with more precision.
