It’s a fact that these days we are using less make-up. Our masks prevent much of our face from being seen, so putting in the effort to glam up seems almost pointless. Whether that’s a bonus or a curse for others, it leaves us with the question of how to cover up blemishes and imperfections without make-up. Take care of your skin and your health: the key to this is, of course, a good skincare routine.
Using the correct products with the correct ingredients, the right amounts, and the order of application is key to helping your skin look and feel its best. A good skincare routine will also prevent and slow aging signs, leaving your skin healthy and glowing.

Removing make-up and cleansing your skin is a must. Otherwise, leaving the product on for too long or not removing it all can clog pores which may cause acne… the exact opposite effect we’re looking for here. And yes, even if you don’t wear make-up, you still need to cleanse. Cleansing removes dirt and buildup from the day’s activities, so neglecting or skipping this step is just you essentially leaving residue on your skin that is harmful to it.
There seems to be a lot of general misconception about when to exfoliate or if it should even be done at all. Exfoliating is a key step in your routine because it rids your face of dead skin and impurities that build up over time. So yes, you always need to exfoliate. If you have dry skin, try using gentler products or reduce the frequency of how often you do it. During the colder fall and winter months, the recommended amount of time to exfoliate is twice a week.
Having a good skincare routine is only part of the necessary steps to keep your skin healthy and happy. The better you keep yourself hydrated and eat the right foods, the better your skin will look. Your body in general will also thank you for keeping it so healthy, which makes for an excellent anti-aging routine. Opt for whole foods, especially the ones that contain a good amount of water like cucumbers, watermelons, apples, etc. The recommended amount of water to drink daily is 8 glasses or more.
Once again, I will not make this a step. Moisturizing and re-hydrating your skin is so important, especially after cleansing or exfoliating. These strip your skin and can dry it out, so it is necessary to finish a routine with a moisturizing cream or serum to add hydration to your skin.
Pat them onto your face instead. Serums tend to contain higher active ingredients than moisturizers do. Ingredients to look for when choosing a product for anti-aging skincare are derivatives of Vitamin A -retinoids- and Vitamin C. These increase the collagen in your skin and act as antioxidants.
According to experts, our skin ages and loses collagen at around 20. There is even speculation that people have started to age faster in recent years. This is mainly due to pollution, sun exposure, visible light, etc. Deciding when to start using these products is not difficult; what is difficult is deciding which products to use, as there are many options.
