Getting started with a good skincare routine

Do you have friends that are just naturally blessed with stunning skin? Meanwhile you’re getting another acne break out or you have sensitive skin that has a flip out when ANYTHING touches it! Genetics is one thing, but having a skincare routine with the right products for your skin can make a world of difference.

Not all of us have the luxury of seeing a beauty therapist on a regular basis and if we do see them, it’s a treat as opposed to a necessity. Having your skin analysed by a professional can give you great insight into what products you should be looking for when it comes to your home skincare. There’s no point wasting money on products that aren’t suitable for your skin type or don’t address your skin concerns.

Once you have established your skins needs, start your routine with a simple cleanser, toner and moisturiser(s), preferably one for day with SPF and then a heavier more nourishing one for night. You can then add ‘targeted’ products to your routine as you feel the need.

With that said, while you get started, don't be afraid to try different ranges to see what your skin responds to best then stick with it! I hope the above suggestions help get your healthy skin journey started.
