The Best Skin Care Routine

The Best Skin Care Routine

For a wonderful look, you should give proper care and attention to your skin. A lot of people think that beauty is only in the genes or that great-looking skin is a result of using top-quality skincare products.

But that is not the whole truth.

Being a social media influencer, I frequently talk about giving the skin the proper care it deserves. To speak the truth, it takes a lot of effort to look great in the mirror. Although I use skin-care products only from reputed brands, it is not all that I need to have great skin. What plays the most crucial role in this regard is the skincare routine. As an Instagram influencer, I have come to know while it is important to select the right products, what is even more important is the order in which you apply those products.

What Your Skin Care Routine Depends On

Having a skincare routine helps the skin stay in good condition. Every one of us is fully aware of the fact that dead skin cells are shed on a daily basis. If you plan to maintain the glow of your skin, you should develop a skincare routine, which suits your specific skin needs the best.

Factors that determine an individual’s skin routine include:

  • Type of skin
  • Quality of skincare products
  • Time of day


Different people have different types of skin. You may have normal or sensitive skin. Your skin may be dry, oily, or a combination of both. Many people have red spots or moles on their skin. There are so many variations of skin, that we can keep talking about tones and textures for hours on end. The point I am trying to make is that you should always take your skin type into account when creating an ideal skincare routine to maintain glow and naturalness.

Three Key Steps

Basically, all skincare routines can be divided into three main parts: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. You need to understand the importance of each of these steps to have your skin functioning at its best.


Our skin remains exposed to a number of pollutants. The skin collects dirt and excessive oil on its surface. Plus, there are unwanted skin cells that you need to get rid of. If pollution and dead cells are not removed, they can damage the skin and leave it looking dull. Cleansing allows you to get rid of every trace of pollutants that accumulates on the skin. It is best practice to cleanse your skin at least once a day. You can increase the frequency as per your skin type.


It is the balancing of the skin. Toning is the process of shrinking the pores on the surface of the skin. It may also mean corrections of the dark spots or discolorations of the skin. There are toners and other skincare products, which are used to balance the pH level of the skin. 


The climate impacts the skin in many ways. One of these is taking away the moisture of the skin. People with dry skin need to remain more aware of the cold and dry climate. If you plan to keep your skin looking hydrated and smooth, you need to moisturize it properly. One added benefit of this exercise is that it can also hide the lines and wrinkles on the skin. What type of moisturizer you should choose depends on the type of skin you have. For example, people with scaly skin should get a moisturizer with antioxidants or alpha hydroxy acid in it.

These three steps are a part and parcel of a great skincare routine. The ultimate goal of the routine is to maintain your skin in a way, which creates the best look with vibrance, shine, and smoothness. Having a skincare routine also allows you to see how your kin goes through changes with time. 

Apply Skin Care Products in the Right Order

As an Instagram influencer, I have come to the realization that the best skincare regimen is not the one that addresses the specific needs of your skin type, but it is also about using the skincare products in the proper order. No matter what type of skin you have, you should always start with the thinnest and finish with the thickest. This is because applying thicker products will make it difficult for the thinner products to reach the skin.

So, here is the order of consistency for skincare products:

  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Serum
  4. Moisturizer

Start your routine with cleansing, no matter whether you rinse and wash your skin once or twice a day. If you wear makeup, you should first remove the makeup and then give the skin a proper cleanse. After cleansing is done, it is time for the application of the toner. If you use a hydrating formula, the toner can be used twice a day. Next, you should apply the serum.

Trust the words of this Instagram influencer, if you plan to apply specialized eye cream, the best idea is to layer it beneath the moisturizer that you use.

Finally, it is time for the application of moisturizer. Use a lightweight moisturizing lotion in the morning. Keep the thicker cream for use at night. Also, ensure the moisturizer you use contains SPF so that you don’t have to apply sunscreen separately. It is crucial to give effective UV protection to the skin.
