there might be no better way to manage your skincare than with a single, solitary approach that works for everyone. nevertheless, for now, it's merely a dream. it is important to remember that every skin type has its own needs, so certain ingredients could harm your skin instead of improving it. you might hear about a certain ingredient from someone you know, only to break your skin out the following day after trying it.

you might have invested a lot of time and effort into finding a routine that works for you. you've come to the right place if you need help getting started. here are some tips about how to understand your skin care needs, what to look for in a good product, and how to set some skin goals.

what you need to do

a skincare routine is one of the most important things you can do if you have concerns about skin damage, including visible signs of aging. even more importantly, a good skincare routine helps lower your chances of developing skin cancer. a good routine is something you no longer think or fret about. it’s a pattern that you develop that’s beneficial to you and your skin. getting into this habit will have life-long benefits.

the type of skin and its needs

we all have different skin types and different concerns when it comes to our skin. in some cases, pigmentation may be their primary concern, while in others, redness, sensitivity, and pores may be their primary concern. you may not need what you used to in your 30s in your 50s since your skin type and needs can change over time. similar to this, a routine that works for someone in their 40s may not be suitable for someone in their 20s.

there are several types of skin, including:

  • oily
  • dry
  • combination
  • sensitive
  • acne-prone
  • rosacea-prone

taking steps towards setting your goals is the next thing adewunmi suggests. is there anything about your skin that you would like to improve?

you might want to achieve the following skin goals:

  • having a more even complexion
  • pores appear less prominent
  • glossier or brighter skin
  • improved skin hydration

as soon as you know your skin type and have your goals in mind, you can begin exploring products and ingredients that are best suited to your skin type.

putting everything together

after patch-testing some products, you decide on which one to use. once you've established a daily routine, you can get started. when you are sick, exhausted, or traveling without the products you usually use, you might not be able to keep up that routine every day. you don't have to lose out on all the benefits by missing a few days periodically. before you go to bed, you should remove your makeup and reduce the amount of sunscreen you apply every day.

an example of a routine

here's one possible routine you might want to consider:

when you wake up

apply cleanser, brightening serum or spot treatment, moisturizer, and sunscreen

before going to sleep:

cleanse, apply a serum or spot application, and moisturize

to apply products, start with the thinnest consistency and finish with the thickest. before applying makeup, you should always apply sunscreen.
