Using skincare that is not formulated for your skin type can cause damage to your skin. They are also few other things that can do the same, for instance, excessive exfoliation, not using sunscreen or never moisturise. Well, to fix your skin you must start with the right skincare routine. Here we break down a skincare regimen for damaged skin that you can follow to help you achieve your dream skin in no time.
AM Skincare Routine
Step 01: Cleanse
Start by cleansing your skin with a gentle cleanser such as CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser. This helps rid your skin of dirt, oil and sweat without stripping it further of its natural hydration. It effectively cleanses skin while replenishing moisture for beautifully soft and smooth skin.
Step 02: Toner
Toners help add that extra bit of hydration and prep your skin for the skincare products to follow. Hence, you should never skip this step.
Step 03: Serum
Thanks to potent ingredients in serums, they’re a great way to tackle a number of skin issues. They absorb quickly into your skin, making them an excellent next step after cleansing. There are many different types of serums, each with a unique purpose and ingredients. Some serums help to brighten your skin or reduce blemishes, while others focus on boosting hydration or fighting the signs of aging.
Step 04: Moisturise
Moisturiser is a saviour for dry skin, and it is that hero product that helps to seal in the benefits of your toner and serum. This is one step that you shouldn’t skip, especially if you have dry skin. Pick a moisturising formula such as CeraVe Moisturising Lotion. It is a dual-action pimple cream that targets acne prone & congested skin. Even though its main purpose is to treat acne, but it has an amazing moisturiser effect. It is also great for sensitive skin. It helps repair the damaged skin barrier and at the same time helps reduce scars.
Step 05: Sunscreen
The last step in your AM skincare routine is always a sunscreen. Whether or not your moisturiser has SPF, sunscreen is a must. You can try Biore UV Watery Essence SPF50 PA++++.
PM Skincare Routine
Your night skincare routine is extremely crucial because while you sleep is when maximum skin repair happens. Hence, applying the right products to your skin at bedtime will help your skin heal quicker and stay healthier.
Step 01: Makeup removal
To start off, always thoroughly cleanse your skin, you can use Pixi Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover to help!
Step 02: Cleanse
Cleaning your face does not end with just makeup removal, you need to follow it up with a foaming face wash like CeraVe Foaming Facial Wash.
Step 03: Toner
It is now time for a toner. Always stick to choose a well-formulated, alcohol-free toner to balance your skin and keep it hydrated it.
Step 04: Serum
Use serum to deeply hydrate and nourish your skin.
Step 05: Night cream
Wait a few minutes after applying the facial oil to allow it to sink into your skin. Follow this up with a hydrating night cream or moisturiser to help seal in the benefits of the previous skincare products and provide added moisture and nourishment to your dry skin. Choose night cream that has Retinol as one of its active ingredients.
Step 06: Eye cream
Eye cream should be a part of every girl’s skincare routine as it provides the thin skin around your eyes with targeted treatment, but it’s especially needed for those with dry skin. The eye cream will help hydrate the eye area, as well as prevent dark circles and wrinkles. Try The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. It refreshes tired-looking eyes, reduces dark circles, and brightens the under-eye area too.
