The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide For Skin Care

A healthy and shiny skin simply isn’t a matter of genes and DNA but also your daily habits and your daily routine. If you have had a bad or stressful day/week, then it’s signs would first appear on your skin, which is why skin care is emphasized by everyone, including celebrities and dermatologists. It is quite difficult to maintain good skin, especially as a teenager, because puberty wreaks havoc on your body and because of your hormones, you might start suffering from acne, regular breakouts, changes in skin type, and patches. 


All skincare routines are personal, and with so many skincare products at your fingertips, starting your own regimen from scratch can seem daunting. We have taken out some of the guesswork from the self-care process and built the ultimate skincare routine that is perfect for newbies and is easy to stick to. Hopefully, here you’ll find answers to all your skincare questions before you start dabbing products on your face.

So what are the basic steps of a skin-care routine?

There are four basic steps of a skincare routine:

  • Toning 
  • Moisturizing 
  • Sunscreen

Step 1: Cleansing 

Washing your face is not only an essential step for your skin routine but also the most basic step of any routine. It is important to wash all environmental pollutants, dirt, and other debris off the surface of your skin. If these impurities stay on the skin, they combine with your body oil and can clog your pores and sauce pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Dermatologists suggest cleaning your face at least twice a day, morning and night, to avoid clogging your pores and reduce the risks of acne. You can also use exfoliating scrubs once a week to deeply cleanse your face. For gentle cleansing, you can use CeraVe Hydrating Cream to Foam Cleanser. 

Step 2: Toning 

Toners are liquid supplements that deliver an extra shot of nutrients, helping the other products in your regimen to absorb better while still balancing your complexion. Toner can be optional; some people replace this step with serums that add another layer of skin replenishment. Whether you choose to use toner or serums, you should use products whose formulas are rich in antioxidants and help to fight environmental stressors and hydrate your skin. 

Step 3: Moisturizer

Moisturizers assist in preventing water loss through the outer layer of your skin and soften the skin. Doctors recommend applying moisturizers all year round for all skin types. You can also use suitable day and night creams and eye creams to prevent general puffiness, dryness, and hyperpigmentation and protect your skin from environmental aggressors. 

Step 4: Sunscreen 

Daily and consistent use of sunscreen can prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles and the textural imperfections that take place on our faces over time. Experts recommend using sunscreens with SPF 50, which provide a broad spectrum of UVA/ UVB protection while promoting natural radiance and an even skin tone.
