Building a skincare routine can be a daunting experience only because there are so many products out there. Luckily, once you know the basics it isn’t as difficult. The first and most important step in a skincare routine would be to wash your face. While washing your face you can use any cleanser that fits your skin type. If you are wearing makeup, make sure to wash your face thoroughly. Once you have a clean face, you can start off with the next steps. This brings us to the products you will use in your skincare routine.

After washing your face with a cleaner, you will need a toner. Toners allow you to remove dead skins and dirt that your cleaners may not have gotten. Next, you will need a serum. It is essential to use serums in the morning as it helps protect your skin from anything you may come across during the day. Now the next step or product is optional, this would be eye cream. Lastly, you should end your skincare routine by applying sunscreen. Remember that you should apply sunscreen every day even during the winter months.
