Posted by Futureproof Inc on

Is there a correct order for skincare? For those of us who rely on natural skincare products to deliver fast-acting, long-lasting results, the answer is a resounding yes! The steps of applying skincare are essential to achieve the best possible outcome. As a wise consumer, you want the greatest return on your investment. And who better to invest in than yourself? 

When it comes to skincare routine steps, less is more. The fewer products you use, the better. There’s nothing wrong with adding products to a natural skincare routine, but all skin routines should include some form of cleanser, mosturizer, and sun protection.These 3 steps are necessary for essential skincare maintenance. Top it all off with some Satya, and you’re good to go!

Here’s how to build a skincare routine and make the most of your products.

Skincare Routine Steps

Basic Skincare Guide

  1. Cleanser – The purpose of a skincare cleanser is to eliminate the build-up of grime and residue on your skin. Before applying a cleanser, make sure to properly remove make-up with a damp cloth or cleansing oil. While it may be more convenient, shortcut solutions like make-up wipes can leave behind an additional layer of residue on the skin (which defeats the purpose, am I right?). Now that your face is a blank canvas, you’re ready to apply a creamy, sulphate-free cleanser to gently remove impurities. 
  2. Serums – Serums are a great way to target specific concerns and give your skin the extra TLC it needs. Popular serums like Vitamin C or E are great for preventing damage and improving texture. There are coutnless other serums that address redness, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and more! These products contain a concentrated dose of their active ingredients so you only need to use a few drops and gently pat into the skin. When using more than one serum in you routine, make sure to consult a dermatologist or check the active ingreidents to make sure they can be used at the same time.
  3. Moisturizer – Moisturizer is a must! To adequately hydrate and soften skin, fragrance-free moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day – both morning and night. Always wash your hands before applying moisturizer. The last thing you want to do is add dirt or bacteria into the mix. And remember, you only need a small, pea-sized amount of this product to experience maximum hydration. If you have dry or combination skin, you may also want to use a balm like Satya to give your daily moisturizer a boost.
  4. Sunscreen – Finally, sunscreen is a crucial ingredient in skincare routine steps! Cancer-fighting sunblock can shield your face from damaging UVA and UVB light. It also performs double duty by preventing disease while reducing visible signs of aging. Whether or not you choose to include additional products, sunscreen should be a staple in your skincare routine.
