What is a skincare regimen?
 

Using high-end and zealously marketed skincare products doesn’t always mean they are the holy grail for your face. You should invest in products that work best on your skin, and not because your favourite celebrity endorsed them. And for any skincare product to give you better results, you need to religiously follow a regimen that covers all the essential steps. Your skincare routine depends on your skin type, the ingredients and formulations of the products you choose, the weather, and the time of the day you intend to indulge in it. Whether you are following a quick 3-step routine or an elaborate one that includes nine steps,  following a routine is important and so is following it in the correct order. A general rule used by most professionals is to apply products in order of their consistency that goes from the thinnest to the thickest. The basics of applying any product starts with cleaning your face to remove impurities. Follow it with a toner, an exfoliant and seal the goodness of products and moisture with a good moisturiser.
 

What Are The Benefits Of A Skincare Regimen
 

Indulging in a rewarding skincare regimen is no longer a luxury but a necessity. From harsh weather conditions to stressful days, almost everything under the sun takes a toll on your skin. Therefore, it is always a good idea to invest time in curating a skincare regimen that helps you and your skin stay healthy in the long run. Following a regimen consistently makes your skin healthier and prevents any damage. A skincare routine that tackles skincare concerns such as acne, breakouts, sun damage etc will give great results.
 

What Products to Include in a skincare Regimen
 

We get it, with dozens of skincare products debuting each day, it is easy to get lost and confused about  the products you actually need in your skincare regimen. Here are our top picks for skincare products that you should include in your everyday skincare regimen. 

Cleanser: A cleanser is an absolute saviour and helps you get rid of oil, dirt, and impurities off your face. This helps prep your skin for the rest of the routine to follow.
 

Toner: Use a toner right after you cleanse your face and before you begin using any other products. A toner will be one last wipe on the face that will help remove all the impurities left after a cleanse and also maintain the pH balance of your skin. . Pour a few drops of your toner onto a cotton pad and gently wipe your skin. If you use an exfoliating toner, make sure to avoid using any other exfoliators or retinol along with the toner.
 

Serum: A morning routine that is packed with antioxidants is a great way to kickstart the day. Apply serums enriched with Vitamin-C to leave for the day with a brightened skin. Remember to apply the water-based serum before a moisturiser and oil-based serums after moisturising your face.
 

Eye Cream: No, you cannot replace an eye cream with your everyday moisturiser as the former is specifically formulated to reduce puffiness in the morning and help reduce dark circles.
 

Moisturiser: After layers of products that you just applied, a moisturiser will help seal the hydration into your skin and keep your skin moisturised. For mornings, opt for light moisturisers, while for the nighttime you can opt for thicker formulations.
 

SPF: Using SPF is highly recommended by every dermatologist to create a barrier from the harsh UV rays. Besides that, a good SPF also prevents signs of ageing and combats fine lines and wrinkles.
