How to establish an effective skincare routine

2nd December 2013

Many of us take extra care and pride in the way we manage our skin to ensure we have a radiant and glowing looking complexion most of the time. It’s vital for us to follow an effective skincare routine on a daily basis.

Below is an example of an effective skincare routine and tips you could follow to achieve outstanding looking skin.

Step 1: Avoid touching your face

Try to avoid touching the skin on your face. When you touch your face you are unknowingly transferring a great deal of bacteria, that can result in the creation of unattractive pimples on your skin.

Step 2: Find out what your skin type is

Only buy skin care products that suit your skin, as these are the products that will be effective on your skin and not cause a reaction. It could be a good idea for a skin care expert to determine your skin type at a reputable and specialist skin clinic such as sk:n clinics.

Step 3: Buy a cleanser, toner, moisturiser, cotton pads and a face mask

With refular use of these gentle and sensitive cleansing products you will be able to remove excess oil from your skin and achieve healthier and clearer looking skin.

Step 4: Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day

You should cleanse, tone and moisturise once in the morning before you put on make-up and once at night before you go bed. This will enable your skin to heal and breath overnight when it's not clogged by dirt or make up.

Step 5: Invest in skin peels

You should treat yourself from time to time with skin rejuvenation treatments such as skin peels at a professional skin clinic like sk:n. A chemical peel is a highly effective way to revitalise the skin and reduce the damage caused by ageing and over exposure to the sun, amongst other factors. If you want to visit a skin clinic then ensure you take advantage of sk:n's anti-ageing rejuvenation promotions and get booking today.

Step 6: Instead of your daily cleanser, you should exfoliate with an exfoliating facial wash

This task should be carried out once or twice a week so you are able to remove the dead skin in any creases especially around the nose area, which often get clogged up and develop blackheads.

Step 7: Ensure you stick to your skin routine

It's easy to fall back into bad habits, so make sure you avoid this and stick to your skin routine to maintain youthful and beautiful looking skin.
