Skincare Routine: Comprehensive Care Guide and Tips

Simple and Natural Skincare Routine

A good skincare routine is essential to keep our skin healthy, radiant. It will help to delay the appearance of aging signs and decrease the chances of developing skin problems such as sunburn, acne, dryness and blemishes.

Simple daily habits like cleansing, toning, moisturizing and protecting from the sun and other external agents make all the difference in the appearance of your face.

 

What is a skincare routine?

A skin care routine is the series of products that you regularly use to care of your skin. Each skin type need will need specific products in order to achieve the best possible result.

A handful of skin care products are sources of toxins, hence most contain chemical ingredients that can have a negative long-term effect to your skin. It is advisable to choose and give preference to natural, organic and vegan brands, whose are adept to clean beauty and use the minimum of ingredients considered toxic to the skin.

It is worth mentioning that maintaining the consistency of a skin care is what will make a difference in the short and long term results, therefore, discipline is essential.

 

Skincare Routine: Step by Step

For a simple skincare routine, we need to follow some important steps that are essential for its effectiveness. In general, the ideal order is as follows:

 

 

Cleanser

This is the first and most important step because a clean skin is better prepared to receive the treatment care that will follow. The ideal soap should clean the face in an easy, gentle way, removing all dirt, makeup or excess products without irritating it.
If you prefer, you can use a cleaning oil to remove excess products and then use the soap that best suits your skin.

Toner

This liquid will regulate sebum production, soothe and remove impurities without drying the skin. There are several ways to apply a tonic. In Bacana, the tonic is available in the form of spray, so you just spray onto your face and neck, leave it to sink in for extra hydration or wipe away using a cotton wool pad, thus removing excess impurities and moisturizing at the same time.

Moisturizer

The moisturizer has the function of nourishing and protecting the skin from external aggressions, such as pollution and other types of dirt. For it to be absorbed, massage your face well with circular movements.

Sunscreen

Finally, it is important to apply a sunscreen that will protect the skin from the UV rays radiated by the sun and some electronic devices. Sun protection is the best ally to healthy skin aging, leaving it shiny and vibrant.

 

Extra steps

Exfoliators

Exfoliants are ingredients to help removing dead cells from the skin’s surface. If you think your skin needs a little makeover, you can opt for some natural options once a week. Just pay close attention to your skin’s needs as excessive exfoliation can cause irritation and remove the natural oil from the skin.

Mask

Adding a mask to your routine one or two days a week can help to bring some shine and will also revitalize your skin. Because it contains a higher concentration of active ingredients in the formula and stays in contact with the skin for a longer time, the facial mask offers a more effective action than ordinary moisturizers, which guarantees a more prolonged result. They can add an extra level of cleansing, unclog pores, even out your skin tone and enhance the effects of your daily care routine.

Morning Routine

In the morning, it is important to wash your skin, use a tonic, apply moisturizer and finally a sunscreen that best suits your skin with at least SPF 30.

 

 

Night Routine

Before going to sleep, you should wash your skin well to remove all the dirt accumulated during the day, tone, moisturize and apply some antioxidant serum that will help repair the skin and, if necessary, apply something specific to the eye area. Once or twice a week a clay mask of your choice can be applied right after cleaning your face.

Gently wash the skin once a day with the Cleansing Cream Face Wash;
Apply the Serenity Vitamin Mist Toner, which is alcohol free;
Use the Tropical Shine Oil Serum nourishing serum;
Use the Blooming Nature Cream moisturizer.
In the morning remember to apply sunscreen.

Skincare routine for a mixed skin type

Your skin may be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as in the T zone (the nose, forehead and chin area). For these skins, the ideal routine is as follows:

Clean the skin up to 2 times a day, paying more attention to the T zone;
Toning with the Serenity Vitamin Mist Toner;
Apply the Green Clay Face Mask to the T zone up to 2 times a week. In the drier area, use the Red Clay Face Mask;
Use the Tropical Shine Oil Serum nourishing serum;
