Do you always find skin care a hassle? We understand. Still, a good skincare routine is the foundation of healthy skin. When you do not take good care of your face, pimples and blemishes are given free rein. And no one is waiting for that. Not in the mood for hassle, but do you want healthy skin? Then quickly check out this super simple and effective daily skin care routine in just three steps!
Step 1: Facial cleanser
The first step is to cleanse your skin, both in the evening and in the morning. In your sleep, dead skin cells and waste products also build up, which can clog your pores. With a facial cleanser, you gently remove dirt, excess sebum and make-up residues. This way you prepare your skin for the rest of your routine.
Which cleaner is right for me?
There are different cleansers that are all intended for a different skin type. Do you have dry skin? Then go for a cleansing milk or cream. With oily or combination skin, you better choose gel or light foaming cleanser. Our favorite:
Step 2: Exfoliant
Time for the second step: an exfoliant! You apply this with a cotton ball and do not rinse off. An exfoliant ensures that dead skin cells are removed and makes your skin look younger. It also ensures that other products in your routine can be better absorbed by your skin. In short, really a must if you want to keep your skin healthy.
Which exfoliant is right for me?
Which exfoliant suits your skin also depends on your skin type. Normal to dry skin with pigmentation spots requires an AHA exfoliant. If you have oily or combination skin and you are sensitive to pimples, then you better choose a BHA exfoliant. Our favorite:
Step 3: Day and night cream
The last step in your daily routine is a day or night cream. In the morning you apply a day cream with at least SPF 30. During the day, the sun's rays damage your skin, causing premature skin deterioration, pigmentation or even skin cancer. Therefore, always protect your skin against the sun during the day, even if you do not burn quickly!
In the evening you go for a nourishing night cream. This has slightly different properties than the day cream. Your skin needs more repairing ingredients at night that strengthen the skin barrier and maintain the moisture level in your skin. In short, a good night cream moisturizes and keeps your skin beautiful and healthy.
Which day and night cream suits me?
Choose a cream that suits your skin type. If you have normal to dry skin, go for a day and night cream with a cream or lotion texture that moisturizes and nourishes your skin. For oily or combination skin, a product with a gel texture or a light, liquid texture is most suitable. These feel light on your skin and do not clog your pores. Our favorites:
