Start by removing any makeup using a gentle makeup remover or micellar water. Ensure that all traces of makeup are thoroughly cleansed from your face.
Cleanse your face with a suitable cleanser for your skin type. This helps remove impurities, excess oil, and any remaining makeup.
If exfoliation is part of your routine, use a mild exfoliating product to slough off dead skin cells. This step can help promote skin renewal.
Apply a toner to balance the skin's pH levels and prepare it for the next steps. Toners can also help hydrate and remove any remaining impurities.
Use a targeted serum that addresses your specific skincare concerns. Serums with ingredients like retinol, hyaluronic acid, or vitamin C can be beneficial.
Apply a small amount of eye cream to address concerns such as fine lines, dark circles, or puffiness. Gently pat the product around the eye area using your ring finger.
Choose a night cream or moisturizer that suits your skin type. Night creams are often more hydrating and can help repair the skin overnight. Apply it evenly to the face and neck.
If you use any specific treatment products, such as acne medication or prescribed creams, apply them at this stage.
Hydrate your lips with a nourishing lip balm to prevent dryness.
Consider using a sleeping mask or overnight treatment for added hydration and skin repair. Apply it as the last step in your routine.
