It is never too early to start a skincare routine; your skin will thank you. However, it is suggested at puberty is a good time to start as this is when new hormones are introduced and acne may begin.   A skincare routine has multiple steps including cleansing, hydrating, treating and protecting your skin.

The purpose of a skincare routine is to improve your skin appearance, prevent signs of aging, prevent certain skin issues and to protect the skin by using the right products such as exfoliants, feels, masks, cleaners, moisturizers, and antioxidants/serums. Your first step in creating a skin care routine is to get to know your skin first.   Look for characteristics of your skin, identify if you have dry, oily, combination, and/or sensitive skin. 

Keep in mind to not get overwhelmed by or follow the ‘hottest trend’.  There are many products out there that may not be best for your skin type. Remember, it takes time to develop a consistent routine to see results.  Just like dieting, you can’t just eat one thing and expect to be healthy.  It needs to be a balance.  

The most important products you need to create your personalized skincare routine:       

  • Cleanser
  • Exfoliator
  • Toner
  • Serum
  • Eye Cream
  • Treatment
  • Chemical Peel
  • Face Masks
  • Moisturizer
  • Sunscreen (SPF)
