Where to Start with a Skincare Routine
If you are new to using skincare, then it can be hard to know where to start as facial beauty has become quite complicated in recent years. The good news is that it need not be and this is why at Nakin we have a capsule collection of essential natural face products, to keep things simple and effective. We further simplify a skincare routine by making all of our products multi-purpose, so you do not have to worry about having multiple products to address different skin concerns. All of our natural skincare offers products that help skin in multiple ways, which makes it much easier when starting a skincare routine.
Most companies will advise that you must understand your skin type in order to know what products to purchase. This is correct to some extent, but the truth is that most of us have a combination of different skin types which often includes areas of normal, oily, dehydrated, and sensitive skin. This is why most of Nakin’s products are designed for every type, as we use plant ingredients that all skin loves as they are never greasy or drying.
Once you have found a good quality range like Nakin’s then the next step is to create a skincare routine suited for you. It is important to follow a consistent skincare routine in order to get the most out of each product and maintain healthy looking skin. When creating your skincare routine, start with cleansing which should be carried out twice daily along with all the other products, except an exfoliator. Cleansers help to remove dirt, oil and makeup from the surface of your skin while still keeping its natural moisture intact. Avoid over-cleansing or using harsh soaps as this can strip your skin of its natural oils and cause dryness or irritation.
After cleansing, use toner if desired or an exfoliator, followed by treatments and a moisturiser. Moisturisers help to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, regardless of your skin type. A serum or oil will help to repair and rejuvenate.
If you are looking for quite a simple routine, then we would recommend either the Advanced Cleansing Milk or Rejuvenating Face Wash. The milk is more nourishing and comforting than the wash, but the face wash is also hydrating and will not strip skin. Then follow this with our Purifying Face Toner, plus either the Matt Formula Face Cream (for oily, combination, normal and sensitive skin) or the Active Dew Face Cream (for dry, combination, normal and sensitive skin). Both of our face creams are for day and night use and free from SPF. This is because they are rich in natural actives and extracts that give all the hydration, nourishment and protection needed for both day and night use. Then for the eye area use our Eye Cream Complex.
The above products would be a really good place to start with a skincare routine, and you can see how you are getting on with them before adding further products. If you are then looking for a more full complete routine then we would suggest adding in our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic at night time only instead of the toner, and then either our Performance Face Serum or Revitalising Face Oil, as a treatment after cleansing and before applying moisturiser. Plus, our Lip Treatment Balm.
Finally, complete your routine with some form of sun protection using a good sunscreen SPF moisturizer. This is because protecting the skin from UV rays is very important in order to prevent premature ageing and other damage that can cause wrinkles and discoloration.
These are the key steps to any skincare routine, and we hope that it provides a good starting point. By having a consistent skincare routine, it will not only improve the overall health of your skin but also ensure you get the most out of each product.
