The Ordinary's Guide to Skincare

 Introduction

There is so much noise in the beauty industry, that it’s hard to know what information is useful and relevant. However, we all need an effective skincare routine in our lives, depending on your skin type and concerns, different products tackle those specific issues.

Most of us love a good skincare routine because it helps us prep our skin for makeup application or stand-alone as a complete beauty routine for the day. Having a set skincare routine makes your daily beauty regimen easier (and less stressful) to manage. Think of it like having a personal chef at home, you wouldn’t have to think about what to cook for dinner and how many calories are in an apple vs. an orange. 

You would just follow a set plan every day, making life much simpler and leaving you with more time to do other things you enjoy.

The Ordinary's Guide to Skincare

Morning Skincare Routine

- Wash: If you have oily skin, you’ll want to go with a non-drying sulfate-free cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. If you have combination skin, you can use a hydrating cleanser to balance out your skin. If you have dry skin, look for a cleansing balm that is going to be hydrating and soothing.

- Exfoliate: This is a critical step in any routine as it helps unclog pores, smooth skin texture, and prepares your face for the rest of the steps.

- Tone: A toner helps close your pores, fight blemishes, and balance your skin. If you have oily skin, you might want to pick a toner with witch hazel or salicylic acid to control excess oil. If you have dry skin, hydrating toner is a great option.

- Moisturize: If you want to seal in all the good things you’ve done for your skin, you need to moisturize. Moisturizing is a crucial step in any skincare routine because it helps keep your skin hydrated, smooth, and glowing. Choose a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type.

Evening Skincare Routine

- Wash: The same goes for an evening skincare routine as a morning one.

- Exfoliate: An effective exfoliating cleanser or scrub will help clear away dead skin cells and unclog pores. 

- Tone: A skincare is essential for evening skincare as it helps close your pores, fight blemishes, and balance your skin. If you have oily skin, you might want to pick a toner with witch hazel or salicylic acid to control excess oil. If you have dry skin, hydrating toner is a great option.

- Moisturize:  You don’t necessarily have to moisturize in the evening, but if your skin has been particularly dry, it might be a good idea to keep it hydrated.

Weekly Routine

- Exfoliate: You can do this every other week, or once a week, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, you might want to pick a gentle scrub or use a physical exfoliant. If you have dry skin, you might want to try a chemical exfoliant.

- Mask: Doing a face mask once a week is a great way to treat your skin. You can either do it before or after exfoliating, depending on what your skincare routine looks like that day. If you have oily skin, you might want to pick a hydrating mask. If you have dry skin, you might want to try a hydrating or collagen-boosting mask.
