We are sure it must be difficult to follow the principle of minimalism when we look at unending claims made by beauty products online and on aisles in stores. These days you can hear dermatologists and beauty experts’ advice to follow a simple skincare routine, but, how could you?
With so many options shown to us on a daily basis, the word ‘simple’ and ‘basic’ have lost all meaning in itself. In this article, we list down a straightforward skincare routine which lists down 4 steps than will ensure a decent healthy skin. This routine is recommended to everybody with a time crunch, beginners to skincare and minimalism enthusiasts.
4 simple steps to maintain good skin –
Use a gently exfoliating cleanser to remove dead skin, dirt and bacteria that has accumulated on your face from your day’s activities. Using a chemical exfoliator is better than a scrub as a scrub can irritate your skin and strip it off of essential natural oils.
Beaumark Beauty’s Maskne Gentle Cleanser offers a gentle exfoliation to your skin. It’s combination of ingredients provide hydration, thorough cleanse and a healthy glow.
The choice of a serum is optional and subjective. You can include Vitamin C or Hyaluronic acid serum in your routine to get extra hydration, even out skin texture, hyperpigmentation and acne spots. Retinol is also considered as one of the most potent active ingredients to reduce aging.
Moisturizing skin is a very powerful step to protect your skin’s barrier and retain moisture into it. This step also helps keep the skin smooth and soft. It is recommended to moisturize twice in a day.
Any sunscreen with SPF 15 and above is advisable because it’s the most potent form of skincare that is proven to reduce and reverse signs of aging. Sunscreen also prevents our skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. It is recommended to use a sunscreen separately in the end of the routine as it provides stronger benefits.
We hope these steps will keep you from getting overwhelmed while deciding on how to take care of your skin.
