How to Create a Daily Skin Care Routine

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

Creating a Simple Daily Skin Care Routine You'll Actually Follow

31% of consumers in the UK buy skin care products at least once a month. You could end up wasting time and money if you're not choosing the right skin care products, however.

Once you have the right products, you also need to develop a skin care routine and stick to it.

Unsure of where to start? Here's everything you need to know about creating the best skin care routine for your skin type. Once you do, you can start properly using your skin care products to experience smoother, healthier skin.

Discover your simple skin care routine with these easy-to-use tips!

Know Your Skin Type

Before you even purchase your products, you need to know your skin type. Otherwise, you could end up doing more harm than good.

Skin care products that claim they work for every skin type rarely work. After all, your skin has specific needs. Here are the four skin types that can help you find the right products for your skin care routine:

  • Dry skin: feels tight and is more prone to redness, flaking, and wrinkling
  • Oily skin: often shiny with large pores and prone to blemishes and blackheads
  • Normal/Combination skin: oily areas are often around the t-zone, with dry skin at the cheeks
  • Sensitive: delicate, fine pores and skin that is easily irritated

Don't forget: your skin changes as you age.

The Order Matters

In 2018, the global skin care market was worth nearly $135 billion. That's an increase of nearly 60% in 10 years. Using your products in the wrong order could waste all you're spending on your products.

Only a small amount of the ingredients you penetrate your skin. By using the products in the right order, you can maximise their effectiveness as a whole.

Your Daytime Routine

Start your daytime skin care routine with a cleanser for your skin type. At Dr Aesthetica, we find the best cleansers to be Alumier MD Purifying Gel Cleanser or SensiCalm. These work on specific skin types.

Next, try an antioxidant serum, which can neutralise the sun's UV rays and environmental pollutants. You can also use an eye cream in the morning for UV-protection to prevent fine lines from forming.

Then, complete your daytime routine with SPF. We recommend a mineral based, true UVA and UVB block. We have a specific range of sunblock which will hydrate your skin and protect you from UV rays that can age your skin.

Your Nighttime Routine

Start your night-time skin care routine by cleansing. This removes makeup, dirt, excess sebum which prepares your face for treatment.

This is then followed by your eye cream.

Add a treatment serum (such as acne cream, retinol, or anti-ageing serum) to your evening routine. Use what you need based on your skin's current condition. For example, you can schedule a skin peel once a week to treat your skin.

Then, finish your evening skin care routine with a thicker, hydrating moisturiser if needed.
