Skincare routine essential steps

A skincare routine is crucial for several reasons, from ensuring your skin is functioning at its optimum, to helping to protect, strengthen and repairing the all-important skin barrier and of course, keeping you on track towards hitting your skin goals. But it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to building your own skincare routine.

 
Should it be 10-steps? Do I need different for morning and evening? The secret? It’s all about locking down the essential skincare steps.


Let’s start with the fundamentals that every skincare routine needs…

1. CLEANSE

The starting point for every skincare routine, finding the right face cleanser for you will set you up for success. From nourishing balms to gentle exfoliators, cleansers help to remove the buildup of dirt and impurities so you’re working with a deeply cleansed, refreshed base for the rest of your routine.

2. HYDRATE

At INKEY we believe that healthy skin starts with hydrated skin, so that’s why we gave hydration its own step in the routine. Skin hydration products are the foundation to building your healthiest skin because fundamentally hydrated skin works better.

3. TREAT

Whether it’s a hydration booster or a glow-giving treatment, face serums are an important skincare routine step to help target specific skin concerns. Formulated with potent, hard-working ingredients to help deliver the good stuff directly where your skin needs it most, a face serum can really supercharge your routine. 

4. TONE

Adding a toner to your routine can help to prep the skin for other steps. From hydrating and nourishing to gently exfoliating, face toners can provide an extra helping hand to support your skin’s needs, improving skin texture and brightness for a smooth, healthy-looking complexion.

5. MOISTURISE

No matter your skin type, there’s a perfect face moisturiser for everyone. Not just essential for keeping your skin hydrated, face moisturisers are a vital part of any skincare routine to help draw and lock in moisture while keeping your skin barrier functioning at an optimal level.

6. MASK

Face masks are ideal for the times when your skin needs a boost. Often underestimated, face masks are packed with a host of nourishing and restorative ingredients that will revitalise your routine whilst also helping to target specific concerns from enlarged pores to dehydration.
