A personalised skincare routine is important to maintain the health of skin and ensure that you get the full benefits of the products you’re using. This includes using products in order and also considering the time of day you’re following your routine (note: there are differences between day and night cream).
Healthy and well maintained skin can carry out its function as a defensive barrier properly, whilst appearing smooth and bright. Poorly maintained skin may not be as effective at carrying out its protective duties and can appear dull and tired.
Your day routine should be more focused on protecting your skin from environmental stressors with moisturising products that contain antioxidants for skin.
At night your skin begins to repair itself as you sleep, and is less exposed to environmental stressors. Therefore this is a good time to use products that will keep skin hydrated whilst supporting this regeneration.
Since our skin is unique, we can’t all follow the same skincare routine. Factors like age, skin type, and other skincare needs play into your own personalised skincare routine.
