The world of beauty can be overwhelming and complicated at times, especially when it comes to layering our skincare. Many swear by the 10-step Korean skincare regime, while others stick by a more simple routine that will have you out of the house within minutes. From cleansers to toners – oh, and don’t get us started on retinols – the options are aplenty.
While the concept of “one-size-fits-all” skincare may have worked before the millennials came of age, it is no longer viable. As savvy skintellectual consumers, we’re more well-informed about the products we use that target our specific skin conditions. I mean, do we really need 10 products to achieve that flawless complexion our favourite Korean celebs swear by? Probably not.
Thing is, everyone has their own skincare routine – in fact, some people do far better with lesser skincare products in their regime. Say, a basic one would usually include a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. But what’s important is that we’re applying them in the right order.
And while the temptation might be to skip products altogether to keep the skin as bare as possible, applying them in the wrong order could render them ineffective or it could even irritate your skin. (So you should probably think twice about tossing that new bottle of toner you got from Sephora and reconsider how you’ve been applying your products.)
So what better way to tackle some of these pressing skincare issues than with the help of some of the best beauty experts in the industry. If you’re looking for some reliable tips on how you can improve your day and night routine, continue to read on.
