Skincare Steps You Should Never Skip

Cleansing, toning and moisturising. Anyone who knows anything about skincare will know that these three steps are vital for good skin. Seems easy enough, but with all the products on the market and the various skin types, how do you know which is best for you and if there are any other processes that should be part of your skincare routine?

As much as you do not want to waste time on your skincare, you also should take the extra 30 seconds to make sure you miss nothing important.

Toners

Toners have enjoyed a revival after being spurned by some beauty advisors. Now though, everyone realises their importance as long as you avoid alcohol bases that can dry the skin too much. That is great if you have greasy skin, but not so good if your skin is dry or normal. YesStyle skin toner online is a brilliant way to find the right toner for your skin. You can even filter so that only cruelty-free options will pop up!

Night Cream

Don’t use the same moisturiser at night as you do in the morning. Your skin is more receptive at night and adding a special night cream to your routine will help your skin regenerate. Use one with anti-ageing elements and extra moisturisers so that your skin is fully refreshed the next day.

Sheet Masks

Unlike traditional facemasks, you don’t wash sheet masks off when they are done. Instead, you pat what the sheet leaves behind into your skin. This means it’s still working even after the mask has finished. Sheet masks provide instant improvements and they are an ideal way to treat your skin in the long-term!

Decolletage

The thin and delicate skin of the neck is often ignored in many people’s skincare routines. We’ve all seen the people who face looks great, but then you notice how aged their neck looks and it rather spoils the illusion. The skin of your neck is very fragile and it will wrinkle and show age long before your face does!

To care for it, anti-ageing products and moisturisers are needed, lots of it. It is worth investing in a formula that is for this area, and for your chest too.

Serums

This might sound as though they are just something to treat the skin that isn’t a moisturiser, but there is much more to serums (like the ones in this Metro guide) than that. They are in a liquid form that your skin will absorb much more readily than it does creams! And they go deep to have a revitalising effect on your skin. They can be used before your normal moisturiser when they will work together to boost the effects of them both. Serums can also be used on their own if you have oily skin or are prone to acne, as they will provide some extra nourishment.

Sometimes, trial and error is the only way to find out which products are the best for your skin. This can be an expensive way to find out though, so hopefully, the above tips will help you to care for your skin!

Until next time ♡

  1. I do not have a skin care regime but I feel like I need to start one. I’m especially interested in using a different moisturizer at night and the face masks!

  2. Since I have reached my late 30s I have noticed that the skin on my neck is losing its firmness. I do agree that taking care of your neck just as you do your face is important.

  3. I cna’t tell you how many times recently I am so tired when I get home that I want to skip my whole night time routine! But those nights creams and serums are so so so important so I can usually talk myself into doing it!

  4. I totally agree! I make sure to include all these in my skincare regimen.

  5. I honestly did not know a lot of these tips! I’m super picky about what kind of products I use since I’ve been having issues with acne lately, but I do want to find a good toner and a serum!

  6. So many great tips. I wish I had a skin care regimen. I do try and make sure to moisturize my neck though.
