What Are The Basics Of Skin-care? A beginners guide from SKIN-RG

Skin-RG - The basics of skincare

With so many skincare products on the market, there is no wonder you may feel overwhelmed, confused, or even frustrated by the multitude of competing messages on how to best care for your skin on a daily basis. 

For this exact reason, we’re taking the headache out of searching high and low for advice and bringing it to you from the comfort of one blog from the skincare experts at SKN-RG themselves. 

Step 1: Cleanse

Our skin goes through a lot in one day. Dead skin cells form on the surface, not to mention dirt, oils and impurities that build up too. This is why we recommend beginning and ending each day with a gentle cleanser that is perfect for your skin. 

By cleansing each day, you improve the appearance of your skin's texture and avoid clogged pores, which often lead to breakouts or ageing. 

When selecting a cleanser, it’s important to pick one that is right for your skin - after all, you will be using it twice a day!

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliation, when done consistently, has proven benefits that leaves the skin looking and feeling radiant. Our skin care experts also refer to exfoliating as a ‘game changer’, which is why we have added it in as a key step. 

When you remove dead surface skin cells, the skin will appear brighter and has a smooth texture. It also leaves your skin better prepared to absorb the rest of your skin care regimen as dead skin cells block effective moisture to the skin. 

Exfoliation takes minutes, and can be done as little as twice a week. Our recommended exfoliator is kind to the skin, perfect for those who are slightly more sensitive.

Step 3: Treatment

The good news about a treatment is that it is super effective, but can be done little and often. A treatment is designed to address specific needs, which is why we have chosen a treatment that targets fine lines and increases skin health, collagen and elastin using essential medicinal herbs. 

Lightweight and fast absorbing, this skin care product helps soothe stressed and dehydrated skin in need of some extra TLC. 

With this product, a little goes a long way - place 2-3 drops onto your fingertips and smooth over the skin for that instant spa at home feeling

Step 4: Moisturise 

Once you have prepped the skin by cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating the skin. It’s time to lock in all those efficacious ingredients with the right moisturiser that will keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.  The product we are about to recommend is creamy, yet lightweight and fast-absorbing.

Perfect for all skin types and ages, this moisturiser will work hard to minimise and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin firmness. No matter the weather or the day you’re about to face, this moisturiser guarantees to protect your skin.

Step 5: UV Protection 

Now that your skin is moisturised, it’s time to protect it from the day ahead. If you think SPF is only needed during the summer, you are wrong. Why? Because sunscreen is a way to protect your skin cells and acts as armour against the outside world - especially harmful UV rays, which are here all year round.

Did you know that 80% of premature ageing is caused by the sun? Simply adding SPF into your every day, skin care regime will prevent and protect your beautiful, glowing, youthful skin. 

Our recommended product has SPF 30, making it a sufficient amount to protect from blue light.
