If you ask someone if they want naturally perfect-looking skin, you will obviously get a strong "YES!" So instead of asking you if you want that for yourself, we are here to help you create the perfect natural skincare routine.
Good skin isn't only about DNA. It is about your daily habits, the products you use, your consistency with a particular routine, and your eating habits as well.
While there's a lot of buzz around the products you must use, from moisturizing to UV ray protection, good skin comes down to a daily skincare routine. This blog will guide you through the basics so you know what to keep in mind.
The perfect natural skincare routine consists of 3 simple, essential skincare routine steps, commonly referred to as a CTM routine:
- Cleansing: The process of cleaning your skin off any pollutants, bacteria, makeup residue
- Toning: Providing refreshment to the skin and balancing the pH level of the skin
- Moisturizing: Hydrating and softening the skin as well as securing the effect of cleansing and toning
The primary goal of any skincare routine is to achieve healthy-looking, glowing skin. It's also to help you troubleshoot any skin concerns and treat them. Moreover, a skincare routine is the best way to understand what works for your skin and what doesn't.
And remember, your skin will age as you do. Hence, a skincare routine is not to create perfection. It is to fortify your skin, protect it from damage and, in turn, keep it thriving and young as ever!
Allow these three steps to become a part of your daily skincare routine, and give it time to show results.
Before you proceed to set a skincare routine, understand your skin type and then tread accordingly.
- After you wash your face, pat it dry and wait for 30 minutes, your skin type will be either of the following, depending on what you experience after the wash:
- Oily Skin- If it’s greasy and shiny
- Dry Skin- If it feels flaky, tight, or scaly
- Combination Skin- If it's oily only in the T-zone
- Normal Skin- If your face feels hydrated
Your skincare routine must revolve around your skin type, and all skin types require different yet special care and attention.
The perfect natural skincare routine steps:
Skincare Routine Step 1: Wash it off
Washing your face is the most essential and fundamental step of any skincare routine. We often bring home gifts of pollution like dirt and other factors latched onto our skin. As a part of your morning skincare routine, washing your face twice a day should be your holy grail. The perfect face wash helps avoid clogged pores, cleanse thoroughly and remove dullness.
Start with finding the right face wash for your skin. One that cleanses your skin without stripping healthy, essential oils. Avoid a product that is full of chemicals and instead opt for something natural to work on your skin like magic. We recommend Clean It Off Probiotic Face Wash by Sonnet Wellness. Its natural formula non-drying formula helps in gentle cleansing without drying it.
Skincare Routine Step 2: Tone thy skin
Today's toners aren't packed with astringents like from the 80s. It is true that toners were alcohol based and mainly used to dry up oily skin and to remove any dirt after cleansing.
However, toners today have evolved and cater to all skin types. Think of a face toner as a skin supplement that delivers nutrients to your skin. Toners help other products in your skincare regime get absorbed better.
And while most skincare routines will not include them, a face toner is a great way to incorporate specific ingredients that might not be present in other products.
We recommend Dab It On Probiotic Face Toner by Sonnet Wellness. It helps in balancing the pH level of your skin, smoothens the skin texture, and also helps in skin firming.
Skincare Routine Step 3: Let that Serum sink in
A face serum is the most powerful ally of your skin. It is filled with concentrated doses of active ingredients. Often referred to as skin elixirs, a face serum can mitigate several issues, from fine lines to dark spots. It comprises general antioxidants to protect you from daily aggressors. Incorporate these into your daily skincare routine to see the magic. Getting the perfect face serum may be a big ask, but we recommend Rub It In Probiotic Face Serum by Sonnet Wellness. It nourishes your skin without making it feel too sticky and is also ideal for everyday use.
Skincare Routine Step 4: Soak in the moisture.
Patting some moisturizer on damp skin is the best feeling ever, and the results are the best too! The primary function of face cream is to hydrate and soften the skin. It assists in preventing the loss of water through the outer layers of the skin.
Moisturizers are one skin care product that dermatologists recommend using year-round, irrespective of the skin type.
Skin loses the ability to retain moisture as we age and a face cream adds hydration to the face. If you are looking for the right moisturizer for your skin type, we recommend Soak It In Face Cream by Sonnet Wellness. This is an ultra-light moisturizer with unique properties of Jojoba oil that helps your face stay moisturized all day long.
The best results for a skincare routine will show up only with consistency. Remember to use your skin care products correctly: cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer.
Sonnet wellness products will only add to a seamless healthy skin. So, start by making them a part of your morning skincare routine and proceed as you feel the change!
