With so many beauty products to choose from, it can get pretty difficult to figure out the best way to structure your daily skincare routine. To get the best results and achieve healthy skin, paying attention to the order in which you apply your products is crucial. View our step-by-step guide below to learn how to follow a dermatologist-recommended daily beauty routine!
Step 1: Gentle Cleanser
First things first: before you apply any other product to your skin, you’ll need to start with a clean canvas. Ditch the makeup wipes, though—you’ll need to actually wash your face to reap all the benefits of your skincare routine, upgrade yourself to our ultra-sonic Cleansing Brush that will easily remove any leftover makeup and dirt. That means that your face needs to be free of any oil or grime; however, if your skin is prone to dryness, use a creamy, gentle cleanser once daily and rinse your face in the evening.
Step 2: Toner
This fast-penetrating liquid used to get a bad rap because these products once contained alcohol, which is extremely drying and harsh on skin. Now, toners still have astringent properties and can contain acids, glycerin, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories to prepare your skin to absorb other products.
Step 3: Antioxidant (Vitamin C) Serum
Face serums are nutrient-dense, highly concentrated treatments that target wrinkles, fine lines, and other major skin concerns. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that works wonders to encourage your skin to produce more collagen and helps prevent oxidative damage from UV light and pollution. Using either our electric Gus Sha or the Roller + Gua Sha Set to evenly distribute the serum throughout your face to get a most of the properties.
Step 4: Eye Cream
The skin on your eyelids and under eyes is much more sensitive and thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, which is why it’s important what products you use in that area to not cause any irritation. Eye cream helps retain skin elasticity in these areas and helps prevent collagen loss as well as dark circles. Our Smart Eye Massager is designed to relieve any strain on your eye and to keep the dark eyes away.
Step 5: Spot Treatment
Whether you’re treating acne, scars, or other blemishes, spot treatment is great for giving you a more precise brightening effects in problem areas. If you’re treating dark spots, it’s best to stay consistent with apply your spot treatment especially if you are wearing it during the day, so be sure to use extra sun protection. If you’re looking for a more hydrating product to fade acne scars, the Blass Balm is a powerful, dermatologist-approved dark spot treatment that targets new and lasting hyperpigmentation.
Step 6: Moisturizer
Lock in all those hardworking products with a good moisturizer, preferably a hyaluronic-based product that isn’t too heavy or feels greasy. If you plan to wear makeup, let your moisturizer absorb into your skin for at least 10 minutes. Our Blass Balm can also step in as a moisturizer and a primer for that need hydrate throughout the day whether you are wearing makeup or going bare face.
Step 7: Sunscreen
Daily sun protection is key! Ask any dermatologist: consistently wearing sunscreen in your 20s is one of the best ways to keep your skin healthy over time. Find a sunscreen you like with a minimum SPF of 30 and reapply throughout the day.
