Everyone wants to look their best. Aging is a natural part of life—and a beautiful one at that—but it is always nice to look and feel as youthful as possible. Having a healthy skincare routine can help you to achieve this.

If you’ve always wanted to have your own skincare routine but weren’t sure where to start, don’t worry. It can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be an overly complicated process.

Set yourself up for skincare success with this simple guide. Read on to learn the steps for building your very own age-defying skincare routine.

1. Determine Your Skin Type

Everyone is different, and so is their skin. This means that what works well for one person’s skin type, will be all wrong for someone else’s. The first thing you need to do to build your dream skincare routine is to determine what type of skin type you have.

Skin types normally fall into one of five categories. These are normal, dry, oily, combination, or sensitive. Try to determine which one best represents your skin and you’ll have a better idea of where to go from there.

2. Do Your Research

If you’re really serious about building an effective and lasting skincare routine, it might be helpful to consult with an expert. Speaking with an aesthetician or dermatologist can give you clarity of what your skin needs and what you should and should not be doing to help it. You can also always do your own research in this regard—the internet is a great resource!

3. Practice Self Care

Believe it or not, factors such as stress can take a serious toll on your skin. This is why it is important to take time to really look after yourself. This is why having standing appointments for things such as facials can help your skin in both the short and long term.

4. Be Kind to Your Skin

You can have the most expensive and extensive skincare routine in the world, but if you’re continuing to make certain lifestyle choices it’s not likely to make much of a difference. Things like not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water, and seeing too much sun can all do serious damage to your skin. Make small changes and before long you’ll see big results.

5. Make It Manageable

When it comes to building the perfect skincare routine, you might be thinking that the more steps you have, the better it will be.  But in reality, the most important factor when it comes to your skincare is consistency. Make your routine easy to achieve and you’ll be more likely to keep up with it each day for best results.
