Great skin does not just rely on your genes but also on how well you take care of it.

Every little thing you do impacts your skin in various ways. Eating right, having adequate sleep and lastly a great skincare regimen—these are all great contributors to having the skin of your dreams.

Whether you are a man or a woman, a daily skincare routine is what you need as early as your 20’s. A great regimen today will keep your skin looking great today and forever!

Your skin type

Before you proceed with any step for your skincare routine, it is important to know what skin type you have. This is because every product works differently for every skin type. If you have oily skin and you apply products made for dry skin then you will end up having a breakout.

On the other hand, if you have dry skin and you use a product for oily skin then your skin might become extra flaky.

Your age

If you are in your mid to late 30’s then it is best to start using anti-aging skincare products so that by the time you are in your late forties or early 50’s your skin still looks a lot younger.

A basic skincare routine includes:

  • cleansing
  • toning
  • moisturizing.

Everything else in between or after is something you can always customize according to your requirements.

Step 1: Cleansing

Cleansers are water soluble and gentle for the skin and they help removing any dirt, oil or grime that is accumulated on your face. They are also used for removing makeup and prevent pores from being clogged.

Step 2: Toning

Toners are hydrating and rebalance the PH levels on the skin. They help the skin refresh and reduce patchiness or redness in the skin. A toner also works as an astringent can help to prevent any breakouts as well.


People often confuse moisturizing with being greased up in cream. Mo matter what your skin type is, a moisturizer is a great way to hydrate your skin to make it soft and supple.

Other steps

Scrubs and exfoliants

Investing in a scrub is a good idea for your bi-monthly dead skin removal. It makes your skin smoother and helps in removing the dullness and uneven skin tone. Don’t use it more than twice or thrice a month as it can make the skin sensitive overtime.

Acne treatment

If you tend to break out easily then always have a toner and face wash to your skincare routine with sacylicic acid. Use a topical cream containing benzoyl peroxide. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day to clear your skin and avoid wearing makeup on active acne.


Serums have made a comeback and this time they are here to stay.

They are especially formulated with natural and active ingredients that help in maintain the skin’s elasticity so if you are using anti-aging products, make sure to include serums in your nightly routine as well.


An SPF-50 is your holy grail for preventing the early signs of ageing. No matter what skin tone you have, it is a skincare staple!

With these products in your skincare regimen, you won’t have any trouble with your skin again.
