The Daily Routine: Your 6 Must-Do Steps For Comprehensive and Consistent Skincare

The Daily Routine: Your 6 Must-Do Steps For Comprehensive and Consistent Skincare

When it comes to caring for your skin you have hundreds of options.

When it comes to achieving your best complexion and aging gracefully, the real secret is consistency!

Rather than constantly trying out new products and formulas, it’s important to understand that your skin will get the most benefit from perfecting one daily routine and then sticking to it.

To help you get it right every time, here are the most essential steps to follow:

  • Cleanse 1

    The fundamental first step of any skincare routine will always be cleansing. A good goal is to spend at least two minutes gently massaging your skin as you cleanse, in order to thoroughly remove dirt, sweat, bacteria, pollution, excess oil, traces of makeup, and any other impurities that can cling to the skin. For oily or combination skin, a gel cleanser such as Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser by Image Skincare is a good choice. Or for drier skin types, look for a creamy cleanser such as Vital C Hydrating Cleanser by Image.

    Supplement Step: Balance your gut for clearer skin with two scoops of this this vegan protein powder daily with super greens, super fruits, fiber and pre- and probiotics.

  • Exfoliation and Masking 2

    For a deeper cleanse and to encourage cellular turnover, you will want to include exfoliation about 1-3x per week. Ormedic Balancing Gel Polish or Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Cleanser by Image Skincare are great choices. Additionally, if you have time, it can also be very helpful to include a nourishing mask following exfoliation to lock in moisture and promote repair following exfoliation. For this, the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque by Image Skincare would be a perfect pairing.

    Supplement Step: A foundational supplement with all of the necessary daily vitamins and nutrients will help protect the skin from free radicals from the inside out.

  • Serum 3

    To target specific concerns such as aging, dehydration, discoloration, or sensitive skin, serums are an ideal go-to for infusing your skin with concentrated active ingredients. For best results, serums should always be applied to clean skin. For addressing signs of aging and dehydration, Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic 6 Filler by Image Skincare is a true game-changer. Or if you are looking for overall radiance and brightening, you could incorporate a vitamin C serum like Image’s Vital C Hydrating Antioxidant A C E Serum.

  • Moisturize 4

    All skin types need moisturizer – at least once, if not twice per day – to maintain proper hydration levels. Dry skin types should opt for more intense moisture in the form of a cream like Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème by Image Skincare. However, if you have combination or oily skin, you will benefit more from a lightweight balancing or gel-based moisturizer, such as Clear Cell Mattifying Moisturizer by Image.

    Supplement Step: For added moisture and plumping at a cellular level reach for a supplement with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and Ceramosides.

  • Sun Protection 5

    Of course, no skincare regimen is complete without sun care. If you are making the investment in your skin with a daily routine, SPF is needed to ensure that you are protected against the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. For this, look for a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more, and be sure to re-apply every few hours. For complete sun protection, Image Skincare has multiple bestselling options in tinted, mattifying and hydrating blends.

  • Supplement Your Skin 6

    Looking for an option to supercharge your daily skincare rituals? If so, a nutritional supplement can really help to reinforce all the benefits of topical skincare. An amazing AM option would be Hush & Hush’s TimeCapsule, which is a daily multivitamin designed to prevent environmental damage and other aging concerns.
