According to Instagram hashtags, the term basic means pumpkin spice lattes, skinny jeans, and infinity scarves. But, when it comes to skincare, I’ve found that having a basic everyday skincare regimen is really important to stay on track, even for the pros.
Most of my clients don’t have a skincare regimen and some clients use so many products that their products start working against them. I always tell my clients looking for a good skincare routine; go back to basics. When basic skincare is mastered, then one can add more to the daily routine.
Sometimes, I get off track with my own skincare routine especially when I’m testing new serums or oils or if I‘m traveling. Luckily, I’ve developed a routine that gets me back on track after going awry.
Here is a perfect routine to start if you don’t have one, an excellent re-group if your skincare routine has fallen off track, and a simple routine to follow if your skin is breaking out.
Back to Basics Skincare Routine:
I like to jumpstart my routine with a high quality face mask. I am currently using Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask.
Morning- Cleanser. Toner. Moisturizer (SPF if you're outside or driving). Makeup
* I lay off the makeup as much as I can when getting back to basics. If I'm going to work, I wear minimal makeup. The skin needs to breath!
Exfoliator- 2x a week morning
Night- Cleanser. Toner. Night Moisturizer (No SPF)
After getting back to basics for two weeks straight, you can add another skincare product you love.
This Basic skincare routine is a wonderful routine for someone new to skincare or for someone whose skincare has gone awry. I often recommend this skincare routine to my bridal clients, ensuring that they will be glowing on their wedding day.
As always, contact me personally to help you get on a glowing skincare routine!
