Six Essential Products Your Skin Care Routine Should Include

It’s never too late or too early to start taking care of your skin. Not only can a great skin care routine promote a radiant complexion, but it can also help prevent acne and treat wrinkles. However, it’s much more than your physical appearance. Your skin is the largest organ you have, so it’s imperative that you treat it right.

When it comes to skin care, many of us are completely clueless on where to even begin. If that sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place. Here are six essential products that every skin care routine should include to achieve a flawless look:


Before you put anything on your face, it’s important to have a clean canvas, which means unclogging your pores with a cleanser. For optimal results, look for a cleanser that is free from soap and sulphates. Some common cleansers include foaming gels, balm formulas, and micellar waters.


After you’ve cleansed, you should apply a water-based toner with your fingers or a cotton bud. We recommend rosewater face toner as it can be used on all skin types. This will help brighten your complexion and give your skin that radiant appearance.


Next up in the skin care routine is a serum. Depending on the areas you’d like to address you’ll need to find a formula that suits your needs. Some serums are designed to prevent dark spots whilst others reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Vitamin C is a great ingredient for any serum. For an extra step in your routine, you can dab on a bit of eye cream after applying your serum. This will help reduce puffiness and black circles.


Moisturiser is one of the most common skin care products used by men and women alike. However, for your skin care routine, it’s important that you purchase a facial moisturiser, as this will keep your skin looking hydrated and youthful.

Spot Treatment

No matter what skin type you have, we’re all prone to getting a blemish or two throughout the months. Benzoyl peroxide is a great treatment for pimples, blemishes, blackheads, and whiteheads. This ingredient will help remove bacteria on the surface of your skin and reduce inflammation.


Although we all love soaking in the sun and building a tan, sunscreen is essential if you want to prevent wrinkles in the future. Not only this, but proper sunscreen use can help reduce the possibility of skin cancer, which is much more serious than a couple of fine lines on your face.

Before you get ahead of yourself and start purchasing products, it’s important to evaluate what kind of skin type you have. Generally speaking, you can have normal, dry, oily, or combination skin. Without a rough idea of what skin type you have; your skin care routine won’t work as well. If you’re still struggling to nail the results you are looking for, reach out to a local dermatologist in your area.
