The Importance Of A Daily Skincare Routine

Posted on 11 Dec, 2023

Creating and sticking to a daily skincare routine is important for promoting skin health, addressing specific skin problems, and protecting your skin from the sun. A consistent skincare routine can be the best thing for your skin. Especially if you’re using products packed full of essential minerals and vitamins that will help take care of your skin. Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we offer a wide range of high quality skincare products packed full of goodness to help you reach your skin goals. 

The importance of a good skincare routine is not to be overlooked! Below are the steps you should follow to ensure your skin stays clean, hydrated, and protected.

Start with a gentle cleanser

Cleansing is a crucial step to any skincare routine. The purpose of cleansing is to remove any dirt, oil, makeup, and other buildup on the skin. You can even double cleanse to ensure all debris is removed and your skin is squeaky clean and ready for the next step. Cleansing also prevents acne by preventing clogged pores. The Deep Sea Cleanse by Zaheda Skincare is a great choice of gentle cleanser, as it eliminates impurities whilst protecting your skin’s natural barrier, most importantly.

Follow with a toner 

The second step to the ideal skincare routine is to tone. A gentle toner helps to balance your skin’s pH levels, and removes any impurities left behind from cleansing. This helps prep your skin for further steps, and also helps to tighten and form your skin as well.

Exfoliation (2-3 times a week)

This next step is a high quality exfoliation, which is something you should consider doing 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating everyday can irritate your skin, as it can be too harsh. Exfoliating with cheap scrubs can irritate and in some cases damage the skin and therefore it is essential to choose a high-quality super-smooth exfoliator such as the Ultra Smooth Sea Polish.

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and unclogs your pores, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. Exfoliation helps to reveal brighter and fresher skin, effectively improving texture as well. This also helps with the absorption of serums and moisturisers, optimising their efficiency. 

Serums and treatments

Using a serum or specialised treatment to address a specific skin issue is important in achieving your desired skin. Whether you’re treating acne, hyperpigmentation  or other various skin issues, it’s important to apply your treatment as instructed on the product. 

These products contain active ingredients that target your specific skin concern. Applying this before moisturiser tends to work better as opposed to after, as it gives the product a chance to soak into your skin first.

Moisturiser

Moisturiser hydrates the skin, creates a protective barrier, and seals in hydration and moisture. Moisturising prevents dryness and helps keep your skin smooth and soft. 

Sunscreen (in the morning)

Sunscreen is a crucial part of all skincare routines. Sunscreen as the final step of your routine helps to protect your skin from UV rays, reducing your risk of skin cancer and helping prevent premature ageing. Sunscreen is to be applied in any weather conditions. 

Remember to always do what’s best for you and your skin. If you’re unsure on where to begin when it comes to taking care of your skin, consult a dermatologist or skin care professional for tailored help.
