Daily Skincare Routine: The 4 Steps You Can’t Miss

Take a look at these 4 steps to add to your daily skincare routine that are sure to give your skin the treatment it deserves for perfect skin.

Treating your skin right should be on your to-do list every day. Of the one and a half to two square meters of skin we have covering our whole body, our face is the most delicate, so it needs extra attention.

When it comes to skincare, there are hundreds of products to choose from. Knowing how and when to use them is essential.

Here is a step by step skincare routine that you can use on a daily basis, allowing you to give your skin the proper TLC it deserves, and needs:

Step 1: Cleanse

Start with a cleaner. Remember to choose one that is non-abrasive, alcohol free and works for your skin type. If you have normal skin, AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Brightening Cleanser would suit you. If you’re skin’s a little more sensitive, then choose AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Foaming Cleanser to help calm your skin.

Whichever option you choose to use, be sure to wash your face with lukewarm water and use your fingertips to apply the cleanser. By using a washcloth or sponge, you cause future irritation to your skin.

Finish off by patting your skin dry with a soft towel – don’t rub. Rubbing can lead to irritation and inflammation.

Step 2: Apply treatments or medications

Now, it’s time to apply any treatments or medications on your face that you might want to use. Throughout this step, keep in mind how delicate your skin is.

Gently pat any cream onto your face using your ring finger, which is the weakest and is less likely to pull or stretch the skin.

Step 3: Moisturize and protect

Next, it’s time to hydrate your skin. If you’re concerned about the aging effects of the sun, you should use SPF protection as well. To save time, you can complete these two steps at one with a moisturizer with SPF protection, such as Aveeno® Positively Radiant® Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

Step 4: Remove makeup

If you choose to apply makeup after Step 3, remember to remove make up with wipes or cleanser before bedtime. By letting your makeup ‘sleep with you’, it can lead to blocked pores, eye irritation and infection, dry skin, and premature aging of the skin.
