While every skincare routine should include six key steps, Lit&Glow simplifies this even further, expertly combining step to make your skincare routine easier and more effective than ever before.
Step 1: Cleansing
The first step in your skincare routine should be cleansing. Cleansing your skin allows you to remove dirt, sweat, and oil from the surface of your skin that can lead to clogged pores. So cleansing may seem like a simple and straightforward process.
Step 2: Exfoliation
While you definitely don’t need to exfoliate every day, you need to incorporate this essential step into your regular skincare routine. Depending on your skin type, you may need to exfoliate once or twice a week in order to get rid of dry skin cells and other built up substances. When it comes to exfoliation, there are two different types to choose from: chemical exfoliation and physical exfoliation. No matter which type of exfoliation you choose, it’s important to closely follow the directions provided on your exfoliating products because exfoliants can be harsh and damaging if used incorrectly.
Step 3: Toning
After exfoliating, the next step in your skincare routine should be toning. Many people think it’s safe for them to skip this step; however, this could be doing your skin a huge disservice. The main purpose of toners is to replenish the skin after cleansing and help prime your skin for the remaining steps in your skincare routine.
Step 4: Serums
Once your skin is toned and prepped, it’s time to move on to serums. Skincare serums are a great way to provide your skin with highly concentrated ingredients that pack a big punch. You should choose your serums based on your specific skin concerns.
Step 5: Moisturization
After applying your serums, you should then apply your moisturizer. Moisturizer nourishes your skin and allows it to maintain a soft and smooth appearance. it’s important to note that you may have to adjust your moisturizer throughout the year as the weather changes. You may need a lightweight moisturizer to combat oiliness and humidity in the summer before switching to a heavier moisturizer to combat dry and harsh air in the winter.
Step 6: Sun Protection
Speaking of seasons, sun protection is the final step of your skincare routine that you’re going to want to cover all year long. The sun has extremely powerful rays that can cause a lot of damage even when you least expect it.
