Building a skincare routine

Selecting the right products to create a natural skincare routine that's suited to your skin's needs can be overwhelming. There are many products and potential combinations, so we've broken it all down here for you.

STEPS TO FOLLOW

These are the three basic steps that should be included in any skincare routine:

STEP 1

Cleanse and / or exfoliate

STEP 2

Tone

STEP 3

Moisturize with serum, cream and / or salve

What you will need

Here are the types of products that can be used in a daily routine:
Cleanser
A cleanser is used day and night to remove dirt, sweat and makeup and can have other benefits such as to soothe and hydrate.

Shop our cleansers

Exfoliator
An exfoliator is used a few times a week to gently resurface the skin, remove rough patches and barriers to absorbing hydration.

Shop our exfoliator

Toner
Toner is a liquid applied after cleansing. It adds another layer of hydration and helps skin to absorb a moisturizer applied afterwards.

Shop our toners

Serum
Serum is a concentrated hydrating fluid that absorbs deep into the skin, and can be worn alone or layered under a lotion or cream.

Shop our serums

Face Cream
A face cream provides a protective layer on the surface. It seals in hydration from a toner and serum in the skin.

Salve
A salve is a concentrated, intensive moisturizer in a solid balm form. It deeply hydrates and protects skin from the elements.

Types of Skin

Putting together a routine can be very personal and typically begins by taking note of your skin's hydration levels. Consider if you fit into one of the following categories:
Dry or Mature
May experience a tight or pulling feeling, rough patches and flaking
Normal
Comfortable feeling, no excess dryness or oil production
Combination
Can experience slight dryness and/or oiliness in different areas
Oily
Tendency to produce quite a bit of oil all over the face and no tight or dry feeling is present
Once putting together a routine, you will notice which products work best for you and how much or little of each you need to use in order to have your skin feel comfortable and hydrated.
