Skincare has become one of the most integrant parts of healthy living. Having good and healthy skin is not only for better looking but also for self-confidence.
Everyone nowadays is trying to look better, but they don’t know-how, how to maintain our skin? So, today I am going to guide you through some face care tips or routine as you might see.
Basically, there are multi-face types like Oily, Dry, Combination, Combination to dry, etc. My skin is oily and I think that’s the worst type, only oily skin people will understand this. Anyway, so you don’t have to worry this routine is for people with every face type. Feel free to follow.
Face care routine or Skincare routine is not only about Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing. First, make sure to leave behind anything you had in your mind previously about Skincare.
5 basic skincare regime or routine –
1. Cleansing –
There are so many Cleansers available market like Gel Cleansers, Lotion Cleanser, Foam Cleanser, etc.
So you need to choose Cleanser depending upon your skin type, but which type will suit my skin?
I can’t tell which type to use but can suggest you avoid some cleansers depending on your face type.
If you have Oily Skin then avoid Cleansers with oily, or moisturizing properties.
If you have Dry Skin then avoid Foam Cleansers, cause it can completely dry out your skin.
Other than that, feel free to try other Cleansers and choose which suits your skin. Make sure to use them twice daily.
I have some amazing recommendations depending on your skin type –

For Dry Skin –

For Combination/All Skin Type –

2. Exfoliating –
Exfoliating if the part where most people just ignore this part of the routine. This is a really important routine for your skin.
Exfoliating your skin every week or twice a week depending on your skin type will remove all your dead skin cells, suntan, and boost your collagen synthesis process.
Benefits of Exfoliating –
- Removes Dead Skin Cells
- Removes Dirt/Oil which creates acne
- Reduces Blemishes
- Reduces Suntan
- Clears Pores
- gets rid of Black Heads/White Heads
- Collagen Boost
See, there is way more benefit of Exfoliating your skin then just Cleansing, thus it is the most important face care regime.
Just like cleansers, there are tons of Exfoliating Scrubs in the market, but which to choose depending on your skin type?
It does not matter your skin type, Exfoliating your face with any exfoliator is beneficial.
Though below are some of my recommendations and that are the best exfoliators in the market right now –

3. Toning –
You might have not heard of Toning or even you’ve heard, you might think that it’s just too much. But today I am going to convince you that why is toning necessary.
Due to cleansers, your skin might lose the balance between your pH level that is 7. Cleansers might raise your pH level or down it, depending on your skin type.
To make your skin balanced again you need to use Toners. What Toner does is removes your makeup if you have it, removes cleanser residues, prepares your skin for moisturizer, which we will talk later & also detoxifies in some cases.
Benefits of Toning –
- Removes Cleanser Residues
- Balances Your pH Level
- Make Your Skin Ready For Moisturizer
- Detoxifies Skin
- Reduces Pores
Toners now have become more advance than it used to be previously. It is way more helpful and necessary for your face care regime.
Just make sure to avoid the use of Toners with Alcohol, cause it dry outs your skin, and are of no use.
These are my choices for Toners which are best in the market right now –
For Oily Skin –
Plum Green Tea Alcohol-Free Toner – Checkout!
The Face Shop Rice & Ceramide Moisturizing Face Toner – Checkout!
You might be already familiar with the term moisturizer, and you might use it too. If not, then what are you doing.
Moisturizer helps your skin to heal, prevents rashes, its best skin protection in winter because everyone’s skin becomes dry.
Just like Toner, Moisturizer also helps your skin to balance. If your skin is too dry or too oily it might give you a severe breakdown.
Now the biggest misconception, if you have oily skin then you don’t have to use moisturizer. Always use moisturizer even if your skin is oily.
Use Moisturizer right after using Toning, or Cleansing your face. Apply twice daily,
Benefits of Moisturizer –
- Boost hydration
- Prevents dullness
- Protective Layer
- Mixes Perfectly Creams (sunscreen, anti-aging, etc.)
But you have to be cautious before using any moisturizer for your oily skin, any moisturizer might not be suitable for your skin, it might cause breakdowns.
Always use moisturizers which are made specifically for oily skin people.
Below are some of the best moisturizers available in the market, which will be suitable for your skin type –
For Oily Skin –
Mamaearth Oil-Free Moisturizer (My favorite) – Checkout!
For Dry/All Skin –
5. Protection –
This part of our face care regime is also one of the most important. Direct sun rays can harm your skin quite worse than you think. Using a proper sunscreen before going in direct UV rays is a must. It’s even recommended by dermatologists.
Going in direct sunlight can cause wrinkles or even some age spots, suntan, dry pores, sunburn, and most severe even Skin Cancer.
Sun rays are a healthy source of Vitamin D if you are confused, but only morning sunlight of 10-15 minutes is good for health.
Benefits of Sunscreen –
- Prevents Face Discolorations
- Prevents Brown Spots
- Slows down the aging process
- Prevents Suntan
It doesn’t matter your skin type, you have to use Sunscreen at least 30 SPF. But you need to be cautious again while choosing a sunscreen for oily skin type (told you oily skin is worse). It’s not that hard just use sunscreen made specifically for oily skin type.
Below are some of the best recommendations of sunscreen available in the market.
