Skin Care Routine Order, From Cleansing to Glow

Skin care Routine order is a sequence of steps for regular use of skincare based on the order of daily skin needs. Healthy skin doesn’t come by itself. To get it, you must maintain healthy skin by eating nutritious foods and using skin care products.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body consisting of several layers. Each layer of skin has its own function. The epidermis as the outermost layer serves to protect the skin from various things that can cause skin damage, such as dust, germs, and sun exposure.

1. Skin care Routine order: Morning Skincare Order

Skincare products also do not consist of one or two products, but can reach dozens to achieve optimal results, you can follow the steps of the correct morning skincare use sequence below:

1. Micellar water or makeup remover

Always clean your face using micellar water or makeup remover, especially after applying makeup. Directly washing your face with facial cleansing soap does not remove all the dirt and makeup residue attached to the face. As a result, the pores can be clogged and then blackheads and pimples appear.

2. Face wash soap

Washing your face using facial foam and facial soap is the next stage of proper skincare. The point is to make sure all dirt and products left on the face are completely lifted. Not to mention, washing your face with water can refresh the skin.

3. Exfoliate

Avoid exfoliating facial skin every day because it will damage the skin’s natural moisturizing layer. Simply do this deep cleansing 2-3 times a week to remove dead skin cells and stubborn dirt on the face.

4. Toner

This skincare order is often missed because it is not considered essential. In fact, toner is very useful, especially for those of you who have oily skin and are prone to acne. Toner helps balance the pH of the skin and refreshes skin that tends to dry after cleansing.

5. Essence

The main benefit of essence is to provide moisture to facial skin so that it is ready to receive and ‘bind’ the benefits of the care products that you then use. Essence has 1-2 active ingredients in the form of concentrates; The texture is liquid and light so that it can penetrate into the epidermis layer of the skin to help treat the skin from the inside.

6. Serum, ampoule or booster

Advanced treatment stages become the next skincare order. Serums are very important for skin care because they contain nutrients in the form of various ingredients in concentrates. The serum serves to help care for the skin, therefore the ingredients are selected that can absorb into the epidermis of the skin.

Ampoules or boosters have more or less the same function as serum, only with a higher concentration of ingredients.

7. Sheet mask

Sheet mask serves to nourish and moisturize the skin. Use a sheet mask three times a week or when there is a special need, for example before using makeup for an important event or when the skin condition is dry.

8. Eye cream

Once the face is nourished, the next skincare order is to ‘lock’ all these nutrients with moisturizing cream, starting with eye cream. Eye creams help moisturize the skin around the eyes while helping fight the signs of skin aging.

9. Moisturizing cream

Moisturizer not only serves to moisturize facial skin, but also helps ‘lock’ all nutrients from previous treatments on the skin and disguise wrinkles and fine lines. Distinguish the use of moisturizer in the morning and at night because it contains different ingredients and benefits.

10. Sunscreen

The last skincare order is the use of sunscreen in the morning. Prolonged sun exposure can damage the skin and make the skin experience premature aging. You can use sunscreen or moisturizer that contains sunscreen to protect facial skin from UV rays from the sun.*

2. Skincare Order at Night

If the above is the order of morning skincare use, this is the step-by-step order for night skincare use:

1. Makeup remover

After a day of activities, the face will be full of dust and dirt. Use an oil-based cleanser that effectively removes the remaining makeup, sunscreen, and pollution particles that stick to the face at night.

2. Facial Wash

The second stage of double cleansing focuses on cleaning facial skin from the rest of makeup cleansers and other impurities. Use a facial wash that suits your skin concerns, for example for glowing and bright faces.

3. Exfoliate (twice a week)

This step is important to remove piles of dead skin cells and pore-clogging dirt that causes the face to look dull. You can use scrubs or chemical exfoliants to do so.

4. Toner

Toner is useful for balancing the PH of facial skin while refreshing facial skin after a day of activities.

5. Essence

Helps restore reduced facial skin moisture after cleansing, while preparing facial skin to receive further treatment.*

6. Serum

Contains high concentrations of ingredients that help overcome specific facial skin problems, for example for premature aging, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, and others. Just 2-3 drops and applied all over the face, its function is to brighten the skin to the cell layer and reduce dark spots to the roots.

7. Sheet mask (2-3 times a week)

With regular use, sheet mask can help hydrate the skin optimally while providing a good relaxing effect for facial skin.

8. Eye cream

The skin around the thin, sensitive eyes needs a special cream to help maintain firmness, disguise fine lines, and dark circles and eye bags appear reduced.

9. Night moisturizer

This product helps lock in all the moisture and nutrients that facial skin receives during night treatments, and helps regenerate facial skin cells during sleep.
