How To Create Your Organic Skin Care Routine

How to create your own organic skin care routine?

 

If you are new to skincare, or if you already have a routine, but you want, and you feel ready to make a move to natural products, or if you want to change things up as the new season approaches, choosing new products and building a routine can be a bit intimidating. Especially with all that good and bad information available online. How can one know where to start?

Whatever your reason for changing or rethinking your skincare routine might be, you are probably feeling a bit torn and overwhelmed with all the choices available. We are here to free you of all the guesswork about your new organic skincare routine — this Skincare 101 to answer your most frequently asked questions.

 

What's your skin type?

The perfect skincare routine is going to focus on the long term health of your skin. Therefore, the first step in building the best possible routine for your skin is to determine what your skin type is. Your skin type will determine the exact needs and requirements of your skin. The perfect skincare routine is the one that works to balance the function of your skin and regulates it so that it errs towards neither oily nor dry- the golden middle is what you are striving for. For a more in-depth look at the primary skin types, check out this easy guide we made.

 

What skincare products do you need?

It is important to note that every person's needs are going to be different, but there are some essential products that everyone can benefit from using daily. Those products are:

  • Cleanser
  • Moisturizer
  • Serum or oil
  • SPF

The choice of specific serums, cleansers, oils, and moisturizers depends on your skin type. If you are not sure about your skin type, here is where you can determine it.

 

Depending on your skin type, your skin problems, and your lifestyle, you might benefit from the daily usage of some additional products. Those products are:

 

  • Makeup remover/oil cleanser (if you wear makeup daily, you should use this at night to remove all the makeup without dragging and stressing the skin)
  • Toner (if your skin is oily, in specific areas or all over)
  • Eye cream (for those with mature skin, this is non-negotiable. Yu can also use an eye cream as a preventative aging treatment)
  • Spot treatment (if you are prone to breakouts, this one is great to have on hand)

 

Your skin will benefit from you using these products twice a week, regardless of its type:

  • Exfoliants
  • Face masks

Again, the specific kind of exfoliants and face masks will significantly depend on your skin type and skin needs.

 

In what order should the skincare products be applied?

There's a simple rule of thumb you should know before we break down the exact order in which you should apply your products in the morning and at night. Here is how it goes: apply your products from the thinnest, most fluid (watery) consistency through to the thickest.

Removing your makeup and cleansing your face should always come first, and then from there, you can apply all of your skincare products. On top of that, you should always wait for about a minute before you move to the next step. This will ensure that your skin has time to absorb all the benefits!

Here is the order in which you should work through your new daily skincare routine.

 

In the morning:

  • Cleanse
  • Tone (this step is optional, but is recommended if you have oily skin)
  • Apply serum or oil
  • Apply eye cream (gently!)
  • Moisturize
  • Apply your sun protection
  • Makeup (if you opt for wearing any)

 

 

At the evening:

  • Remove makeup (if you are wearing any)
  • Exfoliate (twice a week)
  • Mask (twice a week)
  • Tone (this step is optional, but is recommended if you have oily skin)
  • Apply serum or oil
  • Apply eye cream (gently!)
  • Moisturize or apply rich night cream
  • Apply spot treatment if necessary
