For healthy glowing skin, a proper skin care routine is very important. 50% of the people don’t know how to take care of their skin and those who are aware do not know the correct order. That is why most skincare fails.  

But, don’t worry we are here to help you and have your back. In this blog post, we will guide you to navigate the 7 steps of your skincare routine in the correct order. Following that order will give you glowing skin. So, let’s get into the guide:

1.  Cleanser

The first and most important step in the skin care routine is cleansing your skin. The cleanser will remove every type of dirt and oil from the skin and deeply clean the skin. A cleanser is also great for removing makeup. Now, there are different types of cleansers for different types of skin on the market.



If you have oily skin you need to use a cleanser that absorbs oil. Similarly, if you have dry skin you need to use a cleaner that moisturizes your skinAlso, you need to massage the cleanser in a circular and upward direction. Cleansing is best every day to keep skin healthy and clean. No matter which cleanser you use you need to exfoliate your skin with it for 2 to 3 minutes but gently with soft hands.

2.  Toner

The second step is the toner. Now, what do toners do?




They restore the PH of your skin. Toners will remove the leftover particles of cleaner from your skin. Most people skip this step but it is very beneficial. Because low PH levels can make your skin dry, oily, and irritated. The best way to apply toner is to use a reusable cotton pad.

3.  Serum

The third step is to apply the serum. Like cleaners, there are many different types of serums for different types of skins and different types of purposes. There are anti-aging, vitamin C, and Hyaluronic acid.




The serums contain the ingredients like antioxidants and peptides that play a great role in a skin care routine. The serums improve skin elasticity and lighten skin texture which is why they are so popular. The serums can penetrate the skin and give a hydrating look. People mostly apply it before the makeup in order to achieve a glowing look. 

4.  Eye Cream

Under the eye, areas are also a part of your face and need equal care and protection. That is why eye cream is also a mandatory part of a skincare routine.

Eye cream will revitalize your skin's eye area by reducing dark circles and puffiness. Sometimes dark circles can be a genetic condition but using eye cream can help reduce it.
5.  Spot treatment

In order to prevent yourself from acne marks spot treatment is a good precautionary measure you can add to your skincare routine.

Spot treatment


A common and popular spot treatment is benzoyl. But remember one thing: never apply any spot treatment on your dry skin, it will make your skin more dry. By the spot treatment we mean you can use any cream that your dermatologist has suggested to you.

6. Face Moisturiser

Moisturizer is a mandatory thing no matter what your skin type or gender is. Even if your skin type is oily, you still have to apply the moisturizer. Moisturizers will not only prevent your skin from dryness but will also reduce fine lines.


 Also, moisturizers will keep your skin hydrated and smooth. But remember one thing, not every moisturizer is good for every skin type. You need to choose the one that suits your skin type. And in order to choose the right moisturiser you need to first identify your skin type

7.  Sunscreen

Last but not least is sunscreen. Sunscreens cannot be removed from the skincare routine at any cost whether you are inside or outside. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the mirrors that are used in your cars and homes can block the UVB rays but not the UVA rays that can be responsible for the skin damage.



 That is why sunscreens are essential in the skincare routine that will not protect your skin from harmful rays but will prevent your body from tanning. Even if you use makeup, you still have to apply sunscreen on top of it. Apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before going out. After that, apply sunscreen every 2 hours.

Healthy skincare is very important no matter what age you are. But many people are not aware of the right skincare routine. Follow the above skincare routine order and do share with us the difference you feel in your skin. The above-recommended skin care is best for all skin types.
