How to Build the Best Skincare Routine
How many of you reading this have no idea, or maybe some idea, of the correct way to apply all the skincare products you have sitting in your bathroom cabinets? Like what comes first the serum or the toner? Oh, wait, a face oil? Does that come before or after moisturizer? If you never knew that there is indeed a correct order to apply all these products, you definitely aren’t alone. In fact, did you know that if you don’t layer your products in the right way, or if you use the wrong moisturizer with, say, the wrong toner, you could either render them totally ineffective or, worse: hard-core irritate your face? Don’t stress, we are here to give you the exact steps for both your morning and night skincare routine so you aren’t guessing any longer!
Now, let’s first dive into the morning skincare routine steps. It’s very important to note that the AM and PM routines differ and the differences are important steps that you don’t want to be missing. For example, the AM routine includes sunscreen being applied after the moisturizer, while the PM routine does not include sunscreen as you are heading to bed. Sunscreen is arguably the most important step in the AM skincare routine, followed by makeup and primer to finish your look. While the nighttime skincare routine steps include steps like removing your makeup and night cream (steps you wouldn’t be needing to do in the morning).
An incredible serum to add to your morning skincare routine is MintPear’s Coffee Eye Serum.
This basically checks both the step 3 and 4 boxes and boosts your natural collagen and elastin for a brighter, younger-looking eye area. This energizing serum de-puffs boosts circulation and brightens dark circles around the eye area. You’ll have everyone fooled into thinking you’ve just had the best sleep of your life with this amazing serum. The main ingredient is Coffee Bean Oil, which is full of caffeine and antioxidants that decreases inflammation, puffy eyes, and acne. MintPear’s Coffee Eye Serum works to decrease wrinkles and ease sore muscles. It even works to treat cellulite and signs of aging.
The PM skincare routine steps are going to look pretty similar to the AM steps, the main difference being makeup. You have makeup on from the day and removing that makeup is crucial to starting your healthy skincare routine before cleansing with your usual facial cleanser. Another change you will see in the last step being a lip mask. Now, this is optional, but for super soft kissable lips, I highly recommend adding a lip mask to your PM routine.
An amazing serum to add to your nighttime skincare routine is MintPear’s Rosehip Night Serum.
MintPear’s Rosehip Night Serum is an all-natural, pure, and organic nighttime treatment to repair and heal your skin’s texture, and overall appearance. Rosehip Oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes and is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that work wonders for your skin. Not only do the fatty acids and Vitamin A in Rosehip Oil moisturize the skin, but they also promote skin regeneration, and can improve skin flexibility and permeability. This means that Rosehip Oil products can improve skin texture and even reduce the appearance of acne scars or stretch marks. Scientific studies showing Rosehip Oil’s promise make it an intriguing option for anyone looking to reduce the visible signs of aging, clear up scarring, or otherwise improve their skincare routine.
