The skincare routine is crucial in every woman’s regimen. Whether you actively use one or you are too lazy to assert one, you have a routine. Mine is definitely the latter. I do not do anything special. In my 20s, I was so precise. I had a total Lancôme routine that cost over $480 dollars. Now, in my 30s, when it counts so much more, I use any soap available, whether Irish Spring, Dove or Dial antibacterial hand soap. Clean skin is healthy skin to me, but as I am becoming more and more aware of my lack of a skincare routine and the fact that my time to not care is running out, I am paying attention to what works for the people around me as I strive to build one of my own.
One way to take note of skincare routines is to keep your ear to the ground around those used by celebrities and influencers alike. They get a lot of samples and are able to utilize trial and error to find the perfect routine that works for them. Their job relies on the fact that they are able to present their best selves to the world. So using them as a guideline is a good start. Of course, every skincare routine is catered to each person’s need. Something that works for one, may not work for another. So be careful to not take anyone’s recommendation as biblical and instead, be open to fine tuning techniques from here and routines from there to create the perfect regimen fro you!
