SkynCare: A Beginners Guide

November 10, 2022

It feels like almost every year there are countless products being plastered on the shelves claiming they’re the best of the best. But are they reeeaallyyy the best? And if you are like most and barely starting your journey into the skincare realm, please don’t be fooled. Let us help you by guiding you in the right direction on deciding what products you will need to start your new and exciting journey. If you follow these simple steps, trust us, you will not fail.  It’s literally as simple as one, two, three, hence there are three steps to start. Now, after you master these simple steps, you can then incorporate other products to target more specific skin care needs.

Step 1: Cleanse

The general guideline in any skincare routine, especially when starting off, is to cleanse your skin at least twice a day, in the morning and at night. Even if you skip the morning cleanse, whatever you do DO NOT, I repeat do not skip cleansing in the evening. It is extremely important to remove the makeup, oil and the debris from the day. Here’s one of our favorites to start off with. 

Step 2: Moisturize 

Now, let’s bring back that moisture and hydrate your skin. Moisturizing can protect your skin’s barrier from damage, whether you have dry or oily skin this second step is still vital in your skin care routine. Try Fitish’s Dewing It Moisturizer to help start building your product collection. 

Step 3: Protect 

Let’s say you have followed all our basic recommendations, you’re almost to the finish line and we’re beyond proud. Now the most important step in keeping your skin protected, you probably guessed it already but it’s to apply sunscreen. We recommend anything with SPF 30 or above, this will be your shield against bringing any unwanted sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Try one of our favorites:   

Once you have locked these three steps down and are ready to add more to your collection to beautifying your skin, try adding any facial serums and masks or better yet come and consult with one of our providers today at Skyn Lab.

 After all, a professional recommendation won’t hurt AND our consultations are complimentary ☺️ Just try to remember a couple of things when starting your new journey after all we don’t want you to be stressed, this should be an exciting time for you!

  • Consistency Is Key – If you want to see results stick to your routine as much as you can, day and night. 
  • Have Patience – Some products might not work for you and that’s okay, don’t be alarmed if you’re not seeing results right away. If push comes to shove, try a completely new product, maybe that’s adding a serum or perhaps it’s eliminating it all together, just be patient. 
  • Less IS More – Don’t think you need more product to get the best results, a pea size can actually be beneficial, afterall we don’t want to waste it. 

And when in doubt, we would love to see your beautiful face at Skyn Lab. Come in and consult with one of our providers, see what they recommend and how we can help you achieve your skincare goals.
