A good skincare routine will be most beneficial for your skin and its upkeep. A good routine should include;
Exfoliation: This process gets rid of dead skin cells, leaving your skin healthy. Overdoing it leads to the skin producing excessive oil. It is therefore recommended to do it only once a week.
Sun Protection: Wearing an SPF helps to protect your skin from sun damage. Sun damage causes the skin to be dull, dry, aged and pigmented. So wearing sunscreen is important, even when it is not that sunny out!
Hydration: Perfect skin is nourished by drinking lots of fluids, including electrolytes. Dehydration leads to dry, dull, and itchy skin

This is a more advanced skincare routine that can help you gain even better results.
Double Cleanse: Remove dirt, makeup, and oil by cleaning your face twice. According to Skincare Heaven owner Deborah Mitchell, double cleansing ensures that you reach deep into the skin pores.
Toner: This balances your complexion by replacing nutrients to the skin removed by cleansers.
Vitamin C: The serum is applied after you have cleansed and toned your skin in the morning. It can help to protect your skin from sun damage. In the process, a well-balanced complexion is achieved.
