Why is having a skin care routine important?

So many people seem to be neglecting their face by either not washing it with face wash products or just not even washing it at all. A lot of people don’t understand that the skin on your face is so much more sensitive than that of the skin anywhere else on your body and it needs to be protected. This means not just washing your face once in a blue moon but having a full routine that is followed through in the morning and the evening.

Some of the best benefits that come from a skincare routine are: slowing down the aging process, reducing acne breakouts, making the skin feel softer and cleaner, and just reducing any risk of infection from bacteria, according to Misumi Skincare, a luxury skincare retailer with products for a clearer, healthier skin. It can also protect your skin from sun damage by incorporating a sunscreen or SPF.

Cleanse and exfoliate

The most popular step in any skincare routine and probably the most crucial of them all is the cleansing step. Cleanser is used to wash your face and remove any of the excess oils produced by your face as well as all of the grime, dirt and sweat build up from the face. When cleansing you allow for your skin to breathe and your pores to be cleaned out.

It is so important to make use of a cleanser that is both and actual cleanser designed for face skin as well as a cleanser that is suited to you skin type, otherwise you might still end up with unwanted results.

Exfoliating is a step that a lot of people tend to skip out on. Essentially, it is a way of removing all of the dead skin cells from your face and keeping is young and clear. It is also a great way to reduce risk of acne and promotes healing of the skin.

Typically, after washing your face, people forget to moisturize. This is something that should be avoided as much as possible. When cleansing your face, the cleanser will strip the natural oils from your skin along with all the bad oils or excess oils, this means that you skin has no way of hydrating itself. This is where moisturizes comes in.

A good moisturizer that is suited to your skin type will add hydration to you skin in the most appropriate proportions and quantities, leaving your skin not feeling tight and making sure that that it keeps it elasticity for as long as possible.


Of all the things you should be adding in to your skin care routine, this is one that is most often left out. Sunscreen or SPF is vital when it comes to your morning time skin care routine as the san can be very vicious be it hot or cold outside. By protecting your skin from the sun you can actively try to avoid any kind of skin damage or even skin cancer. Sunscreen should be a staple in everyone’s skincare routine no matter who you are.
