1. Cleanse

Whether you’re getting ready to start the day or washing the city off your face, cleansing always comes first. Opt for a refreshing cleansing cloth.

2. Exfoliate (1-2 times per week)

Exfoliating once or twice a week will keep your complexion in check by sloughing away dead skin and dullness.

3. Tone

You need this to help absorb serums and moisturizers.

4. Apply serum(s)

If you’re new to serums, you should know that serums are chock full of powerful ingredients (antixoidants, cermaides, hyaluronic acid to name a few). The application is less smearing and more of a gentle “pat” so that the formula can really penetrate into your skin.

5. Apply eye cream

Before you color correct or conceal, lightly tap on a moisturizing eye cream. Applying eye cream will also help smooth the way for makeup.

6. Moisturize

Makeup or no makeup, moisturizer is like a tall glass of water for your skin.

7. SPF

If you’re not big on beauty products or are just looking for some core essentials then know this: never walk out the door without a layer of SPF. There are so many different ways you can wear sunscreen these days.
