A skincare routine is essential to having and maintaining effortlessly radiant skin. Consistency is key to having clear, vibrant skin. If you don’t wash your face every day or apply sunscreen, this puts you at a greater risk for not following all the necessary skincare steps that will help you achieve better skin.
At BB Aesthetic, we know how difficult it can be to find quality, effective skincare products with proven results. That’s why we offer a wide range of skincare products to help you have quality skincare products for nearly every step of your skincare routine.
After reading this post, you’ll have a greater understanding of all the essential skincare steps you should consider following to have beautiful, hydrated skin.
Skincare Morning Routine
We highly recommend having a skincare morning routine to clean, hydrate, and protect your face. Below are the top 6 morning skincare steps to achieve hydrated, dewy skin that lasts.
Try a gentle cleanser if you don’t already. A cleanser will leave your face feeling fresh and clean to start the day off right. If you don’t wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser, this puts you at risk for annoying breakouts.
We offer a wide range of cleansers for all different skin types. Consider trying the ZO Skin Health Gentle Cleanser. It works with all skin types and gently leaves you with a clean face.
Next, we recommend using a toner that will act to gently refresh and clean your face from any leftover bacteria that your cleanser may have missed.
We offer the ZO Skin Health Calming Toner that helps refresh and balance your complexion.
Serums help deliver a variety of quality ingredients, from Vitamin C to ferulic acid, that help your skin look hydrated and glowy throughout your day. Some serums are also great for targeting signs of aging, for a more youthful appearance.
Try using ZO Skin Health’s Daily Power Defense which is a strong antioxidant serum that improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing your skin’s health.
4. Eye Cream
Eye cream is another essential skincare step to have youthful, hydrated-looking eyes in the morning, even if you just woke up! Eye creams help moisturize and tighten the under-eye area. This helps with reducing the look of dark circles, puffiness, and redness.
We recommend using the ZO Skin Health Eye Brightening Crème for both day and night.
Hydration is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Therefore, if you don’t already, consider using a moisturizer as part of your skincare morning routine.
Need a recommendation? We love the Alastin Skincare’s Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer. This provides you with the hydration you need for effortlessly glowing skin.
Applying a facial sunscreen is another highly recommended skincare step. This is because, throughout the day, you are constantly exposed to sunlight. No matter if you work in the office all day, at some point, the Sun’s UV rays are likely to hit your face. Therefore, you should consider protecting your skin, even if you don’t go outside much. Otherwise, Sun damage over time can cause unwanted Sun spots, wrinkles, and many other negative skin consequences.
We highly recommend using our ZO Skin Health Daily Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 to protect your skin.
Skincare Night Routine
After a long day’s work, it’s just as important you follow a consistent skincare night routine so you wake up the next morning with clean, fresh skin. Below are the top 9 nightly skincare routine steps you should consider trying for hydrated, clean skin.
1. Makeup Remover
We recommend the first nightly skincare step you do is remove all your face and eye makeup. This is to ensure you have a relatively clean face, free from any makeup, to start your skincare night routine off right.
Next, just like in your morning routine, you will want to use a gentle cleanser to remove any excess bacteria you may have after your day’s adventures.
Again, we recommend using the ZO Skin Health Gentle Cleanser as it works great with all skin types at leaving you with effortlessly clean skin. Or, consider using the Skin Better Cleansing Gel which also helps remove makeup.
3. Exfoliator (biweekly)
Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells on your face and is another night skincare step you should consider doing if you don’t already. However, you should only be exfoliating about twice a week. Otherwise, over-exfoliating your skin will leave your skin feeling extremely dry, red, and irritated. With that being said, if you gently exfoliate every few days, you’ll notice just how smooth and refreshed your skin feels.
We offer ZO Skin Health’s Exfoliating Polish to gently remove dead skin cells for smoother skin.
Consider trying a toner as part of your nightly skin routine. Just like in the morning, a toner helps clean any excess dirt and bacteria on your face while also hydrating your face to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
We offer the ZO Skin Health Calming Toner that helps refresh and balance your complexion if you are in need of a high-quality toner.
Serums are another skincare step you should consider using both day and night. Serums are power-packed with a variety of essential vitamins and nutrients to make your face look and feel hydrated and glowing.
Consider using ZO Skin Health’s Daily Power Defense which is a strong antioxidant serum that improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing your skin’s health.
6. Eye Cream
Applying an eye cream at night is another helpful nightly skincare step that will help keep your under-eyes feeling hydrated and refreshed all night long.
We recommend using our ZO Skin Health Eye Brightening Crème both day and night for hydrated under-eyes.
Retinol is another nightly skincare step we recommend you try to prevent signs of aging and have more youthful skin. Retinol helps reduce the look of fine lines, increases your skin’s collagen and elastin production (making for more youthful skin!), and helps unclog and decrease pores.
We highly recommend our ZO Skin Health Retinol Skin Brightener as a go-to retinol skincare product.
Hydration is key to glowing, clear skin. Moisturizing at night will help your skin lock in moisture to stay hydrated all night long. Therefore, we recommend applying moisturizer both day and night.
We offer Alastin Skincare’s Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer which provides you with the hydration you need for effortlessly glowing skin.
9. Spot Treatment
Finally, if you are struggling with breakouts, consider applying a spot treatment as the last step in your nightly skincare routine. A spot treatment will help fight breakouts to achieve clearer skin.
