Your at-home skincare routine is a must for maintaining glowing and healthy skin, which means it’s imperative to make sure that you have all your bases covered. Today we’re sharing our most favorite tips for improving your skin care routine at home!

Don’t overdo it on products

Sometimes the more product you use, the more skin problems you are likely to have. Simplify your routine so you are only getting what you really need out of your skincare. There should be a distinct, beneficial reason for each of the products that you use, so be sure to choose wisely.

Also consider if you are using your great products too often. You might be using products that are each built to do the same things for your skin, which is an easy way to overdo it. It’s important to get comfortable with reading skincare labels and knowing which ingredients are in each. That way you are applying only what you need and not doubling up on ingredients.

Professional treatments should be done by professionals

While it might be tempting to cut some corners and try out treatments at home, it’s always best to get these done by a professional. Without a professional, treatments can be done incorrectly and there could be safety protocols that you’re missing.

Many professional skincare treatments should be single use as well, which isn’t common with at home product offerings. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry with your skincare.

Be skeptical about products

When done right, the marketing on certain products can be incredibly convincing. Be skeptical about what certain products really have to offer and be sure that what they’re marketing is really true.

For example, a product may be marketed as ‘clean,’ but you want to double check what this really means.

Keep an open mind

The thing about skincare routines is there are really no set rules on how to do them. Skincare is constantly changing, and the more we learn the more we become aware of what to switch up and what will work best. Keep an open mind when it comes to your skincare routine and always do your best to make informed decisions!
