Where to start is probably one of the most common questions I get asked about by my clients, and for me finding out about their current skin care routine answers many questions, but before anyone starts to focus on an achievable skin care routine then they need to go through everything they own, cleansers, toners, exfoliators, masks and moisturisers. It really doesnt’ matter if you don’t use them all what actually does matter is that you create a skin care routine that you are happy with and gets you results! So where do you start?
- Empty cupboards/draws/shelves of cleansers, toners, exfoliators, masks and moisturisers.
- Check expiry dates, if out of date then throw away.
- Does it work? if the product isn’t getting you the results you want then either give away or throw away.
- See what you need? Whats left when you have sorted out what you do have, Basics! a cleanser and a moisturiser are the minimum required.
So this is where we start, once we have cleared the cupboards its time to learn what we need to do next!
