HOW TO START A SKINCARE ROUTINE
So you’re starting a new skincare routine. With all the options out there—and new products launching every day—finding the best skincare routine for you seems like an impossible task. But don’t worry, we’re here to make things simple, so you can find a streamlined skincare routine that’s as effective as it is a joy to use.
Step 1: Don’t panic
Before frantically Googling “what should my skincare routine be” and becoming overwhelmed, think about what your biggest skincare concerns are, and the benefits you want from your daily regimen. Are you looking for skincare for oily skin? The best skincare products for aging skin? Or maybe you want skincare for sensitive skin. No matter your concern, we have the solution.
Step 2: Choose a cleanser
Starting clean is key to getting the #OleGlow. And, let’s be honest, there’s nothing more refreshing or satisfying than washing the day (and dirt, oil and makeup) away. Now that you’ve figured out your skin concerns, here are some facial cleansers you might be into:
This mattifying oil control that purifies and reduces the look of pores—without stripping skin

Step 3: Pick a moisturizer
Hydrated skin is happy skin. Every skin type—even oily skin—needs moisture to function properly, and the key is to find the right formula for your skin type.

Step 4: Find a serum
This could be considered extra credit for skincare newbies, but if you really want to give your skin a boost, try a facial serum. Facial serums work with your cleanser and moisturizer to deliver additional skincare benefits. The best face serum strategy is to use one in the morning and one at night, so you’re tackling your skin concerns around the clock.
