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:

 

Oily skin

Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser

Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser

This mattifying oil control that purifies and reduces the look of pores—without stripping skin

 

Dry and sensitive skin

Wonderfeel™ Double Cleanser

It’s like a cold cream reinvented: This one-step double cleanser that gently sweeps away longwear and waterproof makeup

 

Normal skin

The Clean Truth® Foaming Cleanser

This frothy, antioxidant-rich facial cleanser invigorates as it removes makeup, oil and impurities

 

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.

 

Oily skin

Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator

This facial moisturizer fights shine, reduces the look of pores, and even improves foundation wear for up to 8 hours

 

Dry and sensitive skin

Nurture Me® Moisturizing Crème

This rich crème delivers intense hydration and reduces visible redness

 

Brightening

C-Rush™ Brightening Gel Crème

This 24-hour rush of moisture instantly brightens, firms and targets fine lines and wrinkles

 

Smoothing

Sheer Transformation® Perfecting Moisturizer

This whipped, silky crème evens skin tone, smoothes texture and improves the look of dark spots, for weightless hydration and luminous perfection.

 

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.

 

Daytime

Truth Serum®

Our #1 bestselling and most-loved serum, this vitamin C serum for face brightens, firms and hydrates all day

 

Nighttime

Invigorating Night Transformation™ Gel

Redefine your beauty sleep: This retexturizing facial serum evens skin tone, smoothes texture and works overnight to visibly refine skin

 

Step 5: Take a shortcut

You could make life simpler for yourself and pick up the 3 Little Wonders® set. Developed to address all major skincare concerns, this professional-strength morning and night regimen takes the guesswork out of finding the best skincare routine for you. Just add a facial cleanser and it’s all systems glow.
