It’s no secret that the only way to maintain a radiant complexion is an at-home skincare routine with the right products and tools. What’s lesser-known is that everyone should customize their routine for their skin type. A sensitive skincare routine can vary greatly from a skincare routine for dry skin. That may leave people wondering, “What kind of skincare routine should I use?” Don’t stress – we’re here to help! Read on to learn the best skincare routine for every skin type and learn which Skin Gym products and tools are your skin type’s go-to skin savers.
Pro tip: No matter which skincare routine suits you, always add a layer of sunscreen as the last step in your morning routine.
The Best Sensitive Skincare Routine
Those with sensitive skin should look for products that are gentle and fragrance-free. The Skin Camp Clutie Cleanser Brush is the perfect way to kick off your AM and PM sensitive skincare routine. The silicone pad and bristles remove dirt, grime, and impurities in your skin. This manual brush allows you to gently scrub your face without irritating it. After cleansing, use an alcohol-free, acid-free toner followed by serum and moisturizer. We recommend our Hydra-Youth Serum. It’s calming and hydrating and pairs perfectly with Glow Oil. This combo provides ultimate moisture while calming and illuminating your sensitive skin.
The Best Acne-Prone Skincare Routine
Keeping your pores clean and clear and removing excess oil is the mission for any acne skincare routine! Start by washing your face morning and night with the Cleania Sonic Cleansing Brush that boasts three adjustable speeds and will give your pores the deepest clean. Next, exfoliate with the Skin Camp Dermaplaning Tool to remove dead skin once a day to a few times a week, depending on your skin. If a pimple pops up, grab one of these Bye-Bye Zits Acne Patches during your nighttime routine. They stick on the pimple and are made with hydrocolloid and salicylic acid to minimize the blemish and irritation. Follow that with a serum for the rest of your face (glycolic or lactic during the day and retinol at night) and an oil-free moisturizer.
The Best Skincare Routine for Dry Skin
Your AM and PM routines for dry skin should be hydration stations and are almost identical! First, cleanse the face with a non-foaming cleanser. Then grab a moisturizing serum as the Hydra-Youth Serum packed with Hyaluronic Acid and other ingredients for intense hydration. Next up is moisturizer. For the daytime, try Skin Gym’s Signature Face Oil and use the Weekender Mask at night for extra moisturization. For an even bigger hydration boost, try the AfterParty Hydra-Gel Pink Mask twice a week right after cleansing morning and night, then continue with the rest of your routine.
The Best Skincare Routine for Combination Skin
Combination skin usually means you have an oily T-Zone while your forehead, cheeks, and chin are dry. A skincare routine for combination skin can seem tricky, but we’ve got you covered. Morning and evening wash your face with a cleansing gel, followed by a toner with skin balancing ingredients like witch hazel. In the AM, grab a serum with AHA or BHA to minimize pores and brighten the skin. In the PM reach for a product with Retinol like Youth Haus 24k Golden Glow mask to renew your skin. Finish your routine with a lightweight moisturizer during the day and a light oil (so you won’t break out) like the Glow Oil at night.
The Best Anti-Aging Skincare Routine
Preventative skincare is your best weapon to defeat anti-aging and the ingredients in your routine make all the difference in promoting collagen production and preventing fine lines. Morning and night, start with a soothing, clarifying cleanser. Twice a week, exfoliate as your next step. One of our favs is the Skin Gym Microfusion Dissolving Hyaluronic Roller. Next, use a serum chock full of anti-aging ingredients twice a day. We love the Face Trainer Serum packed with antioxidants like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and pomegranate extract. A few times a week (AM or PM) use an eye treatment like Royal Black Diamond Eye Patches to give them a youthful radiant glow. In the evening, use a Retinol product and follow that up with a moisturizer like Signature Face Oil which is full of antioxidants, omegas, and vitamin A and E.
The Best Skincare Routine for Mature Skin
Mature skin is often overlooked but it still deserves to be beautiful. Morning and night, start with a gentle cleanser. Exfoliation a few times a week is still essential at this stage of your skin’s life¾ and there’s no more gentle (or enjoyable) way to exfoliate than with the Skin Camp LITS Facial Massager. Next, grab your favorite Vitamin C Serum like Face Trainer which contains an antioxidant anti-aging cocktail or Hydra-Youth to give you mega-moisture and rejuvenate the skin. Then grab your favorite Retinol product of choice and apply that before finishing off with major moisture and plumping with the Weekender Mask or our luminous Glow Oil.
