3 Essential Products For Skincare Newbies

Skincare can be intimidating, especially with all the steps going around, we’re looking at you 10-step skincare routine!

It can be difficult to get started if you don’t know exactly where to begin. With a variety of products out there, we’re spoiled for choice, but it also adds room for confusion.

For skincare newbies, it’s best to start slow and gradually build up your routine into something that suits your skin. Here are just three essentials to begin your skincare routine. It’s that simple. If Lisa Surihani only has three steps in her skincare routine, you can do it too!

1. Cleanser

You can start off, of course, by purchasing a cleanser that suits your skin type and skincare needs. For babes with oily skin, invest in Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser that has the right ingredients to soothe blemishes and reduce oil production. If you have sensitive skin, invest in a good bottle of Hada Labo Mild & Sensitive Skin Face Wash which won’t irritate your skin.

2. Moisturiser

Moisturiser hydrates the surface of your skin and penetrates deeper into the layers to heal, soothe and altogether rehydrate your skin from the inside out. As we spend most of our time in the air-conditioned environment every day, moisturiser is essential to replace the moisture lost through dry air. Try an oil-free moisturiser if you’re afraid it’ll activate the oil production in your skin or try this rich water-sleeping mask from Laneige.

3. Sunblock

According to an industry expert we interviewed, sunblock is an absolute essential in their skincare routines. Even celebrities like our very own Michelle Yeoh regretted not wearing more sunblock in her teen years. So, now you know what’s key! Sunblock is basically the best anti-ageing product there is out there so we’d suggest you give Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 a try.
