Before applying any of your products, it is important to have a clean pallet. Your skin and hands should be cleansed and dried.


While a toner is not a necessary step in your routine, it does remove impurities as your cleanser does. Consider this an additional step in your cleansing process.


Serums are extremely concentrated in either nutrients, hydrators, and antioxidants. They vary in their ingredients and, for this reason, they also vary in what they accomplish.

For example, a Vitamin C Serum provides anti-aging and skin tone evening benefits. Depending on your skincare goals, adding the right serum can enhance any routine.


A moisturizer is a critical step to any routine especially in dry climates. Even if your skin is normally oily, it is important to still moisturize to reduce the potential for overproducing sebum to compensate for dehydrated skin.

Eye cream

While not a necessary step, adding an eye cream may also be worthwhile depending on your skincare goals. Individuals with dark circles or dry eyes would benefit from adding this step.

The finishing step in the AM: Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an absolutely critical step in your morning routine. Sunscreen is one of the best ways to slow the aging process as it protects your skin from harmful UV rays.

The finishing step in the PM: Overnight Mask

A leave-on mask is an excellent way to restore the skin from what it has been exposed to throughout the day. It also locks in the ingredients used earlier in your routine.
