How to Build The Best Skincare Routine for Day and Night

Establishing a proper skincare routine will help you better understand your skin and how to properly address your skin concerns. However, with so many innovative skincare products available today, it can be overwhelming trying to navigate your way through the plethora of cleansers, treatments, serums, essences, and more. Although the world of skincare is ever-growing, the basics of skincare remain the same; cleanse, treat, and moisturise. Let’s explore this further: 


Cleansing both day and night should be the first step in your skincare routine, as it washes away dirt, oil, and other impurities that can clog your pores and dull your skin. The ideal cleanser would be one that gently cleanses your skin without stripping its natural oils, even if your skin is oily. 


Treatments usually contain powerful ingredients to deeply penetrate the skin to treat it and are generally lighter in texture compared to moisturisers. For these reasons, treatments should be applied to freshly cleansed skin. This includes eye creams, face masks, serums, toners, and so on. 


Moisturisers focus on specific skin concerns and seal the treatments you’ve applied after cleansing. 

Now that we’ve laid down the basics, here’s what you need to build a skincare routine.

Building a Skincare Routine

Step 1: Cleansing

In the morning, gently rinse your face with warm water before continuing with a light cleanser of your choice. A gentle cleanser may be used both morning and evening to effectively clean the skin of impurities, without drying the skin or causing sensitivity.

Step 2: Treatments

Our range of clinically formulated serums and treatments is aimed at specific skin conditions for an intensive boost that accelerates skin health results. A morning treatment most people could benefit from is the Nimue Multi Rejuvenating Serum. This treatment has collagen-boosting properties, assisting in lifting and firming the skin and protecting against the ageing effects of free radical damage, resulting in a more even skin tone and healthy, radiant-looking skin. Browse our full range of treatments to find your ideal one.

Step 3: Moisturiser 

Once you’ve applied your treatments, follow with a moisturiser to protect the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. Day and night moisturisers specific to a particular skin condition should be used to improve the health of the skin.

After you have cleansed, treated and moisturised the skin, apply sunscreen to complete your daytime skincare routine. Your evening skincare routine will not include a sunscreen and will be complete after applying your moisturiser as the last step.

Stay Consistent

Good things come to those who wait, and the same is true of skincare routines. Expecting results right away is unrealistic because even the best skincare products need time to work. It usually takes at least three to four months to determine whether your new routine is effective, but if you maintain a regular, daily schedule, you can probably start seeing results in as little as six to twelve weeks.
