Let’s face it—keeping up good skin habits is easier said than done. Not only are there endless facial products to choose from—skin cleanser, face cream, mist, oil, mask...you name it—but the frequency and order each product is applied makes a difference in how well they work for your skin (when should you use a serum, anyway?). Add your unique skincare concerns on top of all those options and suddenly sticking to a routine seems like a lot of work. Still, the key to maintaining the natural health and beauty of your skin is a consistent skin care routine that’s right for your skin type. Thankfully, the best skincare sets can help eliminate some of the guesswork and get you on track to your healthiest complexion yet.
A skincare kit can make your beauty regimen easier to manage when you choose the best one for your skin concerns. For example, if you have oily skin and frequent breakouts, make sure your skin care set is focused on acne treatment. Look for an acne repair kit that includes an oil-free face wash, lightweight face moisturizer, and a deep pore cleanser—like a charcoal mask—for targeted pimple treatment. For sensitive skin, opt for more natural skin care products made with ultra-gentle ingredients. Organic skin care can help eliminate synthetic fragrances or other ingredients that might cause irritation. Or, if you’re worried about dryness and future damage, try a skincare kit with anti-aging products that replenish lost moisture with a ultra-hydrating, anti-aging treatments like an active-infused facial cleanser, powerful oil, rich moisturizer, and anti-aging serum.
Once you’ve narrowed down which skincare set is right for your skin type and concerns, putting it to work to reveal your healthiest complexion is easy. The products in a skincare set are selected to work together to give your skin the nutrients and care it craves. Depending on which products are included in your kit, start with the face wash first, then follow with toner to remove makeup and impurities and prep your skin for maximum absorption. When it comes to layering the remaining products, a good rule of thumb to follow is start with the lightest weight product and build up. This means pat on your serum first, followed by an oil if you’re using one, and finish with moisturizer to rehydrate the skin seal in the nutritional benefits of the previous products.
