Let’s get started!
1. Learn the fundamentals of building a routine
Before you can put together your own routine, it’s imperative to know a couple of things:
Why the heck do you need one at all?
What are the core steps every routine is built around?
How should you approach choosing products?
2. Find out your skin type
Identifying your skin type now means you can make more informed choices when it comes to choosing the best products that are right for you and will get you closer to your skin care goals.
3. Determine your skin issues
Before you can tackle a specific skin problem like acne and ageing, you need to be sure of what you’re dealing with. Sometimes there are nuances to a condition that make a huge difference to how you should treat it and the products you’ll need to add to your arsenal.
Find out exactly what your skin issues are by choosing from the options below.
4. Treat your skin issues
Now you know what you’re dealing with, it time to find out how. The treatment or ‘actives’ step in your routine is where your creativity can really shine and you can mix and match effective ingredients to skyrocket your skin to new heights.
Use the guides below to help you find the right products to effectively deal with your own unique combination of skin issues.
5. Finalise and implement your routine and stick to it
That’s all the routine planning sorted – but we’re not done yet. Especially if this is your first foray into a consistent daily skin care routine, it’s imperative that you are strict with yourself so it becomes habitual.
If (read: when) you forget to do your routine in your rush to work or school or can’t remember what steps go where, these articles should help.

It essential to accept that things won’t always go to plan. Your skin might dislike a new product, or you just might not see the results you hoped for.
Below are some resources to help you identify where these problems lie so you can get to the bottom of it and move on faster.
