Building A Healthy Routine For Rejuvenated Skin

There are a dizzying number of opinions when it comes to skin care. You are probably always confused about what exactly you should know about moisturization and how to protect yourself from UV rays. Great skin care is not just about genetics, but also majorly about our daily habits. Caring for your skin is simply personal, but it is also essential. It is important to understand the combination of skin care & cosmetics, starting from the facial cleanser you use in the morning to the blusher you apply.


We cannot emphasize enough on the fact that a great skin care routine starts with knowing your skin type. Skin care products that are one size fits all rarely work, and it’s because your skin needs customized products and solutions based on your skin type. Do you have dry, oily, combination, or sensitive skin? Let us help you with a few common tips:

  • Oily Skin: You know your skin is oily when it tends to be shiny with larger pores. Mostly, oily skin is more prone to blackheads & blemishes.
  • Dry Skin: People with dry skin often experience tight skin, especially after cleansing. The skin is more prone to flaking, redness, and fine wrinkles.
  • Normal/Combination Skin: This skin type has medium-sized pores and tends to have a smooth & even texture. Oily areas tend to be in the t-zone, while dryness usually appears around the cheeks.
  • Sensitive Skin: It is more delicate, thin, and usually have fine pores. The skin is easily irritated, causing allergic reactions such as a rash.

After figuring out your skin type, it is always easy to build an ideal skin care routine, customize your skin needs, and add to your cart!


The main goal in your skin care routine comes down to a few simple things. It is important to keep your skin looking and feeling its best, prevent further damage to your skin, help repair past superficial damage to the skin, and minimize irritation. It’s about creating a strong foundation for your basic skincare routine.

1) Cleansing

Let’s talk about why facial cleansing is so important for the morning as well as night skin care routine. We already know that facial cleansing is the most popular first step in everyone’s daily skincare routine. It is found that regular cleansing is the key to maintaining healthy looking and radiant skin. A common benefit of facial cleansing is removing oil, dirt, and other unwanted elements on the face. In addition, cleansing helps boost hydration & deeply nourishes the skin. Excessive dirt buildup on the skin’s surface can cause blockages of the pores, which allows bacteria to penetrate, causing inflammation, which in turn can cause acne. To avoid such circumstances, it is vital to cleanse morning, night, and after exercising.

What Is Cleansing?

Cleansers or Face Wash are created to refresh & clean your skin. It is used to remove build-up of dirt, makeup, oils, dead skin cells, and more! The main focus is to clean your skin without stripping the necessary layers of skin & making it feel dry. Generally, cleansers with the right blend of ingredients are more moisturizing and hydrating. We recommend you to try Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Face Wash. It gently cleanses the skin and is infused with acne busters to promote healthy, clear skin. It helps leave the skin clean, hydrated, and balanced. It is gentle and soothing and calms the irritated and inflamed skin. This mild Face Wash helps brighten the complexion and adds suppleness to the skin.  

How Often Should You Cleanse?

Generally, one should shoot for washing the face once in the morning and once during your nighttime skincare routine. Cleanse your face after a workout to prevent acne breakouts and clogged pores. Pay attention to your skin as excessive cleansing can lead to skin irritation.

How To Cleanse?

Identify what kind of skin type you have. Knowing whether your skin is dry, oily, or normal will help discover what type of product works best for you. Look at product directions to better understand the proper application of the face wash, as products can vary in application. After applying the product and rinsing, pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

2) Toner

A skin toner’s effectiveness can vary from product to product. In general, their purpose is to enhance the skin’s surface by unclogging pores, helping add essential ingredients, hydrating the skin, and providing additional cleansing.

What Is A Toner?

After cleansing and removing unwanted elements or makeup on your face, toners provide a healthy layer to absorb the rest of your skincare products better. Toners also help in providing additional nutrients to the skin. They are mistakenly thought of as optional but can be a good way for added replenishment to your skin. Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Face Toner helps manage the skin’s oil production and replenish the hydration and minimize the acne-prone and oily skin problems. Its clarifying effect rids the skin of product residues and dead skin cells, clears the pores, and refreshes the skin. It has a cooling and calming effect and rejuvenates dull and tired skin.

When To Apply Toner?

A toner should be applied after your facial cleanse. Cleanse your face first to remove any unwanted elements or makeup. Rinse well, then dry your face with a clean towel. Finally, apply a toner.

How To Apply Toner?

Applying the toner can vary depending on the product. Generally toners can be applied with a soft pad or cotton ball. Soak the pad or cotton ball with toner to ensure it is damp but not soaking wet. Gently spread the toner on your face and neck using the pad or cotton ball. Avoid the eye area and lips. Pay special attention to the hard-to-reach areas such as the eyebrows, hairline, and nose sides.

3) Serum

This step has recently seen the biggest surge. Serums are typically recommended for those looking to go the extra mile to repair and protect to get younger, healthier-looking skin.

How To Apply Serum?

Moisturizers are classified as the essential skincare product.

See product for the amount of moisturizer to apply, as this can vary depending on product consistency.
