Typically, here at Fine Natural Hair and Faith, we talk exclusively about hair care (specifically for fine natural hair). I like to sprinkle in inspirational and motivational content surrounding the Christian faith as well. However, from time to time I do like to write about other personal care topics like what I’m about to share below: How to Build a Skin Care Routine that’s consistent.
Personal care is just that. Personal.
What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another. That’s why you want to develop and build your own routines, including finding the skin care products that support the health of your skin.
Now, with regard to creating a skin care routine, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
- What are the key elements to focus on for adequate skin care?
- What additional steps are you willing to take to go from adequate skin care to excellent skin care?
In the following video I walk you step by step through how I built my own skin care routine. Building a skin care routine is less about the particular products you use. It’s more about the methods.
Build a Daily and Weekly Skin Care Routine
Highlights from the video:
- my daily routine
- night time routine
- weekly routine (special treatments used only weekly)
- type of products (not brands) used
- 2 DIY face mask recipes
- checklist of the healthy skin care practices you should use daily (you’ll check off these items and over time notice if there’s a pattern of you skipping certain practices)
Tools for Healthy Skin Care
Aside from skin care products, there are other tools you can employ to foster a healthy skin care routine. I mentioned these in the video:
- Compressed Disposable Cotton Masks for Creating DIY Sheet Masks (super affordable and excellent quality for those who don’t want to keep buying sheet masks full of preservatives)
- Printable Skin Care Planner (this is great if you’re like me and prefer to use a paper planner. It can also be imported to an app like Good Notes for digital use)
It’s not difficult to build a skin care routine. You just need to think through and make note of what it is that your skin requires. It’s very similar to creating a hair care routine.
