Daily Skincare Routine for Glowing Skin

skin care steps

Gather all the above products and get ready to have the best skin with an effective skincare routine. Below is a simple skincare routine to achieve the skin that people cannot stop staring at that too on the budget  –

  • Use makeup remover to wipe off all visible makeup from your skin. Do it twice if you have put on heavy makeup.
  • Next, use a cleanser to wash off the remaining products to get a 100% clean face.
  • Now, apply an anti-aging cream and keep rubbing smoothly until the skin absorbs it.
  • Since serums are heavier and usually oil-based, apply once the cream gets absorbed.
  • Finally, apply sunscreen during an AM routine. You can skip it at night.

”Your skin is an investment, not an expense. So choose wisely.” 


1. What does a beginner need for a skincare routine?

If you are a beginner with no visible signs of aging or concerns like acne, blemishes, and dullness, follow a 3-step routine. Use a cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen in the initial stages.

2. Are expensive skincare products more effective?

Only costly products don’t always do wonders for your skin. Always look at the ingredients and match them with your skin type. Femica has some of the most budget-friendly skincare products that are as effective as any other luxury brand.

However, certain expensive products last longer than affordable ones making them a fruitful investment.

3. Can I use all actives and chemicals in one day?

Using everything in one single go can damage the skin barrier and worsen existing symptoms. It is best to use a maximum of two skincare ingredients. For example – Do not mix retinol and vitamin C or AHA/BHAs. It may dry out the skin and cancel each other’s benefits. 

Similarly, do not use vitamin C with other acids like salicylic or lactic acid.
