The Art of Layering: Your Daytime Routine

Let’s start with your daytime skincare routine:

  1. Pre-Cleanse: Think of pre-cleansing as the warm-up before the main exercise. It’s essential to remove makeup, dirt, and oils from your skin to prepare it for the next steps.
  2. Cleanse: Now, it’s time for a deeper cleanse. Using a gentle cleanser, work it into your skin in circular motions to clean your pores thoroughly.
  3. Tone: A toner helps balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for the absorption of the serum and moisturizer that follow.
  4. Serum: These potent elixirs are concentrated with active ingredients. Apply a few drops to your skin and gently pat it in.
  5. Moisturizer: Lock in hydration and keep your skin supple throughout the day with a moisturizer suited to your skin type.
  6. SPF: The final, crucial step is applying SPF. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can cause damage, so never skip this step.

Your Nighttime Skincare Symphony

As night falls, your skincare routine should shift to repair and rejuvenation:

  1. Pre-Cleanse & Cleanse: Just like in the morning, start with a pre-cleanse followed by a thorough cleanse.
  2. Tone: Again, restore balance with a good toner.
  3. Serum: Nighttime is when your skin repairs itself, making it the perfect time for a nourishing serum.
  4. Eye Cream: The skin around your eyes is delicate and requires extra care. Gently apply an eye cream to tackle dark circles and puffiness.
  5. Moisturizer or Richer Night Cream: Seal in all the goodness with a hydrating moisturizer or a richer night cream that works its magic as you sleep.

The Importance of Regular Facials

Incorporating regular facials into your skincare routine is akin to giving your skin a much-needed vacation. Our experienced estheticians at Garden City Wellness tailor each facial to your specific needs, ensuring your skin receives the nourishment it deserves. Regular facials can help maintain optimal skin health and tackle specific concerns, leading to lasting changes for your skin.
