Looking to build a basic skincare routine? We know it can be a little confusing - so we’re here to help! A morning and night skincare routine is essential for maintaining the health and vitality of your skin, and because our skin concerns are so varied, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. In fact, the best skincare routine is the one that is tailored to your individual skin type and concerns!

 

Benefits of a daily skincare routine

A daily skincare routine is the best way to work with your skin type and tackle your individual skin concerns.

 

- Reduces signs of ageing

As we grow older, our skin’s elasticity, texture and moisture levels change. While we believe that younger skin is no more beautiful than ageing skin, many of us take comfort in knowing that the best skincare routines can treat and nourish our skin, helping it to retain firmness, plumpness and that all important healthy glow.

 

- Improves skin health
As the body’s largest organ, our skin comes into direct contact with environmental aggressors on a daily basis. A basic skincare routine protects our skin from these pollutants, replenishes moisture levels, and protects our skin barrier.

 

- Boosts confidence
There’s something about the act of self-care that simply makes you feel good. We like to think of a basic skincare routine as a self-love ritual, and this goes a long way in making us more comfortable in the skin we’re in, which in turn, boosts our self-confidence. 

 

How do I start a skincare routine for beginners?

If you’re building a basic skincare routine from scratch, start with minimal steps and slowly introduce products that target your specific skin concerns. This guide will help everyone from beginners to skincare experts achieve glowing, healthy skin every day by using the Jeuneora Skincare range that has been tried and tested by skincare lovers across the globe.

Your morning skincare routine

A morning skincare routine should focus on hydration and protection. This is where you want to use antioxidant-rich ingredients that protect your skin from environmental stressors.

Cleanser

A gentle cleanse in the morning washes away excess oil, grime or dead skin cells you’ve picked up from your pillow in the night, and leaves you with fresh, cleansed skin that is ready to soak in the next steps of your morning skincare routine. A versatile foaming cleanser like OhMyDays is our favourite way to start the day.


Serums

We love serums, and your skin will love them too! They hone in on specific skin concerns, targeting everything from fine lines to dark spots. Serums generally contain concentrated doses of active ingredients that serve a specific purpose.

To brighten skin, fade dark spots and protect against free radicals try our antioxidant-rich Vitamin C serum - Brightening Booster.

To visibly reduce signs of ageing and to deeply hydrate your skin, try our multitasking serum #TBT which includes Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid and other key Antioxidants.


Moisturiser

Every skin type needs moisture, even oily ones. As a fundamental in any basic skincare routine, moisturiser hydrates your skin and keeps your skin barrier healthy and happy. In the morning, use a lightweight and energising moisturiser like GoLightly – which also uses Arctalis™ to protect your skin from digital blue light pollution.


SPF

SPF is the most important step in any morning skincare routine. UV rays are responsible for early ageing, dark spots and not to mention, skin cancer, which is why a broad-spectrum SPF is a must in any basic skincare routine.

Your night skincare routine

A night skincare routine is all about cleansing, treatment and recovery. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to take five and unwind from your day.

 

Double Cleanse

When it comes to deeply cleaning your skin after a long day, we love a double cleanse. Start with an oil-based cleanser like MeltTheDay to remove makeup, SPF and general grime from the day, then follow up with a lightweight foaming cleanser like OhMyDays to deeply cleanse pores, remove impurities and leave skin feeling fresh, clean and hydrated.

 

Exfoliation (1-3 times a week)

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, unblocks pores and preps your skin for the next steps in your skincare routine. Physical exfoliators like SupearlaNova have tiny particles that buff dead skin cells away, while chemical exfoliators like Clarifying Booster use naturally-derived Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs (like Glycolic, Mandelic or Lactic Acid) that break down those dead skin cells. We recommend exfoliating 2 - 3 times per week. If you exfoliate too much you can compromise your skin barrier.

(Clay Mask (1-3 times a week)

Clay masks like SundaySlay absorb excess oil and decongest pores, making them a great option for oily, acne-prone or combination skin types. SundaySlay also includes ingredients that help hydrate the skin and support collagen production. You can apply a clay mask on the same evening as you use a physical exfoliator. How often you use a clay mask will depend on your skin type:
- Dry skin = once per week
- Combination or normal = 1 - 2 times per week
- Oily and acne prone = up to 3 times per week

 

Retinol & Serums

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A derivatives that fight signs of ageing by stimulating collagen production, clearing pores, and brightening skin. If you’re new to retinol, make sure you slowly introduce it to avoid irritation and keep use to 3 - 4 times per week. Make sure you use retinol in the evening only as it can make you more sensitive to the sun.

If you’re looking for an everyday night serum, look for a super hydrating and nourishing serum like ThemGenes that includes peptides, flavonoids and amino acids. These ingredients do wonders for your skin’s health and microbiome while you sleep.

Moisturisers & Oils

Moisturisers and oils create a protective barrier over your skin and lock in all the other products so they can work their magic, which is why they’re the last step in your night skincare routine. An ultra-hydrating repair cream like GoNightly replenishes and restores moisture levels while you sleep and if you really want a nourishing treat, finishing up with our luxe face oil - SuperSuper. Just remember, face oils shouldn’t be used in place of moisturiser. Think of it this way: If you were thirsty, you wouldn’t rehydrate by drinking a glass of oil! Your skin’s the same!

 

 

Skincare routine FAQs

 

- How do you maintain a beauty routine?

Like any good habit, maintaining a beauty routine (and seeing the results!) comes down to consistency. Set your alarm five minutes earlier so you can take the time to enjoy your morning skincare routine, rather than rushing through the steps. In the evening, use your night skincare routine as your time to relax and unwind from the day. Make it fun by doing your skincare routine with flatmates, or rope your partner into doing it with you.

 

- What is the most basic skincare routine?

A basic skincare routine should include three products in the morning: cleanser, moisturiser and an SPF. In the evening, simply cleanse and moisturise.

 

- Can morning and night skincare routines be the same?

If you want to keep things simple… absolutely! There are a few exceptions: targeted AHAs and retinoids should only be used in the evenings and SPF should be applied every morning.

 

- Should you do your skincare right before bed?

You can do your night skincare routine before bed, but be sure to give the products up to 20 minutes to completely dry so they don’t rub off onto your pillow.

 

- What does vitamin C do for your skin?

Vitamin C works wonders for your skin! It’s a powerful antioxidant that brightens skin, visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots, supports collagen production, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and protects your skin against environmental damage, which is why we recommend using it in your morning skincare routine.

 

- Do I need both serum and moisturiser?

This completely depends on your skin type, how much time you want to spend on your skincare, and your budget! Generally speaking, serums are much thinner and contain active ingredients that treat specific skin concerns, while moisturisers are thicker and are designed to hydrate the skin and seal in all the goodness. While many people prefer to use both, oilier skin types may find that a super-hydrating serum like #TBT or ThemGenes is moisturising enough on its own. On the other hand, if you have a very basic skincare routine and don’t use serums, a moisturiser is fine to be used on its own too.

Absolutely loving every single product. My skin is glowing and the smells are insane! I have been converted and I ain't mad about it!” – Alanna G

“Best skincare I’ve tried! Have been searching for a complete skin routine for years but nothing lived up to their hype until now! I have combination skin and this set is perfect! Keeps my pimples under control and hydrates my dry patches that have appeared during the recent cold months. Usually, I will find some products in a set that I won’t purchase again but in this pack, I will be purchasing every item again as I just love how each feels on my skin. Love, love, love this skincare and so glad I found it.” – Courtney H

“Decided to treat myself on the whole set and was not disappointed! Each product is so lovely on the skin and they work so well together. I don’t think I could ever go back to any other brand. After a few days, I noticed a huge difference with more radiant, glowing skin. Soo glad I purchased the whole set. It is worth it! The best skincare range I have ever used.” – Brook
