You should use a cleaner every morning and before going to bed and wash your face afterward even if you haven’t applied makeup. For dry or sensitive skins, a creamy cleanser is perfect, for oily skin, go for a foaming cleanser and for normal skin a gel cleanser will do. You don’t have to use a different one in the morning and night, find a cleanser that works for you and use only one.

2. Serum

A vitamin C serum is packed with antioxidants.

For a glowing complexion a vitamin C serum the right choice –it is an antioxidant, it helps remove dark spots and protects the skin against pollution.

3. Sunscreen

Always finish with SPF.

SPF should be the most important product if you are after anti-aging skincare: it helps prevent wrinkles and dark spots.

4. Night treatment


From 25 on you should consider a gentle retinoid night serum or cream. Retinoids boost the cells from the skin’s outer layer turnover, reduce the formation of blackheads and whiteheads and other acne lesions.
