With so many products to choose from, it can become confusing to find a skin care regimen that works for you. We understand how difficult it is to find a regimen that works. So here are some golden rules put together by our skin care experts at Alcheme, to help you find the routine which will keep your skin radiant, healthy and most importantly –  works for you.

Rule #1: Adopt a routine you can really stick to

Active ingredients require time and consistent application in order to show results. If you skip steps in your routine, for lack of time or energy (or both), consider focusing your daily routine on the must have steps, to ensure you get these right, all the time. You can build from this foundation by adding on steps, over time.

On the other hand, if you are a skincare fan that enjoys the effect that layering products have on your skin, go for it! There is no “one routine fits all” when it comes to skincare.

Rule #2: Listen to your skin and adapt skin care usage

With age, your skin requires higher levels of moisture and hydration to remain plump and smooth. Lines and wrinkles are also more visible with this skin type, triggering the need for a more complete skin routine. While we typically shy away from cream type textures because of the weather, normal to dry skins benefit from the oil component found in these types of textures.

Our advice, listen to your skin: for example, if your skin feels tight in the morning, your skin may be lacking in hydration during the night, when our body’s temperature increases. You may consider adding a thicker moisturizer to your night routine.

If your make up cakes or makes your fine lines more visible, it is highly likely that increasing hydration levels would help.

Rule #3: Layering skincare products from different brands may raise some compatibilility questions. Ask us when in doubt!

75% of women are unsure if they using the right product for their skin. If you are one of them, we would love to start the conversation with you!

Some active ingredients are photosensitive, others function at different pH levels. It is important to take into account all the active ingredients you are using, across your skincare routine.
