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

Here’s a recent example: one of our customers shared that she had flaky and dry patches on parts of the face, despite her oily skin, and she was not sure what to do.

If this rings a bell, you are probably using products which are drying up your skin too much. Ironically this leads to your T-zone being shinier faster as the sebum glands react to the drying effect by producing even more sebum.

Our advice, listen to your skin: if the product you are using works for your acne, you may consider keeping it and reducing frequency (once a day or once every other day for example), to limit the drying side effects. Or try other options, which might be milder for your skin but still keep acne and shiny skin at bay.

Rule #3: Ask when in doubt
