Your Daily To Yearly SkinCare Routine: The Ultimate Guide

skincare routine

Hello, ladies, this post is the ultimate guide to your daily to a yearly skincare routine. If you read through the post, I have put together the most outstanding beauty care you should incorporate into your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly beauty regimen.


1. Wash your face twice: It is imperative to wash your face twice, once in the morning and once at night before bed. Keeping a daily skincare routine will make your skin look younger and firmer. The best skincare routine depends on your skin type. Do you have oily/acne prone skin, dry skin, combination skin, or sensitive skin?

For example, if you have oily skin, your skin care routine should include products with ingredients such as

If you have dry skin, you should look for products with ingredients such as

  • Honey
  • Glycerin
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Shea Butter
  • Argan Oil

2. Take off your makeup every night: The number one cardinal beauty sin you don't want to commit is going to sleep with your makeup on. I am not perfect, and I have been guilty of this sin more than twice since I started wearing makeup, but my excuse was I wasn't into skincare like now, so I didn't know the harmful effects of not washing my makeup off was having on my skin. If you have been committing this beauty sin and today is the first time you have ever heard of the importance of taking off your makeup before bed is, then you are forgiven and let's not repeat it again.

I know how it feels to come home after a long day and just plopping on the couch and not feeling like going to the bathroom to wash off your makeup. Times have changed, and there are beauty products that do all the work for you and you don't even need to use water; this beauty product will remove even the most stubborn waterproof mascara. I am talking about the oh so popular Micellar Water - Read more about it here.

I love my Neutrogena Makeup Remover, It doubles as a facial cleanser, so it's a one-step system for when I am too tired to follow all the skincare steps. I remove my makeup and cleanse at the same time, and apply my moisturizer.

3. Apply moisturizer after cleansing: Moisturizing after cleansing is a no brainer. It is also paramount for my ladies with oily skin to not skip this step in your daily skincare routine. Moisturizing is important no matter what skin type you have. Here are some benefits of daily moisturizing:

4. Apply a treatment serum: This is probably the number one skincare regimen you should adopt at an early age, preferably in your early 20's. We all have something we would like to treat on our skin be it hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, skin that is patched or just maintaining your skin's youthfulness.

What Is A Serum
A Serum is a light moisturizer that penetrates deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. The molecules in a facial serum are much smaller, so they penetrate into the deepest layers where they will be most effective. Simply put, Serums are designed to deliver results.

Depending on your age or skin care need, you may opt for serums such as Vitamin C Serum, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Retinol Serum, or Skin Brightening Serum.

5. Drink lots and lots of water: Water should be your best friend, your skin will thank you years to come. It is imperative to hydrate your skin from the inside out for a bright, youthful and bouncy skin. Other benefits of drinking water include calorie control, fatigue buster, and fluid balance. Fluid balance is vital because it aids to digest our food, regulate the body temperature, and transport nutrients to the body.

6. Get 8 hours of sleep: A good night's sleep is tantamount to having a glowing complexion. Getting 8 or more hours of sleep helps to boost blood to the skin. Skimping on sleep will make your skin look drab, exhausted, and lifeless no matter how much makeup you put on. The reason your skin looks dull without adequate sleep is that sleep deprivation causes a decrease in blood flow to the skin surrounding your face. DO NOT skimp on your sleep.

7. Sleep on a silk pillowcase: Treat your skin like royalty and switch to sleeping on a silk pillowcase. A silk pillowcase will help your skin to look refreshed upon waking up in the morning and also prevent your skin from forming wrinkles and fine lines prematurely. A silk pillowcase is good for both the hair and skin.

8. Wear SPF 30+: Never ever skip sunscreen. Whether you can see the sun or not, you should apply sunscreen before going out. Most importantly, don't omit to use sunscreen at night; if you are going out at night on date night or having dinner with your girlfriends, you should apply sunscreen before you apply your makeup.


1. Exfoliate your skin: Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells on the outermost part of the skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, dirt, and excess oil. Exfoliate your face at least 2-3 times a week. If you have oily/acne prone skin, you might have to exfoliate your skin more than 3 times a week.

2. Use a sheet mask

3. Change your pillowcases

4. Clean your makeup brushes

5. Disinfect your cell phone

6. Work out 4 times a week: A good weekly exercise helps to keep the body toned and to ward off big diseases like diabetes, heart failure, or cancer. Here are other sweet benefits you can reap with a regular workout routine

  • Blood flow to boost your skin glow
  • Better blood circulation
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Reverse the aging process
  • Sleep better
  • Combat acne spots

7. Treat yourself to an at-home facial steam: A good facial steam will soften the skin surface to remove impurities, bacteria, and dirt from your pores. A steam cleanses your pores and aids to draw out buildup and makes it easier to remove pimples, blackhead, and whiteheads.


1. Spa treatment/ facial treatment

2. Examine your skin for moles, sun damage, wrinkles (30 and above)


1. See a dermatology for a checkup

2. Go in for a through skin screening
