Weekend Refresher - The Guide To A Proper Skin Routine

With the weather getting significantly chillier, it's time to access and reevaluate your current skincare routine. There's a whole world of products out there, all fitting for every and any skin type there is, but just to keep short and simple without leaving out any of the important parts, keep on reading for a quick guide on the best skin you can get this season!

1. Face Wash

You'd be surprised at how many men skip washing their face, or consider a quick rinse with a bar soap "good enough." While soap may sound like a simple answer, for the people out there who deal with dry skin--especially in the colder seasons--bar soap can dry your skin out even more. Even if you are on the oiler end of skin types, a gentle face wash can offer much more benefits than a routine without one. 

2. Exfoliator

Exfoliating your skin to eliminate the layer of dead skin cells not only helps your skin look smoother and more radiant, but also allows for a better absorption of products. It is advised to avoid exfoliating your skin too much. Try to include an exfoliator in your routine about once a week. 

3. Moisturizer

A good moisturizer should be a staple in anyone's skincare routine. Moisturizers allow your skin to build and hold moisture, which can help in avoiding pre-mature wrinkles from otherwise dry, parched skin. Even if you're an oily skin type, don't be discouraged! Opt for a gel-like moisturizer that is oil-free to combat any excess sebum. 

4. Sunscreen

We know what you're thinking--sunscreen during the colder seasons? Believe it for not, sun damage can happen anywhere and anytime you're out in the open without any protection. Sun damage may not seem noticeable at first, but excess sun exposure over a period time can lead to sun spots and wrinkles. Just make sure to reapply accordingly to the SPF.


We all work hard to take care of our looks and health, but skincare is usually overlooked. The skin is the biggest organ of the body, so it's just as important to give it the attention that it rightfully needs. What are some of your most essential skincare steps?
