You want to create an appropriate organic skincare regimen but have questions like: which skincare products should you use? Which ingredients are best for your skin type? What are the right steps? How do skin care products benefit your skin? If these questions are making your life stressful, then you are at the right place.
You must use your products correctly for them to work the best. The products you use, their ingredients, the time of day you apply them, and your skin type will all affect your skin. Having a daily organic skincare routine will be helpful for your skin to get maximum results.
The Perfect 5-Step Skincare Routine
Applying skincare combo products in the correct order is one thing anyone can do to improve the quality of their skin, regardless of whether they follow a three or five-step routine. An organic skincare routine is a perfect way to ensure that your skin is healthy and free from harmful chemicals. With the right products, you can create a simple yet effective AM and PM skincare routine that will leave your skin looking and feeling its best. Apply your skincare products in this order: start with a face cleanser, face scrub, and face mask, followed by an application of a dry oil that locks in moisture, and at last, use a moisturizing lip butter to get going with the day.
Here are the steps to follow for a proper AM and PM skincare routine:
I. Use a cleanser:
There are many face cleaning products available in the market, but to avoid using harsh chemicals, you should wash your face with an organic face cleanser suitable for your skin type first thing in the morning. Use a gentle face cleanser like Ikkai Pina Colada Face Wash. It's a pH-balancing face wash that contains coconut milk and pineapple extract to moisturise and nourish your skin. By eliminating impurities and dirt, this face wash helps moisturise, soothe, and clarify skin. Use this product twice a day for refreshed and hydrated skin.
AM Skincare Regime: Using a face wash in the morning helps to remove dirt and impurities that may have accumulated on the skin overnight. This helps to create a clean and refreshed base for the rest of the skincare routine, leaving the skin ready to absorb the beneficial ingredients from the other products.
PM Skincare Regime: Using a face wash in the PM skincare routine is essential for removing any impurities that accumulate on the skin throughout the day. This includes makeup, dirt, sweat, and pollution. Cleansing the face before bedtime also allows for better absorption of other skincare products such as serums and moisturizers and allows the skin to repair itself overnight. This helps to leave the skin refreshed and rejuvenated when you wake up.
II. Use a face scrub to exfoliate dead cells:
By unclogging pores and eliminating dead skin cells, a face scrub improves the appearance of your skin. If you are looking for a gentle scrub, you must try Ikkai C The Glow Face Scrub. It is a gel-based scrub with pulpy beads made of Kakadu Plum and sugar granules. Kakadu Plum nourishes and restores the skin’s moisture and natural glow, and sugar granules act as a natural exfoliator that gently removes dead skin cells. C The Glow Face Scrub helps in reducing hyperpigmentation and unclogs pores making the skin smooth and bright. We recommend you use this scrub twice a week in your AM skincare routine as it can help to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing brighter, smoother skin.
III. Use a Face Mask, Face Concentrate & Face Moisturiser to nourish your skin:
Your AM skincare routine can be given a boost by including a face mask once or twice a week. Face masks help solve many skin concerns and have benefits like anti-ageing, moisturising, detoxifying, and much more. If you are struggling with pigmentation, we recommend you try using the Ikkai Fruity Surprise Face Mask, a nourishing, moisturising face pack that lightens pigmentation. Niacinamide, present in this mask, soothes the skin and replenishes dry skin to restore freshness and radiance.
Fruity Surprise Face Mask's creamy texture and skin-improving qualities hydrate and nourish the skin while reducing pigmentation and blemishes. Including Ikkai C The Glow Brightening Concentrate, which consists of Kakadu plum and niacinamide in your AM routine keeps your skin hydrated all day and helps your skin glow. Add an extra dose of hydration and give a dewy sheen to your skin with Ikkai Get Lit Illuminator Strobe Moisturiser Pearl Matt. It contains the goodness of green tea that helps keep your skin moisturized and gives a sheen.
IV. Apply a facial Dry Oil & Crème to seal in moisture at night:
Ikkai C The Glow Dry Oil made up of Kakadu plum is high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, making it an ideal ingredient for a PM skincare routine. It helps brighten and even out the skin tone, reduces dark spots, and provides intense moisturisation.
The C The Glow Dry Oil repairs dull and damaged skin while you sleep. We suggest your try Ikkai C The Glow Face Souffle Crème with the goodness of vitamin C to reduce dark spots and get an even skin tone. Use C The Glow Face Souffle Crème to nourish the skin from within while enhancing the skin’s natural radiance.
V. Use hydrating Lip Care Product:
While we intensely hydrate our skin with these products, we usually forget that our lips also need the same amount of care to retain moisture.
Incorporating Pink Me Again Lip Butter and Pink Me Again Lip Scrub into your AM lip care routine is essential for maintaining soft, smooth, and healthy-looking lips. Ikkai Lip Scrub made with beetroot, sugar granules and kokum butter can gently exfoliate the lips, removing any dry or dead skin cells. This helps to reveal a fresh, smooth surface and makes lips more nourished. Ikkai Lip Butter containing ingredients such as kokum butter, shea butter, and beetroot extract can help moisturize and protect your lips, leaving them looking and feeling healthy. These ingredients are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and heal chapped lips.
For intensely hydrated lips overnight we recommend you use Ikkai Pink Me Again Lip Sleeping Mask. It contains shea and kokum butter that provides intense hydration and nourishment for the lips overnight. By using a lip sleeping mask that contains these ingredients as part of your PM lip care routine, you can wake up with soft, smooth, and healthy-looking lips.
Creating an effective skincare routine is essential for achieving the desired results for your skin. A consistent AM and PM routine can help protect and repair the skin. Remember that everyone's skin is different, so it's important to find a routine that works best for you and your unique skin type.
