According to Dr Skotnicki, the three basic skin-care routine steps are cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen. However, in today's time with the exposure and awareness an individual has, the spectrum of this skincare routine has broadened much more than just these three basic steps. One can virtue this change to the exposure our skin has these days, wether it is to chemicals, the food one eats, the air we breathe or the skin diseases that are increasing day by day.


A good skincare routine is important in helping your skin be in good condition and have overall good skin health. However, this is only as good as the products one uses. While good quality products can do wonders to your skin today as well as in the times ahead, poor quality ones can not only be ineffective but also can do equal harm to one's skin.

Earlier a basic cleanser-toner-moisturiser did the job or maybe we thought it did. Today the process is much more extensive, elaborate and proven to be effective.

This involves the following products :

  • Sunscreen
  • Moisturiser
  • Cleanser
  • Serum
  • Toner
  • Exfoliation
  • Eye Cream
  • Face peel
  • Face Oils
  • Night cream
  • Anti-Ageing cream

These products fall under a huge umbrella of Chemical based / Natural based / – Ayurvedic based /  and further get streamlined to water-based/ gel-based all depending on what the customer is looking for.

Low-quality skin care products can not only give ineffective results such as causing an allergy/rashes, clogging pores /getting a breakout which seems more like short-term issues but can also cause lasting skin diseases. A good skincare product is a good investment one makes which can reap guaranteed results.

Sticking to a good skincare routine can help maintain the equilibrium of the skin.

The following points are pivotal in the skin care rule book :

Patience :

Any product, however good it is will not do wonders to your skin overnight. One has to religiously follow a skincare routine and continue it with full faith that it will do good to their skin if followed through with dedication.

Each one is special :

Like every individual is distinct and special in their own way, so is our skin. Every person has a different and distinct skin type. One must wisely choose a product based on what skin type he/she has rather than following any trending products.

Proactive :

it will be wise to be proactive and save one's skin rather than later regretting not taking good care and trying to fix something for which the time could be too late.  To avoid any such situations, you must follow a good skincare routine.

Self -esteem

Having good skin definitely boosts one self-esteem and confidence which in turn makes one feel empowered. Having said all of the above, skincare should be enjoyed and the industry here is not intending to stress you out. Even, though the industry is growing rapidly, the basic fundamentals will always remain the same.

So go ahead and find yourself the perfect products and have the best skincare routine you can religiously live up to cause: “ Be good to your skin, and you will wear it every day for the rest of your life”.
