Now if you are totally new to skincare, don’t worry, we’re not about to prescribe you a 20-step routine. “To get the most benefit out of a regular skincare regimen, you only need to follow a few simple steps—cleanse, moisturise and protect,” explains Khorana. “Sticking to this simple, stripped-back routine can help keep your skin healthy and happy.”
“You can build on this routine and add a step we call ‘treat’ to address any skin concerns with ingredients like vitamin C, retinol, AHAs, BHAs,” she adds. This step can be incorporated via products such as face mists, serums, toners, and oils, and will help you to address specific skin concerns, such as breakouts, dryness, sensitivity, scarring, redness, and signs of ageing.
