How to Build a Skincare Routine

How to Build a Skincare Routine


Let’s start by saying skincare regimens don’t need to be complicated. You don’t need a 10-step routine to get the best results for your skin. All you need is the right high-performance, results-driven products and an easy but effective step-by-step to follow for AM and PM. It really is that simple.

You might find that you get the best results when you have a morning skincare routine that's slightly different to the regime you follow at nighttime, and if you have acne-prone skin, sensitive or dry skin, or any other skin concerns, there may be particular elements you'll benefit from including, but even then, creating a skin care routine that works best for you shouldn't be difficult.

Creating Your Skin Care Routine

At FaceGym we like to keep it straightforward so to make it even easier for you to build your own regime, we’ve devised a three steps plan to help you hit your skin goals every day – just Prep, Train and Recover.

It’s just like you would do in the gym for a body workout, so it’s familiar territory, but now we’re talking face muscle day rather than legs or upper body. So here are the skincare products that should form the basis of most skincare routines.

Step one 

This step is the start of your skin care routine and whether it’s morning or evening, you need to include this. From a gentle cleanser like our Electro-Lite to toners like Skin Changer, the products which make up your prep stage will help you to deeply cleanse, get rid of dead skin cells, excess oil and other impurities and detoxify the skin. Think of it as the reset phase, taking it back to the beginning so you’re starting with a blank canvas for the next steps in your skincare routine.

Step two 

Next up, where the work begins. Our train products pair with our unique facial workout moves to fire up your skin’s metabolism to kickstart the skin transformation process. From facial serums like our vitamin C-based Youth Reformer and Hydro-Bound with hyaluronic acid + niacinamide to our face workout-friendly facial oil, Face Coach these are products with the active ingredients that help to boost collagen, firm, tone and brighten the skin with instant results and long-term benefits.

Step three 

The last step in your skincare routine, also known as the cool-down phase. This is where we introduce the moisturisers Supreme Restructure and Liftwear to the routine. These are the skin care products that help to calm and soothe the skin post-training, boosting hydration and restoring plumpness as well as strengthening the skin barrier. Think of the recover step of your skincare routine as locking in all the good work you’ve just done to make sure your results last longer.  

Creating a Skincare Routine for Every Skin Type

The Prep-Train-Recover approach to creating your skincare routine works for most normal skin types but, as we've already mentioned, if you have oily skin, dry or sensitive skin, or need a routine that includes acne treatments you can look to supplement this approach with the active ingredients that work to give you healthy skin care routine that delivers the best results.
