So you are thinking about finally start your skincare routine, but you have some questions: How many products do you need to use? Which ones are right for your skin? In what order you need to apply these products? And what do those products even do?
Here is our step-by-step guide to to building the perfect regimen for flawless skin, including the right order and the right products.
Skin Care Steps
Apply your skincare products in the following order for optimal results:
Cleansing is the most fundamental and essential step of any skincare routine. Your skin is vital to your general health, so remember to wash it twice a day, morning and night. By doing this, you remove environmental pollutants, dirt, and other factors that your skin exposes daily. Follow this recommendation to avoid clogged pores, dullness, and acne.
If you are interested in committing to our unique South American beauty skincare routine, facial toner can be an essential part of your daily routine. Facial toner is the in-between skincare step. It's intended to be used after washing your face but before using your serum, moisturizer or any other product right after cleansing. Toners prepare your skin for moisturizers and serums while getting rid of excess oil and obstinate dirt or residual makeup on your face after you wash it. However, toning is not a replacement for washing your face. Never use them as a shortcut to your skincare routine.
To fully absorb the nutrients in your Gachala natural skincare products you apply to your skin, you first need to exfoliate. Exfoliation is necessary for getting rid of those dead skin cells that remain on your skin after a facewash. Exfoliation oxygenates your skin by promoting microcirculation and cell regeneration. Try to exfoliate three times a week. Even if you only do it once a week, you'll still notice positive results.
If you have a great complexion, a face mask shouldn't be part of your skincare routine. However, even if your facial skin looks fabulous, a face mask can be useful for those occasions when skin looks and feels less than optimal.
Regardless of your skin type or concerns, a good face mask should be loaded with natural, ideally, organic ingredients (such as antioxidants, emollients, and humectants), and avoid ingredients that are drying or irritating (including denatured alcohol, fragrance, and essential oils.)
Be aware that you should use a mask depending on your skin concerns and type of mask:
- Whether it's a clay mask, cream mask, sheet mask, peel-off mask, or other types of face mask, always cleanse your skin first.
- If you have to rinse the mask off, apply it after cleansing but before the rest of your skincare routine.
- If the face mask is to be left on overnight, use it as the last step in your nighttime skincare routine.
- As mentioned above, most leave-on masks are hydrating, so you might be able to skip applying your regular nighttime moisturizer—but you'll want to use the mask and your face moisturizer if you have dry skin.
We LOVE serums here at Gachala—you've seen them on our website, Instagram stories, TikTok videos, Facebook posts, and Vanity Fair Magazine. And if you are reading this, you've probably got some beautiful Gachala serum, and you're not sure what to do with it. No worries, we are here for you.
Gachala Serums are like shots of incredibly concentrated nutrients, hydrators, and antioxidants that will take your skin health and routine to the next level. Simply put, serums are powerful skin allies. No matter your age, you should include serums in your daily skincare routine, even if you start in your 20s. Our antioxidant serums provide a variety of benefits. Gachala serums protect your skin from oxidation damage, causing wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and tone and moisture loss.
Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don't, start today! There are many benefits to using a high-quality facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizing helps your skin look and feel younger. You will have softer and more elastic skin when you keep it hydrated.
Here at Gachala Skincare, we want to make sure your skin looks young and healthy in the years to come. The following are the benefits of using our AMAZONIAN GODDESS Luna Night Cream:
- Luna Night Cream reduces the chances of skin problems.
- Luna Night Cream minimizes the appearance of other blemishes.
- Luna Night Cream helps your skin stay young.
- Luna Night Cream fights wrinkles.
The skin area around your eyes is commonly neglected and requires its own targeted skincare products. Like going to the gym or going to a Yoga class, the best results against ageing signs begin from a steady commitment to skincare. At Gachala, we advise on starting your eyecare routine on youthful skin; this offers long-lasting results as your skin ages. It's always better when you start earlier as the results are more powerful when you start preventing damage instead of repairing it.
When you incorporate Gachala's Luxury Facial Serum in your eye care routine, your eye area will start to look brighter, and you'll notice your skin is more hydrated right after the first application of our wonderful facial serum. With time, you'll discover visibly smooth lines and wrinkles. Remember, this happens over time depending on your age, lifestyle and consistency.
Destructive UV rays harm your skin 365 days a year. No matter if it's cloudy or you are indoors. Therefore, it's essential to protect your skin every day by always using a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher.
Choose a sunscreen suitable for your skin type.
We recommend using a light texture synthetic sunscreen for combination or oily skin prone to breakouts. They work by absorbing UV rays into the skin and turn them into heat. To be effective, they need to be fully absorbed, so always apply them at least 15 minutes before being exposed to the sun rays.
Mineral sun filters are more suitable for dry or sensitive skin types. They are made with natural ingredients that stay on the surface of your skin, reflecting UV radiation, just like a mirror. The good thing is they work right after you applied them so that you can go outside immediately.
Skincare doesn't end at your low-neck. Even though your body doesn't get as much exposure to the sun and environmental pollutants as your face, discoloration, sagginess and dullness are problems you may experience below the neck as well. At Gachala, we have the firm belief that your bum should be as plump and healthy as your face. That is why we created the fantastic DIVINA Luxurious Buriti Seed Serum, a body serum with all the amazing benefits you know from our Luxury Facial Serum, but specially formulated for your body skin. Full of Antioxidants, like vitamin C prevent the cell-destroying effects of pollution, smoke, and sun.
