Skin Care Routine Basics (Step-By-Step)

Skin Care Routine Basics
Having the right skin care routine for your face can offer big rewards, especially over time. At Bioactive Skin Care Co., we recommend using the skin care routine prescribed by the American Academy of Dermatology.

STEP 1: Cleanse

Don't skip this step! Limit washing your face to a maximum of twice daily. Wet your face with lukewarm water and apply a gentle cleanser using your fingertips as using anything other than your fingertips can cause skin irritation. Rinse your face with lukewarm water and dry using a towel by gently dabbing your face. Resist the temptation to scrub the skin as this can irritate the skin. 

STEP 2: Moisturize

Apply a face moisturizer, preferably one that has been formulated specifically for your skin type. When applying, be sure to gently rub across all areas of the face while avoiding contact with eyes and mouth. Allow the moisturizer to fully absorb into the skin.

At Bioactive Skin Care Co., we’ve specially formulated a series of face moisturizers for each skin type to achieve optimal results for your skin.

STEP 3: Spot Treatment

Although this step is not required, it is recommended that specialized face treatments be used to optimize your routine for your specific face care needs. Spot treatments are products that provide additional cosmetic benefits not provided by your face moisturizer product. Apply spot treatments on the areas of the face where additional treatment and benefits are desired. An example of a face treatment might include a face serum such as our Peptide Serum or Hyaluronic Acid Serum


Starting a new skin care routine can take some time to adapt and isn’t always easy. Remember that consistency is key for achieving results and always follow the instructions on your skin care products. If you follow the above skin care routine daily, along with a little patience, you’ll be on your way to achieving and maintaining your best skin!
