Am And Pm Skincare Routine

Am And Pm Skincare Routine Do you currently have a skincare routine in place? Do you cleanse your face twice a day – in the morning and before bedtime? Do you moisturize regularly? If you’re unsure or answered “no” to any of these questions, read on to discover why both morning (AM) and evening (PM) skincare routines are vital for maintaining healthy skin as we combat the aging process. Although both routines share common steps, they serve distinct purposes, ensuring that your skin responds optimally to the products you use, ultimately reversing the signs of aging.

Your skin is exposed to various elements throughout the day, which can lead to dehydration. The morning routine aims to replenish moisture in your skin and shield it from environmental factors.

Before exposing your skin to external agents, cleanse away impurities that accumulated overnight, including those from pillowcases and dead skin cells. Our multi-balm black caviar sticks are an ideal morning pick-me-up, even with makeup. These sticks can be conveniently reapplied throughout the day without using your fingers, which can transfer germs.

Evening Skincare Routine (PM)

The evening routine, ideally performed just before bedtime, focuses on repairing and rejuvenating your skin, which has endured daily stressors.

Modern diets and environmental pollutants expose our skin’s protective barrier to constant challenges. This extra stress can manifest as aging signs like puffiness and fine lines. The nighttime routine is not only restorative but also allows for targeted skincare with various serums, enhancing the skin’s natural regeneration process during sleep.

Now that you’re familiar with the basic steps of each routine, let’s delve into the purpose of each step to ensure you achieve optimal results.

Cleanser (AM & PM)

Cleansing is a critical initial step in both routines, providing your skin with a fresh start. A lightweight cleanser is recommended, particularly in summer when layering products.

In the evening, use makeup cleansers or removers if needed. This allows subsequent products to penetrate the skin efficiently. Regardless of makeup use, perform a “second cleanse” in the evening to remove daily dirt and grime, ensuring your skin is primed for your nighttime routine.

Toner (AM & PM)

Toners, though optional, can be beneficial in both routines. When used, apply them after facial cleansers. Toners can be particularly helpful in the evening to eliminate residual makeup not removed during the initial cleansing.

Toners prep and nourish your skin for the remaining routine, acting as a “pre-game” step. If you’re new to daily routines, start with gentler toners containing lactic acid. As you gain experience, rotate between various acid toners targeting specific skincare concerns.

Serums (AM & PM)

Serums are optional but versatile components of your skincare regimen. Countless serums address specific issues, making it challenging to choose the right one for your skin.

Serums are often used to combat aging signs, treat acne, address dark spots, and reduce inflammation. Trial and error, along with research, will help determine which serums best suit your skin. For example, Dēpology’s Matrixyl 3000 Collagen Serum targets and slows down the aging process while promoting collagen production.

Sunscreen (AM)

Sunscreen is non-negotiable for proper skincare. UV rays can harm your skin and accelerate the aging process. Use nothing less than SPF 30 when venturing outdoors to ensure adequate protection. Consider moisturizers with added SPF for time-saving during longer, sun-exposed days.

Eye Cream (AM & PM)

The delicate skin around your eyes is prone to aging signs. Eye creams reduce puffiness and dark spots, brightening this sensitive area.

Spot Treatments (AM & PM)

Spot treatments are customized to individual needs. They can address redness, acne, scars, and other skin issues, restoring your skin’s healthy glow.

Moisturizer (AM & PM)

Moisturizing is essential, as it allows your skin to adapt to the products applied earlier. It acts as a protective barrier, preventing products from evaporating too quickly. Choose a moisturizer based on your skin type, whether it’s oily, dry, or a combination. Facial mists with glycerin or hyaluronic acids can further hydrate and protect your skin, avoiding alcohol-based products that can dry it out.

Face Oil (AM & PM)

Face oil application differs between routines. In the morning, apply it before sunscreen to help retain moisture and benefits from previous products. In the evening, use it as the final step after moisturizing, preserving product efficacy and promoting skin hydration.

Retinol (PM)

Retinol is an excellent addition to your skincare regimen. It accelerates cell turnover, particularly effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. While vitamin C is also beneficial, avoid combining it with retinol to prevent skin irritation.

Dēpology’s Anti-Aging Retinol Night Cream promotes skin nourishment and cell turnover, suitable for all skin types.
