If you are someone who has a profile on every social media network, then you know how many different types of influencers there are. With that, you know how many beauty influencers there are out there telling you how important a good skincare routine is. But they are just people with big social media following, so do you believe them and do as they say? Well, that’s what we are here to discuss. After all, there are some skincare routines that just seem like extra work with products that cost exorbitant prices. Let’s see if a skincare routine is really necessary.
How you take care of your skin is really your business. Whether you have a nine-step routine or a two-step routine, it’s all really up to you and how much time you have. You will notice that adding extra steps to the routine you already have might not end up working for you. Also adding in new products might not work because your skin might not agree with it. The entire purpose of a skincare routine is to simply take care of your skin and well it allows you to have some self-care in your schedule.
With that in mind, some people swear by their skincare routines and that’s okay. There is some science that proves that it actually works. However, you have to keep in mind that it’s not the products that make it a routine. A routine simply means that you do it daily. So if you simply moisturize your skin every morning after a shower then that’s your skincare routine. You really don’t need to have something that takes you 20 minutes if you don’t want to. So are skincare routines necessary? Yes and no, it all depends on your time and preference.
