Three Basic Essentials for A Skincare Routine
If you don’t have a skincare routine or maybe you have one, but you are looking to revamp it here are the basic essentials you need to get you started.
Cleanser – Washing your face every night prevents the build-up of dirt and oil on the surface of the skin.
Toner – A face toner removes excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup.
Facial Serum or Moisturizer – Facial Serums are lightweight moisturizers that contain a higher concentration of active ingredients that target a specific skin concern. A moisturizer simply hydrates and softens the skin after cleansing.
Cleansing your face is the most important step in your skincare routine. Washing your face twice a day will help you avoid clogged pores, dull skin, acne, blemishes etc… The right cleanser for your skin type will cleanse without stripping it of all its natural oils.
|Cleansing Types:||Skin Types:||Benefits to Skin Type:|
|Foaming Liquid||Oily||While foaming soap is a benefit to any skin type, it’s especially beneficial to those with oily skin because it is able to break down and remove excess sebum. i.e African Black Soap|
|Oil||Dry & Sensitive||Just like oil and water don’t mix in cooking, sometimes oil is a better option when it comes to cleansing your skin because oil attracts oil. |
Note: Qutie’s Body Bar makes clarifying oils for all skin types but usually it’s used for dry and sensitive skin.

Other cleanser types not mentioned are cream, lotion, and balm cleansers. They all have varied benefits, just make sure you are using the right one for your skin type.
Toner is a multipurpose product that can serve many purposes such as:
- A pre-cleanser to remove make-up and grime before your traditional cleanser.
- A customized toner for your skin type targets specific skincare needs.
- Balances the skin’s Ph after washing the face.

A moisturizer should be a core product of your skincare routine because after cleansing your skin is usually stripped of a significant amount of moisture that needs to be replenished. Also, as you get older your skin starts to experience moisture.
Qutie’s Body Bar currently offers a dual-purpose product that offers the benefits of a serum and a moisturizer in one. Check it out here.
Theses are extra products you can add to your skincare routine to improve the look, feel and health of your skin.
Face Scrub – Face Scrubs help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Sometimes, dead cells don’t shed completely. This can result in dry, flaky patches and clogged pores.
Face Mask – Face Mask work by driving essential ingredients into the pores and skin to give immediate results. Some of the results may be temporary but can give you immediate results if you have an important event.
