We all know that skin care isn’t one-size-fits-all. Whether you have dry skin, are prone to blemishes, or simply want to combat wrinkles, it can be time-consuming to continually go through trial and error to find the right products for you.
But before you dive into the nitty-gritty of it all, let’s take it back to the basics. “Regardless of your skin type, your lifestyle, or your budget, the basics of [your] morning routine should include a cleanser and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, and the evening routine should include a cleanser and a light moisturizer,” advises Dr. Shasa Hu, M.D., Associate Professor of Dermatology and dr. brandt® Skincare Advisor.
You should also incorporate treatments or serum that target your specific skin care concerns. Kate Somerville, founder of Kate Somerville notes, “Once [the] skin is plumped full of hydration, you can layer on any treatment serums, and seal in the goodness with the right moisturizer for your top skin concerns.”

Although cleansers are only used to rid your skin of dirt and impurities, it’s still important to choose one that works for you. “…a cleanser should leave your skin feeling smooth, smooth, but not tight or dry,” says Dr. Hu.
