How to Build a Beginner Basic Skincare Routine

Having a skincare routine is essential for maintaining healthy and radiant skin. Whether you are a skincare enthusiast or a beginner, establishing a basic skincare routine can help you achieve a clearer and more youthful complexion. In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of building a basic skincare routine that caters to your skin's needs.


Understanding Your Skin Type

Before diving into a skincare routine, it's crucial to understand your skin type. This knowledge will help you choose the right products and treatments that cater to your specific needs. The common skin types are:

  • Normal skin: Balanced and generally not prone to excessive oiliness or dryness.
  • Oily skin: Produces more sebum, often leading to shine and potential breakouts.
  • Dry skin: Lacks moisture, resulting in a dull and sometimes flaky complexion.
  • Combination skin: A mix of oily and dry areas, with the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) being oilier.

Identifying your skin type will assist you in selecting the appropriate skincare products.


1. Cleansing Your Skin

The foundation of any skincare routine is a good cleanser. It helps remove impurities, dirt, and excess oil from your skin, allowing it to breathe and function properly. Choose a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type and use it twice a day – morning and night. Gently massage the cleanser onto your face using circular motions and rinse with lukewarm water.

If you have oil or combination skin, try our Ocean Secret Hydra Brighening Cleansing Gel. The gel cleanser ers pores by eliminating excess oil and acne-causing bacteria from your facial skin's surface.

If you have dry or mature skin, try our Caviar Luxe Delicate Cleansing Foam. This foam cleanser is a gentle yet deeply nourishing cleanser that transforms into a luxurious, frothy lather when added to water, effectively eliminating excess oil and replenishing your skin's hydration during cleansing.


2. Exfoliating for a Fresh Start

Exfoliation is vital to eliminate dead skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion. Depending on your skin's sensitivity, choose an exfoliator that suits you – physical or chemical. Physical exfoliators contain granules that manually remove dead skin cells, while chemical exfoliators use acids to dissolve them. Exfoliate your skin 1-2 times per week to avoid overdoing it.


3. Nourishing with a Hydrating Toner

After cleansing and exfoliating, it's time to replenish your skin's moisture with a hydrating toner. Toners help balance your skin's pH level and prepare it for better absorption of subsequent products. Look for toners with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin, such as the Caviar Luxe Refining and Soothing Toner. Apply the toner to a cotton pad and gently swipe it across your face.


4. Targeting Skin Concerns with Serums

Serums are concentrated formulas that address specific skin concerns like aging, dark spots, or dullness. Choose a serum that targets your primary concern and apply it after toning. Gently massage a few drops onto your face and allow it to absorb before moving on to the next step. If you want a potent formula to elevate your skincare routine, the Caviar Luxe Advance Lifting & Sculpting Serum will be perfect. This advanced serum is packed with amino acids, vitamins, and active antioxidants to provide deep hydration while visibly reducing signs of aging and irritations.


5. Moisturizing for Optimal Hydration

Hydration is vital to maintaining healthy skin. After applying serums, lock in moisture with a suitable moisturizer. Opt for a lightweight moisturizer for oily skin and a richer one for dry skin. Apply the moisturizer evenly to your face and neck, gently massaging it in circular motions. If you're looking for a luxurious caviar skincare product that provides deep hydration and powerful anti-aging benefits, try the Caviar Filler Crème. Enhanced with breakthrough science in caviar essence extraction and BOTOX-esque technology, our signature Caviar Filler Crème is the ultimate 360-degree anti-aging moisturiser to restore fullness and hydration to mature skin.


6. Protecting with Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a non-negotiable step in any skincare routine. It shields your skin from harmful UV rays that can cause premature aging, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it generously to all exposed areas of your skin, including your face, neck, and hands, and reapply every two hours, especially when outdoors. If you need suggestions on choosing a sunblock, consider the Caviar Luxe Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF50++++. This light-texture sunscreen is the ultimate combination of UV protection and moisturiser, perfect for daily use.


7. Adding Eye Care

The delicate skin around your eyes requires special attention. Incorporate an eye cream or gel into your routine to target concerns like puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. Use your ring finger to gently dab a small amount of product around the eye area, taking care not to tug or pull on the skin. Our high-performance Caviar Luxe Rejuvenating Eye Cream is specially developed with potent active ingredients that target the visible signs of aging around the eyes.


8. Weekly Treatments and Masks

To further enhance your skincare routine, consider incorporating weekly treatments and masks. These provide additional nourishment and address specific concerns. Look for masks that cater to your skin type and problems, such as hydrating masks for dry skin or clay masks for oily skin. Apply the mask evenly to your face, leave it on for the recommended time, and rinse it off thoroughly.


9. Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle

While skincare products play a significant role, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is equally important for glowing skin. Ensure you:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking an adequate amount of water daily.
  • Follow a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and antioxidants.
  • Get enough sleep to allow your skin to rejuvenate.
  • Manage stress levels as stress can affect your skin's health.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as they can damage your skin.


The Power of Consistency

Building a skincare routine is not a one-time effort but a commitment to consistency. Following your routine diligently is essential to see significant and long-lasting results. Give your skin time to adjust to the products and be patient, as improvements may take time.



A basic skincare routine doesn't have to be complicated. You can achieve healthier and more radiant skin by understanding your skin type, cleansing properly, exfoliating, using toners and serums, moisturizing, wearing sunscreen, and adding eye care. Remember to maintain a healthy lifestyle and be consistent with your routine for optimal results.
