Step 6: Eye cream

The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. At the same time, this area is very susceptible to aging such as: eye bags, wrinkles, dark spots,… so using eye cream is extremely necessary. A quality eye cream can improve the above condition and brighten, smooth, and firm the eye area.
With eye creams, you just need to take a small amount of cream and dab it on the eye area with your ring finger.

Step 7: Soothe your facial skin with essential oils

The lighter the skin care product is, the sooner it should be applied. Easily absorbed oils are light in weight so should be used before moisturizer. This product is especially effective for dry skin tanning. You will put a few drops of oil on your fingertips, rub them gently before applying to your face.

Step 8: Moisturizer

Moisturizer will help hydrate and soften the skin. Each type of moisturizer will have different effects on different skin types. Therefore, you should choose a moisturizer that is right for you.

  • Thick creams are more suitable for normal or combination skin
  • Liquid and gel moisturizers are recommended for oily skin types

How to use: Take an amount of moisturizer larger than a pea. Apply the cream to your cheeks first, then apply to the rest of your face.

Step 9: Facial oil has a heavier texture

Products containing oils take some time to absorb into the skin. This product is suitable for dry skin. They will be applied after using moisturizer to lock in previous skin care steps.

Step 10: Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an important final step in a woman’s morning skin care routine. Not only can it reduce the risk of skin cancer but it can also fight the signs of aging.
When using, you should apply sunscreen evenly on your face and massage. You should use this product about 30 minutes before going out so the cream has time to absorb. Women should not use skin care products on top of sunscreen as this will reduce the effectiveness of sun protection.

Step 11: Foundation or makeup

Foundation will help you have an even and smooth skin tone immediately, but it is only temporary. Accordingly, when using foundation, you should use a brush or sponge to apply makeup. Start from the center of the face and blend outward for the foundation to work best.

2. Skin care steps at night


Night is the time when the skin regenerates and recovers. If the skin care products during the day have a light texture, the skin care layer will be thicker at night. Night skin care steps are as follows:

Step 2: Liquid facial cleanser

Facial cleanser allows removing makeup and dirt on the skin remaining after makeup removal.

Step 3: Exfoliate

Exfoliating is a step that helps remove dead skin cells, preventing clogged pores. You can also use a clay mask to help absorb remaining oil. These masks are best applied at night to help the skin absorb other products best.

Step 4: Moisturizing toner
