How to Build a Skincare Routine

If you’re anything like us, you take your skincare seriously and are on a never ending pursuit to find the perfect products to keep your skin smooth, hydrated and happy.

But let’s be real: in 2023, skincare can be confusing. The rise of social media means there’s an overwhelming amount of information on the internet, and a lot of it can be conflicting. One minute, your friendly neighbourhood influencer is telling you that oil always goes before moisturiser, and next thing you know, your high-school bestie shares a story saying that actually, you shouldn’t use an oil at all. It’s straight-up confusing out there.

Have you ever found yourself Googling, “How many steps should be in a skincare routine?”, “What is the correct order to apply skincare?” or even “Skincare regimen for beginners,” in a bid to find answers?

Let’s settle the debate once and for all. Here, the experts at Kyla Skincare, settle the debate, explaining the perfect products for a well-rounded skincare routine, along with the ingredients to look out for.

Step 1: Cleanse

Key ingredients to look for in a cleanser: Probiotics, Niacinamide.
Try: Kyla Kleanse

Regardless of your skin type, a gentle cleanser is so important. Whatever you do, steer clear of any kind of face wash that leaves your skin feeling “squeaky clean” afterwards. If your face feels tight, it means your cleanser is too harsh.

Wash off every last bit of makeup, dirt and grime using a gentle-yet-effective cleanser, like Kyla Kleanse. Just quietly, Kyla Kleanse contains ProRenew Complex CLR™ (a Probiotic) and Niacinamide to strengthen the skin barrier and soothe skin with every wash.

Step 2: Serum

Key ingredients to look for in a serum: Ferulic Acid, Hemp Seed Oil.
Try: Kyla Key Serum

Once your skin is freshly-cleansed, it’s time to apply a targeted serum.

Kyla Key Serum is the perfect all-rounder and brightens skin without causing irritation. It contains powerful antioxidant Ferulic Acid, helping to fight off free radicals which, in turn, helps minimise pigmentation and wrinkles. It also soothes and hydrates skin thanks to naturally-derived Hemp Seed Oil.

Step 3: Moisturise

Key ingredients to look for in a moisturiser: Hyaluronic Acid, Hemp Seed Oil.
Try: Kyla Kombat

Has your serum had a few moments to dry? Now it’s time to lock in all that goodness with a moisturiser (yes, even if you have oily skin).

Kyla Kombat is a light, pillowy moisturiser that helps balance an oily complexion while delivering a potent hit of hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is the ultimate hydrator and helps create a more youthful appearance by drawing up to 1,000 times its weight in water into the skin. Meanwhile, Hemp Seed Oil deeply nourishes skin, along with ProRenew Complex CLR™ and Ferulic Acid.

Trust us, you’ve never met a moisturiser like it.

Step 4: Balm

Key ingredients to look for in a balm: Hemp Seed Oil, Manuka Honey
Try: Kyla Klever

Do you get dry skin, lips and other flaky bits? Or fine lines around the eye area After your moisturiser has sunk in, now’s the time to dab on a touch of ultra nourishing balm to plump and relieve dry, thirsty skin.

Kyla Klever really does live up to its name. This fast-absorbing, all-in-one beauty balm is infused with Hemp Seed Oil and Manuka to nourish, protect and relieve skin anywhere you need it – eyes, lips, face, neck, wherever! It’s so klever, it even doubles as an eye cream (trust us, try it!).

Bonus: Mask

Key ingredients to look for in a mask: Clay, Emu Apple Fruit Extract
Try: Kyla Klear

Every good skincare routine should include a weekly mask treatment, particularly if you’re blemish-prone. Just make sure you pick a mask that is equal parts soothing and clearing.

Case in point: Kyla Klear. This detoxifying mask contains mineral-rich Australian Olive Green Clay to deep-dive into pores to draw out impurities and Emu Apple Fruit Extract to calm angry, inflamed skin.
