Benefits of a Skincare routineHow are you feeling these days? Just asking since this time of year feels like it’s one foot in the carefree days of summer but also filled with the longing for routine.

For me, after all the downtime, I am ready to get back to business. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what that will look like with virtual learning, but I’m ready for stability.

Having a routine has many benefits. It can give you a sense of control, prioritize your needs, organize your life, and establish healthy habits.

And guess what? Having a great skincare routine does all that and gives you the self-care benefits you need during stressful times.

3 Benefits of a Skincare Routine 

When it comes to beauty, really anything goes. But there are a few benefits from having a skincare regimen.

1. By using products that were formulated to work together, you get the biggest impact. Your optimal skincare routine should have the basics: cleanser, toning product, treatment, and moisturizer.  Yes, you can use four different brands because you like them, but they may not work best when used together.

2. Simplify things. Using products made for each other, sold by the same retailer, and packaged in the right size can save time on sourcing from various stores.

3. Save money when you bundle. Investing in a skincare collection can save money vs. purchasing products individually. Below, I’ll share savings on the Beautycounter sets.


Right now, when you invest in a Beautycounter skincare regimen or collection, you will receive a FREE Counter+ Brightening Facial Oil {that’s worth $69!}. It’s amazing and you can use it as an extra boost in your routine.

Let’s give a closer look to these routines and what’s best for you.

If you’re still wondering which skincare routine is best for you, take this SKINCARE QUIZ.


Just to be completely transparent, there are a few considerations when starting a new skincare routine.

  1. GIVE IT TIME. You won’t reach your goal weight after jumping on the treadmill after one day. Same with your skincare. You will not have the best skin of your life after one use. It may take up to six weeks to really see results.
  2. BE CONSISTENT. A skincare routine is designed to take the guesswork out of what you should do each day. It’s a commitment, but not as difficult as eating the same salad for lunch every day.
  3. APPLY IN ORDER OF THICKNESS. Start with your cleanser, then toner or Essence, serum, moisturizer. You can then add eye treatments and facial oils.
