You may wear your best outfit, but you will not look the best if your face looks dull and tired. If you focus on good skincare, believe me, you will not need a lot of makeup products.

A good skincare routine, a healthy diet, and plenty of water will do far more than an expensive foundation. Following this skincare guide by SpendLessy, you can unlock the top secrets of radiant skin.

Follow Skin Care Routine In Order

AM or PM, follow the skincare routine steps in order.


Skin Cleanser

Skincare starts with face cleansing and all you need is a gentle cleanser that is safe for daily use. There are various forms of cleansers including oil, gel, and cream, depending on your skin type you can any cleanser. Ideally, you should use a cleanser twice a day, morning and night.


Skin Toner

Using a toner after face cleansing is as important as using a conditioner after shampoo. A toner is formulated with many beneficial vitamins and minerals that effectively replenish your dull skin. Right after a cleanser, you can use a toner twice per day. Toner is a must-have product in your skincare routine if you want your serum and moisturizer to penetrate deep into the skin.


Skin Serum

Now it’s time to grab your favorite serum bottle. In the morning time, you can use any serum formulated with antioxidants such as Vitamin C serum to protect your skin from free radical damage caused by UV light. It also brightens your skin and increases the production of collagen resulting in radiant and firm skin.

In the daytime, you can also use serums containing niacinamide (a form of Vitamin B3) to make your skin stronger, smoother, and brighter.

Some serums under no circumstances should be used in the daytime. All serums formulated with retinol (Vitamin A derivate) cannot be used in morning skincare. Retinol increases the rate of dead cell turnover, helps in eradicating fine lines, and wrinkles, and combats with hyperpigmentation.

When you use retinol in the day it can cause you more harm than good. It will increase your skin sensitivity and can cause severe skin burns. All serums that are particularly formulated for skin peeling and exfoliation should be used at night.

Eye Cream

Eye Cream

Now comes the turn of an eye cream. The eyes are one of the delicate parts of our body and the skin around the eyes is much thinner making them more prone to dryness, wrinkles, lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Eye creams are specially formulated to treat all these undereye issues.

When you are applying an eye cream make sure your hands and applicator are clean. Never rub it harshly under your eyes rather gently dab it with your fingers.



As per the American Dermatology Association, always go for sunscreen that is labeled broad-spectrum. That means this sunscreen will save you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Direct exposure to UVA rays causes premature aging such as wrinkles and age spots. On the other hand, UVB rays cause sunburn and high exposure to both rays can cause skin cancer.

Another factor to consider before you buy sunscreen is its SPF number. The higher the SPF number, the higher the protection from UVB rays. There is one more factor that you should not miss out. If you have acne or oil-prone skin, go for the sunscreen that is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) however if you have sensitive skin go for a mineral sunscreen that is mainly composed of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide and it will provide you with a soothing effect. If you have dry skin, you can look for a moisturizer with SPF.



The last and the most important step in a skincare routine. Moisturizers are available in various forms such as lotions, creams, and ointments specially formulated for different skin types.

If you have dry and flaky skin, you should go for a thick ointment that will deeply hydrate your skin. Creams have usually a thinner consistency as compared to ointment, so they are quite suitable for people with normal skin. Lotions are more suitable for people with oily skin as they are lightest in consistency.

Some Quick Home Remedies For A Radiant Skin

Back in the days when there was no concept of skincare products people took full advantage of nature and started doing skincare with the most common ingredients that are part of our daily life.

Raw Milk Massage

Raw Milk Massage

Milk is not only beneficial for our bones as it provides seamless benefits to our skin. Lactic acid is one of the main ingredients of milk, it helps in reducing the tanning of your skin, reduces dullness, and brings an instant glow.

The best way to use milk in skin care is to freeze it in an ice cube tray. Fill up your ice tray with raw milk and let it freeze. Now rub it gently over your face and neck leave it for some time and rinse it with water.

Oatmeal Scrub

We know oats are a great breakfast option, but do you know oat scrub is super amazing for your dull skin? Oatmeal scrub gently exfoliates your skin and leaves behind smoother and brighter skin.

Take 2 tablespoons of oats and grind it into fine powder. Now add 1 tablespoon of yogurt and a few drops of coconut oil to make a fine paste. Gently apply the scrub to your cleansed skin. Rub in a circular motion for a minute and rinse it with lukewarm water.

Strawberry Mask

Strawberry Mask

Take a handful of strawberries and blend it with 1 teaspoon of honey. Now apply this paste on your face and neck evenly and leave it for 20 minutes.

Rinse off with lukewarm water followed by cold water. We recommend you always use fresh strawberries. Do not use canned, tinned, or frozen strawberries that are available in Supermart.

Avocado Mask

Suffering from extremely dry skin with itchy patches all around? Give it a try avocado mask. Avocados are the skin’s superfood that is full of omega-3 fatty acids.
