Well, what can we say? Everyone is different. Sot the short answer is: There's really no “best” way. It's about listening to your body.

Here we will talk about the right order, the duration, and the knowledge of applying different skin care products. We'll make it easy to understand… we promise!
If you have always failed to implement the accurate morning or night time skincare routine, we will also go into a deeper dive on how to set up your skincare routine in the right way.
A Healthy Skincare Routine
Step 1: Cleanser
The first step is to wash your face! The role of a face wash in a skincare routine is essential for maintaining healthy, clean, and balanced skin. Essentially what it does as the first step is: remove the impurities, makeup, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other types of pollutants that your skin endured.
Cleansing the skin, controlling oil, maintaining hydration, prepping the skin for other products, and providing a refreshing and soothing experience are the main benefits of a face wash. It's an essential step towards achieving and maintaining healthy, radiant skin.
The Daily Dose Purifying Facial Cleanser is a face wash we swear by. 100% organic, and natural Castile soap is a multi-purpose product that not just removes impurities from the skin but also maintains its pH. The natural ingredients in Castile soap is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids that help moisturize and nourish the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. When used as a face wash, Castile soap provides a mild and effective cleansing action, removing dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
Step 2: Toner
The primary role of toner in the skincare routine is to rejuvenate your skin without eliminating its natural moisture. It also preps the skin to absorb the rest of your routine. Hint: Always apply your face serum on a damp skin from the toner. When your skin is slightly damped, your skin absorbs the following products better with a deeper penetration.
Here are a few toning benefits we simply love, and this is why it's a major step that we don't want to miss out on:
- Helps to restore the skin's natural pH balance
- Strengthen its natural protective barrier
- Acts as a secondary cleanser, effectively removing these impurities and ensuring a thorough cleansing process
- Tighten and minimize the appearance of pores
- Contain humectants, which help to attract and retain moisture in the skin
- Provides an added layer of hydration, leaving the skin plump, refreshed, and prepped for other products
- Soothing and calming properties
At Babe Essentials, we have you covered with 2 amazing facial toners.
The Rose Tonic will help to remove excess dirt, traces of oil, balance the skin’s pH level, and reduce the presence of pores. Rose water is an ingredient more people should take advantage of. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated and sensitive skin, and is particularly beneficial for reducing redness, inflammation, and skin conditions such as rosacea and eczema. Rose water also contains antioxidants that play a big role in controlling premature aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The Aloe Tonic on the other hand is made from Aloe Vera. Aloe is known to soothe and calm any skin reactions or irritations. If you had a long day under the sun, run straight to aloe vera, packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that nourish the skin and support its healing process.
