How to Achieve Radiant Skin with Easy Rituals: A Comprehensive Guide

Everyone wants to have radiant skin, but not everyone knows how to get it. A good skincare routine is essential for achieving a healthy and glowing complexion. Here is a comprehensive guide on how to achieve radiant skin, including tips for cleansing, exfoliating, toning, moisturizing, using serums, and protecting your skin from the sun. But let’s make it easy for you. Sometimes the word “skincare routine” can be overwhelming or intimidating. Here at Babe Essentials, we are taking you back to the basics.

Step 1: Cleanse


First, let’s ask ourselves this question… Do you really need to cleanse your skin twice a day? Our simple answer is: it depends on your skin type and of course your lifestyle. We prefer opting out in the morning. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may need to wash your face twice a day to remove excess oil and dirt. However, if you have dry or sensitive skin, washing your face twice a day can be too harsh and can strip away your skin's natural oils. In this case, you may want to simply rinse your skin with micellar or regular room temperature water.

Speaking of cleansing, we know that it’s the first step to any good skincare routine. Cleansing removes dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin, leaving it clean and refreshed. The Babe Essentials “Daily Dose” is pure castile soap that is gentle and made for all skin types. If you have dry skin, using castile soap once a day is all you need. You may want to look for a creamy or lotion-based cleanser, with natural and clean ingredients of course. If you have oily skin, the Daily Dose is perfect. We believe in fragrance free products, so whatever cleanser you decide to use,

Step 2: Exfoliate Your Skin Once or Twice a Week

We said it before and we’ll say it again! Do not exfoliate your skin every day. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. This can help to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and make your skin look brighter. Choose a chemical exfoliant or a gentle physical scrub.

There are 2 types of exfoliants: Chemical and Physical Chemical exfoliants work by breaking down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, and these include alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic acid and lactic acid, and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), such as salicylic acid. Physical exfoliants work by physically removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and come in a variety of forms, including scrubs, gloves, and brushes. Always go for the gentle exfoliant. Don’t overdue it!

Step 3: Use a Toner

We love toners here at Babe Essentials. A toner helps to restore your skin's pH balance and remove any remaining dirt or oil. Look for a toner that is alcohol-free and contains hydrating ingredients. Some common ingredients found in toners include aloe vera, rose water, and glycerin. 

In the past, toners were primarily used to restore the skin's pH balance after cleansing. However, modern toners offer a variety of additional benefits and have been developed to address a wide range of skin concerns. Toners are formulated to hydrate, exfoliate, shrink pores, regulate oil production, calm and brighten the skin.

The Babe tonics include the ingredients of Aloe or Rose Water. Both tonics are packed with natural source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. You can’t go wrong, especially if you have sensitive skin. Our toners are free from toxic chemicals and alcohol. You can get your hands on The Tonic Duo to have the best of both worlds. 

 Step 4: Apply a Serum

Serums are concentrated formulas that can target specific skin concerns. If you have dry skin, look for a serum that contains hyaluronic acid. If you have acne-prone skin, look for a serum that contains salicylic acid. If you have hyperpigmentation, look for a serum that contains vitamin C.

Serums are usually lightweight and are quickly absorbed by the skin. Serums can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including: acne, age spots, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, dry, oily, and sensitive skin.

Choose between our 2 serums:

The Cure: Rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and antioxidants, our Aloe Clarifying Serum hydrates, soothes, nourishes, calms irritation, prevents and treats acne, heals and repairs, prevents fine lines, and evens out skin tone.

Vita-C: This is a 2-in-2 Vitamin C serum and tonic that is ultra-hydrating, and formulated to brighten the skin. We created this serum especially for your morning skincare routine. The benefits are endless but here are the main reasons you would want to use a vitamin c serum: Fades dark spots and acne marks, provides a healthy glow, boost collagen production, soothes and hydrates, and aids as an anti-aging add on.

Step 5: Moisturize Your Skin Every Day

Moisturizing is essential for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. Look for a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type and contains ingredients that will help to nourish your skin. Some common ingredients found in moisturizers include ceramides, peptides, and natural oils.

At Babe Essentials we love face oils: We have one for each skin type. Here, you can read more about why we love face oils and why you shouldn’t be afraid to use them. Choose between these 3 face oils to use as your everyday moisturizer.


Step 6: Wear Sunscreen Every Day

Sunscreen is the most important step in any skincare routine. It helps to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, which can cause premature aging, skin cancer, and other sun-related damage. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even on cloudy days.
