how many steps in your routine?!

Hi everyone! Let’s discuss the number of steps in skincare routines! Tell me below how many steps your have now, what they are (eg 3 steps: cleanse, moisturise, spf). Also tell me about how many steps you started with and how many you aim to have in your “perfect skin care routine”. In my experience, I’ve often used too many products or too little products. Im trying to find the right number of products that will leave my skin glowing and stress free. At the moment I have a 6 step morning routine and a 5 step night routine (same products, both times except spf). So tell me about yours so we can learn from each other! 🥰

For me it's about 7-8 steps for every routine, depends on what active I'm using. Yes maybe for some people this is too many but my skin is really dry, I used so many toners and essence to fill the dryness on my skin lol and then slug it with Vaseline as the last step. I'm not using so much or high active on my skin because how sensitive they're, mostly my products only focus on hydration and moisturizing. I'm using same product for both routine AM and PM so my skin not getting stress because too many products

omg same!! I layer on the toners like nobody’s business because my skin is so dehydrated in winter and I’ve laid off the acids and actives for several years now because I really overexfoliated my skin 😭🙈 but yeah, a toner is a must have for me

I do maximum of 5-6 haha: Morning: cleanse, tone, serum, moist (if i feel hydrate enough i skip), then sunscreen. Night: double cleanse, tone, facial oils, serum, moist/mask. Depending what i feel. I believe less is more ❤️🥺

that’s some commitment 🙏🏾 my skin might leave my face if I try to put 10 products on it smh. I might give it a shot this weekend just to test it out 😈 do you find your skin like a certain number of steps?

I tend to have around 4 steps at day (cleanser, toner, serum & a moisturizing sunblock) , 5-7 steps at night (cleanser, toner, two serums, moisturizer, eye cream) ✨ tho I’ve noticed that less is definitely more & ive been trying to scale down my night routine 😫
