"Do I Need A 7-Step Skincare Routine?"



It seems like in this modern age, we are being presented with endless options with just about everything. For example, your morning cafe trip has been transformed into a questionnaire of what kind of milk you prefer – Soy? Oat? Almond? Low fat? Non-fat? (Just like that TVC… please don’t tell me you’re too young to remember THAT ad? *immediately starts questioning my life choices and if I’m on the right path).


Okay, where were we… oh yes, skincare!

Over time, we have seen the introduction of serums, oils, toners etc. But the question is, do we really need all that?

The answer is yes! But the real answer is: Yes… but not all at once.

Our Alya Skin Glow-Getter Bundle consists of a Foaming Micellar Cleanser, Pomegranate Exfoliator, Australian Pink Clay Mask, Pore Perfecting Elixir, Vitamin C Supercharged Serum, Pink Pearl Illuminating Eye Cream, & *gasp* Native Berries Moisturiser.

Here at Alya Skin HQ, we recommend alternating the exfoliator, clay mask, & elixir – as using them straight after one another can, inadvertently, do more damage than good. This is due to the deep cleansing capabilities of all three. By removing dirt and other impurities, the products are stripping the skin of excess oil and removing dead skin cells. Yes this sounds like a good thing BUT if you’re using an excessive amount of these products, it can strip your skin of natural oils, causing your skin to lose balance of it’s moisture levels; leaving you to develop dull and dry skin – and we definitely can’t live, love, laugh in those conditions.

To prevent this from happening, we have written a handy guide on how to incorporate our 7-step skincare routine in the correct way:
*Please note that every skin type is different, and everyone can experience different reactions.

1. Foaming Micellar Cleanser
AM/PM
Twice a day, every day

2. Pomegranate Exfoliator
AM/PM
Once a day, every other day
(Try to avoid using it on the same day as the Pore Elixir)

3. Australian Pink Clay Mask
AM/PM
Once a day, every other day

4. Perfecting Pore Elixir
AM/PM
Once a day, every other day
(Try to avoid using it on the same day as the Exfoliator)

5. Vitamin C Supercharged Serum
AM/PM
Twice a day, every day
- If you’re using a retinol in your night routine, try to avoid using the serum as the two ingredients don’t mix well
- Always follow up with an SPF during the day

6. Pink Pearl Illuminating Eye Cream
AM/PM
Twice a day, every day

7. Native Berries Moisturiser
AM/PM
Twice a day, every day

And voila! A 7-step skincare routine for fresh, glowing skin!
