A healthy Skin Routine looks like

Your morning routine is all about protection from the sun, pollution and the elements, so leave your peel pads and treatment products, for the night.


In the morning, start by splashing your face with warm water or, if you must wash with a gentle face cleanser designed for your skin type. Try out our DNA EPINEW Maxi Cleanse for softer, healthier-looking skin.


Most people choose to skip toners, partly because there’s a lingering assumption that most toners are harsh and irritate the skin. Fortunately, that’s not the case anymore. While they don’t physically “shrink” pores, the new breed of toners can serve multiple purposes, like act as a delivery system for antioxidants, vitamin B derivatives and even toning acids.

Additionally, each type of toner is intended for a different skin issue, so it’s important to use the right kind for your skin concern.

Eye cream

According to research, it’s vital to apply an eye cream at least every night, if not twice a day, starting in your 20s. It’s about maintaining the health and thickness of the eyelid skin. Improving the skin quality in this area early on ensures that the eyelid skin does not easily lose laxity and its smooth appearance later on. For best results, consistency is key.

Regular use of eye cream over time will keep the eyelid skin elastic and can improve or prevent against some fine lines or collagen loss. Remember that nothing is magic. Results don’t occur overnight. You can also further protect the delicate skin around your eyes by choosing an eye cream with SPF or applying sunscreen every day.

Spot treatment

According to research prescription medications and acne spot treatments, like serums, need to be applied as close to the skin as possible to maximize their benefits. As acne spot treatments differ inactive ingredients, check your product packaging or consult your dermatologist for the best way to apply it.

Prescription-strength benzoyl peroxide, a common acne spot treatment ingredient, typically has a working time of 1 to 3 hours. Remember that acne spot treatments can dry out your skin, so always apply only on spots where you need it.


Yes, everyone needs a moisturizer, even if you have oily skin. Even though your body has its own natural lubricating system consisting of glands that hide away oils (or sebum) to maintain a protective coating against harsh outside conditions and infections, most of us do need extra hydration after the havoc that sun, weather and harsh chemicals wreak on our skin.

Most experts recommend that the best time to apply a moisturizer is while the skin is still damp, so the sooner you go through applying your serum and treatment, the sooner you’re able to lock in much-needed hydration with your moisturizer.
