Building a skincare routine is like building a good wardrobe. It’s best to start with the staples like jeans and t-shirts first, then add more items (like chunky hipster cardigans and poncy pocket squares) as you learn what works for you.
Unlike food, water, oxygen and beer, skincare isn’t considered essential to our survival. Then again, neither are most of the things we rely on to get around in this modern world. But just try to get through a single week without wearing deodorant, brushing your teeth or wearing pants. Essential for survival? No. Essential for being a functional adult? Yes.
