The following table provides key details about how each type of product works, when it should be applied, and what results you can expect. Keep in mind that if you have multiple skincare concerns, you may need to add more than one treatment or targeted treatment product. You may be able to just add one targeted treatment product to your routine, or you might need to alternate its use with the other products. With a more advanced routine, some experimentation is needed to discover which method and frequency of application works best.

This simple, step-by-step routine covers the basic types of products everyone should use and the order in which to use them every day. These steps apply regardless of your skin type (oily, dry, normal, or combination).
Learn why exfoliation is so important and which exfoliant to use.
Learn about moisturizers, anti-aging, and antiwrinkle products.
The Advanced Routine includes targeted treatments you can add to your Essential Routine to treat your personal skincare concerns, such as acne, red marks, wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, or rosacea.
For example, if your sole concern is dry skin, you'll do fine by following the Essential Routine. But if you have dry skin and wrinkles or oily skin and wrinkles and breakouts you will want to follow the Advanced Routine for best results.
The Advanced Routine includes a toner as the second step, morning and evening. If you've never used a well-formulated toner before, prepare to be amazed by the results! Learn why toner is such an important step in a comprehensive skincare routine.
