How to Create a Well-Rounded Skincare Routine

With so much skincare advice floating around online, figuring out the right way to create a personalised routine can be confusing. Too often, people end up adding too many products into their routine, making skincare more complicated than it needs to be.

At Victoria’s, we believe in building a simple but effective skincare routine based on professional advice. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to crafting a routine that works for you and helps you meet your skincare goals.

How do I build a skincare routine?

Knowing where to start is the trickiest part of building a skincare routine. To begin with, it’s important to understand that building a skincare routine is not a one-size-fits-all approach. As with many things, what may work for your skin, may not be recommended for someone else’s.

As the first step of building your skincare routine, you should take the time to identify your skin type and your skin goals, as this will determine the strength and type of products you may want to include in your routine.

For example, if you have sensitive skin, you may want to steer clear of intense Vitamin A products as it may irritate your skin. Or, if you have acne-prone skin, you may want to find a Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) product to help with oil control.

How do I personalise my skincare routine?

As a rule of thumb, usually all skincare routines contain a cleanser, moisturiser, and SPF. However, to achieve your skin goals, you want to make sure that these products have the ingredients necessary to address your concerns. Plus, there are many other products on the market, like serums and night creams, that can provide additional benefits for your skin.

Here are just a few tips on how to choose products for your unique skin:

Acne-prone skin

  • Incorporate Vitamin B3 into your routine to control oil production
  • Opt for chemical exfoliators that will clear out your pores
  • Choose a foaming cleanser to cleanse your skin without over drying


  • Use SPF in your skincare routine to help prevent further sun damage
  • Incorporate a Vitamin A cream that will diminish pigmentation
  • Choose a Vitamin C product to reverse sun damage

Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Use a Vitamin C serum to repair signs of ageing on the skin
  • Moisturise to keep the skin hydrated and plump
  • Incorporate Vitamin A into your skincare routine to boost collagen

Rosacea or sensitive skin

  • Opt for a gentle cleanser that soothes the skin
  • Look for products that will repair your skin barrier and provide hydration
  • Choose polyhydroxy acids instead of AHAs to gently exfoliate your skin

Everyday skin

  • Find a gentle soap free cleanser that will soothe your skin
  • Use a Vitamin C product to protect your skin from environmental factors
  • Incorporate active ingredients like Vitamin C and Vitamin A to maintain your skin’s appearance

How do I layer my skincare routine?

Cleansing the skin is the first step of any daytime or nighttime routine. After cleansing, the order of your toners and serums can sometimes be mixed and matched, unless they’re best used in the daytime vs. nighttime.

For example, products with Vitamin C help defend your skin against environmental factors, so It’ll best be applied during the day. Vitamin A, on the other hand, can make your skin more prone to sun damage, so should only be used during nighttime.

Here’s a sample ordering of a skincare routine:


  1. Cleanser
  2. Daytime Serums/Toners (ex. Vitamin C)
  3. Moisturiser
  4. SPF


  1. Cleanser
  2. Nighttime Serums/Toners (ex. Hydroxy acids)
  3. Night Cream (Ex. Retinal)

Remember these skincare tips

Beyond the routine itself, there are key principles to remember for long-lasting skincare success.

Stay consistent: Sticking to your routine, even on lazy days, makes all the difference. Your skin craves stability and responds best to regular care.

Be patient: Results take time, often weeks or months. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see instant changes.

Embrace the skin purge: You may experience skin purging when introducing a new skincare product, because your body is getting rid of all the gunk hiding beneath your skin’s surface at an accelerated rate. Don’t let this deter you from your skincare routine – it should subside in a few weeks.

Seek professional guidance: Don’t hesitate to consult a skin professional for personalised advice, especially if you have specific concerns or sensitive skin.
