Step 1 – Cleanse
Your first step would be to cleanse your skin because no matter how effective a skin brightening product is, it’s not going to be as effective if you apply it on oily and dirty skin. Cleansing your skin ensures that the products you apply will be more effective in penetrating your skin layers.
When it comes to a morning routine, you’ll want to find a way to gently cleanse your face without stripping or drying your skin. You can start by using a gentle cleanser to wake or prep your skin. Then, try our cleansing gel or milk from the DermatoCLEAN (HYALURON) range. We don’t want to start off with any harsh chemicals, as it might irritate your skin. Think of cleansing your face as the foundation of your skincare routine.
Note: Be cautious with overheated water as it may strip your skin of its natural oils, further damaging an already-sensitive skin barrier.
Step 2 – Serum (acts as a brightening serum)
Serums are usually used right after moisturising, with the intention of delivering healthy nutrients directly into the skin. Since serums are made up of smaller molecules, they’re perfect for targeting specific skincare concerns like dark spots or wrinkles (as they can penetrate deeply into the skin). After years of active research, Eucerin has developed a patented ingredient in the brightening range called Thiamidol — which is clinically- and dermatologically-proven to effectively reduce pigment spots, as well as prevent the production of abnormal pigmentation.

Step 3 – Moisturise
You should always choose a moisturiser that’s based on where you live, and is suitable for your skin type. If you live in a tropical country where it’s often hot and humid, you could opt for lightweight moisturisers (usually water- or gel-based). This leaves your skin light throughout the day — whereas if you live in colder countries, you might want to consider moisturisers that are heavier in weight (cream-based). However, the key is to choose one that includes hyaluronic acid as it helps retain moisture better than any other ingredient.
Step 4 – SPF
Dullness of the skin is often caused by the Sun, as it depletes the skin of its levels of essential fatty acids. Hence, to achieve radiant skin, integrating SPF is an essential part to your morning skincare routine. To make sure you’re getting proper coverage, choose an SPF30 or higher sunblock and reapply every 2–3 hours.
