How to Build a Skincare Routine

When establishing a skincare routine, trust KISS — short for “keep it simple, stupid” — a ’60s-era design principle established by the US Navy. No, that doesn’t mean you should opt for the all-in-one product you find populating the men’s aisles in chain retailers.

Instead, it means limiting the steps you take to protect and replenish your skin to the bare minimum. Why? Because as easy as it can be to adopt a new product as soon as it catches your eye, or promises specific results, you’re likely overspending on something superfluous. That being said, reducing your product inventory down to the equivalent of dish soap for the sake of being frugal doesn’t cut either.

According to Dr. Jeremy Fenton — Medical Director for Midtown Manhattan’s Schweiger Dermatology Group and winner of the Marion B. Sulzberger Award for Excellence in Dermatology — there’s a defined order of importance and optionality, steps you shouldn’t skip and products you can avoid altogether (if you want). “These are your basic components,” he says. “With them you’re covering 95 percent of what you need.”

About Schweiger Dermatology Group

Schweiger Dermatology Group was founded to help make excellent dermatology care accessible throughout the Northeast. In 2010, Dr. Eric Schweiger started the practice with a single location in Midtown Manhattan. When he saw the need for high-quality dermatology care that did not require weeks or months of waiting to see a qualified provider, his vision of a multi-location practice was born.
