Question by paranoia: What’s the skin care order for: cleanse, exfoliate, moisturizer, tone?
I’m a complete beginner at skin care please help me

1) Do I suppose to cleanse, tone, exfoliate then moisturizer? What is the order? Am I missing any other ‘important’ steps, I think you suppose to add sunblock lotion after moisturize step?

2) I’m confused in doing all this I believe you suppose to use hot water and cold water at curtain times for pores how does that work please?

Bonus Question) How often do I suppose to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, tone?

This could be different for everyone. It all depends on your skin type and what you’re trying to accomplish with a routine. But for me personally I cleanse, tone and then moisturize. I only exfoliate once or twice a week because doing it too often can damage and wear down your skin. My moisturizer has SPF I don’t need to add more sun screen after wards. But it really just comes down to your skin type. I have sensitive/combination skin so your steps could be completely different if you had oily skin. As far as the water goes, steam from hot water is great for opening your pores. But for rinsing off any product I would recommend using warm water and patting your face dry instead of rubbing the moisture off. Hope this helps(:
