If you're over the days of multi-step skincare procedures and a medicine cabinet full of products you never use, we've got the list for you.

Skincare sets are the pinnacle of simplicity. You get all the goodies you need in one tidy package, instead of scouring the world wide web for a tiny jar of this and an elusive bottle of that. Life might be messy, but taking care of your skin doesn't have to be. That's why we rounded up a list of the best natural skincare sets that Grove members rave about — and if you've got questions, don't worry. We've got answers.

FAQs

When do I apply sunscreen in my skincare routine?

Sunscreen is a super important part of your skincare routine. It can lower your risk of developing skin cancer and stave off the effects of sun-related skin aging. But there's a lot of confusion about when to use it in your beauty routine.

The answer is that it depends on what type of sunscreen you use. Chemical sunscreen goes on before moisturizer because it needs time to sink into your skin in order to be effective. Mineral sunscreen goes on after moisturizer because it acts as a physical blocker and works best if it gets to sit on top. Apply makeup last. If you want to feed two birds with one scone, you can snag a tinted sunscreen that's part foundation, part sun protectant.


What are chemical exfoliants?

We're so glad you asked! Chemical exfoliants are one of our favorite topics. These nifty products exfoliate your skin using a variety of acids. Sounds kinda freaky, eh? It's not! Acids like AHA and BHA are safe for most skin types, and they come with a ton of benefits.

AHAs, like lactic and glycolic acid, are great for reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. They also help lighten age spots and hyperpigmentation in addition to exfoliating dead skin cells and brightening skin. How's that for a resume? BHAs, the most famous of which is salicylic acid, are ideal for folks who struggle with oily skin and acne. BHAs also share many benefits with AHAs, like brightening skin and smoothing out fine lines.


Do I need to wash my face twice a day?

How often you wash your face depends on your skin type. People with dry skin or sensitive skin might opt for once a day to prevent too much skin irritation. If you’ve got oily skin, washing twice a day might help you stay on top of excess oil production. Always talk with your dermatologist if you’re not sure which washing routine your skin will benefit from the most.

That being said, if you wear makeup and sunscreen during the day, you should probably wash yoru face at night. All those products could really go to town overnight, digging deep into your pores and clogging ‘em up. Ditch the resulting dull skin and breakouts by washing your face before you go to bed. We’ve got a few highly-rated face wash recommendations if you’re on the lookout for a new scrub!
