Everyone wants to look the best we can. If we had the ability to opt for gorgeous, smooth and radiant skin, we would. It’s a no-brainer. Choosing to have a solid skincare routine is one of the ways to be sure this is possible.
But what’s a good skin care routine? Do you have a standard size that will work for all ?… There isn’t a single size that fits all. All of us have distinct kinds of skin, and each type will need it’s specific, personal care. So the question then is what do I know what’s right for me?
Whether you have dry, oily, combination, sensitive or acne prone skin we will attempt to provide a simple easy-to-follow instructions on how to begin your journey into the complicated world of skincare products.
Any effective skincare routine must consist of a cleanser and a toner, then a moisturizer and then a serum.
The cleanser you select should be one that meets your personal skin’s needs. For oily/combination/acne prone skin a good place to start would be a gel cleanser or something like Elizabeth’s Arden Visible NAD + Face Serum Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser for combination skin to ensure that not too much oil is added. If you have dry skin, something like an oil cleanser might be the best choice for you. StriVectin Comforting Cleanser would be the perfect choice for you.
In the next step, we recommend a type of toner. There are three categories of toners you can choose from. First, if you suffer from dry skin then a toner with a low alcohol content would be best. Alcohol can dry your skin so avoid it when you are able. For Lancome, the Tonique Confort Hydrating Toner would be something we’d recommend to you for this. If you suffer from oily skin, you might need to select a toner that exfoliates. This is due to the increased likelihood of oil getting caught in your pores and causing breakouts. If you suffer from combination skin , then it’s a an individual choice, but you can use either type of cleanser but you should avoid any that contains alcohol, particularly when it’s a large concentration.
Following is the serum. Some people may wonder if it is important to use an oil and a moisturizer… and if you want to get the best outcomes, then yes. A serum is designed to give your skin deeper and more extensive benefits than a moisturiser can. They penetrate deep into the epidermis and provide an intense boost of nourishment to your skin. The many types of serums include exfoliating serums, brightening serums as well as anti-ageing serums. moisturizing serums and firming products. Depending on what you hope to achieve and what your skin’s requirements are, naturally determine what serum you pick.
Also, moisturisers. There are many moisturisers on the market, however to simplify things, we’ve put them into 3 categories. Humectants, Emollients and Occlusive. In simple terms, humectants have been made for people who have dry skin primarily and help to seal in water to nourish the epidermis (the upper layer of the skin). They accomplish this by drawing in water from the air around them and then pulling water up from the dermis (the layer below it, the epidermis) to hydrate the surface skin layers. They’re also great for those with oily skin but still want to moisturize as they don’t add any excess oil to your skin. Emollients are wonderful since they replicate the effect of the oils naturally found within your skin. They can also reduce the volume of loss of fluid (we all lose an indeterminate approximately of water per day partly due to the gaps between skin cells) by filling the gaps between skin cells. Our final recommendation will be the Occlusives. These are designed for extremely dry skin and for people with eczema-related conditions. They create a physical barrier in between the surface of your body and your surroundings, which helps to keep moisture in and preventing further water loss. They’re surprisingly thick when compared to other moisturisers.
