Do you have ANY SKIN ISSUES??
I DO.....AND IVE HAD IT ALL..ACNE..HYPERPIGMENTATION,.OILY SKIN TO DRY SKIN..
IT IS VITAL TO KNOW KEY COMPONENTS IN BUILDING YOUR PERFECT SKIN REGIMEN...SO I SAY
LET'S DIVE RIGHT INTO IT..SHALL WE?
Step 1: Know Your Skin Type The right routine starts with knowing what kind of skin you have. Then you'll know how to take care of it.
Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough.
Oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have big pores.
Combination skin is dry in some spots (cheeks) and oily in others (forehead, nose, and chin)
Sensitive skin may sting, burn, or itch after you use some makeup or other products.
Normal skin is balanced, clear, and not sensitive.
Step 2: Cleaning Normal/Combo Skin Don't just grab whatever soap is in the shower or at the sink to wash your face. And don't feel like you have to buy fancy, expensive products, either. Just find skin care that works for you. Apply a gentle cleanser or soap with your fingertips. Don't scrub your face. Rinse with plenty of warm water, then pat dry. If your skin dries out or gets oily, try a different cleanser. Step 2: Cleaning Dry Skin For this skin type, use a gentle cleanser that doesn't have alcohol or fragrances. Those ingredients can dry you out even more. Gently wash your skin, then rinse with plenty of warm water. Don't use hot water -- it removes the natural oils from your face faster. Try exfoliating once a week to get rid of flaky skin cells. It will make your skin look clearer and more even.
Step 2: Cleaning Oily Skin Use an oil-free foaming cleanser to wash your face. Rinse with plenty of warm water. You may want to use a toner or astringent after, but be careful because it might irritate your skin. These products can remove extra oil, which makes your face less shiny, and help keep skin clean. Step 2: Cleaning Sensitive Skin
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and rinse with warm water. Don't rub your skin with a towel -- gently pat it dry. Exfoliating may irritate sensitive skin. Try not to use products that have alcohol, soap, acid, or fragrance. Instead, look on the label for calming ingredients like aloe, chamomile, green tea polyphenols, and oats. The fewer ingredients in a product, the happier your face may be. Step 3: Moisturize You may think you're too young to need moisturizer -- or your skin is too oily --
but all skin types need one every day. Apply it while your skin is still damp from washing or rinsing to help seal in moisture. If you have acne or your skin is oily, find a moisturizer that's lightweight and oil-free, so it won't block your pores.
Step 4: Put on Sunscreen (THIS IS KEY!!!!!) Your moisturizer may already have sunscreen in it. But it's a good idea to use separate protection, too. The sun can damage your skin in only 15 minutes. Look for a sunscreen that gives broad-spectrum protection with an SPF of at least 30. Wear it every day, even if it's not sunny and even if it's cold. Reapply every 2 hours. EXTRA INFO...
