Tips For Daily Skin Care Routine

Tips for skin care can be one of the most confusing things in life. Taking care of your skin is becoming more essential than ever with the growing pollution and the lack of responsibility by governments and people to avoid polluting our planet. The fact is, this pollution combined with the daily fatigue puts stress on your body and causes you to look older than your age. As such you turn to skin care products for rescue. But as we know skin care cosmetics alone will not help to get you that glamorous look. You also need a daily skin care routine, to keep your skin looking smooth, healthier and radiant. According to Dr. MacGregor, “every person needs an individualized skincare regimen.” Your skin care routine is personal and needs to fit with your skin type. This cannot be emphasized more; you need to know what works well with your skin type.

“Know your skin type” -Before deciding on daily skin care routine

One of the major mistakes people make is using a skin care product that doesn’t necessarily agrees with their skin type. Knowing your skin type is the most important step to achieving great looking skin, no matter how good skin care routine you have. A good practice is to visit a dermatologist for an “expert opinion”, which can works to your advantage in many major ways. Also, it is recommended to have regular checkups, to keep track of changes in your skin. With this information, you can alter your skin care routine according to the changes of your skin. However, take what your dermatologist says and recommends with a “pinch of salt”, but by no means leave without knowing your skin type. It is also essential to know the ingredients of your skin care products and always take care to follow the instruction.

A simple skin care routine to help you to get vibrant looking skin

The aim of this article is to give you a simple and natural skin care routine guide that may or may not work for you, depending on your skin type. It is a general skin care routine that will guide you, but you have to do the work to find out what works best for you.

Step 1: Cleanse – washing your face

Every day your skin is exposed to environmental pollution, stress, dead skin cells along with your make-up cause clogging of the pores and result in unhealthy skin. Washing it may seem as just a simple act, right? Surprisingly, some of these basic habits can cause a whole list of skin woes, including dryness, irritation, oiliness, and breakouts. Check out the 10 biggest face-washing mistakes—and how to fix them. Choose a cleanser that is appropriate for your specific skin type (combination, dry or oily). Washing the face with a cleanser removes make-up, oil and dirt. But be careful not to choose too strong cleanser as this can cause skin irritation. One of the most common mistakes many people make is they try to remove all build-up with a very strong cleanser. This can alleviate nagging skin problems. We recommended to use something natural or organic base, these are often much milder and has almost no side effects.

 

Step 2: Exfoliate– to removing dead skins

You would believe that simply washing your face would be enough, but no matter how strong cleanser you use, it will never remove the deep dead skin cells. This is why you need to use an exfoliation on a regular basis – once or twice a week for mild exfoliation, once or twice a month for more intense treatments – to remove the deep dead skin cells and open the pores. Exfoliate help rejuvenate your skin, reveal healthier, smoother looking skin and also prepare the skin for subsequent treatment. Whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation can help bring new life to your complexion. Read the 5 benefits of exfoliating your skin.

 

Step 3: Tone – balancing skin pH (Optional)

This is something many of you exclude from your collection of skin care products because it is not considered essential. Yes, this is very true if you don’t have oily skin or markedly plugged pores. Toners can help remove excess oils and dead skin cells that may lurk on the face after washing. But even if you are not suffering from oily skin, a well-formulated (natural) toner can provide truly amazing benefits for your skin. Toner help to restore skin’s pH balance caused by minerals left behind after washing, that raise the skin’s natural pH to a level that isn’t good for your skin.

Just be sure to avoid products that have menthol, peppermint and citrus oils or toners with a very high alcohol or fragrance content as these can cause irritation of the skin. Depending on your skin type, these ingredients may potentially give an allergic reaction. If used, applied with a clean cotton pad and should be used at least once day.

 

Step 4: Repair – treating damage

This step is where you address specific problems you may have or want to prevent such as sun damage, dark spots, lines/wrinkles, acne, etc. There are many treatments designed to prevent and repair aging skin, choose one in accordance with your skin care goals. Exfoliation will help, but it’s wise to also use products containing repairing ingredients such as peptides and retinol to minimize lines, wrinkles and restore elasticity of the skin. These are best used at night, which is when your skin goes through its reparative cycle. But you can also use an organic or natural base antioxidant serum, for example, Vitamin C Serum to help prevent free radical damage from occurring on the skin. Antioxidant serums work best when used under your moisturizer and is best to apply in the morning and at night before going to bed.

 

Step 5: Moisturize – hydrating the skin

Every time you cleanse, tone, exfoliate you are removing essential oils with the dead skin cells from the skin and leave you skin dry. Even if your skin is naturally oily, it may need a boost of hydration to look its best. “Plump skin cells and increased water content result in a more youthful appearance and more light-reflecting qualities,” says Dr. Deirdre Hooper, MD, a dermatologist at Audubon Dermatology in New Orleans. Moisturizer helps hydrates and plumps up skin cells and softens the surface of your skin. When your skin is soft and moisturized, it feels great. Moisturizers range from light to very rich, choose one for your age and skin care needs.

 

Step 6: Protect – prevent damage

It is useless to go through a complete skin care routine to get gorgeous skin and then walk out into the sun unprotected. As you know, the sun’s UV rays can cause wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone and discolorations. So depend on the time of the year and where you are located, take care to apply a natural sun block of at least SPF 30 (even in the winter) to prevent this type of damage. Try to limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. also wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses. Protect yourself, no one will do it for you.
