The first step is to find the right products for your skin type. There are four main types: oily, dry, combination and sensitive. These are based on the level of moisture your skin needs and the type of product that will give you the best results.
You can start by using a cleanser or toner, which will exfoliate and cleanse your skin. Then, apply a moisturizer that contains sun protection if you want to prevent wrinkles from forming. If you have dry skin, choose a moisturizer that provides extra nourishment.
If you have oily skin, choose an oil-free moisturizer that works with your skin type to control shine throughout the day. If you have sensitive skin, try using a mild cleanser combined with an astringent such as witch hazel or aloe vera gel instead of soap or anything else harsh on the face.
The first step in your skincare routine is cleansing, which removes any dirt or oil that may have accumulated on the surface of your skin. Cleansing is done with a gentle exfoliator or cleanser, which helps remove dead cells and debris from the surface of your skin.
Cleansers can be used daily or weekly depending on your skin type and needs. If you’re using a cleanser every day, you may want to use a milder one to avoid irritation and redness.
Exfoliating is an important step in maintaining healthy, glowing skin. It removes dead cells that can build up on your face over time, leaving behind more noticeable lines and wrinkles than before. Exfoliators can be gentle enough for daily use or stronger ones for more intense exfoliation at first use (such as those with alpha-hydroxy acids).
Apply moisturizer to your entire face, neck, and chest every morning after cleansing. If you have oily skin, apply an oil-free moisturizer that contains SPF 15 or higher during the day as well as before bedtime. If you have dry skin, apply an oil-free moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher every evening before bedtime as well.
Wash your face with a mild cleanser at least once a day. Don’t over-saturate your skin by using too much product, either. This can result in over-drying and irritation. Exfoliate gently with an exfoliating mask or scrub once or twice per week. This should be done in the evening after cleansing so that it does not interfere with makeup application later in the day.
