Skincare Routine for Perfect Skin



Almost every woman no matter what age has some kind of skincare issue or struggle, we may battle with blemishes, wrinkles or excessive oil at times, thanks to certain products geared for your skin type and a skincare routine we can come close to perfection. 


With so many products to choose from, it’s sometimes difficult to find which facial formula works best.


Get to know your skin type - Oily, combination, dry or normal. 


Once you know what your skin is like you can learn to treat it in the best way possible.


Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough.
Oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have big pores.
Combination skin is dry in some areas and oily in others e.g. (forehead, nose, and chin).
Normal skin is balanced, clear, and not sensitive.




STEP 1: CLEANING

You don’t need several different cleansers or buy some fancy, expensive products. You just need to find skincare that works for you. 


Choose one that removes the dirt and makeup and gets into the skin not just sits on top.


Rinse with plenty of warm water, and then pat dry.

If you find your skin doesn’t change or dries out or gets oily, try a different cleanser.

The best way to find out what works is testing products out.




STEP 2: TONER

A step that is so often skipped is using a toner after you clean your face. A toner preps your skin to be more receptive to hydration and moisturizer.

In order to get the best effect of your product, use a toner before applying moisturizer. They remove extra oil, making your face less shiny, and help keep your skin clean.

Some toners like Aveda Botanical Kinetics, have an exfoliant for maximum treatment to wipe away surface cells getting beneath the skin into pores for a smoother, clearer complexion.

How to use: After cleansing, apply a small amount on a cotton ball and gently wipe across face and throat in upward, outward motions. Avoid eye area.




STEP 3: MOISTURIZING

Finish your routine with applying moisturizer. Depending on your skin type you should choose the best formula possible.

Moisturizers block the pores and hydrate your skin throughout the day and night. 

Hydration is essential for healthy, balanced, clear skin no matter the skin type.


Cream Best for drier skin or skins in dry climate
Lotion Best for dry to dry/ combination skin
Gel/Serum Best for oilier skin, or acne prone skin




ACNE

Ever since I was teenager I have been battling breakouts. Now that I am a few years old (wink) I am still struggling - not fun!


So if you are way past your teen years but still have this issue you’re not alone. 


The warmer months are especially bad for those of us with oily skin, the added moisture in the air is a skin disaster.

Try to look for products with salicylic acid, Cleansers that contain glycolic or salicylic acid can prevent breakouts.


Once a week I use a deep cleansing mask to get all that dirt out of my pores. Freeman, Montagne and Earth Kiss Face have masks in convenient packages, great prices and they deeply clean and moisturize the skin.


Every routine needs a switch here and there depending on your skin issues. 


Season change and climate change will have an effect on your skincare routine, you may need to adjust depending on the issue.



What are your skincare issues? Any tips for the best skin possible?
